KTM Releases Details On Exclusive 890 Adventure R Rally For 2024

Restricted to a run of just 700 units worldwide.

Published on 09.07.2023

KTM just lifted the cover off their race-bred 890 Adventure R Rally model for 2024. Inspired by KTM’s Dakar-winning 450 Rally, this machine is equipped with race-spec components on par with the full-factory rally bike and a host of other premium parts from the top shelf of KTM’s PowerParts catalog. However, just as with previous year models, this Rally version has been restricted to a run of just 700 units worldwide so you’ll have to be fast to catch one.

The limited-edition KTM 890 Adventure Rally features a 889cc powerplant pumping out 105 horsepower and 73.76 ft-lbs of torque. Suspension duties are carried out by the lightweight WP XPLOR PRO 7548 fork system using Cone Valve technology, combined with the WP XPLOR PRO 6746 shock absorber, that are both from the WP Pro Components program. With its 270 mm of travel, this premium suspension is designed for aggressive off-road riding while providing a comfortable ride for globetrotters carrying large amounts of luggage or a passenger on their journeys – both on asphalt and offroad.

To handle more demanding off-road riding, the KTM 890 Adventure R Rally boasts heavy duty wheels with 2.15 x 21″ and 4.00 x 18″ Excel rims, a race-specific Rally seat, a high front fender and Rally footpegs for increased feeling and grip on long liaisons. Enhanced protection is delivered by carbon tank guards which combine with further protection for the engine, rear master cylinder and suspension. Moreover, a Supersprox-Stealth rear sprocket is utilized as is a brand-new rally-derived and eye-catching functional design.

I just can’t get on board with those ugly tanks bulging out the side. I would rather do more gas stops or take a rotopac. Just can’t do it.

For some looks are half the reason to own a bike. To others, what works best is what is beautiful. Personally I believe that form should follow function, and the 890 Adventure is an awesome handling bike.
