    Did the physical dimensions of the bike and engine change at all? It would seem that pretty much every single accessory would fit, and parts and bolts are probably gonna be mostly interchangeable.

    Guys, just because the name and the engine changed drastically doesn’t mean the rest has changed drastically too.
    KTM is very cost sensitive so they had plan to reuse the 790 with a new (bigger, E5 compliant) engine and call it 890.
    They want to sell their power parts to 790 and 890 alike without having to invest in changes again.

    So rest assured that there will be plenty of third party parts that are still coming and can be used on both 790 and 890.

    I don't know. The frame may well be different parts. We won't know exactly until people get their hands on it. As I said in my post there would certainly be some cross-over.

    Parts will likely fit. Just like they do from the 1190->1090->1290. Sure, some internal changes were made on the motor but not like they changed anything major outside of that and a brake line or whatever. Standard Austrian update. These guys do this every 2-3 years. Just look at their many iterations their LC8 has gone through in 10 years. :)

    They said today that the motorcycle is Euro5 compliant due to the cat and the ecm mods. From those statements, I would conclude that the 2021 790 Adventure will have similar mods and also be Euro5 compliant.

    If that is the strategy, there will be NO changes to the frame geometry and the parts will be interchangeable. Another clue is the head angle is the same, the ride height and suspension parts are the same.

    Compression was increased, along with bore and stroke, therefore increased inertia is required to rotate the engine between power strokes.

    There will be no more 790, but rest assured, it is essentially the same motorcycle with a reworked piston and cylinder, and a few bolt on parts.

    And they are all gone.

    I was just contacted by my dealer to confirm the pre-order and regarding the deposit. Looking forward to it.

    Have you had any reliability issues?

    They have not announced a 890 Adventure. Only a R and a R Rally. Wouldn't the standard 790 Adventure still be in production?

    There was well over 100 yesterday. Oh well. If it's like the 790R to 790 rally then the differences aren't that much between them.

    It's interesting that for the same money, you can buy a Poskitt built 690 Rally, or even a fully on used Dakar bike if you want to drop to 450cc. In fact the latter will leave you with plenty of change for repairs.

    Anyhow. Very curious to see the published weights. MCN says 15lbs heavier. Doesn't really make sense though. A UK publication would not talk in pounds, they would speak in KGs.

    What I've heard is that the standard model 890 will be released in the next week or so

    Why are people naging about reliability? I have my 5th KTM and give them a lot of shit and no problems.
    My current 300 exc has 200h on it. second piston. Thinking about giving her a third one for christmas ;-)
    My 990 has now 80.000 km and I only stranded one in Greece. Because my mechanik made a mistake during servicing. Since then I service it myself and never had any problems.
    My third KTM currently is an old 2003 125 motocross bike. With a glued engine case because it hit a rock. The bike doesn‘t care runs fine. A 17 year old motocross

    So maybe I got lucky with all my biles or what I rather belive is that there a few people who had bad experiences and are loudly complaining in the forums. Giving the impression the there are issues with KTM

    front master cylinder has a different part # than the 790 . 790 master has been superseded to the 890 master . i think its because the master cylinder piston for the 790 has been superseded .

    I hear speculation there was a part number change on the 790, but the documentation doesn't support that.

    Here's screen grabs of the KTM parts lists. Both 790 and 890 show the same number, and that's the same number as delivered on my May 2019 bike.

    63513001033

    Do you have the new part number, and where is it listed ?
