I was at my local dealer Saturday and they said any day, but we all know how that goes...

I was at Evolution Motorcycles in Melbourne last week and they already had one on the floor.

Looks much better than the last model. Dealer is quoting <$8k AUD ride-away price.

If only I'm still on my Learner permit, I'd be torn between the 390 and the MT-07.

I wonder if they will ever be bothered to come up with an updated model for the RC390. The volume might be too small to justify such investment.

Why couldn't they make it look like a baby RC8??

I too am waiting on the 2017 390 Duke (United States) and as I grow more and more impatient, I'm beginning to question my choice. It seems weekly there are new problem videos about the 390 (out of India). I'm about ready to give up and buy a 690 instead. Ugh!

If I may, what did you end up going with? The 390 is (maybe was) fitting into the budget I feel like spending, at this time.

I went to the total opposite end of the spectrum. I test rode a 2016 Triumph Street Triple. Fell in like be with it. It was more than I wanted to spend but so far it has been worth every penny

Nice. Always a fan of those, as well as a Speed Triple/Ducati Monster & Hypermotard. Actually... I talked to the local Ducati dealer, after your initial response to me. Thanks and enjoy.
