Chester KTM has released a very limited edition KTM 890 Adventure that harks back to the golden era of the Dakar Rally.

The unique livery has been designed with Manchester based graphic specialists FMG to create a homage to the original 990 Super Adventure from 2008.

Fraser Barsby, Head of Marketing at the Little Stanney showroom, was instrumental in its creation, he said: “For me especially, this iconic bike has always stirred my more adventurous emotions.

“At the time I was driving and filming a number of expeditions around the Sahara in my Land Rover Defender and a day wouldn’t pass that I dreamed of how amazing the routes I was driving would be on the back of a bike.

“The Long Way Round was still fresh in my mind and the dunes were filled with dirty bikers with sandy smiles and oil under their fingernails.”

More than a decade later, and in what he describes as his “dream job” Barsby couldn’t resist the chance to re-visit his dream and share it with like-minded “dune-hooligans”.

This bike is exclusive to Chester KTM and only five will be available, with one already pre-sold and another in Barsby’s garage.

The bike comes complete with heavy duty hand guards, a one-piece seat and the full graphics kit for £10,999. The price also includes the full tech pack costing over £750.
