Agreed, RC. I find the 790 very hot as well. Once you learn to wrap your mind around Kiska's wild and radical styling, it can become very attractive.
Over a year ago the German moto-mag Motorrad had a long spread about the "KTM Duke 800", with photos of the early test mules. They reckoned the bike would be built in Austria and would sell for something in the range of 11-12k $US. But now there seems to be talk of moving its production to India. If so, that would mean a substantially lower price. The final production model will undoubtedly look somewhat different from the prototype: Among other things they need to fit a tail light, license plate bracket and light, and indicators front and rear. Likely there will be a rear fender of some sort - that tail is a little too tidy as it is now....
