Welcome , its a know issue with either D200 or D390 . The bike does not like to go slow . You need to learn to ride it slow or go FAST ! .I think the KTM engineers are lazy to tune the ECU to better low RPM characteristics .

Aptly described in the above reply.
Drop a gear or two when the engine knocks as it is harmful. Happy revving.
