What’s new in the 2023 KTM 890 Adventure?
In terms of overall design, the bike has retained the shape and other elements from the outgoing version. The bike retains its stall stance as well as ADV posture. The headlights now get a regular look while the screen design has also been made more conventional. The front and side fairings now look like they are designed together rather than two different pieces. The wind deflector is more vertical and aims to reduce air buffeting. KTM has also provided a new guard made of alloy to protect the engine and fuel tank from impacts.

While the frame of the bike is not new, the bike gets new 43mm WP Apex USD forks at the front. The rear features a WP Apex monoshock. Braking duties are handled by the same disc brakes on both ends. Both the rims get a wire-spoke design and are fitted with Pirelli Rally STR tyres. The front ones are 12-inchers while the rear ones are 18-inch in size.
