Will be picking up a new bike soon, it's between the Duke 790 and a leftover MT09. The Duke seems to be better equipped, but the Yamaha is about $4500 cheaper. Is the Duke worth the extra bucks? I generally keep it under 100, anyway, and $4500 can fix a lot deficiencies. What do you think?
This may not be a popular opinion, here, but I would take the FZ 09 at $ 4500 less.
I have both bikes, and a " few " others.
The leftover MT 09 sounds like it would be newer than the 2014, so the twitchy throttle may have been resolved by now.
There are ECU flashes available to smooth the throttle and de-restrict bike.
Suspension fix could be as simple as heavier forks springs , 10 wt fork oil,
and a good aftermarket shock. I went a bit further.
I don't know about the weight of the later MT 09, but my 2014 was 417 Lbs,
which is pretty close to the weight of the KTM 790 with a lot more power.
The FZ / MT 09 is definitely not lacking for bottom end torque.
