Cant get a 790 at my local dealer

They haven’t even herd from ktm about when they will get any. He told me hopefully spring. But I don’t think he really knew?
Its killing me. I cant even see one in real life? I’m beginning to wonder? Do they really exist? Maybe bigfoot rides one. I can’t wait to sit on one. Love all the info you people are putting up.

I can only assume you are not in the UK
as in the UK we have new bikes, ex demo bikes and second hand bikes for sale currently

all I can say is it will be worth the wait

I'm in the US and picked my 790 earlier this week. They just arrived in the West Coast of the US. The larger dealers each got one, smaller dealers haven't gotten any. The dealer i bought this from told he he's getting one more and has no idea when he'll get that.

Jokingly the dealer said I got the first one in the US which I know isn't so but who cares. Eventually there will be plenty of them available.

Would be helpful to know your location, but I'm going to assume somewhere in NA. Local shops in my area are expecting deliveries to come in the next couple weeks. So you should have a solid eta in the new year.

I purchased mine November 25th. It had arrived, unspoken for, a few days prior. The only one this very large dealer received, and the first one here in Fresno CA.

After owning more than 20 bikes over 40 years of riding; on road, off road, and a bit of road racing, this is my favorite bike of all time.

My dealership (Roseville, Ca) originally said April/May to get the new 790 Dukes in. A buddy of mine just called me today and they had 2 down there, and just sold both of them. I've been emailing them for about a month and never a reply. They are out of stock again...
