Dealers are saying sometime this month, but have yet to be given a hard delivery date. At least thanks to all your praises of the 790 we know that is going to be well worth the wait.

so run in before Christmas and a very happy new year :-) for the southern riders and I am sure a bit longer for all but the hardest of northern riders

I wonder how many have been pre ordered does anyone know?

I've been told late this month as well, which is a bummer as there wont be much season left to enjoy. At least I haven't seen any salt trucks making their rounds as of yet.

well perhaps running in in winter makes some sense you will not be so tempted to rip the throttle open

Received my 790 Duke yesterday.

Unfortunately I have a broke leg and cannot ride it. It has 0 miles. I think it is the first motorcycle or car I have ever bought that had 0 miles. Bad thing is I can't even unload it off the trailer I brought it home on. And will not be able to ride it for at least another month.
Bought at Griffith Cycle in Chattanooga TN. It is black. You guys who are waiting should be getting your bike soon. I made a down payment on mine back in March/April time frame.
Cheers

Got a picture of your bike with the graphic kit. I am wanting to do the same. Would be nice to see it on the bike.
Thanks
