KTM pulled the covers off its KTM 790 ADVENTURE R prototype, hinting how the Austrian firm’s model line-up will further expand, thanks to a completely new engine generation with its 799cc LC8c parallel twin powerplant.
EICMA was an opportunity for indicating what highly exciting further options to utilise the LC8c parallel twin are looming on the horizon. Just one example: the KTM 790 ADVENTURE R. This is what the adventure community has been eagerly awaiting; a lightweight, compact, midrange-travel enduro with outstanding cross-country ability.
The KTM 790 ADVENTURE R prototype fully embraces the Austrian company’s READY TO RACE philosophy. With its high dashboard tower, single seat, tiny LED lights and low-slung fuel tanks, the KTM 790 ADVENTURE R is clearly inspired by the KTM Rally machines that dominate competition the world over. The LC8c punches hard from inside its lightweight and extremely rugged chassis, complete with top-quality WP Suspension components front and rear. Naturally, a production version of this would come with the very best electronic rider assistance package too.
