KTM has upgraded the midweight 890 ADVENTURE.
The KTM 890 ADVENTURE has been designed to be the master of all conditions.
The responsive LC8 engine remains, with its output of 105 hp and 100 Nm/6500 rpm of torque. A low centre of gravity with the 20 litre fuel tank design pushes the slim form of the KTM 890 ADVENTURE to the fore and accentuates the ergonomics. Riders can feel the nimbleness in both sitting and standing positions.
KTM grafted to place the seat height low while keeping ground clearance high without compromising the feeling of comfort and performance. For 2023 one of the most significant changes has been made to the front mask between the head of the bike and the fuel tank. It is now integrated with a fairing section reinforced to offer more security and more load-bearing capability for larger GPS devices.
Reworked WP Suspension APEX 43 mm front forks now come with adjustment for rebound and compression accessible from the top caps. The APEX shock, engineered and slotted into the bike to minimise height, has new settings for adventure riding. The improved ABS is synced closer to the ride modes, therefore OFFROAD ABS is activated automatically in OFFROAD or RALLY. The KTM 890 ADVENTURE can be clicked into STREET, OFFROAD, RAIN and an optional RALLY mode. An innovative DEMO setting gifts the rider the chance to try the full gamut of Rider Aids for the first 1,500 km before deciding whether to purchase and keep them permanently.
KTM has streamlined the ride due to a new, higher screen that offers increased wind protection and the overhauled 5” TFT display has a redesigned software system of menus and infographics that make alterations even simpler. The backlight changes intensity as it reacts to the environment and better synchronicity between the TFT and the KTMconnect App means seeing Turn-by-Turn+ navigation directions, listening to audio and taking calls has never been easier or more intuitive. A 2023 feature now enables riders to list their ‘top ten’ calls by the last ones made or favourites list and is another added convenience of the advanced setup. The Turn-by-Turn+ empowers the rider to add extra customisation to their navigation details on the go and from the bike’s TFT menu without having to stop and fish around for their mobile device.
Sportier graphics and more dynamic looks comes with new aluminium engine and tank protector. Other additions include a handlebar switch with hazard warning and PIRELLI SCORPION STRs.
