890 Adventure R Rally 2021 KTM Bike Review Specs

However, there are only seven hundred of the 890 Adventure R Rally 2021 KTM Bike in the world. The only thing restricting the KTM 890 Adventure R Rally is the production run, which has WP Pro Components suspension on par with that seen on the works KTM 450 Rally.

The WP XPLOR PRO suspension kit is the standout feature of this premium model, which includes a high-strength steel chassis and an updated and more potent 105hp LC8c parallel-twin engine. Extreme riders will appreciate that it is made in the same section as WP’s Factory Racing gear and delivers comparable performance. A seat height of 910 mm has been achieved thanks to an extra 30 mm of suspension travel in the rear and front compared to the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R model.

Bigger Engine

More significant displacement results in more production and a greater return on investment. A new persona has emerged. Power, torque, and a livelier feel are enhanced by a 90cc increase in displacement over the KTM 790 ADVENTURE.

In comparison to the KTM 790 ADVENTURE, which produces 70 kW and ninety-five horsepower, the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY and the KTM 890 Adventure R deliver 77 kW or 105 HP at 8,000RPM and 100Nm of maximum torque at 6,500 RPM (a rise of 12 Nm over the sister model). The 90.7 mm bore, 68.8 mm stroke, and 13,5.1 psi of compression are responsible for the results. Flow-optimized ports and more significant intake and exhaust valves are other modifications. To provide 20% more spinning mass than the KTM 790 Adventure, the unit has higher valve spring rates and oval steel springs. The gyroscopic function of the internals gives the 4-stroke, twin, DOHC engine improved cornering stability and a more stable engine character at a constant speed (or low and mid-throttle usage). In the end, the clutch was improved to cope with the higher torque and power output.


The innovative Cornering Motorcycle Traction Control system is used on the two new models. Traction control settings may be fine-tuned to a greater extent because of the separate controllers for wheel slip and pitch angle. Power decrease is less severe in straight-line acceleration, making it easier to feel pitch control. As one of KTM’s best offerings to the motorcycle industry, cornering MTC is a high-end protection asset for specific KTM models.

KTM 890 ADVENTURE models now have a new system that responds more quickly to a fundamental principle: whether the rear wheel’s rotational speed is disproportionate to the motorcycle’s current state of motion. The MTC software decreases engine power by intervening at the throttle valves in milliseconds. The chosen riding mode impacts the degree of rear-wheel traction slip. Advanced riders may also deactivate traction control.

There is a RALLY mode on the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R Rally. The MTC intervention may be fine-tuned with up to nine slip levels. The series is intended to help various riders, from novice off-roaders to seasoned adventurers. There is a wide range of options for selecting RALLY modes on the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R Rally, which allows riders to do delicate and skillful maneuvers like front wheel lift on acceleration and rear-wheel drifts. Rally mode may be added to the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R as an option for an additional fee.

Chassis & Suspension

A “prize-winner” from KTM’s chassis engineering can be found in the KTM 790 ADVENTURE. To emphasize the motorcycle’s small, balanced, and low center of gravity, the modern engine, electronics, and high-end suspension were slung into the frame. It was immediately reassuring and reassuring. The dirt or gravel might also benefit from an even faster and more flexible dynamic due to this. A low seat height and appropriate ground clearance and usability ensured that the bike could be throttled in any situation.

Using cone valve technology, the WP XPLOR PRO 7548 fork provides infinite damping performance and comfort, and bottoming resistance in a single package. Adjusting levels that were previously only possible via adjusting the shim stack may now be done from the outside. Because it has an infinite opening range, the cone valve reduces the harshness of the suspension.

With KTM’s unparalleled rally expertise, WP XPLOR PRO 6746 shock absorbers for the KTM 890 ADVENTURE RALLY have been built to the highest possible standard. The damping performance of the shock absorber has increased significantly due to the use of new, low-friction components. The shock absorber uses a progressive damping system (PDS) and has separate high and low-speed compression damping adjustments for comprehensive control over the damping characteristics.

The new KTM 890 ADVENTURE R is equipped with a revised 48 mm WP XPLOR fork, which combines high-quality materials with 240 mm of travel for optimal offroad performance. With springs on both sides and distinct damping mechanisms, it was initially designed for Enduro racing. Twist controls on the top of the forks allow quick and easy adjustments, and a sealed hydro-stop provides excellent resistance to bottoming-out.

With a WP XPLOR shock absorber and front fork that each has 240 mm of travel, the new KTM 890 ADVENTURE R is well-suited for offroad performance. Preload, high- and low-speed compression, and rebound damping are all independently adjustable. Using KTM’s unique progressive damping system (PDS) as utilized in the racing Enduro models, the rear suspension offers progressive damping without a linkage system. The second piston and closed cup (instead of needle) offer bottoming resistance after the stroke, backed by a progressive shock spring.
