There aren't any anchor points as such, will have to fabricate a custom rack for hard panniers.
But soft saddle bags are easy to carry on, here a picture from one of the travelogues on an Indian biking forum..

EDIT: Even I'm on the look out extending the range of the Duke, I don't mind the increase weight as long as the bike does atleast some 300+ Kms without needing a re-fill. Something around 400 kms mark would be ideal though, which means something like a 18+ Ltr tank is needed!
