Inspired by the spirit of the world’s two-wheeled explorers; The 2024 KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY harnesses the very best of KTM’s rally success and engineering know-how as the most performance driven Adventure motorcycle yet. But that isn’t all! KTM South Africa has secured extremely limited units for the South African market and there is no need for the end customer to take part in the the pre-order process.
Offroad is at the very heart of KTM, and its rally racing prominence in iconic events such as the Dakar Rally is central to the READY TO RACE mantra of the Austrian brand. With that in mind, the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY encompasses that rally racing prowess in an Adventure machine like no other. With only 700 of these models available worldwide, this exceptional bike, with comparable components to 2023 Dakar Rally winner Kevin Benavides’ Red Bull KTM Factory Racing KTM 450 RALLY bike, is the most offroad capable two-wheeled Adventurer on the market.
Style, functionality and technology are important, but feeling and rideability is perhaps the most critical feature of a motorcycle that’s been evolved in rally for the longest days in the desert and trickiest of stony ravines; that’s why the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY boasts sublime suspension componentry with the lightweight WP XPLOR PRO 7548 fork system using Cone Valve technology combined with the WP XPLOR PRO 6746 shock absorber, that are both from the WP Pro Components program. With WP’s experience from successful rally competition, this premium suspension offers the highest level of damping performance in the toughest of conditions, giving the rider a limitless feeling to push harder and faster over obstacles, while maintaining a higher level of comfort and control. In addition, this suspension system provides a superior ride for globetrotters carrying large amounts of luggage or a pillion on their journeys, both on asphalt and offroad, with its 270 mm of travel.
Performance-driven means factory developed. The 889 cc KTM engine offers 100 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm with 105 hp, and is combined with select components such as the lightweight Akrapovič Slip-on Line exhaust system, similar to that used by KTM’s factory racing teams. With its Offroad ABS system, Traction Control, TURN-BY-TURN+ navigation and multiple ride modes to select depending on terrain, the technology on the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R RALLY, with its 5” TFT display, TECH PACK and Connectivity Unit kit, makes this exciting two-wheeler extra-ready to explore new horizons. With all areas of the riding experience considered, this exceptional model boasts a race-specific Rally seat, heavy duty wheels with Excel rims for the tougher terrain, and Rally footpegs for increased feeling and grip on long liaisons. Carbon tank guards combined with further protection for the engine, rear master cylinder and suspension are also fitted. A Supersprox-Stealth rear sprocket is utilized as is a brand-new rally-derived and eye-catching functional design. No stone has been left unturned in developing this incredibly capable offroader, which is likely to make owners the envy of their fellow explorers.
