Earlier this year, a 790 ADV prototype was seen taking on the ultimate off-roader – KTM’s Dakar championship winning motorcycle. The video released by KTM shows how the 790 Adventure manages to stay at par with the Dakar champion over a series of off-road course. Below is the video in which the two off-roaders from KTM battle it out.
