KTM Unveiled to the adventure lovers along with production-ready 790 Duke at the 2017 EICMA, KTM surprises us showing an enduro motorcycle. The Austrian bikemaker also showcased the enduro motorcycle 790 Adventure conceptual design during this unveil and we couldn’t wait to watch the bike in its production-ready state. The 799cc mill designed and made by KTM is their first parallel-twin engine on any bike coming out of their Austrian approbation.
But now, it’s all in there. The Dakar-inspired bodywork, beefier swingarm, bolder spoked wheels, skid plate, hand guards, high-crest exhaust and heavyset tires developed for adventure lover customers who are looking to get s something with seriously tough looks and off-road ability.
The first 790 Duke prototype was spot tested in 2016 and the ready to- production variant was unveiled this year.
Upcoming adventures KTM will be powered by a brand new 800cc parallel-twin engine. From new images, we can expect that the bike will utilize long-travel WP forks at the front and a mono-shock at the rear. The stopping power comes from the twin-disc setup at the front with 2-pot radial Brembo callipers and a single disc setup at the rear. The KTM 790 Adventure will ride on spoke wheels- 18inches at the rear and 21-inch at the front.
The brand new designed style showing on many of KTM’s street bike models, look for the new adventures KTM 790 to be announced in late 2017, released as a 2018 model.
KTM bike Prototypes have been spotted using both hard-core off-road tyres and more asphalt-suitable kit, as well as in versions with and without the screen seen on this bike. In emblematic KTM style, there are chances that the firm will offer least two different trim levels for the 790 Adventure – there will at least be an ‘R’ version to sit alongside the base model – and several options to skew the bikes towards more of a road or off-road focus depending on the buyer’s need.
The chassis of the bike is also new, with what appears to be a handmade swing arm and a near-horizontal rear shock placement, hidden by the rider’s right leg in this image. The nose offers appears to be from the current 450 Rally design. Other bodywork of the bike is very temporary stuff made of flat sheets of plastic zip-tied to the frame.
We wish the adventures KTM 790 R makes a deep mark to India at some point. And if this adventure bike does come here, then it will have to rival against the Triumph Tiger 800 and the BMW F 750 GS
