After much speculation, KTM North America has released pricing for the full 2019 street lineup including the 790 Adventure and 790 Adventure R. We got our sweaty hands on an official price sheet and have broken down the numbers below.
Base prices before any options, dealer fees, and freight are as follows:
2019 Adventure (White or Orange): $12,499
2019 Adventure R: $13,499
Other notable pricing for 2019:
690 Enduro R: $11,699
1090 Adventure R: $14,999
1290 Super Adventure R: $18,499
It's no surprise to most that the 790 Adventure R price ended up landing just between the 1090 Adventure R ($1,500 Less) and the new 690 Enduro R ($1,800 More). We are still left wondering if this isn’t a bit steep for a bike that doesn’t even have a hydraulic clutch? Also, keep in mind the base price of $13,499 doesn’t include factory options like cruise control and heated grips among others.
Will this deter anyone? We’re not sure, but we highly doubt it.
Our inkling is that this bike will be worth every penny in the dirt mostly due to the advanced suspension, sophisticated electronics, and ideal fuel range right off the dealership floor.
Costs that will compound the MSRP:
These are the numbers that you might want to keep out of the conversation with your significant other if applicable...
Destination charge of $550
Pre-delivery setup fee of $400
And of course Taxes, Title, Registration, and Licensing cost depending on your location.
When will it be available?
(The essential question)
The tentative delivery date for the first 790 Adventure R's in North America is early May, and that is subject to change, but we are hopefully optimistic.
If your heart is set on one and you aren't already on a waiting list, we wholeheartedly encourage you to call your local dealer.
Another major concern that we have yet to get a concrete answer on is availability. We have heard from some sources that most dealerships will only get one or two units this spring with the rest following in the fall.
