WHERE NOW?

RACE ANYWHERE WITH THE 2023 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S

The benchmark stays but will you go further? The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S removed limits and boundaries for any motorcyclist curious to #DARE2ADV. How? The power, versatility, assurance and technical excellence prompted riders to race into the unknown, safe in the knowledge that what they had underneath them would handle any requirement with a deft touch.

For 2023 KTM has taken the rich base of the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S, engineered to conquer mile after mile on all types of terrain, and added a fresh sheen as well as several refinements for the benefit of practical adventuring.

Eyes will be drawn to the two new shades: the glow of the unmissable signature KTM orange and black trim or the more neutral but elegant hue of KTM’s graded grey aesthetic. The orange, that stretches all the way through to the forged aluminum subframe, engineered to offer a lower seat height (at 849 mm or 869 mm) and superb load-carrying capability, is like a badge of honour for hardcore explorers. However, the classy grey spreads across the bodywork – chiselled to prioritise agile handling, front end confidence, comfort and protection, and houses the 23-litre three-part tank with superlative fuel range. The tone is as fetching for a swift dash into the office, as it would be for a blast across country borders.

Roaming roads everywhere and anywhere with the 2023 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S is now a lot easier thanks to augmented navigation software. KTM already made the 7” TFT display a cinch for customisation thanks to the infographics and menu system that gave the rider full control over the RIDE MODES, advanced WP Semi-Active Suspension, ABS settings and Adaptive Cruise Control. The combination of intuitive handlebar switches and access to the technical possibilities of the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S was a major calling card for one of the company’s flagship models.

For 2023 KTM aimed for more utility – adventurers can now count on extra options with their navigation plotting. The KTMConnect App now boasts Turn-by-Turn+ guidance and waypoint markers while on the go, without having to stop and adjust any mobile device. The same functionality also extends to audio tracks and listing ‘Favourites’ when it comes to phone calls. Being able to keep hands on the handlebars not only means gobbling more mileage, but safe and more enjoyable interaction with the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S.

Let’s remind ourselves why the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S is the ultimate high-performance adventure bike. The V-Twin LC8 rumbles to 160 hp and 138 Nm of torque and the devastating spectrum of power allows the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S to glide on cruise, dip through traffic or devour tarmac with glee. The compact heart of the bike is carefully regulated by one of KTM’s most advanced electronic management architectures, administering the suspension configuration and reaction, ride height, ABS, RIDE MODES, Tyre Pressure Management, Anti-dive and more. The unit fits inside a light, 10 kg chrome-molybdenum stainless steel frame, honed for handling short blasts and mountain passes, as well as the long haul, in equal measure. The rest of the package befits a premium, adventure-travel motorcycle, boasting LED lighting, reengineered windscreen and adjuster, multi-part saddle and light aluminum side-stand. The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S specs have already been met with wide acclaim. The latest model can be elevated even further with optional electronic packs, a Quickshifter+ and WP Suspension Pro amongst other upgrades.

The KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S revels in a wide raft of specially made add-ons and accessories in the KTM PowerParts collection. From extra protective parts, aesthetic touches through detailing, performance enhancements or travel items like luggage, racks and bags; the KTM PowerParts are as enticing as it is well equipped.

DARE TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP

DISCOVER THE WORLD OF EXPLORATION WITH THE REVIVED KTM 790 ADVENTURE

KTM’s expanding worldwide production network has given the travel segment the juiciest ‘throwback’ with the reinvigoration of the KTM 790 ADVENTURE: the original searing combo of torquey power, lithe handling and utter versatility, refreshed for 2023.

In 2018 the bike set the standard for a mix of energising performance and empowerment. It defined the midweight motorcycling travel sector, a niche created by KTM. Riders could gas the KTM 790 ADVENTURE across either tarmac or the trail with utter commitment and confidence, knowing they would have the goods and specifications to overcome a wide range of conditions or landscapes. Come 2022 and there was momentum for an overhaul of this ideal ‘first taste’ foil, for people curious or craving for adventure.

The 2023 KTM 790 ADVENTURE was re-designed and redrafted in Mattighofen, Austria, while production will be carried out to the highest standard by KTM’s close and potent partner, CFMOTO, in their first-class facilities in China. The process will be supervised by KTM staff on the ground. The transcontinental cooperation is not the first for KTM and will ensure the adventure spirit can feed directly into the furthest corners of the globe.

The initial KTM 790 ADVENTURE twin cylinder LC8c motor was memorable for the torque and responsiveness, as well as the remarkable feeling of inertia it provided. For the bike’s comeback, KTM wanted even more ‘rideability’ from the LC8c that still pumps out 95 hp at 8,000 rpm and 88 Nm at 6,500 rpm, while implementing the relevant tweaks required to meet Euro 5 emissions targets.

The 2023 KTM 790 ADVENTURE is now more stable at constant speed and has gained more cornering poise thanks to a 20% increase of rotating mass; an alteration that hasn’t compromised the highly rated agility of the motorcycle, while reworked throttle bodies bring a cleaner and more efficient connection due to the enhanced combustion. The ‘knock control’ sensor allows for a higher state of ignition and better capacity for low octane fuel; a reassuring characteristic to cope with different fuel qualities found while travelling. A reconfigured optional Quickshifter+ enables faster shifting, which can be heard through the very latest exhaust system, updated catalytic converter and pre-muffler. This catalogue of modifications ensures this vibrant generation of the KTM 790 ADVENTURE will be an impeccable choice for both urban adventures and venturing further afield in equal measure. The 9,300 mile service intervals remain.

