Comment of the day – Mohanty Kumar – “As good, desirable and special the Duke 790 is, I am not able to shake off the feeling that it was very much possible for KTM to price it much lower. It might happen in the future with increasing localisation/manufacturing but right now this bike is not going to create any revolution of sorts in the Indian market like the Duke 390 did in 2013.”
