New model of KTM 790 Adventure will use Avon tyres

The anticipated KTM 790 Adventure that was disclosed officially at Eicma 2018 will have Avon TrailRider Dual Sport tyres fitted as standard. The KTM's 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spoked wheels can have British firm's sport touring rubber.

"We are very proud to be OE for the new disclosed KTM 790 adventure," told Avon's global Head of motorbike Sales, Doug Ross. "The TrailRider has been designed to deliver assuring grip and handling – and options Avon’s acclaimed 3D sipes to fine-tune tread flex, improve warm-up times, and stabilise the tread blocks under load."

Avon launched the TrailRider adventure tyre to supply better wet weather performance than its predecessor without reducing its longevity. It replaced the Avon Distanzia and is offered in sizes for the foremost common adventure bikes. The Trailrider uses a silica-rich compound to enhance the wet grip. The rear tyre is multi-compound, with softer edges for improved grip and a harder central band for longevity.
