The KTM brand has always given us something to talk about, however, nothing has sounded more than the new KTM 890 Adventure in all its versions (S, R, Rally), knowing that its predecessor was the 790 and in relation to worldwide comments it was quite good. Now the brand decided to take one more step. It should be emphasized that fanaticism for this motorcycle lies in its versatility, that is, the balance it offers both on the road and off it.
“With the development of the new KTM 890 ADVENTURE, we reached all of our marks by offering an improved machine for both road and gravel. With the new engine, we worked hard to optimize overall performance and driving feel. The result is a great improvement in the handling of the bike, better stability, fewer gear changes, and more comfort for long days in the saddle. With the KTM 890 ADVENTURE we wanted a KTM that sets the benchmark through its performance on the tarmac while being able to tack off the road and maintain the same high standards. "- Joachim Sauer, Travel Product Manager by KTM
