British brand Avon Tyres is the original equipment (OE) fitment for the KTM 790 Adventure, recently launched at EICMA 2018 in Milan.

As a lightweight, high performance bike, the KTM 790 Adventure has spoked wheels in true off-road sizes. With a 21-inch front wheel and 18-inch rear, these come fitted with Avon TrailRider tyres – a dual sport option.

Avon says its TrailRider adventure sport touring tyre provides extra mileage, stability and grip in all weather conditions on all surfaces and features the latest in carcass construction technology along with Avon’s tri-compound tread, which provides a softer compound on the tread edge for more grip, a harder centre compound for mileage, and a low-hysteresis bonding compound under the surface tread.

“We are extremely proud to be OE for the newly unveiled KTM 790 Adventure,” said Doug Ross, Global Head of Motorcycle Sales at Avon Tyres. “The TrailRider has been designed to deliver reassuring grip and handling, and features Avon’s acclaimed 3D sipes to fine-tune tread flex, improve warm-up times, and stabilise the tread blocks under load.”
