The KTM 990 Adventure superceded the 950 Adventure, with the main difference from the 950 being new fuel injection. Many riders found the fuel injection snatchy and sought out aftermarket throttle tubes with different shapes to pull the throttle cable in efforts to smooth out delivery.

Like the 950 Adventure, a 30mm taller suspension version of the 990 Adventure was available this time bearing an R designation, which also gave the R 30mm more ground clearance over the standard model.
