GL Ambassador Paolo Cattaneo wrote this amazing article about his road trip from Austria to Greece to test the new KTM 890 Adventure

“A couple of weeks ago, I got invited by KTM to take one of their new 890 Adventures for a road trip. Their project involved me and another traveler testing their new middleweight motorcycles for a week. We rode from Austria, through Italy, and finally to Greece on a trip that covered almost 3000 km and saw us riding through some of the most iconic places the Italian peninsula has to offer…”

“The KTM 890 Adventure overall was an incredible surprise for me. I decided to name it ‘The Claw’ as it can be a really smooth and pleasurable machine to ride, but also can pull its ferociousness out in an instant and give you ‘ready-to-race’ sensations in line with the KTM philosophy. It will be tough to go back to my old 1190 Adventure now!”

“I added a Giant Loop Zigzag Handlebar Bag, which was sufficient to carry my phone charger, sunglasses and whatever I needed on the go.” — GL Ambassador Paolo Cattaneo
