Duke 790 side view

Current bike: KTM Duke 790

This lovely piece of metal is my current ride – 2019 KTM Duke 790.

I have a number of mods on it to personalise it and to have it set up so that it works for me perfectly. The engine etc. is completely stock (although I am considering adding a booster plug to improve the low speed fuelling. I have added a Remus end can to replace the OEM pipe, because I prefer the look of it to the standard can and because of the great sound it makes, even with the baffle in (although I have it out most of the time!)

I absolutely love this bike, it is such a great all rounder – fantastic fun for spirited riding, very polite around town and, from my point of view, completely comfortable for long rides – I have done full day rides on this bike, both in this country and to the continent.

How KTM have managed to make such an uncomfortable looking seat be so bum friendly is a complete mystery to me!
