KTM 890 Adventure Revealed, Gets More Performance & Tech
Powered by a 889cc Euro 5-compliant engine that makes 105 HP, the motorcycle will be an able touring machine.
KTM has revealed the all new 890 Adventure that it claims is a supremely capable adventure tourer that has sporty characteristics.
Taking the 790 Adventure as the basis, KTM engineers set to work to produce a more capable machine that meets the latest emission regulations and still puts out more power.
Design of the bike strictly follows KTM’s adventure bike family traits with angular, almost alien-like minimalist design. There is nothing excessive on the bike and KTM claims the motorcycle has Dakar Rally-inspired ergonomics.
There is full-LED lighting, a 5-inch TFT digital screen, smartphone connectivity, tall windscreen, 20-litre fuel tank, height adjustable seat, anodised wheel hubs, 21-inch front spoke wheel and 18-inch one at the rear and adventure-spec tyres with TPMS.
The engine displaces 889cc and is Euro 5-compliant. It puts out 105 HP and 100 Nm. KTM says that the 20 percent extra rotating mass of the crankshaft brings an improved feeling at low revs. It also comes with a stronger clutch to cope with the boosted performance.
WP suspension is present on the bike and while the USD Apex front forks has been carried over, the rear shock is new and can be adjusted for both spring preload and rebound damping. Also, there is lots of suspension travel, about 200 mm of it.
Braking duty is done by twin 320 mm discs upfront with 4-piston calipers, 260 mm rear disc with 2-piston caliper.
Safety and riding aids include cornering ABS, off-road ABS, Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) and Motor Slip Regulation, off-road driving mode and the optional rally mode.
Other optional extras include KTM MY RIDE app for turn-by-turn navigation, cruise control, Quickshifter+, heated seat and grips together with a wide compliment of luggage.
By December this year, the KTM 890 Adventure will start arriving at authorised KTM dealers worldwide.
