So the new 790 Duke doesn't come with a windshield and you’re stuck up in the wind while riding on long stretches of empty road or highway. That will easily tire you out and rider ergonomics are relatively upright, so your torso gets the full brunt of it.
Are there any options out there yet? Or which aftermarket companies should we keep an eye on?

Haven't seen anything from Puig as yet but they're known for serving the KTM community. As soon as they come out with one I'll look into it. Always like their windscreen for the Duke 690

Wouldn't want to blindly purchase a screen without pictures. I guess it'll be Puig for us once they release something for the 790 Duke. Shouldn't be too long if there's enough interest since it seems to be an essential piece of equipment to me.

Screen

Puig shows various screens for the 790Duke, with the New Generation Sport listed as "Under Development" which is reasonably encouraging.

Gear4Motorcycles lists two - a small fly screen and a touring screen (which also looks quite small, but probably helps remove some of the wind-tunnel effect above 70 / 80

Anyone seen any sign that Givi will fabricate their pannier rails for this one yet?

Cheers

Pretty sure it is now one of the power part options. Have both a fly screen and slightly larger windshield. Also carrier plate and 48L top box.

There's a windscreen and fly screen advertised as coming soon on this site. They both are priced around £75. No idea on the manufacturer or quality of the products though. They've also got a bunch of different accessories for the Duke that are already available.

Ah, looks like I will have to tint mine if i get from them. Never liked having clear visors even from an aesthetics point of view. These bikes just look a bit a weird to me without.

These are the two KTM PowerParts options:

https://www.ktm.com/powerparts/windshield/fly-screen/?year=2018&segment=Naked+Bike&model=F9603R5

Not sure on their availability though.

Puig has brought out one but looks awful in my opinion, I find that the wind blast is just as good without anything as my old MT07 with a medium sized screen on it.

OEM Screen Options.

Hi All,have been looking at screen options as well.
If you look on the Official KTM website for the 790 and go onto the"Ergonomics and Comfort" section
and go to the 2 screen options you can download the fitting instructions, these give you a few pictures that give you a bit of an idea what the screens look like on the bike.
Hope this helps.
Ride Safe.:smile:

Barracuda

Glad that the KTM Powerparts windshield wasn’t available (my first choice because cheaper), and I had to order the Barracuda (the best looking windshield on the market at this time imho). https://www.barracudamoto-usa.com/barracuda-kit-ktm-duke-790-2018
The first two images display the Barracuda windshield on a 790 Duke, the two images below show the - not so good looking - original KTM windshield.

I have the Puig clear screen -nathanwt96 says its horrible, beauty is in the eye of the beholder - for me it's ok aesthetically & does a good job of keeping the blast off the body. Nothing is going to turn the 790 into a RT (thankfully). There's a pic below.

HOWEVER I can totally see where 'Jeffolk' is coming from & the Barracuda screen looks pretty good. Does anybody know how it works??

In my humble opinion, if you go to the trouble & expense of fitting a screen it's for a reason & for me that reason is to help those stretches where you are forced to ride at a reasonable pace & constant speed - i.e. motorways/freeways that are sometimes very convenient to avoid built up areas & that take us to the twisty bits.

I think we can all agree with "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" The picture shows the larger of the two KTM screens
I am still going to wait for the KTM perhaps i will regret that decision

I like the look of the Barracuda screen but only wished it was available in clear or a light tint not the darkly tinted which appears to be the only option.
I have ordered a powerpart screen and see how it looks when I get my bike next week, but I will need a screen.
The Barracuda mirrors are my next consideration, the Italians do design so nice looking stuff.