The dependability of the KTM 790 ADVENTURE is hiked thanks to its reworked Power Assist Slipper Clutch and new friction plates, and the engine breathes freer through a new airbox. The new model also benefits from the latest 6D sensor, otherwise known as the Inertia Management Unit, that can be found on its larger siblings, including the KTM 890 ADVENTURE and KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE models. This sophisticated device informs the Cornering Motorcycle Traction Control and other aspects such as ABS, Motor Slip Regulation and the administration of Ride Modes. In terms of features, the KTM 790 ADVENTURE holds very similar billing to its larger sibling, the KTM 890 ADVENTURE. ABS programmes now automatically switch between the Ride Modes, removing the need for more configuration. KTM has installed an innovative ‘DEMO’ function on the 2023 KTM 790 ADVENTURE, allowing owners to trial the full package of optional riding extras for the first 1,500 km (930 miles) before deciding which settings they decide to purchase.

Refined feeling comes from the 2023 spec 43 mm WP APEX Suspension 200 mm travel fork, with the same allotment for the shock, which features adjustable preload. The construction of the CroMo frame, in which the engine is used as a stressed member, guarantees a robust and stiff constitution for pillion and load-carrying as well as clever positioning of the rear shock for a low seat height (840 mm).

A 20-litre tank and potential 450 km (279 mile) range broadens the horizons of even the hardest adventure rider. For all the time spent in the comfy 2-piece saddle (PowerParts single seat and heated units available), the 2023 KTM 790 ADVENTURE provides even more concessions to the eager traveller.

The tank follows the flow and lines of the bike where a new front mask gives way to an integrated fairing. The bodywork still permits prime contact for rider stability and control, along with being bolstered for the addition of mounts and other GPS devices. A new larger, taller screen provides more wind protection. Full LED lighting illuminates the way, while the 5″ TFT is brighter and more visible as it reacts to ambient lighting. A redesigned menu system and new infographics offer faster and easier customisation and syncing the KTMConnect App will now lead to even more navigational and travel options, such as profiling the ‘top ten’ calls and contacts, and adjusting the parameters of turn-by-turn guidance on the go.

As with the its larger capacity siblings, the KTM PowerParts range is plush with KTM 790 ADVENTURE components for aesthetic add-ons or extra protection, although a lightweight aluminium engine protector is fitted as standard as an extra defence. The plastics (injected moulded with graphics for more resistance) have also been reshaped to guard the seat and fuel tank against unwanted knocks.

The 2023 KTM 790 ADVENTURE comes into two dynamic and eye-catching colourways to mark the ‘second coming’, whilst maintaining the distinctive, signature KTM ADVENTURE looks.

2023 KTM 790 ADVENTURE Highlights:
// Superb performance and technical specifications in its segment
// Austrian created and designed, Chinese-built to the highest production standards
// Bodywork and ergonomic refinements for same unbeatable handling 
// EURO 5 emissions ready LC8c engine with more rideable power
// New screen, front mask, 5” TFT display with redesigned menu system
// New PIRELLI SCORPION STR tyres with large tread blocks for more offroad focus

The 2023 KTM 790 ADVENTURE will be available from April 2023, priced £9,999.

BRUSH AWAY LIMITS

WITH THE NEW 2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE

KTM has further muddied the limits of possibility in the Travel and Adventure motorcycle sector with a sharp upgrade to its midweight monarch: the KTM 890 ADVENTURE. The 2023 edition of the bike that has made any trail, any trip, any road or any route an exercise of ease and adrenaline thanks to unbeatable power, weight, agility, and specific features, is now even better.

The launch of the 2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE opens the second phase of six in the 2023 #DARE2ADV campaign, where KTM is challenging riders by asking them to brush-off the shackles of their own fears and doubts. The bike can do it, why can’t you? Initiatives and events seen in schemes like THE WORLD ADVENTURE WEEK and annual KTM ADVENTURE RALLIES are prime examples of the transformative experiences enabled and promoted by superlative ‘tools’ like the new KTM 890 ADVENTURE. Discover more right here.

The KTM 890 ADVENTURE has been crafted as the ultimate master of all conditions and distances. The raspy and responsive LC8 engine remains, with its fantastic output of 105 hp and 100 Nm/6500 rpm of torque. The motor puts surroundings into motion, while the ride-by-wire power is as assuring as it is thrilling, controllable as it can be wild, stable as it is spectacular. A low centre of gravity with the 20 litre fuel tank design pushes the slim form of the KTM 890 ADVENTURE to the fore and accentuates the ergonomics. Riders can feel the nimbleness and manoeuvrability in both sitting and standing positions. The robust steel subframe means that riding two up or fully laden is a breeze.

So, how can the best be made better? KTM has put the bike into a 360 degree analytical spin to pinpoint several ways in which the rider’s time in the saddle can be even more unrestrained.

KTM grafted to place the seat height low in keeping with the tank’s contribution to the ‘ergo’ (825 mm is possible thanks to various saddle options and the lowering kit slices a further 25 mm away) while keeping ground clearance high without compromising the feeling of comfort and performance. For 2023 one of the most significant changes has been made to the front mask between the head of the bike and the fuel tank. It is now integrated with a fairing section, reinforced to offer more security and more load-bearing capability for larger GPS devices. Further along, the KTM 890 ADVENTURE has wider panels on the tank and side panels to give the seat protection against unwanted bumps or scrapes.

For the more welcome bumps, reworked WP Suspension APEX 43 mm front forks now come with adjustment for rebound and compression accessible from the top caps. The APEX shock, engineered and slotted into the bike to minimize height, has new settings orientated for the wellbeing and demands of adventure riding. The use of a new 9.3 mp ABS unit feeds from the 6D sensor to enable full possible braking power in a range of scenarios. The improved ABS is synced closer to the ride modes, therefore OFFROAD ABS (maximising braking control through disengagement on the rear wheel and lowered amount on the front) is activated automatically in OFFROAD or RALLY. The KTM 890 ADVENTURE can be clicked into STREET, OFFROAD, RAIN and an optional RALLY mode. An innovative DEMO setting gifts the rider the chance to try the full package of available Rider Aids for the first 1,500 km (932 miles), before deciding whether to purchase and keep them permanently.

