ENGINE & EXHAUST
The LC8c is the most compact performance engine on the market, and the 790 ADVENTURE R’s version was specifically adapted to the needs of serious offroad adventure riding: minimal vibration thanks to two balancer shafts, a 6-speed sequential gearbox, and advanced engineering for weight optimisation. The exhaust is made from stainless steel, as is the muffler, which has been designed to be as small and light as possible to aid mass centralisation. This compact muffler is positioned as high as possible for better ground clearance.
The KTM 890 DUKE R has a simple philosophy when it comes the chassis – be lighter with more stability and be able to push the lean angle without reducing agility. Thanks in part to less unsprung weight and sportier ergonomics, the KTM 890 DUKE R has achieved just that, saving approximately 3.5 kg when compared to the KTM 790 DUKE.
