Overview

2019 KTM 790 ADVENTURE

UNLIMITED ADVENTURE

This sporty travel bike, with KTM’s offroad genes, is built for endless travel enduro exploration and holds huge potential for offroad riding.  Whether it’s in the desert, on remote mountain trails or a transcontinental crossing, no other twin-cylinder travel enduro bike can match it.

ENGINE & EXHAUST

The new generation LC8c in-line twin-engine with 95 hp (70 kW)  – combined with modern electronics and a 6-speed sequential gearbox – ticks all the boxes for a travel enduro motorcycle that can be ridden up to 450 km between fuel stops on the open road. Smooth long-distance travel is assured thanks to two balancer shafts, which keep vibration to a minimum, and, with long service intervals of 15, 000 km, you can ride for days on end without a worry.

CHASSIS

The KTM 790 ADVENTURE is a versatile motorcycle that’s ready to explore further in any conditions. It’s well balanced and purposeful, with sporty handling on the tarmac, and inspires confidence inspiring offroad. The advanced tubular CroMo steel frame and lightweight steel trellis subframe are engineered to be compact, but durable, to handle a full load on longer rides. A steering damper aids stability, while the heavy-duty spoked 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels are specifically developed for offroad riding performance.

ERGONOMICS & COMFORT

The KTM 790 ADVENTURE’s ergonomics allow it to perform as brilliantly offroad as is does on. A low-slung fuel tank lowers the centre of gravity, improves handling, and allows the rider to move around more freely. At high speeds on the open road, the 790 ADVENTURE benefits from a higher screen, which offers maximum wind protection, while the twin-seat design ensures both rider and passenger are comfortable on longer trips.

SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS

Ride modes allow the rider to adapt the behavior and feel of the engine, while KTM’s lean angle sensitive traction control system (MTC – Motorcycle Traction Control), reduces wheel spin based on the chosen mode or riding situation. KTM’s cornering ABS system allows riders to use the full power of their brakes while taking the lean angle of the motorcycle into account. It has an advanced offroad mode that can also be turned off.

Cooling

Cool Running

In the heat of the moment, it’s important the LC8c engine keeps its cool to ensure its advanced power and performance are maintained. Thanks to the KTM 790 ADVENTURE’s design and advanced cooling technology, exploring for hours on end in hot conditions is possible.

Exhaust

Stainless Steel Exhaust

A redesigned stainless-steel exhaust system utilizes a mid-exhaust sound damper to centralize mass, which allows for a relatively small muffler, thereby maximizing the exhaust system’s ground clearance. The sound – ready for adventure!

Exceptional On and Offroad Performance

The overall geometry of the KTM 790 ADVENTURE was developed for light handling and to be sporty on the street, comfortable for longer distances and with impressive offroad capability. Strength was a big consideration in the design, so a tubular CroMo steel frame is used with the engine acting as a stressed member to reduce weight and overall size. All design and engineering innovations are focused on being compact and light.

Suspension

Cutting-Edge WP Suspension

When setting off on an adventure ride, there are many variables that can influence the bike’s handling performance. Rider weight, amount of extra luggage, fuel volume, whether there is a pillion passenger or not – these things all have to be considered before racing off. Luckily the KTM 790 ADVENTURE comes with high-quality WP suspension, which is perfectly set up to accommodate the many variables of travel-enduro exploration. With the additional benefit of adjustable rear pre-load, the way your bike rides and handles can be better adjusted to suit most typical riding scenarios, conditions and situations.

Fuel Tank

Exceptional Fuel Range

The 20 liter low-slung fuel tank is central to this bike’s innovative design. With the main volume of the tank placed as low as possible, it lowers the center of gravity for improved handling. It also keeps the bike narrow in the knee area when standing up, for control when riding offroad. The extra space allows a straighter and lower seat to be used, for freedom of movement and better accessibility. To top it all off, there’s an exceptional fuel range of approximately 450 km on the open road - a big advantage on longer adventure tours.
