The most notable upgrade over its predecessor is the engine. Pumping out an impressive power, the engine in the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY boasts a spate of upgrades - most notably, a significant jump in power and torque. Improvements to electronics and pre-muffler also ensure it meets the strictest emissions regulations. This, paired with a 15,000 km service interval and low fuel consumption, makes it ready to hit the long road.
The overall geometry of the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY 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. All design and engineering innovations are focused on being compact and light.
An aluminum, tapered handlebar allows maximum control while affording riders a comfortable riding position. The handlebar can be mounted in six different positions, which results in 30 mm of adjustment range for the perfect reach.
Made to withstand the harshest of terrains, the bodywork on the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY is purposely kept to a minimum. Robust plastics, molded in a unique RALLY-specific color retain their appearance, even when scratched. The tank spoilers and rear side panels are slightly wider than the seat for improved control and reduce wear and tear on the seat. The LED headlight mask takes its design cues from the KTM FACTORY RALLY machines to create a slim, lightweight front end with improved ground visibility.
LED lights are used on the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY as the main headlight and taillight. LED lights offer great illumination and visibility. The design of the headlight mask was inspired by the KTM 450 RALLY motorcycles, providing improved visibility and reducing the overall volume of the cockpit when attacking offroad terrain.
