We’re awaiting delivery of the 790. None here yet. We seem to be among the last to receive new KTM products.
Of course just in time for winter.
I currently own a 1290 Super Duke and have sold my 690 and 390 Dukes to free up garage space for the new 790.

Anyone know if they’re coming out with an R version?
hi you will not regret selling your 690 to buy a 790 i did this too, but i must say i kept the 390 i should sell it but i have had so much fun on this little beast
I was looking forward to a 790R but last week my dealer said KTM had dropped the idea so maybe its just a case of make your own

So how to make an R
I would say Front brakes
Rear Shock
More Power

Front Brakes I have fitted a Brembo master cylinder which has made a significant improvement in feel and bite.
Forks I am considering the the Andreani Misano fork cartridge kit for KTM DUKE 790 picture below
Rear Shock still thinking
More power well if you look at the coober ecu plus decat you can gain 10-15% BHP/Torque

So i think this would be close to an R version this lot would be circa 2500-3000 probably the price difference between a 790 and 790R
