KTM 790 Duke Highlights

KTM 790 Duke Price: KTM 790 Duke prices start at Rs. 8.64 lakh (Ex-Showroom). KTM 790 Duke is available in 1 variants and 2 colours.
790 Duke Engine and Specifications: Powering the motorcycle is an LC8c 799cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin motor, which churns out 105PS of power and 86Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed gearbox and a slipper clutch. It is built around a tubular steel frame, which uses the engine as a stressed member. The suspension duties are handled by adjustable WP USD forks at the front and WP monoshock unit at the rear. Braking is taken care of by 300mm disc at the front and a 240mm rear disc.

790 Duke Design and Features

In terms of design, the 790 Duke follows similar cues seen on the Duke series like the 390 Duke and the range-topper 1290 Duke. It sports the same inverted pitchfork shaped LED headlamps, aggressive bodywork and an sharp overall design. However, unlike the 390 Duke, it gets a stainless steel, high-mounted, upswept exhaust and a slightly longer wheelbase. Features include ride-by-wire throttle control, different riding modes, multi-level traction control with lean angle sensitivity, ABS, launch control and a quick shifter. There's also a similar looking coloured TFT instrument console like the 390 Duke. However, the speedo and the tacho readouts are bigger.

KTM 790 Duke Competitors

Triumph Street Triple S: Perhaps KTM’s closest competitor, the Triumph Street Triple S offers high-performance numbers across the board. However, its high asking price of Rs 9.19 lakh will be too much of a stretch for some customers, especially considering that the KTM can be had for Rs 55,000 less.

Suzuki GSX-S750: Again, the Suzuki offers more power across the board here. However, if you look at the horsepower per rupee fight, the GSX-S750 has a bit of a disadvantage when compared to the Kawasaki Z900.

Kawasaki Z900 : The Kawasaki Z900 is currently the most value-for-money prospect here. However, the electronics here, or rather lack thereof, hinders its prospect of being the segment leader.

Ducati Monster 797 : While the Ducati may look like a tempting buy, the specs and the pricing tell a different story. It churns out less power, packs comparatively less number of electronics and costs more than its competition.

ZigSays

The mid-weight naked segment is highly contested with the likes of Suzuki, Ducati, Kawasaki and Triumph. However, KTM is one bikemaker we trust to break into this segment and establish a strong foothold in the country. However, we are disappointed by the comparatively high price the motorcycle commands owing to KTM getting it in CKD form all the way from its home country Austria. Hopefully, the upcoming BS6 compliant 790 Duke will feature more localisation and get the prices down by around a lakh.

Is the 790 Duke’s high asking price and somewhat paltry spec sheet straying away from KTM’s bang-for-buck mantra in India?
