    KTM has announced the new for 2021 KTM 890.

    KTM also announced a new era, #AdventureHarder

    The new 890cc engine features a lot of updates over the 790 and the cc increase is achieved through a combination of longer stroke and bigger bore.

    You can check out all the changes on the official KTM.com website: https://www.ktm.com/en-us/models/travel/890-adventure-r-2021.html

    No power specs have been released yet, but the 890 Duke was recently dyno’d by Cycleworld magazine at 109 HP @ 9,900rpm and 82NM of torque @ 8700rpm, an increase of 11 HP and 3 NM.

    There are major safety concerns arising on the ktm with the abs and rotors failing, was looking at one of these 790R or 890R , but now very cautious about them as they seem to have ongoing electrical issues as well? Will follow with interest over the next few months,
