KTM 990 Adventure Rally spotted testing

- Multiple 990 Adventure test bikes spotted

- Likely to be launched next year

- Could be introduced in India as well

KTM has been testing multiple new bikes and we have already seen the spy shots for those over the last month. Now, new spy images of what appears to be a KTM 990 Adventure Rally have also surfaced on the web.

KTM last manufactured the 990 Adventure back in 2013 and since then, the platform has been dormant. But with the Austrian bikemaker revamping its Adventure line, it makes sense to reintroduce the 990 as well. Moreover, multiple brands like Triumph, Ducati, Honda, and Suzuki too have recently debuted their late 800-900cc ADV bikes. So, to keep up with the competition is all the more reason for KTM to bring back the 990 Adventure.

The one we see here is the Rally model which is more off-road oriented. Hence, the test mule is equipped with split-side fuel tanks and even sports a new cooling system with a radiator fan on each side. Further, the 990 Adventure Rally test bikes also feature a new front profile. The portion houses a new single projector LED light in the centre flanked by the LED DRLs below and the turn indicators above.

KTM will equip the 990 Adventure Rally with a vertical TFT screen and more electronics like ride modes, traction control, ABS modes, smartphone connectivity, and more.

Compared to the existing 890 Adventure R Rally, the 990 not only gets a completely different bodywork but also a revised subframe. It is suspended on USD front forks, likely adjustable and a monoshock. The brakes are mounted on probable 21-inch front and 17-inch rear cross-spoke wheels wrapped in block pattern tyres.

Interestingly, KTM has also teased an AMT for its 1390 range. The brand is working on bringing its large-capacity bikes to India which could happen in 2025.
