KTM 790 Adventure 2023

KTM 790 Adventure 2023

The KTM 790 Adventure is still one of the sportiest mid-range touring enduros - if you are looking for a touring machine that is brutally nimble on and off road, you will find it here. At the same time, however, the chassis and engine offer sufficient comfort and good manners to keep the rider from going mad even on longer liaison stages. The engine is wonderfully powerful for this class, fuel consumption is surprisingly low and the driving aids are even on a higher level than usual. The ergonomics are fine on the road, the off-road ergonomics could even be a little less radical. Overall, however, the 790 Adventure offers a really good price/performance ratio and great riding performance.
