Last Friday, we celebrated our 122nd Independence day and KTM Asia Motorcycle Manufacturing Inc. (KAMMI) had made a big announcement on their social media site to showcase Filipino pride. KTM virtually launched its new lineup of big bikes with the KTM 790 Adventure and 790 Duke motorcycles which are now proudly Filipino made. With that announcement also comes a very attractive price drop. Owning a KTM big bike now is no longer too much of a far reach now that they are being manufactured in KAMMI’s assembly plant in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
The virtual launch was led by Dino Santos, president of Adventure Cycle Philipines Inc., the official distributor of KTM motorcycles in the Philippines who formally introduced the 790 Adventure in both Standard and R variants, as well as the more street-oriented 790 Duke.
As we celebrate our Independence Day, KTM Asia Motorcycle Manufacturing Inc. (KAMMI) makes history as the first in Asia to start producing 800cc parallel-twin platform motorcycles for the Filipinos and the ASEAN market.
Both the KTM 790 Adventure and 790 Duke share the same 799 cc LC8c parallel-twin engine, 790 Duke’s engine has been tuned to deliver 105 hp and 82.3 Nm of torque while the 790 Adventure churns out 99 hp and 88 Nm of torque fit more for adventure riding. The 790 Adventure Standard variant is now priced at P699,000 (from P883,000), while the 790 Adventure R is now priced at P749,000 (from P957,000). Meanwhile, the 790 Duke is now priced at P599,000 (from P820). With a significant price drop with these motorcycles, a huge spike of interest should without a doubt, follow these new KTM bikes.
