We were stoked to get to see – and briefly hear – the KTM 790 Duke prototype at EICMA, but that was only a few seconds and a cordoned off display. Now, thanks to the glory of KTM’s YouTube page, we get two minutes, twenty-four seconds of rubber-smoking aggression. Since we sacrifice it all for you, our readers, we’ve watched the video a few times…OK, like 100 times in a cold sweat. As a consequence, we have come to the following conclusion: If you are at all enamored with the Duke platform, DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO!

    Nice, but I'm happy enough with my single 690:)
    Have a look...

    I was thinking about selling my Superduke 990 and getting the 1290R, but after watching this, I like the idea of actually using all of a bike's power instead of just a fraction of it as I would likely do on its big brother.
