KTM has announced the 2024 890 Adventure R Rally, the high-specification adventure bike from the Dakar-winning manufacturer is available to pre-order on September 20 with just 700 bikes available of this prized model and an exclusive desert rally experience.
The most capable adventure bike in KTM’s model line-up, with the best configuration of engine and capacity in a chassis equipped with high-specification suspension – KTM’s Adventure R Rally is the bike you really need if you are serious about the off-road part of adventure riding.

With only 700 units available worldwide, the R Rally has an online registration system to give global customers an equal chance at getting their hands on the exclusive model. Add in there a chance to go on a three-day riding trip to the Merzouga desert and ride the desert terrain where the KTM Factory Rally team tests and trains for good measure.

This is the KTM’s adventure model which aims at the rider who really does want to go off-road, take on the types of terrain you see in the images and genuinely do it for real (rather than have all the gear and, well, less of an idea).

It hasn’t changed much for the 2024 model from what we can see but, sitting at the top of the Adventure model range (in our view), the 890 R RALLY model boasts plenty to get your ADV juices flowing.

That includes high-spec suspension componentry with the WP XPLOR PRO 7548 fork system using Cone Valve technology combined with the WP XPLOR PRO 6746 shock absorber, that are both from the WP Pro Components catalogue and fully adjustable for a wide range of terrain and riders.

With WP’s experience from rally competition, this premium kit offers a high level of damping performance, the rider feeling to push more over obstacles, while maintaining a comfort and control. It’s manually adjustable, just like a competition bike kit, and has none of the electronic aids you will find on other KTM Adventure bikes.
