When KTM debuted its 890cc ADV lineup – with the KTM 890 Adventure R and KTM Adventure R Rally – the Austrian manufacturer left out one key detail about the bikes: their price.
Luckily, our Bothan spies are always hard at work, and they have passed along to us the pricing information for the American market. As such, we have some good news for you.
Even with the extra power and updates that come with the 890 platform, their prices reflect only a modest increase over their 790 counterparts. Accordingly, tentative MSRP pricing for the USA is as follows:
- 2021 KTM 890 Adventure R Rally: $19,999
- 2021 KTM 890 Adventure R: $14,199
- 2021 KTM 890 Adventure: $13,099
Oh…you noticed that last price there, did you? Yup, it looks like a base model KTM 890 Adventure is on the way for 2021 as well, and judging from that arrival, and these leaked prices, we can expect to see the 790 ADV platform phased out from the US market.
If that is true, then it means a $500 increase for all three 890cc models over their 790 counterparts, which is certainly a small price to pay for the added capabilities of the 890 ADV motorcycle.
However, it does hurt a little KTM’s price competitiveness against other manufacturers, especially as the Yamaha Ténéré 700 line is finally in the USA (and destined to grow with more variations), and the rumors of a baby Africa Twin from Honda heat up.
Also, we still expect to see a production version of the Husqvarna Norden 901 to debut in the coming weeks.
Where it will fall on the price continuum remains to be seen, though if we had to guess it would north of $15,000 – filling in the gap between the R and R Rally models from KTM. Stay tuned for information on that, as we get it.
