2024 KTM 890 Adventure R Rally Review – Specs

The introduction of the 2024 KTM 890 Adventure R Rally signifies KTM’s commitment to elevating its off-road capabilities within the parallel-twin-powered adventure motorcycle segment. Building upon the foundation of the 890 Adventure R, the Rally version boasts several key enhancements tailored for more demanding off-road excursions:

  1. Upgraded Suspension: Improved suspension components are crucial for handling the rigors of off-road terrain. The upgraded suspension on the 890 Adventure R Rally suggests that KTM is aiming to provide riders with enhanced off-road performance, stability, and control.
  2. Enhanced Electronics: Advanced electronics can significantly contribute to a bike’s overall performance and safety. The mention of enhanced electronics implies that the 890 Adventure R Rally may feature updated rider aids, traction control, and other electronic systems designed to optimize the riding experience, especially in challenging off-road conditions.
  3. Additional Protection: Off-road adventures often expose motorcycles to various elements and obstacles. The reference to additional protection indicates that KTM has likely incorporated design elements or components to safeguard the bike from the challenges encountered in off-road environments.

These features collectively suggest that the 2024 KTM 890 Adventure R Rally is specifically tailored for riders who seek a high-performance adventure motorcycle capable of tackling challenging off-road trails. For the latest and most detailed information, it’s recommended to refer to KTM’s official announcements or contact authorized KTM dealers.

The 2024 KTM 890 Adventure R Rally gets fully adjustable suspension from the WP Pro Components department. That means the Xplor Pro 7548 fork and an Xplor Pro 6748 shock. The fork uses WP’s Cone Valve system, while the shock has progressive damping rather than being assisted by linkage. The action of the suspension is tuned to encourage aggressive off-road riding, and there are 10.6 inches of wheel travel at each end.

To handle more demanding off-road riding, the Rally gets stronger Excel rims with Mitas Enduro Trail E-07+ tires. The spoked wheels are tube-type and employ the pure off-road 21-/18-inch pairing.

The ride-by-wire Rally comes with the Tech Pack. That means an attractive suite of standard electronic enhancements—a quickshifter, traction control, cruise control, and Rally mode.

KTMconnect is part of the five-inch TFT dash. You can pair your smartphone via Bluetooth to the dash for KTM’s Turn-By-Turn+ navigation. Many of the Sygic-developed KTMconnect features are subscription-based, however.

A titanium Akrapovič muffler is used to reduce weight. It’s 35 percent lighter than its counterpart of the standard R. There is no claim of increased performance, however.

The Rally has many hard-parts upgrades over the standard R. The seat is a racing design, the footpegs are larger, there’s an aluminum rear master cylinder guard, carbon fiber guards for the tank, a larger fork guard, a Supersprox Stealth rear sprocket, and an engine protection grill. Rally-specific plastic and graphics are part of the package.

Buyers of the new Rally can participate in the Ultimate KTM Desert Experience in Morocco. For $5400, you get a full factory-style ride on a pre through the African countryside. There are two rides in March 2024—the 3rd to the 7th, and the 7th to the 11th. KTM describes the overnight accommodations as “luxury,” and one night is spent camping in the desert. There will be 34 openings for the Experience.

You will have to be patient regarding the 2024 KTM 890 Adventure R Rally. Pre-ordering begins on September 20, and delivery will be in early 2024. The MSRP is $21,499.