KTM has streamlined the ride due to a new, higher screen that offers increased wind protection, inspired by the product used on the KTM 450 RALLY. KTM has also packed more comfort into the 2-part seat with a new soft foam structure, along with increasing aerodynamics and rain protection with a slimmer front fender.

The overhauled 5” TFT display draws particular attention, not only for the revised hardware (bonded mineral glass for extra scratch and glare resistance), but the redesigned software system of menus and infographics that make alterations to the behavior of the KTM 890 ADVENTURE even simpler. The backlight changes intensity as it reacts to the environment and better synchronicity between the TFT and the KTMconnect App means seeing Turn-by-Turn+ navigation directions, listening to audio and taking calls has never been easier or more intuitive. A 2023 feature now enables riders to list their ‘top ten’ calls by using a favourites list or the last calls made, and is another added convenience of the advanced setup. The Turn-by-Turn+ empowers the rider to add extra customisation to their navigation details on the go via the bike’s TFT menu, without having to stop and fish around for their mobile device.

Sportier graphics and more dynamic looks (the plastics are colour injected and take inspiration from KTM offroad models, utilising in-mould decals where possible, for extra resistance) comes with other practical additions such as the new aluminum engine and tank protector. Further additions include a handlebar mounted hazard warning switch and PIRELLI SCORPION STR tyres for offroad emphasis.

Kitting out and personalising the KTM 890 ADVENTURE is a breeze with KTM PowerParts; extra protective components, luggage racks and units, GPS and smartphone brackets, heated grips, different seats, and headlight kits are just some of the optional extras available.

2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE Highlights:
// Upgraded ergonomics and bodywork for more protective and comfortable riding
// Low weight, proven race-derived chassis for perfect mix of performance and practicality
// Revised WP Suspension settings and adjusters for more response and travel ‘glide’ experience
// Optimised travel ‘friendliness’ with better TFT menus, app options, reworked Ride Modes, higher screen and more comfortable, versatile 2-piece seat
// More Offroad orientated PIRELLI SCORPION STR tyres
// Two fresh colour options and new racier graphics set

KTM UPDATES ITS 2023 STREET RANGE

KTM introduces new decals and colour updates across the 2023 STREET range, allowing riders to find a machine that matches their true READY TO RACE colours

KTM introduces new decals and colour updates across the 2023 STREET range, allowing riders to find a machine that matches their true READY TO RACE colours.

KTM roars into the new year with a fast-as-ever brace of STREET motorcycles, covering the full spectrum of road-going machines catering to all riders and riding styles.

At the entry point, KTM brings the small but mighty KTM 125 DUKE and KTM 390 DUKE Naked machines out to play. These are flanked by the impressive new generation Supersport weapons in KTM RC 125 and KTM RC 390 guises.

Not to be outdone in the mid-weight class, the KTM 790 DUKE makes a re-appearance, with the KTM 890 DUKE GP bringing extreme attitude, and the KTM 890 DUKE R providing the class muscle.

For 2023, the range is updated with new premium hues taking their inspiration from the vibrant KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE RR prototype and Grand Prix teams.

KTM 790 DUKE
THE ORIGINAL SCALPEL slices back onto the scene as an A2 compatible entry point to the KTM mid-weight range, bringing its razor-sharp handling to the beginner segment. This decision comes off the back of a partnership agreement with Chinese manufacturer, CFMOTO, which sees the 790 cc powerplant continued. This means the 105 hp Naked machine will continue to fill a core gap in the market globally, with a dedicated 95 hp A2 compatible version taking on the streets in Europe.

KTM RC 125 / KTM RC 390
Both models in the KTM RC range receive the KTM GP orange treatment, complete with black exhaust. All 2023 KTM RC models also feature a dark-tinted screen as standard.

KTM 125 DUKE
THE SPAWN OF THE BEAST, the KTM 125 DUKE gets a fresh colour update, introducing a blue-on-white motif, accented by an orange tailpiece and striking orange wheels.

KTM 390 DUKE
The middle-weight CORNER ROCKET receives two new colourway updates: a vibrant orange and blue/grey option, and stealthy black and matt grey hue adding a darker, more sinister shadow to the streets.

KTM 890 DUKE GP
The KTM 890 DUKE GP introduces more black to the fray, with an eye-catching black-on-white colourway, set off by a striking orange subframe and orange wheels.

KTM 2023 LC4 RANGE

OWNING EVERY AVENUE

The KTM 690 ENDURO R and KTM 690 SMC R have been the class-toppers in their respective classes for over a decade. For 2023, that trend continues in typical KTM fashion, fuelled by a true READY TO RACE pedigree.

At the heart of both the KTM 690 ENDURO R and KTM 690 SMC R, lies the most powerful production single-cylinder engine available. With over 30 years of consistent development, the KTM LC4 has slowly morphed from a 553 cc race-spec engine in 1987 to the fully-fledged 693 cc machine it is today.

Not only has the LC4 stood the test of time, but it essentially created a segment unto itself. This has proven to be the ideal baseline for the KTM 690 range, paving the way for two of the most dominating motorcycles to leave the Mattighofen factory.

At the forefront of this powerplay is the KTM 690 ENDURO R. Having been the go-to dual sport machine for many years, it receives a few welcome updates for 2023. Now an even more astute enduro weapon, the KTM 690 ENDURO R offers no compromises when tackling hard enduro-type terrain, and easy, fast-flowing trails.

