The KTM 390 Duke made its debut in India in February 2017. It was an all-new aggressive design that was unseen in the market, and it was an instant hit. However, the life of the bike has not been trouble-free ever since its launch. Right from the beginning, the customers have faced quite a number of problems with the bike.

The problems included randomly restarting TFT displays, bugs in the software of the bike, headlamp not turning off even when the key is removed from the ignition, leakage of fuel, the fuel-filter coming loose, and a battery losing charge without any reason. The problems had gone to an extent that the company had to recall the bikes in Europe in 2017 to fix the issues, either by changing the parts or giving the bike a software update. However, the Indian market did not get any recall as such. On an international level, the company kept on upgrading the software, while the domestic market kept on cribbing about the problems.

KTM has continued the trend and recalled the 2017 390 Duke model for a “Monsoon Kit Fitment”. Giving it a tag of ‘Compulsory’, KTM has recalled the bikes on a polite note. The recalling will focus on three main things; they will arrest the vibrations in the headlamps, change the ECU bracket, and change the rear seat bushings to prevent load on the tail lamp.

If you are a proud owner of the new KTM 390 Duke, it is highly advisable to take your bike in for the fixing of the problems, even if they have not appeared on your bike. The problems can arise at any time, but right now, the monsoon kit is being fitted on your bike for no extra cost. All it would cost you is about one hour for the job to be completed.

The newly launched Honda Amaze got itself a recall due to the electric power steering sensor harness, which when malfunctions, makes the steering heavier. The EPS light also comes on when the problem arrives.

A total of 7290 cars are affected with this faulty part, and those were manufactured between April 17 to May 24, 2018. To check if your car is affected by the recall, one will need to visit the official Honda website and enter the 17-digit vehicle identification number. The problem will be solved free of cost, and the process of replacement will start on July 26, 2018.

2018 Honda Amaze is an all-new story, bringing muscular international-spec Accord inspired fascia and updated interior through this update. The car now starts at INR 5.59 lakh, offering two engine options with a manual and automatic gearbox on both of them.

The engines are similar to those available on 2017 variants, leaving no stone unturned with class-leading performance and astonishing mileage figures. The 1198cc, four-cylinder petrol engine on the new Amaze is good for 90PS at 6000 rpm and 110 Nm at 4800 rpm. The engine offers same output when used with 5-speed manual or CVT gearbox.

When compared in terms of diesel engine performance, the manual gearbox model is good for 100PS and 200Nm while CVT restricts the power to 80PS and 160Nm. The shocking difference is unjustified as most brands offer equal power output from their cars with manual and automatic gearboxes.

The diesel CVT claims 23.8 kmpl of mileage while diesel manual is good for 27.4 kmpl. Honda Amaze rivals Maruti Dzire, Hyundai Xcent, Tata Tigor, Ford Aspire and Volkswagen Ameo in India. The car measures 3995mm in length, 1695mm in width and 1501mm in height. The wheelbase is pretty impressive at 2470mm whereas size is limited to 15-inch only.
