After almost 10 months of having a 790 Duke in and out of my garage, I bought it! Up until now, the bike has been part of KTM North America’s press fleet. They loaned it to me after the new model introduction, and my coworkers and I’ve been riding it and recently modifying it and writing articles about it. With all the test bikes that rotate in and out of my garage, I rarely feel the need to buy a bike. In fact, the last time it happened was 16 years ago with the 2003 Yamaha R6 that I sold to help fund the purchase of the 790. The 790 Duke is a really special motorcycle, and I’m super stoked to finally own one.
