The same will go under heavy testing before KTM unveils the actual middleweight tourer to the world.

It came with a familiar 1301 cc, 140 Nm engine that shares its presence with 1290 Super Duke R. A premium tourer by nature, this S variant is equipped with alloy wheels and highway friendly parts in place of R variant’s spoke wheels and off-road ability enhancing components. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1000"] KTM Duke 790[/caption] KTM India is presently selling around 4500 units every month, half of which comes from RC 200 and 200 Duke. KTM 250 Duke is the least popular version as buyers prefer moving into 390 segment directly from the 200cc machines. They are planning to produce the 790 Duke and Adventure series in India, bringing another ray of hope where the country could get these two bikes earlier than ever.
