The updated KTM 890 ADVENTURE R proves that the destination comes second. With its unmatched ability to dispatch everything from highways to rocky gravel switchbacks, to single goat tracks, the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R boasts serious travel capabilities. Thanks to its incredibly responsive powerplant, pin-sharp offroad handling, and all-day comfort, its all about the journey.
No, the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R hasn't gone soft. On the contrary, KTM rider aids are developed to enhance the overall rider experience by providing more control in different riding scenarios. More so, ABS, MTC, and RIDE MODES allow you to get the most out of your machine when barreling down the tarmac on your way to the rough stuff.
Grab a handful of brakes with total confidence thanks to a new 9.3 MP ABS unit. This allows riders to use full braking power mid-corner with the 6D-sensor doing all the hard work. The 6D-sensor works by continuously monitoring and evaluating the current dynamic state of the motorcycle, enhancing safety and stability during braking. Also, this level of ABS technology is unmatched, providing precise and efficient stopping power with the highest level of safety.
For the 2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE R, Offroad ABS is automatically toggled when you've selected Offroad or Rally Mode. This means ABS functionality is reduced on the front wheel, and completely deactivated on the rear, allowing riders to slide the back-end into a corner. Simply put - more braking power and control in the dirt when you need it, with the ability to shred the trail when you don't.
Reworked fork and shock settings mean the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R provides improved riding comfort, combined with excellent overall suspension performance. This, on top of already boasting the absolute best suspension currently offered on any adventure bike, means riders can tackle the harshest terrain with complete confidence. Oh, and did we mention both fork and shock are easily adjustable too?
A new state-of-the-art full; TFT display keeps you informed with everything you need to know about the machine below you. Featuring improved functionality, each function is illustrated by an infographic of the motorcycle to directly show the user the relevant field of adjustment. An optically bonded mineral glass display ensures optimum scratch and glare resistance. Additionally, an optional Connectivity Unit allows the connection between the KTM connect app and the TFT via Bluetooth for Turn-by-Turn navigation, music, incoming calls, and quick access to KTM roadside assistance.
The 2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE R is fitted with all-new MITAS ENDURO TRAIL rubber, specifically optimized for KTM. These are ideal for riders looking for durability, handling, and mileage on road, but with the added benefit of being able to conquer difficult offroad tracks and trails with ease.
Making use of the latest generation of KTM MTC, traction is improved by using an advanced 6D Inertial Measurement Unit. This not only regulates and controls any slip at the rear wheel but also prevents uncontrolled lifting of the front wheel. With these two forces combined, the motorcycle is guaranteed the best possible acceleration. And when further combined with the data collected from the lean angle sensor, the system detects and controls power wheelies and ensures stability as well as smooth wheel landing and acceleration.
The overall geometry of the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R was developed for light handling, and comfort on long-distance exploration missions - with unchallenged offroad capability. Strength was a big consideration in the design, so a tubular Chromoly steel frame is used with the engine acting as a stressed member to reduce weight and overall size. An all-new engine protector also adds a little more piece of mind when out of the trail. All design and engineering innovations are focused on being compact and light.
With tank spoilers and rear side panels slightly wider than the seat, hitting the long road to nowhere is easier thanks to improved rider movement. This also helps with reduced wear and tear on the seat, while the slim shape of the fuel tank is optimized for precise handling and control when standing on the pegs.
Despite its shorter windshield, the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R serves a dual function. On the one hand, the lower profile allows the rider to move around the bike freely when standing on the pegs - and offers an unobstructed view ahead. On the other, and together with the reworked bodywork, provides aerodynamically optimized protection from windblast while barrelling down the highway to the next trail.
