- The BS6-compliant 790 ADV is likely to be homologated in India.
- It gets spoke wheels at both ends — 21-inch front and 18-inch at the rear.
- Likely to get the same features as the current 790 Adventure.
In the 2019 India Bike Week, KTM brought a wide selection of motorcycles from racing machines to their biggest and worst motorcycles on the market. Among them was the 790 Adventure. As our resources, KTM is likely to launch the 790 ADV in India before Diwali, September to be specific, per.
The forthcoming 790 Adventure will be homologated to make sure KTM meets the upcoming emission norms. Contemplating the 790 ADV we don’t think KTM will add any new attributes. It’s likely to acquire exactly the very same attributes as seen on the present 790 ADV such as traction control, cornering ABS along an off-road’ style.
The 790 Adventure is very likely to be powered with precisely the 799cc unit as the version. But since KTM engineers will have to tweak it to comply with the new emission standards, we think it could have a different power output compared to the older version. The 790 Adventure makes 94PS of torque of 88Nm and also power.
If you’ve got deep pockets and are not into experience bikes, KTM is also working on a 790 ADV-based 890 GT, which has been spotted a few months ago. As of this moment, the motorcycle is still under development, therefore we can expect it to debut at this year’s EICMA.
The bicycle maker includes a more hardcore’R’ variant of the 790 ADV for international masses, but there’s no confirmation. We expect the 790 Adventure to be priced around Rs 11.5 lakh (ex-showroom). In terms of competition, it is going to lock horns with the BMW 750GS and also the Triumph Tiger 800 XRx.
