First Look: KTM 790 Adventure R

June 28, 2018

KTM 790 Adventure RKTM presented a close-to-production version of the new middle class adventure bike 790 Adventure R at the European Adventure Rally in Sardinia.
The KTM 790 Adventure R is powered by the 800 cubic centimeter inline twin cylinder (LC8c). For use in the Adventure, the twin was trimmed to additional torque. At the front and rear, long-stroke and fully adjustable spring elements from WP Suspension work. Nevertheless, the seat height is moderate. The rideability benefits from the low overall center of gravity to which the low-mounted tank contributes. KTM attaches great importance to ergonomics, which can be adapted to the rider and riding situation.
An extensive package of rider assistance systems supports the pilot on different terrain.
The spoke wheels have real off-road dimensions; high-quality brakes (including off-road ABS) are fitted.
Anyone who wants to get an idea of the KTM 790 Adventure R will have the opportunity to do so at the EICMA fair in Milan starting at November 6th.
