The wait to see KTM's 790 Duke in its final, road-going form is over after it was unveiled this week at EICMA.
The 790 has KTM's all-new LC8C twin-cylinder motor at its heart, making a healthy 103 horsepower at 9,000rpm.
It'll be a cheaper way into KTM ownership, although prices are yet to be released. Its not short of toys either, with KTM's cornering ABS, lean-sensitive traction control, launch control, quickshifter and colour TFT dash - all of which come as standard.
Suspension isn't the highest spec ever, with non-adjustable forks, although WP stuff is generally of high quality.
Potential customers will have to wait a bit longer, as it won't be hitting the shops for another year or so.
