KTM 790 ADVENTURE R IS AVAILABLE HERE
KTM 790 ADVENTURE R is yet another motorcycle hitting the mid-size adventure motorcycle segment. The KTM has been all around trying to find the winning size adventure bike. From 390 to 1290 and everything in between. The KTM 790 Adventure come in both an R version which is more off-road minded with a taller suspension and listed offroader front fender and a S version that is more street prepared.
Both bikes have big tanks which give the rider great reach between gas stations, and the display give you control over a whole long line of modes and settings to map you ride the way you find best fit. There are almost too many options and you really have to be quite an experienced rider to get the real benefits of the different electrical rider assist features.
R or S version?
The point of gravity is low making the bike handle extremely well in the tight curves, but the low tanks also make the bike feel a little clumpy and wide on the dirt. Yet the built quality is solid and the bike can take a beating on the rough terrain. It is nice to ride an adventure bike that you actual feel can take to hits and the ridning becomes so much more smooth when you are not worried about losing plastic covers and fender as is the case with some other brands.
Over all you can’t go wrong on neither the KTM Adventure R nor S version bikes and it probably come more down to the rider’s stature as the R version is pretty tall seat height, while the S version can be ridden by most.