This is perfectly displayed by Dakar racing expert Xavier de Soultrait in his recent victory at the Transanatolia Rally.“I wanted to challenge myself on the 7-day Transanatolia Rally by racing it with a production machine. The KTM 690 ENDURO R was up to the challenge, and to my surprise, I won the overall bike category. In some sections, I found the KTM 690 ENDURO R was faster than some of my older Rally bikes, with it performing perfectly. The KTM 690 ENDURO R is the ideal weapon for fast-paced and flowing trails, easily capable of holding its own in the Rally world.”

Not to be outdone, the utterly ballistic KTM 690 SMC R has been the slide-king for adrenaline-hunting canyon carvers for decades. Built to be thrashed around twisty mountain roads and tear around race tracks, the KTM 690 SMC R has been the undisputed supermoto king for nearly as long as the wheelies it pulls off.

For 2023, both the KTM 690 ENDURO R and KTM 690 SMC R sport a simple but effective LCD screen providing riders with information like speed, RPM, and an array of essential warning lights. The dashboard's slimline design also means the line of sight forward is clear of any obstructions.

Likewise, both LC4 machines benefit from Cornering ABS, which allows riders to use full braking power in all conditions, even at big lean angles. This is supported by Offroad ABS on the KTM 690 ENDURO R which reduces ABS efficiency on the front wheel but completely disables ABS on the rear, allowing riders to lock up the rear into a tight turn.

Supermoto ABS replaces this feature on the KTM 690 SMC R, which quite literally pulls out all the stops. When activated, ABS is also reduced on the front wheel and completely disabled on the rear, allowing for big drifts into corners and tyre-smoking powerslides out of the apex.

Both machines also receive enhanced CTG and seat treatment, with the KTM 690 ENDURO R taking its styling cues from the competition Enduro range. The KTM 690 SMC R brings an all-new blue and orange adornment to the fray, boosting its overall premium appeal.

Lastly, both machines sport EURO 5-compliant exhaust systems made from precisely engineered high-quality stainless steel. However, thanks in part to KTM’s global networks of dealers, the added availability of dedicated KTM PowerWear and KTM PowerParts have been designed to allow for the highest levels of performance, protection, and mobility.

The latest generation of LC4-powered machines offers versatility with a truly unique riding experience. With each model presenting ideal unique arguments for different riding styles, they bring together a dynamic combination of race-bred performance, ergonomics, and technology ready to truly tackle any terrain.

REVISED, REWORKED AND READY TO RACE

THE KTM RC 8C IS FIRED-UP

Fast and competitive riders spoke and KTM listened. The KTM RC 8C, a purposeful, hand-built, and specific ‘tool’ for the track was created last year. For 2023 the company have reset the dials. The new model has been overhauled and the spec sheet has been held to the grindstone for an even sharper ‘READY TO RACE’ profile.

The second generation of the KTM RC 8C required much more than a fresh coat of paint and a tweak to the aero package. As motorcyclists and racers quickly embraced the concept, KTM once more got excited about raising performance thresholds. The result is that the 2023 version boasts a radically evolved LC8c engine, molded specifically for the circuit, upgraded electronic features, even more weight-saving solutions and a raft of high-end components that ensure the bike’s competitiveness.

Performance, durability, and all-out capability: these were the central priorities for the dedicated KTM R&D crew for the 2023 KTM RC 8C. The increase of 7 hp for maximum power of 135 hp at 11,000 RPM (with torque flushing 98 Nm at 8,250 RPM) was achieved by mods like the installation of new, lighter titanium values and conrods, as well as two piston rings (to refine the oscillating masses), higher compression ratios, a bigger throttle body and a bolstered fuel pump/pressure. Increasing the clutch preload, removing the top balancer, and adjusting the crankcase balancer shaft have delivered durability gains and an additional PANKL oil cooler helps with thermal stability.

The 2023 KTM RC 8C’s dry weight has been optimized to just 142 kg and with the superb agility of the CrMo4 steel frame gives a prototype vibe to successfully attack the inside lines against any superbike. Measures such as the brand-new titanium Akrapovic exhaust system have helped the slimming, but the rapier feel has been augmented by enhanced settings from the very latest configurations of WP PRO COMPONENTS. The WP APEX PRO fork and shock are now softer; elevating comfort, contact and confidence.

Working again with Krämer Motorcycles for fabrication, the 2023 KTM RC 8C is now one of the company’s clearest racing expressions: full of capability and intent. Whether a rider is the next Brad Binder seeking training mileage or the next Red Bull MotoGP rookie on the path to Grand Prix stardom, the refined electronics mean that any setting of traction control, mapping and engine braking can fettle the 2023 KTM RC 8C to match the level of ability (or ambition). The race bike can be primed in a number of ways; from the adjustable steering head to the offset of the CNC-machine triple clamps, the throttle response and degree of bite from the unbeatable Brembo Stylema calipers and RCS19 Corsa Corta master cylinder.

A revamped dashboard with GPS data-logger will flash-up the lap-record attempts while the KTM RC16 derived handlebar switches put the rider’s left thumb in full control while the left foot hammers through the reverse pattern of the race QUICKSHIFTER+.

For the final reminder that the 2023 KTM RC 8C is for racers and born from a company with racing at its very soul, the use of winglets and aerodynamics is a direct correlation to the successful MotoGP™ program where the KTM RC16 has won seven Grands Prix in only six years of presence on the premier class grid. Downforce and efficiency under braking and acceleration are some of the gains. If rivals and observers are quick enough to catch the 2023 iteration of the KTM RC 8C then they can only be impressed by the menacing black shade, which speaks ‘speed’ and ‘exclusivity’. The project in a nutshell.

To get the wheels rolling in the best and quickest way, the official ‘handover’ of the 2023 KTM RC 8C will be toasted with an ultra-special track day for 30 customers at the Circuito Ricardo Tormo in Valencia on April 26th. Select, first-come, first-served places can be secured with former Grand Prix riders offering track tuition and a full KTM and WP Suspension technical crew on hand to dial-in the configuration of the new bike to the 14-corner Grand Prix venue. Accommodation, food, bike transportation logistics from Austria to Spain and then to local dealers is all taken care of. This is the full factory racer experience!

