ADV NewsNew Plug ‘n’ Play Fairing Kit for the KTM 790 Adventure Is Coming

New Plug ‘n’ Play Fairing Kit for the KTM 790 Adventure Is Coming

A quick & easy way to enhance the look of your KTM 790 Adventure.

Published on 05.11.2020

After having brought a full Rally Kit to market for the KTM 790 Adventure last summer, aftermarket manufacturer Rebel X Sports has decided to develop a simpler fairing kit for the bike. The new Plug ‘n’ Play kit offers a way for Adventure Riders to enhance the look of their machine, without having to change out the OEM tower and headlight assembly. This easy upgrade can be done by simply swapping side panels to give a completely new aesthetic feel to your KTM 790 Adventure, along with improved wind protection.

Simply swap the stock side panels to give a completely new aesthetic feel to your KTM 790 Adventure. Touring windscreen is not included in the kit.

The Rebel X kit will be developed in conjunction with their partner Autologue Design, a top brand for bolt-on body kits and various types of prototyping. These sketches are the first designs before testing begins. Experienced Dakar Rally riders will thoroughly test the fairings in order to achieve a top quality product. As far as materials, Rebel X is considering either fiberglass or different types of durable plastics as options.

Main Features

  • Plug ‘n’ Play
  • Improved Air Flow
  • Ktm Adventure Family feel design
  • Testing by real Dakar riders
  • Affordable Price
  • Bolts on the OEM headlight and tower

In addition to the KTM 790 Adventure kit, Rebel X will also develop a similar fairing kit for the KTM 390 Adventure. While both are still being developed, they are expected to cost somewhere in the range of $300-$600 USD with a release date by the end of the summer. “We want a high-quality and easy fitting solution so it could take less or longer. We will be able to tell only after the first tests,” says Angela Gemanariu Administrator at Rebel X Sports. 

Rebel X will also develop a similar fairing kit for the KTM 390 Adventure.

Looks more complete for sure. I’m intrigued and looking forward to the final product.

Looking forward to the final product and someone reporting on how it works beyond just a cosmetic change. I rarely spend a good chunk of change on things to just change the look but this kit looks good and may have a positive aero affect on the highway. It does make the bike look ‘finished’. I’m tempted so far…
