KTM 790 Duke Gives Life To New Adventure R Concept
We already knew the new 790 Duke would be getting an Adventure makeover, but now we have the prototype to prove it.
A middleweight, light and nimble adventure bike has been on the cards for a while now and the 790 Adventure prototype definitely looks the part. With that Dakar styling and angular agressive lines it has all the hallmarks of a rally performer.
Utilising the new 799cc LC8c parallel-twin debuted in the 790 Duke, the Adventure R bridges the gap between KTM’s enduro prowess and their Adventure series.
KTM says it will be the most “performance-focused mid-weight travel enduro of its class, with a dynamism and power-to-weight ratio normally found in larger displacement bikes.”
