The 2023 890 Adventure will feature minor cosmetic changes, a revamped TFT screen, and more.
The new version of the 890 Adventure has been finally revealed by KTM for the European markets. The new KTM 890 Adventure will join the recently unveiled 2023 KTM 890 Adventure R. The bike continues to receive power from the same 889cc LC8c parallel twin engine that produces 103bhp and 100Nm, and it comes paired with a six-speed gearbox.
The 2023 model has a brawny ADV styling with a tall stance. The headlight and screen designs have been altered in the new model. The front and side fairings are now more consistent, claims the company. However, the vertically stacked LED headlight has been retained. It now has a new windscreen that sits more upright and is designed to reduce buffeting. Further, this bike has obtained a new alloy guard to shield the engine and fuel tank.
The new model's steel tube frame is unmodified, but it is now suspended on retuned 43mm WP Apex USD forks. This suspension is fully-adjustable for rebound and compression. Also, the rear end is outfitted with a WP Apex mono-shock. The front and rear disc brakes, which are mounted on 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spoked wheels covered in Pirelli Rally STR tyres, are unchanged.
The latest version has received a revised 5-inch TFT display to assist the rider in tracking smartphone connectivity. The bike is also equipped with cruise control, traction control, TPMS (tyres pressure monitoring system) and a quick-shifter.
The KTM 890 Adventure's engine and traction control character can be adjusted by clicking into Street, Offroad, Rain, and an optional Rally mode, and a Demo setting will permit the rider to try the full range of optional rider aids for the first 1,500 kilometres which will help in deciding whether he wants to purchase and keep them permanently or not.
In terms of price, no update has been shared by KTM for this 2023 model, but speculations are rife that it will cost more than the existing one. The updated 890 Adventure competes with the Ducati Multistrada V2, the Triumph Tiger 900, the Yamaha Tenere 700, and more.
