    DriveSpark Thinks!

    The all-new KTM 790 Duke looks to race off from where its manic predecessor the 690 Duke left off. With its all-new 799cc parallel-twin engine providing over a 100bhp to a bike weighing just 169 kilos (dry), KTM's all-new scalpel looks more than ready to surgically cut off its Japanese rivals.
