If you're as excited as we are to ride/own the KTM 790 Adventure and Adventure R, you'll be happy to learn that the heavily off-road-leaning R model and more road-biased non-R have been priced at $13,499 and $12,499 respectively.
While the middleweight ADV world is getting crowded these days, fans of KTM’s dirt-bike-derived light-is-right philosophy won’t be out of bounds in anticipating that the 790 Adventure line will probably be the most gnarly bikes in the category. And the price is right.
How does KTM do it? Well, for one, beginning in 2020, all motorcycles featuring the LC8c motor (including the 790 Duke and a future supermoto model—if rumors are to be believed) will be built in China. KTM partnered with CFMoto to build a new production facility that will churn out these little parallel-twin beauties like clockwork. Hopefully.
