Cruise Control

Now that the 790 adventure is getting cruise control as an PP extra, i am expecting the Duke to get the same.

for dual carriageway and motorways with all the speed cameras, its almost a must these days

My friend from local Ktm dealership will try to find out as early as possible, also if it will be possible to add navigation thru app(same as adventure). Will keep you updated.

So I received an official statement from ktm today stating that we would only need an combination switch (76011270100) and software update with activation key for cruise to work. But unfortunately they only have it available for 790 adventure at this moment.

so one has to ask why would this not be a standard option for the Duke 790, I would love to hear from KTM a plausible explanation, I can only conclude they are not in touch with the customer base, you know the people that actually spend their own money.

Especially when people are willing to spend more cash on PP parts-> would think they would like to squeeze more money out of us.
