Rumor has it that a more powerful variant of the 790 Duke is currently being tested in Europe. The 790 Duke R will feature a custom ECU, Brembo brakes, and a custom free flow exhaust by Akrapovic. Although it hasn't been confirmed, the custom engine mappings and new electronic settings, could result in a slight bump in power. There hasn't been any confirmation on availability or pricing as of yet, but more details will be released in the coming weeks.

My biggest beef so far is the lack of video coverage.

There was the below promo video but its nothing more than a teaser, what we could use is feedback of what its like from a riders perspective.

Didn't anticipate seeing a sports variant this early on. Guess its a good thing that I haven't pulled the trigger yet on the Duke. Are we thinking an extra $2k or so for this version?

KTM is being pretty tight lipped about pricing around the Duke R, and until we have a confirmation of the updated specs, it'll be difficult to speculate. Akra systems tend to be pretty expensive on their own.

This was the prototype of the original 790 they showed at EICMA last year.

I’d also wager 2020 release, 2019 announcement
