You’d be hard pressed to find fault in the Duke’s powerplant, aside from an abrupt on/off throttle mapping, which is exaggerated at low speeds. The 790 comes preset with three ride modes—Rain, Street, and Sport—which alter the engine’s overall power delivery and traction control intervention with preset settings. A fourth mode, Track, allows the rider to tailor the throttle response and TC settings to their liking, as well as the option to turn off anti-wheelie mode (uh, yes please) and enable a launch control feature. Toggling through throttle response mappings via the left handlebar switch gear and settling on the mild Street setting alleviates touchy throttle transitions in city-street conditions. The Sport setting remains in reserve for aggressive back-road riding, and Track is too abrupt for anything except, well, the racetrack.
