KTM reveals new 890 Adventure

KTM has revealed a new 890 Adventure following the launch of the Duke and more extreme rally-inspired R models.

Based on the existing 790 Adventure, the larger-engined model is due to arrive in showrooms in January.

This 2021 model year adventure tourer’s new 889cc engine raises performance figures to 105hp and 100 Nm of torque, while 20% extra rotating mass of the crankshaft brings an improved feeling at low revs while increasing the centralised sensation and traction through corners.

It gets a stronger clutch to cope with the boosted performance, while a new rear shock offers greater rider customisation through a new rebound damping adjuster and an additional hand adjuster for spring preload.

The new model has Adventure-spec tyres, a full-size TFT dashboard, cornering ABS, traction control and motor slip regulation and a dual height seat. A cruise control switch is standard but activating it is an optional extra.
