Hardcore KTM 790

Adventure R Rally revealed!

If you thought KTM’s excellent new middleweight adventure

bike was nice, but not serious enough – even in R trim –

then how about this new 790 Adventure R Rally edition?

The range-topping new model is limited to 500 units

worldwide, making it an instant collector’s item for

adventure motorcycle afficionadoes – with only a handful of

bikes likely to reach our shores.

Aimed at riders who “demand the most hardcore

performance and the very best suspension available,” the

new Rally is certainly special – but owners of the existing R

model needn’t feel too aggrieved. While they can’t replicate

the specialness of the Rally model outright, the majority of

the parts are already in KTM’s Power Parts catalogue.

The limited edition uses the same steel trellis chassis and the

95bhp LC8c parallel twin engine, but in place of the standard

model’s capable WP kit is a set of the firm’s race-spec

XPLOR PRO suspension. That means an additional 30mm of

travel to help committed riders clear even the most awkward

obstacles. The downside comes for the shorter legged, with

the seat height rising to 910mm as a result.

Up front there’s an XPLOR PRO 7548 cone valve fork that

offers a huge range of damping performance, combining

ride comfort with excellent bottoming-out resistance.

At the rear is an XPLOR PRO 6746 shock absorber with

progressive damping system (PDS) designed to match the

fork’s performance.

The Rally also gets a lighter Akrapovic exhaust, carbon

fibre tank protectors and Quickshifter, as well as its own

graphics package, a clear screen and winglets. It also

comes with narrower rims fitted with tubes, a straight racing

seat and Rally footrests for improved comfort and stability

when standing.
