And typical of KTM, there’s no pointless body work or accessories, which keeps weight down. That makes the 790 agile and manageable on tough roads and particularly on punishing surfaces like sand and dirt. Plus, there’s excessive-end tech like traction control and a coloration dash. KTM also takes endurance testing for its engines to extremes: forty eight testers working on dynamometers for 180 hours nonstop, they say).
