KTM has developed a new rear brake line which comprises a longer metal fitting and is claimed to have improved heat transfer. The company also added that it is important to change the round head Torx screw over the the rear brake lever.

The company is sending alerts to all the affected customers by mail. The owners are requested to carry the letter when visiting an authorized KTM service centre for the replacement of the affected parts.

Both the 790 Adventure and the 790 Adventure R run on the same 799 cc LC8c parallel twin engine. For the record, it is the same engine as found on the KTM 790 Duke. But, the engine has obviously been tweaked in order to fit the character of the adventure bike. While the engine originally produces nearly 103 PS in the 790 Duke, in its revised form the same unit is claimed to churn out 95 PS in the ADV.