2023 KTM RC 8C technical highlights
// Revised LC8c DOHC inline twin cylinder engine with titanium components and 7 hp performance increase to 135 hp at 11,000 RPM
// Adjustable throttle response, traction/launch/anti-wheelie control and engine braking adjustment

DO YOU DARE?

THE 2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE R BREAKS NEW GROUND

For all those who dare to adventure, the new KTM 890 ADVENTURE R is here to break travel barriers on or off the beaten track. Featuring a host of technical upgrades, this reworked machine enters a new era of rally-inspired aesthetics and performance.

Harnessing attributes of KTM’s pure READY TO RACE legacy, the hyper-focused KTM 890 ADVENTURE R new development aims to further offroad excellence, dependability, and suitability for whatever the road ahead holds. To prove the point, the bike was launched in the diverse topography of western Idaho, USA, in the presence of adventurers attending the 2022 KTM Adventure Rider Rally. The next-level capability and mettle of the reshaped KTM 890 ADVENTURE R came to the fore in the heart of the Idaho mountains.

Taking cues from the KTM 450 RALLY setup, the WP suspension package on the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R, with fully adjustable WP XPLOR forks and a WP XPLOR PDS rear shock, was re-tuned to provide improved feeling to ensure riders reach the end of each stage with reduced fatigue. Further influence from the KTM 450 RALLY is evident in the redesigned bodywork with a new fairing, fuel tank, and cowling, improving aerodynamics and ergonomics, respectively enhancing protection from the elements and the bike’s already phenomenal agility. The fact that the 2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE R is ready for action is also made clear through the new and lower windshield, high front fender and engine protector, for those tricky technical terrains.

The new 5” TFT display — equipped with USB-C connecters — features a completely new appearance with colored pictograms and intuitive graphics that allow for easy navigation through the menus. In addition, the latest upgrades provide a developed turn-by-turn plus navigation system that allows the rider to select the preferred destination out of their last selections. A new call-out function also allows a favorites call option, with a maximum of 10 numbers, or the option to call one of the 10 last numbers called.

To take the software and hardware potential of the electronics suite to new levels, KTM has also included the next generation of ABS control unit that takes readings from the 6D sensor — which continually informs the CMU on the angle, pitch, speed and general behavior of the motorcycle — to apply the correct amount of braking force for any given situation. Riders opting to try the bike’s potential off the beaten tracks can count on OFFROAD ABS as an integrated element of OFFROAD MODE, or the optional RALLY MODE, without the need to select the OFFROAD ABS separately.

When the trail widens and the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R wants to clock the miles, the 2023 edition provides comfort through the single piece seat with is new colors, which still emphasizes mobility and grip. Count on extra wear resistance thanks to the new Mitas ENDURO TRAIL+ tyres combo for the International and European versions. American adventurers can also be seen with LED style indicators to complement the revitalized graphic set for 2023 model.

KTM has taken advantage of the growing electronic capacity of the KTM 890 ADVENTURE R to install a new DEMO MODE, seen for the first time on this 2023 model. The new KTM 890 ADVENTURE R will allow riders to take advantage of all the specs and options for the first 1,500 kilometers, before the rider decides which pack or features to acquire. Thanks to the DEMO MODE setting, adventurers can feel and experience the areas of the bike they prefer, while in the thick of throttle-wringing action.

2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE R – HIGHLIGHTS
// Reworked bodywork & fairing inspired by the KTM 450 RALLY

The 2023 KTM 890 ADVENTURE R pushes extremes a little further while inviting riders from across of the world to #Dare2ADV.

KTM GROWS THE E-MINI RANGE

INTRODUCING THE NEW KTM SX-E 3

Positioning itself at the grassroots level, the KTM SX-E 3 charges into the electric lineup as the ideal starter package for aspirant young riders. With a tailored power output, smaller wheels, and lower seat height, it is the perfect choice for riders still finding their feet – and throttle.

Following its success in the European Junior E-Motocross Championship, the KTM SX-E 5 has become a very viable proposition for young mini-cross racers. With further acclaim given by Freestyle MX legend Robbie Maddison’s sons Kruz and Jagger – not to mention its everyday usability as demonstrated by Zoe Birch when exploring with dad Chris.

These accolades have paved the way for the KTM SX-E 3, taking its position as a true entry-level motorcycle, rather than an electric-powered mini-cycle.

Like the KTM SX-E 5, the KTM SX-E 3 delivers the same high-quality and advanced technology as its more powerful counterpart. Featuring the same chromium molybdenum frame, durable suspension, and advanced lightweight construction, the KTM SX-E 3 retains all the “big bike” attributes, but in more user-friendly packaging.

Powered by the same permanent magnet electric motor in the KTM SX-E 5, the KTM SX-E 3 has an output of 3.8 kW, with the 60 Li-Ion cells providing a capacity of 648 Wh in a low 48 V configuration. This results in approximately two hours of ride time between charges.

Upfront, 35 mm non-adjustable WP XACT USD forks take care of the bumps, providing 144 mm of wheel travel. On the rear, a WP monoshock is mounted directly to the swingarm, offering 133 mm of travel, and is perfectly matched to the front forks.

In keeping with its smaller dimensions, the KTM SX-E 3 is fitted with 10″ black-anodized lightweight aluminum wheels front and rear, wrapped in MAXXIS MX-ST tyres. This complements the stock seat height of 600 mm.

The KTM SX-E 3 also features an adjustable seat height, which can be reduced to 555 mm by lowering the bodywork/seat, mounting the rear shock in an alternative position, and lowering the front fork in the triple clamps. From a safety standpoint, the KTM SX-E 3 is fitted with a roll-over sensor, which will cut power as a result of a crash or drop. This is supported by a wrist-worn lanyard key, which also stops the motor in the event of an unforeseen riding scenario. Additionally, the low noise emissions make the KTM SX-E 3 more accessible to younger riders by being less intimidating and more accepted in areas where noise emissions are restricted.

