We're Looking For A 790 DUKE

In 2017, KTM produced the Duke 790 middleweight naked. The Duke was the successor to the 690 cc Duke. The 790 has a 799cc engine that put out 105 horsepower, making the most of its 6-speed gearbox. KTM 790's engine vibration has been dramatically reduced using balancer shafts placed in front of the crank and within the cylinder head.

KTM added inverted 43mm front forks combined with a steering damper and adjustable preloaded rear mono-shock. The engine itself is a parallel eight-valve DOHC twin liquid-cooled power plant with plenty of punch. The KTM Dukes electronics have stood out as world-class and innovative. The KTM Duke was one of the first bikes that boast a bi-directional quickshifter as standard.

Ride By Wire

The bike uses a ride by wire throttle that processes the twist grip movement via sensors that operate servo motors in the throttle valves. The bike now has rider modes, adjustable traction control and ABS on all models. A stainless exhaust fitted as standard and blends in well with its sleek bodywork.

The bike has a rigid tubular frame that gives it increasable handling. The Duke is built on a subframe that houses all the covers, also other bits about the motorbike, and a die-cast swingarm that gives stiffness and stability to the ride. The Electronics include a multi-colour TFT screen and LED headlights as standard.

Why Sell Your KTM 790 Duke To Us?

Selling your bike to us is safe & secure. Selling your motorcycle to a private buyer can be risky. Many people have had their bikes stolen after allowing the buyer to test drive their motorbike and have them ride off and not return. The seller then has the problem of claiming on the dreaded insurance, as many insurers will not payout when the motorbikes are "stolen with keys".

We provide payment on collection. No cash. Payments are through bank transfer at the time of sale at your home.

We also provide a no fuss promise. As long as the bike is in the condition that has been stated on the valuation, we will perform a quick check, then we will pay the money directly into your bank account, no fuss, no further haggling. We buy any bike that is as agreed in the valuation.
