Now we have news of the brochure being leaked. There is no doubt in the fact that the brochure was leaked by one of the dealerships. KTM had started upgrading dealerships to prepare for the arrival of the 390 Adventure, 790 Duke and the Husqvarna twins. Adding to this was the arrival of the 790 Duke at dealerships.

There is no doubt that the 790 Duke's marketing brochure too would have been shipped to dealerships along with the motorcycle. It seems like someone just took a picture of one of these brochures and put it up online.

According to the brochure, the KTM 790 Duke will have top-notch electronics. The motorcycle features MTC ( Motorcycle Traction Control) to help put the power down to the road, allowing for best acceleration times irrespective of the terrain being ridden on.

The traction control is interlinked with the six-axis inertia sensor and is lean-angle sensitive. It features three riding modes and can be completely turned off as well. The KTM 790 Duke also comes with Track Mode that helps the rider get raw and unadulterated power.

It also features the Quickshifter+ system for clutchless upshifts and downshifts. MSR (Motor Slip Regulation) comes as standard equipment on the KTM 790 Duke. This feature does not allow the rear wheel to lock up when the rider lets go off the throttle abruptly and even when downshifting aggressively.

Supermoto Mode is yet another feature in the KTM 790 Duke that allows the rider to have fun by turning off the ABS on the rear-wheel. This mode should make for brilliant slides and drifts.

Thoughts On KTM 790 Duke Engine, Brakes, Suspension & Riding Aids Details Leaked

The KTM 790 Duke has been a hot topic of discussion among motorcycling communities and groups. Until now, it was unclear if the Indian market would get the motorcycle as it is sold in Europe and there were rumours that the engine may be detuned for the Indian market.

However, this brochure has put those rumours to rest. The motorcycle for India is in-fact more powerful than the model on sale in Europe. Yes, it is only a 2bhp increase, but it still is higher, and that makes us happy.
