Adventure to the extreme
After the success of the previous version of the 890 Adventure R Rally, the orange brand has decided to launch its new version in 2024, much more radical and with the advantage of being able to be used on the road, representing a more versatile option than that current KTM 450 Rally Replica.
with like that only 700 units available with reservations starting September 20, 2023; KTM offers the most radical motorcycle in its adventure catalog and perhaps the most radical in its segment, with a motorcycle that is up to any challenge on any surface. In addition, with the purchase of the new KTM 890 Adventure R Rally: KTM is offering an additional adventure package called “Ultimate KTM Desert Experience” for only 34 of the 700 buyers.
In the world of motorcycling, it is impossible not to associate the word “rally” with the KTM brand, since its history in competitions in this discipline around the world is unknown to almost no one, which is why the Mattighofen brand wants to offer its customers an extreme Machine that offers a similar feeling to its competing motorcycles, but at the same time can be an ally when traveling off-road or in less radical moments; The platform is the same as that of the KTM 890 Adventure R, a motorcycle that already seems very aggressive in its segment for rough terrain and has very sharp engine values to ride on the asphalt at a very good pace.
The surname “Rally” we find in a series of components adopted from the KTM 450 Rally Factory, starting with the suspensions of the renowned WP house, which in this unit incorporates components from the “Pro Components” saga. The inverted front fork is the reference WP XPLOR Pro 7548 with 270 mm travel, the rear suspension also has a reference monoshock WP XPLOR Pro 6748 also with 270 mm travel. Both systems are fully configurable in terms of compression, preload and rebound. The WP Pro suspensions focus on keeping the motorcycle on the ground for as long as possible to ensure traction at all times while maintaining rider comfort and absorbing road bumps without transferring the load to the support triangle. On the asphalt, the suspensions change their facets and provide a lot of stability at high speeds and in corners, regardless of whether the motorcycle is fully loaded.
Crank the engine
The liquid-cooled in-line two-cylinder 889 CC has a very remarkable and balanced torque and torque delivery in its segment, as in this rally version it delivers 105 hp of power at 8000 rpm and a torque of 100 Nm at 6500 rpm for more momentum A special Akrapovic exhaust ensures that the map in the control unit is adapted to this exhaust. It also has the bi-directional Quickshifter+ for sporty rides on the road.
Tech pack equipment
The new KTM 890 Adventure R Rally would not be complete without the package of electronic aids present in the standard version (many of which are optional in this version) and 100% included in this Rally version, such as: Quickshifter+, which we have already mentioned, ABS – Off Road, riding modes (Road, Rain, Off Road, Rally), smartphone connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, configurable traction control, cruise control and engine hold settings.
