Oh no, you don't understand Bac, it's a thing of beauty in black!

Okay, seriously, you can't help but appreciate the engineering marvel that went into the motor development irrespective of what you think the bike looks like.

Re: KTM Duke 990

I saw a Tuono, up close, this weekend.

Ya, I was just looking over the specs, pretty nice, 120 hp, 73 foot pounds of torque, 429 pounds ready to roll, about the same as a 929, White power suspension, Big Brembos, etc. Wonder what the $$$ is.

Re: KTM Duke 990

KTM is making some great bikes, that bike will rule, but it's a little too angular for my taste

Re: KTM Duke 990

That thing in black looks awesome! *Not a fan of orange. *It's amazing how changing the color can change the mind!

KTM makes some kick ass machines. *Early rides of the big Duke preproduction models said that it's going to set the motorcycle community on it's ear. *Impressions were it handled like a 250 GP bike with a V-twin motor. *Now that thought makes me drool.

BTW no, I do not or have not owned a KTM. *I can give recognition to a company that is making ####-hot bikes though.

Knee down, is a corner taken!
