2022 KTM 790 Adventure Review – My Attitude My Bike : Hello friends, if you are thinking of buying a “Bike” and you have no detailed idea about car, I welcome you to this blog. Today I will let you know – “2022 KTM 790 Adventure Review”.

KTM has garnered a reputation (deservedly) for building high-performance, hard-edged machines that cater to what we might call the “one percent” of adventure riders. Let’s just say, you don’t hear jokes about KTMs and Starbucks parking lots. Its highly anticipated, new-for-2022 790 Adventure exemplifies that philosophy (read our comprehensive on- and off-road review here): an eminently capable lightweight ADV tourer that was designed for excursions into some pretty gnarly territory, especially in the off-road oriented R variation.

Specification of 2022 KTM 790 Adventure

The KTM 790 Adventure is based on the 790 Duke, and shares the same 799 cc, parallel-twin engine, but in a slightly different state of tune, putting out 94 bhp at 8,250 rpm and 88 Nm of peak torque at 6,600 rpm, 1,500 rpm lower than the 790 Duke, while peak power is also marginally down. The parallel-twin engine though has a meaty low-end, and with a slightly punchier low-end grunt, the 790 Adventure is certainly going to be an entertaining offering in the middleweight adventure bike segment. With a dry weight of 189 kg, the 790 Adventure should be easy to handle and light on its feet for light off-road work for beginners and some heavy duty off-road riding.

The 790 Adventure runs on a 21-inch front wheel and 18-inch rear wheel combination, both spoked wheels, with a non-adjustable 43 mm WP upside down fork upfront with 200 mm of travel, and a preload-adjustable WP monoshock at the rear with 200 mm of rear wheel travel. Four riding modes are on offer – Street, Off-Road, Rain or Rally, and are aided by the lean-sensitive Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC), as well as cornering ABS. If the KTM 790 Duke is any indication, the 790 Adventure certainly will shake up the middleweight adventure segment in India, once it’s launched, in our estimates, between Rs. 11.50 lakh* (ex-showroom).

2022 KTM 790 Adventure Review : Powertrain & Range

The new for 2022 KTM 790 Adventure is the ever so slightly tamer and more road biased version of the flagship 790 Adventure R. It’s KTM’s latest take on the adventure bike class and a step away from 240kg +, 125bhp + bikes that currently define the class.

Although more road focussed, it can’t hide its off-road credentials and while it has less ground clearance, suspension travel and lower-spec forks, it retains its true adventure credentials thanks to its true off-road wheel sizes: 21” front and 18” rear.

Power comes courtesy of the same 799cc double overhead cam parallel twin motor first introduced in the 790 Duke in 2018, but with revised mapping for more mid range. With 95bhp at 8,000 rpm and 65ft/lb torque at 6,600rpm it has similar figures to the Honda Africa Twin or BMW 850GS, but due to its weight – 43kg lighter than the Honda – it feels lively and more responsive.

While it’s not fast like its big brother KTM 1290 Super Adventure or Ducati Multistrada Enduro, what it does have is easy to access and fun to play with. There is a great throttle connection giving precise control everywhere in the rev range.

2022 KTM 790 Adventure Review : Performance

The bike we tested was the base model 790 Adventure. A little more road-focused than the R and the limited-edition R Rally, with a taller screen and shorter suspension travel (200mm vs 240 for the R and 270 for the R Rally), the entry model proved more than capable for the roads and byways we encountered on our rip round some of Surrey’s stunning countryside. The capacious 20-litre fuel tank sits low on each side of the bike.

This gives the bike excellent low-speed manners as the centre of gravity is lower than some of its more top heavy, ‘traditionally-tanked’ rivals. It also serves as protection for the motor from spray, stones and, of course, the occasional rider error that results in the bike laying on its side.

Like the boxer-engined BMW R1250GS, those ‘sticky-out’ bits — combined with an all-up weight of 189kg — make it a lot easier to pick up. The only quirk to this fuel tank layout is that the gauge starts at half a tank — though how often would you bother to start looking for a petrol station when you’ve over half a tank, anyway?

While we’re on the subject of instrumentation, the TFT display is very clear and easy to read. Flicking through the various modes for the traction control and ABS is easy enough too, or at least it is once you’ve got the hang of it.

A faster way to switch it all off for off-road use would be nice, especially when you’re not stopping from tarmac to trail, though I guess KTM is hampered by regulation and the need to make bikes reset to the ‘safest’ modes.

On the road the bike is very easy to ride. The clutch is light making town work a doddle and the power delivery is easy-going with loads of low-down grunt. The parallel twin motor really gets going at around 5,500rpm, with the flashing rev-counter urging you to change gear at around 6,000rpm.

The gearbox is also super-slick and, with the optional quickshifter, precise with fast and clean cog-swapping.

The suspension, as with all KTMs, is made by WP and is high quality. The rear shock is adjustable for preload, useful for riding with pillions and/or luggage and feels plush and controlled both on and off road.

The front forks also feel well damped, and despite being unadjustable, miraculously work well in all conditions, giving good feel and control. The Brembo brakes also help to keep everything in check; plenty enough power for the road, enough feel for the dirt.

Off-road, the 790 is highly capable. Perhaps more importantly, it’s predictable. KTM’s years of experience in producing some of the most successful and highly-regarded off-road bikes really comes through in the 790.

Our Opinion

If there was room for only one motorcycle in the garage, KTM makes a strong argument for that spot. The 790 impresses with its cozy manner around town. Yet when it’s time to gear up and head out of the city it eagerly complies. Factor in its fantastically capable enduro-style suspension and highly customizable electronic and chassis components and you have a practical motorcycle that’s up for most any adventure.
