    Default KTM Duke 790 2019 Ownership Experience Thread

    Hello guys,

    A long pending addition to the garage finally fulfilled, and I could not find anything better than one of the most electronically advanced middleweight bike in the world, at present. Here's presenting you the 2019 Scalpel, 790 Duke. Also proud to be the first owner of the 790 Duke in Karnataka. I'll be coming up with more details in the coming posts, as it has just been two days since delivery and I haven't got time to explore the bike yet.

    hi, Kish. Congratulations on your acquisition. The reason we've merged here is, it helps in the ownership review and readability of your scalpel, and hence helps get more audience to see this thread more easily. Don't worry, you can continue posting your photos, awesome reviews and experiences here.

    Rock on! Please ride safe!

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Congratulations !!
    I was just wondering in the pics there's no hand guard on the bike did you removed it or the bike doesn't come with one ?

    Thank you!

    The bike doesn't come with hand guard as standard. I suppose the lever protectors will be available as KTM Powerparts in a few weeks time.

    Wow!! This is one bike, I have been drilling over since it’s international launch. I saw a 790 at Mekhri circle ktm, up for delivery some days back when I went for bike servicing there. The guys over there told it’s the second bike to be delivered from Mekhri circle ktm. You can immediately feel the difference in quality. The switch gear and especially the levers looks premium with a textured feel to them.
    Saw one near mg road, zooming past, the exhaust sound was so good.
    Waiting eagerly for the full blown review and lots of pics.
    Congrats and enjoy the bike.