Keeping the KTM SX-E 3 charged is easy, thanks to an external charger supplying up to 900 W. This can be connected to any 110- or 230-Volt socket and plugs directly into the battery pack for easy charging, with a full charge from empty taking approximately 70 minutes.

THE NEW KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO

CHRIS BIRCH RACES KAILUB RUSSELL TO THE TOP OF THE IRON GIANT ON THE NEW SPECIAL EDITION ENDURO

Solid preparation for a white-knuckled event like the ERZBERGRODEO is often half the battle. It helps by saving crucial time in the paddock and seconds on the course. A racer like Russell knows all about having the most honed and competitive package to fly through speedy sections and stare at some of the gnarliest obstacles while Birch demands nothing less than the finest technical set-up and performance to bounce through the trickiest ‘extreme’ zones. The 2023 KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO has been crafted around the acute attributes of both stars and features race-developed and premium parts. The 2023 model does full justice to the demands and infamy of the meeting through the latest specs.

Performance edge comes through the CNC-machined triple clamps, factory wheels with anodized hubs, a supersprox stealth rear sprocket, a map selector switch and the solid rear brake disc. Don’t forget the competition-specific Metzler 6 Days Extreme tires. Going faster or better also means a heightened degree of risk or punishment to the equipment. This is where the 2023 KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO also raises the bar with a capable handguard set, a radiator protector, chain guard bracket and clutch protector, front and rear brake guards and a rear brake safety wire.

Russell and Birch know that distinction and style cannot be underestimated: look good, feel good. The 2023 KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO is graced with a racing orange frame, a factory Selle Della Valle orange seat and lightweight skid plate and the Erzbergrodeo graphics set that subtly mixes grey with the distinctive KTM hue. The livery also carries some of the markers and checkpoints from the Erzbergrodeo such as the ‘Elevator, ‘Machine’ and ‘Carl’s Diner’.

The 2023 KTM 300 EXC ERZBERGRODEO is a fine instrument of enduro excellence. At the Erzbergrodeo – or any race even for that matter – it is primed for qualification, attacking and forging optimum results.

To aspire to be the best, and ride with the best, you need the best.

2023 KTM 450 SMR

TAKE THE LONG SLIDE TO SUPERIORITY

In a discipline where tenths of a second and tens of centimetres make the difference in a lap-time or an overtaking move, then the precision and the sheer razor-edged intent behind the 2023 KTM 450 SMR is exactly what any Supermoto fan or racer needs.

The innovations start with the refined hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded frame. Front-end focus and sensitivity and rear-end stability defines everything that is fast and strong on the Supermoto circuit. KTM has altered longitudinal and torsional flex (also through frame wall thickness) to make sure that feedback is acute and on-point as any rider – from novice to world championship-level racer – will demand. A revised shock mount enhances energy absorption and straight-line stability for 2023. The ‘anti squat’ concept translates to better acceleration and corner exit and is also achieved courtesy of the repositioning of rotational masses and the new shock itself. The ‘inward’ located footrests augment the feeling that the 2023 KTM 450 SMR can be gripped, carried and pushed however far the rider wants to go. The polyamide reinforced aluminum 2-piece subframe is another ingredient for the overall improved handling effect – with the bonus of superb strength. The flow of contact with the track surface comes spilling through the high-grade aluminum CNC-machined triple clamps, which are newly applied with increased grip surface for less handlebar ‘twist’.

Sliding into turns has never felt easier but the added reassurance comes from expert degree of flex pouring forth from the diecast aluminum swingarm, new 22mm rear axle and the latest generation of WP XACT Suspension. AER 48mm forks have a split-damping function and simple tool-less adjusters among other advantages. The same practicality graces from the new shorter, lighter (but still with the same amount of travel) WP XACT rear shock, which is fully optimized with several significant upgrades to enable advanced damping characteristics. The WP XACT shock is the most progressive and capable system seen on a KTM Supermoto machine yet.

Calculated millimetres on corner entry are made possible with high-powered 4-piston Brembo brakes with a 310mm front disc. A 220mm disc and single piston caliper will bring the rear end around nicely while it’s feted by the SUTER anti-hopping clutch and Brembo hydraulics that will let riders drift all the way ‘til they shift.

Once the Metzeler Racetec SM K1 tyres (with a large usage window and rapid warm-up times) have been abused into the apex, the unmistakable firepower of the 2023 KTM 450 SMR gets everything firing forward. The new SOHC engine is designed with mass centralisation as the goal and blasts out 63 hp – with the motor weighing just under 27 kg, almost half a kilo less than the previous edition. The engine itself has been tilted back and the sprocket dropped by 3mm with new cylinder internals and crankshaft optimisation as other markers of the 2023 set-up. PANKL Racing Systems have supplied a redesigned five-speed gearbox with a new transmission ratio. Another feature is the fresh Quickshift sensor on the shift drum for clutchless upshifts (which can also be disabled through the handlebar switch). The Keihin Engine Management System administers the traction control, launch control and quickshift actions and the ability to flick between two customisable engine maps.

Throwing the whole package into place on-track is now simpler with new ergonomics and the sculpted rider ‘triangle’ that permits even better contact points between motorcycle and user. A recessed grip ‘pocket’ under the seat is another example of the fine-tuned practicality. There won’t be better or harder-looking bike on the track than the 2023 KTM 450 SMR. The 1990s-derived splash of purple adds to the READY TO RACE graphic vibe together with the flat orange seat and white tail.

A very limited number of the 2023 KTM 450 SMR will be available from June 2022.

