Developed from KTM’s offroad race DNA, the 790 ADVENTURE R is a serious offroad motorcycle equipped for extreme terrain. With the hardcore adventurer in mind, it balances the power of a twin, with the lightness and agility of a single-cylinder offroad bike, to open up new riding possibilities. It offers an impressive fuel range without compromising agility, feeding a powerful yet compact, smooth and reliable engine. Access more extreme and distant offroad terrain thanks to easy-to-use rider aids and practical ergonomics.
The LC8c is the most compact performance engine on the market, and the 790 ADVENTURE R’s version was specifically adapted to the needs of serious offroad adventure riding: minimal vibration thanks to two balancer shafts, a 6-speed sequential gearbox, and advanced engineering for weight optimisation. The exhaust is made from stainless steel, as is the muffler, which has been designed to be as small and light as possible to aid mass centralisation. This compact muffler is positioned as high as possible for better ground clearance.
When you find yourself in a tricky situation, ABS, MTC and ride modes are there to assist in a variety of conditions. MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) is KTM’s lean angle sensitive traction control system that reacts immediately if the rotational speed of the rear wheel is disproportionate to the riding situation. Rally mode allows a more direct control over the various functions, allowing the rider to determine the character of the bike more freely. The rider can more precisely fine-tune the slip adjust to match the condition of the surface, the skill level of the rider and the requirements of the ride. The Ride-By-Wire system electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into optimum throttle valve positions for the current riding situation.
