A pre-production prototype of the KTM 800 Adventure has been spotted testing in Europe for the first time thereby confirming the existence of the model.
KTM has been busy bring new models and renewing its existing ones. The Austrian brand’s adventure tourer portfolio has been expanding steadily of late.
KTM recently introduced the entry level 1090 Adventure to target A2 license holders in Europe and also launched the flagship 1290 Super Adventure. The upcoming 800 Adventure which is based on a new twin-cylinder platform is expected to be the most affordable member of the brand’s Adventure family.
The test mule which appears to be sporting makeshift bodywork is equipped with spoke wheels and an upward swooping exhaust canister. These elements indicate that the new KTM will be a hardcore middle weight off-roader.
The new twin-cylinder 800 cc liquid-cooled engine is expected to belt out around 100 PS. A long travel inverted telescopic front fork and a rear monoshock constitute the suspension system. We expect the suspension system to be fully adjustable.
KTM will first launch the Duke 800 street fighter which was also spotted testing recently. The Duke 800 will be followed by the 800 Adventure.
