KTM 790 Duke Highlights
KTM launched the 790 Duke in 2019 at Rs 8.64 lakh (ex-showroom India). Only limited stocks of the bike were brought to India, which have now been completely sold out. The BS6-compliant version of the bike is being developed by KTM India but it is likely to arrive after the April 1 deadline kicks in. Primary competitors of the flagship KTM motorcycle include the Kawasaki Z900 and the Suzuki GSX-S750.
From a design standpoint, the 790 Duke sports the same aggressive styling that's seen on the Duke series. Compared to its cousins, it gets a side-mounted upswept exhaust and a slightly stretched out wheelbase. In terms of features, the 790 Duke gets a full-digital TFT instrument console, LED headlights, taillight and turn signals. It also gets a number of electronic rider aids like stability control with cornering ABS, supermoto mode and ‘Motor Slip Regulation’ (MTC), which is essentially an engine brake control that works to balance off high revs while aggressively downshifting. Additionally, the 790 Duke features a traction control system with lean angle sensitivity and ride-by-wire over and above four rider modes: Sport, Street, Rain and Track -- which opens up a plethora of other rider aids like anti-wheelie control, launch control, traction control with a spin adjuster and throttle response.
Powering the mid-displacement streetfighter is a new LC8 799cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin motor that pumps out 105PS of power at 9500rpm and 86Nm of torque at 8000rpm. It comes with a 6-speed transmission and a bi-directional quick-shifter for clutchless up and downshifts.
The 790 Duke employs a Chromoly trellis frame and single-piece aluminium rear subframe which helps keep the weight down to 169kg (dry). The bike’s suspension setup comprises of a 43mm upside-down fork and a monoshock which gets 12-stages of preload adjustability, both from WP. Anchoring the 790 Duke are twin 300mm front and a single 240mm rear disc brake. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard.

The Kawasaki Z900 is a beast with the dominance it shows over the KTM Duke 790. The Kawasaki Z900 has been offered with a punchier engine, frugal performance and very comfortable riding posture which makes it a great choice in terms of the performance. Moreover, we would suggest you to visit the nearest authorised dealership so that you may take a test ride of both the bikes to get the better perspective regarding the performance, comfort and features of the bikes.