TOTAL TERRAIN DOMINATION

INTRODUCING THE 2023 KTM ENDURO RANGE

KTM has dominated Enduro competition for a number of decades, with the newest iteration of the 2023 KTM EXC and EXC-F models set to continue the trend. Boasting an updated design, orange-coated Chromoly steel frame, race-proven WP XPLOR suspension at each end, and real READY TO RACE credentials, the 2023 KTM Enduro range is the one to beat.

Offering the most extensive READY TO RACE competition Enduro lineup on the market, starting with the enduro underdog KTM 150 EXC 2-Stroke and topping out with the class-leading power KTM 500 EXC-F 4-Stroke, the 2023 KTM Enduro range caters to all riders and terrains.

New for 2023, an all-new graphic design and white, purple and orange colour scheme come together into a seamlessly blended palette. This colour scheme was specifically chosen by the designers to pay homage to the early ‘90s enduro models, setting the 2023 KTM Enduro range apart from anything else on the trails.

The looks are further emphasised with the use of a race-inspired orange-coated Chromoly steel frame. Not only does this echo the styling on full-factory race machines but provides the perfect backbone to set off the 2023 graphics pack.

In terms of engines, the 2-Stroke model range once again takes its place and is the leader in the paddock, making use of KTM’s patented Transfer Port Injection (TPI) technology. Not only has this ensured fewer emissions and fuel consumption but provides smooth and strong power delivery from the bottom right through to the top end of the rev-range.

The 4-Stroke model range provides the most concise offering of models, starting with the KTM 250 EXC-F and KTM 350 EXC-F and topping out with the powerhouses KTM 450 EXC-F and KTM 500 EXC-F. All models in the 4-Stroke range benefit from class-winning engines, engineered to deliver massive torque down low with class-leading power delivery at higher RPMs.

These are flanked by the ever-popular KTM EXC SIX DAYS range, which offers a special tribute to the upcoming 2022 FIM International Six Days Enduro in France, combining the very latest in innovation with an extensive list of race-derived parts as standard.

Every motorcycle in the range gets fully adjustable WP XPLOR suspension as standard, with the advantage of a Progressive Damping System (PDS) on the rear. The PDS layout – a staple across KTM EXC and EXC-F models, offers lower maintenance due to fewer moving parts, but provides more ground clearance, with less chance of hooking up when climbing logs or rocks.

As always, and thanks to KTM’s global network of dealers, the availability of support and parts needed to compete at the highest level are easily accessible, with the added availability of dedicated KTM PowerWear and KTM PowerParts designed to allow for the highest levels of performance, protection, and mobility for all offroad riders and racers.

The 2023 KTM Enduro range is derived from years at the top level of offroad racing and brings together a dynamic combination of race-bred performance, ergonomics and technology ready to tackle any terrain.

NOTHING HAS CHANGED

GET SERIOUS WITH THE 2023 KTM SX

How do you better dominance?
Like any champion racer we search every single corner for gains, for performance and for perfection The 2023 KTM SXs will reshape the market as well as riders’ expectations. We haven’t changed our approach for outright excellence, so that means we’ve changed quite a bit for 2023.

We still have 12 models that scale from electric learner bikes through to two-stroke minicycles (50, 65, 85cc) to larger two-stroke thrillers at 125, 250 and 300cc capacity. The KTM SX-Fs consist of 250, 350 and 450 four-strokes. A potential AMA 450SX winner or MXGP world champion can grow in orange from his or her first metres on the dirt right up until those last few corners as a winner at the very highest level. So, we have the bikes but why jump into the family? Why embrace the KTM DNA? Well, the KTM SXs are the most powerful in each class and have the finest components. They are the most race focused.

Racing enables us to empower you. The 2023 KTM SXs are sleeker, slimmer, more controllable and the most desirable. They our best expression of the ultimate motocross race so we’re ready for when you want to get really serious.

Behind the gate: Preparation and equipment
We are market leaders with the use of cutting-edge ideas and technology throughout our motorcycle portfolio and the 2023 KTM SXs are primed. Partnerships with companies such as KEIHIN, PANKL, and Brembo means performance possibilities have expanded. The 2023 KTM SX range will count on two maps (one standard, softer and linear power and another for a more aggressive response), launch control*, traction control*, a roll-over sensor for large crashes, an hourmeter as standard with electronic fuel injection status and a fuel indicator through the Keihin engine management system. Other preparatory steps come through the tool-free adjustments now possible with the latest spec WP Suspension engineering. New 7.2 litre polythene fuel tanks can be filled (feeding into the protected one-piece fuel pump and filter) and a quick spin of the Excel alloy wheel rims is quicker and easier to check thanks to the fresh spoke nipple design. You’re READY TO RACE.

Gate-drop and surging into action
Fired up with the electric starter (on all models) KTM SXs hammer along the straight and into the corners and jumps with aplomb. Our engine packages are more compact, more durable, more serviceable and offer the best power-to-weight ratio across the board.

New cylinder heads translates into performance gains but rearwards rotation of the engines by 2 degrees has given better centralization and a more profound effect for the chassis concept. Brand new 5-speed PANKL Racing Systems transmissions with an additional sensor for the four-strokes mean that up-shifts (from 2nd gear onwards) are slicker thanks to the Quickshifter function. The Quickshifter can be disabled with a switch on the handlebar but a weight-optimised shift shaft in the transmission itself means that the operating force of the change is now less and, therefore, easier. A Brembo hydraulic clutch ensures top-of-the-range dependability whatever the conditions.

With our 2-strokes, less carbs = more muscle. We’ve graced our KTM SXs with a new electronic fuel injection to ensure simplicity, enjoyment and uniqueness. Therefore, the SXs get a new 39mm throttle body with injectors positioned for pinpoint response. A ‘remix to the premix’ counts on a TPS-sensor for better behavior while idle and for the fuel-air mixture (not forgetting the cold start mechanism which is the same as the KTM SX-Fs). The effect is more: more power, more response, more assurance, more ease, more fun.

