Brand new 790 Duke owner here! Her name is "Elaine"

My name is Ken. I picked up a brand new 2020 790 Duke on Jan 3rd. Been contemplating this move for months. A good friend happens to work the local KTM dealer here and gave me an excellent trade for my 13 Street Triple. My bike progression has been: 1. Suzuki GS500, 2. Honda F4i, 3. Triumph Street Triple 675, and now the 790.

I'm old and slow (44, married with two kids). Love the twisties, but keeping some chicken strips :)

Bone stock at the moment, but have a few things on order. Evotech radiator guard and swingarm bobbins, KTM engine/clutch cover/sliders, bar-end mirrors, flyscreen, pillion peg delete, and Akrapovic can.

Went on our maiden ride this morning (100 miles) and I've been loving at how easy it is to get comfortable with the handling of this bike.

I'm in the Oakland, California area for any of you Nor Cal folks.

You named 'er, (grin).

Very cool, a nice sized group here from California. You fellas can prolly start your own meet-up-ride group sooner.

I've only seen one 790D here where I live in NY.
