990 ADVENTURE: POWERFUL, STATE-OF-THE-ART V2Back to Bikes Next Benefit
The 990 Adventure's water-cooled V-engine produces 85 kW (114 hp) – precisely the power you need on fast highways or in deep sand. The engine impresses with powerful acceleration, superb performance and spontaneous throttle response.
Aside from optimum combustion chamber design, the major factors behind the outstanding performance of the 990 Adventure's V-twin with 75° cylinder angle are the state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder heads, each with flow-optimized ports and two overhead camshafts.
CRANK DRIVE / PISTONS
Particularly lightweight pistons and connecting rods bestow the 990 Adventure's V2 engine with reduced reciprocating weight and hence a decidedly spontaneous responsiveness, underlining its extremely sporty engine characteristics.
The electronic Keihin engine management system regulates the modern fuel injection system on the 990 Adventure, focusing on smooth throttle response under partial load or spontaneous responsiveness when needed. In this way, KTM engineers were able to harmonize raw power with optimum rideability.
