Default KTM teases Duke 790 prototype at the EICMA 2016

As per the NDTV.com news article, the Duke 790 has been teased by KTM.

KTM teases Duke 790 prototype at the EICMA 2016-ktm790dukeprototype_827x510_41478616217.jpg

Here is an excerpt from the article:

"The Austrian firm is calling the new engine the LC8c (c for compact), and according to buzz from the EICMA 2016, the same 800cc parallel-twin will also find its way to an adventure bike, in all likelihood under KTM's sister brand Husqvarna. KTM says the 790 Duke will bring "unparalleled poise, telepathic levels of feedback and lightness that's off the scale"."

I am all ears and hoping that this model has a price-to-value appeal of the Duke 390, for us in India.

This is one bike which many of us are awaiting for the launch in India.

It seems like a younger sibling of the Ducati Hypermotard 821 which has an output of 110 bhp at 175 Kg weight.

Power to weight ratio and price has been the game for KTM till now looking at the Duke 390 and RC 390 in India.

If the overall package of Duke 790 arrives even close as similar to that of Duke 390 including the price; it is going to be tough times for Kawasaki, Triumph and other leading brands in this mid-segment that is 600s and 800s.

I personally am eagerly waiting for this as I perceive it to be the best Value For Money deal.
