New Delhi: KTM has unveiled the 790 Adventure for the international market by 2023. Two color options - MY-23 Black and MY-23 White - and a new, slimmer fairing give the motorcycle updated styling.
The brand built the ADV in Mattighofen, Austria, which will be built at the CFMOTO factory in China. It is powered by a 799cc parallel-twin engine.
The KTM Adventure line of motorcycles are viewed by many as aspirational products in the middleweight ADV segment. They take their cues from the brand's diverse lineup of capable off-road racing motorcycles.
Upgrading from the 790 Adventure to the 1290 Adventure range has always been possible. The updated motorcycle features a new design aesthetic which is at par with the 450 Rally model.
The 2023 KTM 790 Adventure features split-type seats, bash plate, upswept exhaust, LED headlamp with integrated DRLs, upright windscreen, 20-litre fuel tank, sleek fairing with auxiliary lights and more. It also has an aggressive design language.
It gets a 5.0-inch TFT instrument cluster with Bluetooth that works with the Connect app. The wheels of the motorcycle are wire-spoke.
The 799cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that powers the 2023 KTM 790 Adventure produces a maximum output of 93.8bhp at 8,000rpm and 87Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed transmission with bi-directional quickshifter and PASC anti-hopping clutch.
The KTM 790 Adventure features disc brakes on both front and rear wheels, along with cornering ABS, traction control and multiple riding modes, all of which are included for the safety of the rider.
The motorcycle is suspended by 43mm "WP APEX" inverted forks and a preload-adjustable "WP APEX" mono-shock unit at the front and rear respectively.
The bike manufacturer is yet to reveal the pricing and availability details of the KTM 790 Adventure. We anticipate that the ADV motorcycle will be more expensive than the current model, which retails for £8,597 (roughly Rs. 8.51 lakh) in the UK.
