The Duke is one of the best bikes I've ever ridden it. I sold my CBR1k to buy the Duke. Yes, it has all the power (165 HP and 100 torque at the rear wheel), but it's more than that. It's just damn fun to ride. It makes me feel like a kid again. Ripping wheelies through 4th gear. I hope my license survives. It's good on the track, too. My first track day I was pulling lap times within just a few seconds of my usual time on the CBR. And I can ride it all day. My first trip on it to Northern Arkansas I was doing 280 mile days without a problem. Those same miles on my CBR would have my body crying to get off the bike.
Be careful if you test ride one.....once I did that it came home with me. I can't think of anything it doesn't do well. Just a great ride.
