Although light weight will clearly be important, KTM hasn't sacrificed practicality. The large pillion rails and rear luggage rack suggest that the usual adventure-style side and top cases will be available as options. Every prototype spotted so far has also had a center stand, too. In terms of tech, KTM takes electronics seriously and is usually at the forefront with the latest Bosch kit. Cornering ABS and traction control are likely, and suspension subsidiary WP already has a range of electronically-adjustable, semi-active kit in its arsenal. From the look of the prototype, the project is well advanced so it will be no surprise if the KTM 790 Adventure makes its debut in late 2017, alongside a similarly-powered 790 Duke looking much like the prototype version shown last month.
