Hi All, Thinking of buying a 790 duke, had a 1200 gs until some scroats robbed it from my garage.
So now on the look out for a new steed, I don't go a great distance anymore so I think the duke will be a good choice for urban riding and weekend blasts,
I live in near m/cr and no ktm dealer near me looks like I will have to travel to stoke for the nearest dealer
unless anybody knows any nearer or got one near me that I can have a look at,
Anyway will keep you updated on my progress.
Thanks.

Sorry to hear about the beemer, these thieves need to be castrated and left to rot.

They’ll no doubt be watching out for a replacement to take as well so you might want to up your security as a Duke is more of a scrote magnetic than a gs.

What security did you have on the old bike if you don’t mind me asking?

Had good amount of security I thought for the GS, have re done my security, dropping down in cc also value had a lot of different bikes before the GS as soon has I get a expensive bmw it gets taken.
Not had a test yet or a insurance quote so all up in air for now.
Cheers
Mark

firstly sorry to hear of the theft.
the 790 works very well for almost all riding on longer journeys most people would fit the PP seat for greater comfort
test ride one
next you will be thinking about what colour and when :grin:

Hi, Looking at a lot of duke on various outlets with them being mainly 2018 reg condition should be fine, options I take you mean add ons?
Not seen many with akro or grips or tidys n bungs, got till spring and it will be a cash deal long has I don't spend it.

Other alternatives are street triple rs or new cb650r.
