JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM is showcasing its legendary Paris-Dakkar Rally motorcycles at the Kemayoran Jakarta Fair (PRJ) arena.

"We present the KTM 790 Duke and KTM 790 Adventure which have won the Paris-Dakar Rally more than 15 times in a row," said President Director of official KTM distributor in Indonesia PT Penta Jaya Laju Motor (PLJM) Kristianto Goenadi at the PRJ arena, Monday night , (6/24/2019).

Previously KTM (Kronreif Trunkenpolz Mattighofen) had introduced these two motorbikes in an international event at the Italian EICMA-Milan Motorcycle Show.

KTM, which has a characteristic "trellis" for two publicly introduced series in Jakarta, has a different designation, the Duke KTM 790 for the motorbike (sport) and KTM 790 Adventure for the two-field motorbike (off road and highway).

Kristianto explained that the KTM 790 has a liquid-cooled compact 799cc twin engine capable of producing 105 hp and 86 Nm of torque.

This motorcycle is also designed not to lock when sharp declines, or experience hard pressure by slightly removing the clutch pressure, he explained.

He said that the weight of the motorcycle is also light for its class, because it uses a thinner and compact iron molybdenum frame.

Kristianto explained that the two motorbikes were not only introduced to the public in Jakarta but would also be sold at prices above Rp. 300 million for the Indonesian market.

"Both of these motorbikes are compatible with the climate in Indonesia, and have been tested for tight off-road lines without any problems," Kristianto explained.

The presence of the motorbike winner of the Paris Dakar Rally attracted the interest of visitors to the PRJ arena so that the number 7 booth it occupied was crowded with visitors.
