THE MOST OFFROAD CAPABLE TRAVEL BIKES


(Press release)

If you're looking for a high-performance motorcycle that's lightweight and compact, one that specializes in adventure touring with the ability to explore further offroad when the asphalt ends, then look no further than the 2019 KTM 790 ADVENTURE. With its all new chassis, WP 43 mm APEX open cartridge upside down front fork, new 799 cc LC8c engine that's specifically adapted to the needs of adventure riding, and KTM's offroad genes, the KTM 790 ADVENTURE is built for endless exploration, whether it's in the desert, on remote mountain trails or a transcontinental crossing. Riding in all environments and conditions is assisted by an electronics package that includes a full-color TFT dashboard, motorcycle traction control (MTC) working in conjunction with ride mode selection including Street, Offroad, Rain and optional Rally mode, motor slip regulation (MSR) and cornering ABS with Offroad ABS mode. No other twin-cylinder travel enduro bike can match this package.
