KTM 990 Adventure

The KTM 990 Adventure is a dual-sport motorcycle produced in Austria by KTM. The bike is powered by the LC8 liquid cooled, four-stroke, DOHC 999 cc 75° V-twin engine,[1] producing around 78 kW (105 hp). It is capable of a top speed of around 123 mph (198 km/h).[2] The engine was evolved from the 950 Adventure. The bore and stroke were increased from 100 mm × 60 mm (3.94 by 2.36 inches) to 101.0 mm × 62.4 mm (3.98 by 2.46 inches).[3] The engine also featured a revised camshaft and the carburetor was replaced with the electronic fuel injection. Brakes are Brembo two-channel ABS, except the S and the R versions which have no ABS.