Finding the flow then attack the track
The demands of competition, fitness and the track set the tone for any moto. It’s in the depths of this hard, physical stage of a race when the connection and feeling with any motorcycle can make the difference and fully harness the excitement and fulfilment. We’ve taken our chassis and frame design principles back to the core and have sought better dynamics, stability and strength. Longitudinal rigidity is a key phrase and with accentuated rider feeling coming through an anti-squat philosophy. This has been achieved by a new frame and mounts, subframe, swingarm, engine repositioning, ergonomics and WP Suspension tech.

The frame is hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded. the wall thickness has been optimised to achieve improved rigidity in specific high stress areas such as the steering head and all new shock mounts. The KTM SX two-strokes have new parallel frame mounts. The design is sportier with sights on extra agility; an example comes through the new inwardly moved footpegs for even greater clearance in ruts and for dropping the bike flat for scrubs. New footpegs are even larger in surface area, even if the die casting means they are lighter than before. Stiffness has been dialed with lighter die cast hollow swingarms (new casting processes allow for even more weight saving) and a new rear axle.

The WP Suspension XACT shock is shorter and lighter. The internal flow of liquids is more flush, reliable and resistant, and the shock’s smaller dimensions lower the chances of pollutants and dirt intrusion. The shape permits higher ground clearance with the linkage and advanced damping means better traction as the bike swallows the bumps with the new geometry setting. Entering corners or landing jumps, any KTM SX can take full profit from WP XACT forks with AER air technology featuring a new hydrostop for more effective performance and more bottoming resistance.

The 2023 KTM SXs are narrower and honed, but we have managed to increase contact area and surfaces to allow even more input into the handling of the bike. The flat orange seat – offering excellent grip and  greater control – and the reworked front fender are other identifiable marks. The mud flaps of the fender prevents excessive dirt being flicked up towards the rider and the radiator in particularly wet conditions.

Finishing the moto strong
You’ve gone faster and longer than ever, but any Pro racer will tell you that the last two or three laps of any moto are key. This is where the versatility and usability of the new KTM SXs are further fortes. The rate of energy absorption is high thanks to the forgiving chassis and other components such as the fresh CNC milled triple clamps with optimised bar mounts and wider grip surface area. This leads to less handlebar twist. The whole unit is protected by a new number plate design. The subframe is now a finely engineered hybrid thanks to polyamide reinforced aluminum, applying strength into the lower part of the frame and extending flexibility for control and comfort in upper sections. The subframe has been designed with advanced finite element analysis and weighs less than two kilos.

Count on the last centimetres of traction and performance provided by the Dunlop GEOMAX MX33 tires; chosen for the 2023 KTM SX line-up after a careful testing and selection process.

Once across the finish line it will be time to recover, to reset and to think about the next outing. At this point riders will consider mods and this is when accompanying KTM PowerParts and KTM PowerWear will have you covered. Riding gear, protection, extra parts and much more can be found and have been especially crafted for our 2023 KTM SX incarnations.

Welcome to the future. But don’t just take our word for it, watch out for a very special and exclusive video series on KTM digital channels to further breakdown the 2023 KTM SX range.

2022 KTM 890 DUKE R

THE SUPER SCALPEL GETS A SHARP NEW LOOK

Having been around since 2020, the KTM 890 DUKE R has proven itself to be the undisputed champion in the middleweight segment. Boasting an impressive 121 HP and 99 Nm of torque, it represents as a serious option for race-centric riders looking for agility, punch, and poise.

The KTM 890 DUKE R is dubbed THE SUPER SCALPEL on account of its lightning-fast steering geometry. Thanks to the load-bearing design of its tubular steel chassis and adjustable WP APEX suspension, it remains a no-compromise middleweight naked bike, equally at home on twisty mountain passes as it is on the racetrack, delivering more power, more torque, and more intense asphalt-carving agility than any other parallel twin in the segment.

While its forward momentum and agility are exemplary, the KTM 890 DUKE R also excels when slowing down. Front monoblock Brembo Stylema calipers grabbing meaty 320 mm discs on the front, along with an adjustable Brembo MCS master cylinder, mean that THE SUPER SCALPEL stops as quickly and precisely as it attacks apexes. A set of sticky Michelin Power Cup 2 tyres provides reliable grip on all asphalt surfaces in all weather conditions.

In terms of electronic wizardry, the KTM 890 DUKE R makes use of Cornering ABS and Cornering MTC (motorcycle traction control) with a 6D lean angle sensor that not only detects the side-to-side (roll) and forwards and backward (pitch) movements of the bike, but also the rotation of the bike on its vertical axis (yaw). This translates into comprehensive traction control management, accomplished by the use of a wheel slip control sensor and a pitch angle control sensor.

A selection of ride modes—namely RAIN, STREET, SPORT, and optional TRACK mode—ensure full rider customisation, nine levels of adjustable traction control slip, anti-wheelie on/off, and the additional throttle control setting.

The biggest difference is obvious: the KTM 890 DUKE R now features a premium hue of matt paint. Called ‘Atlantic Blue’, the color is reminiscent of the palate used on the KTM RC16 GP racer and recently the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, adding to THE SUPER SCALPEL’s READY TO RACE demeanor. Typical of all KTM ‘R’ models, the signature orange frame continues to provide the perfect contrast of colors while strengthening the READY TO RACE presence.

With its new look to match its performance and character, the KTM 890 DUKE R once again promises to be a track-ready machine you’ll want to ride every day.

As always, a full range of specially created KTM PowerParts has been developed to personalize and further intensify your ride. A range of KTM PowerWear ensures the rider gets the most out of themselves and boosts their READY TO RACE performance.
