Quito. January 13th, 2020.
Ecuador Bike Rental is happy to announce the new gain to its inventory. A brand new KTM 790 Adventure has been added to their fleet thanks to the agreement between KTM del Ecuador and The rental firm.
”We believe that between the midsize two-cylinder adventure range, this motorcycle has been put its name and have been tested globally to prove it's worth.” Said David Garces, the spokesman of the company. ”We had such an incredible experience with its bigger sister, the KTM 1290 Superadventure, and customers so happy with it that already has about 17000 km on its clock in less than three months of purchase and no issues whatsoever. It was an easy decision to go for this model.
The 799cc LC8 parallel-twin engine that provides 95 HP is being controlled by four ride-by-wire computer modes: Street, off-road, rain, and rally, with the last one being able to be adjusted its traction control in 9 levels in order to match the terrain ride with slippage precision. Also, another advantage of the small powerplant, is the freedom the engineers had To design an agile and responsive chassis around it. The ABS is also being upgraded to a cornering ABS that make sure no limits in traction are passed over.
The fuel tank is another masterpiece in this enduro-travel machine. It houses most of the fuel volume at the lowest point possible to have the center of mass as low as possible on the bike, besides the 450 km of autonomy with its 20 litters of capacity. The autonomy is also supported with lightweight heavy duty spoked wheels with their sizes biased to dirt: 21" in the front and 18" in the back.
Ergonomics wise, the motorcycle has a seat height of 85 cm (33.5") which helps the rider to have a proper control when stopping, a steering bar that doesn't affect the rider's spine, and without compromising the ground clearance.
"This model came as an answer to many clients that wants a powerful engine in their rentals and tours, but with less size than the African Twin or the KTM 1290 Super Adventure", said Francisco Silva, asset manager of the firm. "The ride is easy, our customers claim to feel much safer, and with it, we are happy to provide an even better service with more variety for all likes"
