KTM Duke 390‘s owner named Kuber Bhatia from Delhi is reporting that the engine cover of his bike cracked while he was riding in the city at 30 kmph back from office.
kuberbhatia on his Instagram says that
I bought KTM Duke 390 in August-2016 and since I have bought this bike it was giving me perpetual problem. There were huge vibrations, engine oil problems/leak and the list goes on. But today I had a close escape. While coming back from office my bike started giving a very unusual, loud noise and suddenly I heard a blast. When I checked, the bike’s engine (which is made up of high-end aluminium, as they claim) had a HUGE CRACK. The bike could have caught fire or the oil could have spilled over me. Please see what you can do or I will have no option left but to drag you to the court.
