One of EICMA 2017’s most anticipated bikes was unveiled, though sadly as a concept instead of a production model.
Feast your eyes on the KTM 790 Adventure concept bike.
What we do know is that it will use the same or a modified version of the 790cc parallel twin developed for the 790 Duke which, in streetfighter trim, produces 103 hp and 63 pound-feet of torque.
Initial estimates put curb weight around 430 to 440 pounds.
Using the new 799cc LC8c parallel-twin debuted in the Duke, it closes the gap between KTM’s enduros and their Adventure series, a modern interpretation of their market pre-empting 640 Adventure from 1997.
KTM say 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. It’s a 450 Rally for the world traveller.
