BMW just needs to price this well to compete with the Duke. They did a good job with the g310r, could be classified as an entry level street bike or it could be a mileage friendly bike for touring people. Think it gets around 30KMPL.

Judging from the power numbers it seems as if the Duke will be a bit more zippy in the city.

because KTM is still a relatively niche Euro brand with premium pricing. Honda and Yamaha are dirt cheap in relation. Compare the price of RC390 to the Yamaha R3 for example...

Granted this isn't in USD but the prices in this chart shows that the G310R costs less than it's Yamaha and Ninja competition. I think it's price competitively.

If that's actually what it turns out to be once finally priced on the market that will do a lot for giving them the competitive edge they need, but i'm starting to think that if priced slightly higher than competition that it won't make a significant difference
