    Default KTM 790 Duke launched at INR 8,63,945/- (Ex-Showroom)

    KTM has launched the much-awaited middleweight streetfighter, the 790 Duke, in India. We have seen the internet flooded with the spy shots and speculations surrounding the 790 Duke and finally, it is here. KTM has launched the 790 Duke in India at a price tag of INR 8,63,945 (Ex-Showroom). Though the price may seem a bit steep, the technology and equipment onboard make up for it.

    The KTM Duke 790 aka The Scalpel has been of the most anticipated motorcycles in India. And the reason is that it is one of the most appreciated motorcycles (in its respective segment) the world over. 799cc LC8c Parallel-twin engine with a power output of around 105 Bhp and a torque output of 86 Nm. These seemingly humble figures are propelling a motorcycle that weighs around 169 Kg wet.

    Other bells and whistles include Twin balancer shafts to control the inherent vibrations of the engine design while DOHC manages the four valves per cylinder. Ride-by-wire and a 42mm DKK Dell’Orto throttle body control the fuel delivery. A PASC (Power Assisted Slipper Clutch) controls wheel hop under aggressive downshifts. To manage the heat generated by the engine, the oil cooler contains a heat exchanger with a liquid cooling system.

    The chassis is a lightweight tubular Chromium Molybdenum steel frame that utilizes a cast aluminium subframe. The front suspension consists of a WP 43 mm open-cartridge front fork while the rear is handled by a gas-assisted WP rear shock with progressive spring and preload adjustment. The swingarm is a die-cast, open-lattice swingarm unit, which has been optimized for stiffness and tuned flex. A steering damper keeps everything tame, given the sporting nature of the Duke. Finally, a wide, tapered, adjustable aluminium handlebar allows the rider full control of the cast-aluminium wheels and their 120/70 ZR 17 front and 180/55 ZR 17 rubber.

    The styling is predictably very KTM i.e. very radical and very aggressive. Two colours, KTM orange, and Black are on offer. Looks are subjective but according to us, it looks just amazing in both the colour schemes.

    Can you ask them about KTM adventure 390, is that plan still on.

    Also, can you ask them if they have any plans to launch 690 enduro or 790 adventure.

    The only bike I need for now is Adventure 390. I thought that 790 would be launched after adventure 390. But, but but...

    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.
