Today, I was at Rottweiler and saw Chris, the owner, test fitting the 790 Adventure Intake from his race bike in a 890 Duke R. This is just the first step, and it will need to be adapted to the 790/890 Dukes. Still, I’m pretty stoked. He said it gains power across the rpm range but gives an honest 7 hp in the midrange. If it’s like the adventure version, there will be both plastic and carbon fiber versions. Very cool!

A note for EU guys. There is a strong chance that if the foam is visible from the outside - it will fail an EU MoT. Esp EU5 (890's)
You'd want to add some wire mesh/grill in the side openings at least. Unless of course RW has that in hand. Their ADV kit has an outer airbox shell which hides the foam.

I say this from experience - It is TYPICALLY classed as a POWER ENHANCEMENT mod (and twould also seem to be one in this case).
Here in Spain - I have seen bikes fail for having a K&N or UNI fitted. Even - and this is laughable - bikes that were made/sold with open bellmouths.

I also remember reading about a similar kit on the German speaking forum. And that had created issues for owners because the filter could be seen.

Looking forward to seeing the results on the 790 Duke, hopefully they will do dyno runs with and without mapping.

There was a chap on one of the German forums playing around with intakes on the 790 and he got some pretty impressive gains.

Anyon tried this Rottweiler Performance Power Plate - KTM 790/890 Duke ?



Guess a light version of the one shown in first post. Does it require remapping/PCV to get any gain and avoid running to lean?
I have a similar thing that comes with the COOBER piggyback ECU box. After some comparison runs - I refitted the OEM cover. It may on paper achieve "something" - but for my riding it actually felt worse. The OEM airbox is a complex Helmholz design and the open tops screw with it. It will makes things seem better in one place - but also affects other areas.

A similar effect can be obtained for free - if you want to try.

OK, very useful info, thanks (y)Every time buy a bike I promise not to spend money on tuning, it's good enough like it is. But always end up with airfilter system, slip-on and dyno job :cautious: We'll see, better do some riding first at least, "if it works, don't fix it" is often a good rule.
