The duke has arrived! It was ready one day earlier than expected which is always nice. I debated black vs orange, but my son said a ktm had to be orange (he loved the orange frame on my 690) 😉
This bike has fantastic power delivery! I've had 1,000cc sport bikes and naked bikes so I thought long and hard about a slightly used '17 1290 superduke instead. After going to the 690 enduro I had forgotten the power delivery of a street focused bike, this 790 is going to be perfect.
Others have said it, as have professional reviewers...the stock exhaust is surprisingly sweet sounding. Too bad it's so darn ugly....but it underscores that all you likely need is a slip-on.
