NOTE: The GREY colored intakes have sold out of our first and second batch currently. The third wave of GREY intake systems will be shipping in mid February.
Nearly a year of design and development has been poured into our new intake system and we could not be more proud to bring you the next-level quality, fit, and finish that this intake system exudes. The Rottweiler Performance 790/890 Adventure Intake System is a shining example of our commitment to being the best at what we do and our dedication to innovation for big KTMs exudes from every aspect of this next level system.
For starters, we designed the 790/890 intake to act as one large velocity stack smoothly leading the intake charge right into your two OEM stacks. The result is a massive increase in unlocked horsepower and smooth delivery Rottweiler Performance has been known for. What are the gains? Hold on to your Powerparts seat, dyno testing on our bone stock 790 Adventure test bike simply installing the system with no additional mapping the gains over stock to the rear tire were over 10 horsepower at 6300 RPM, right where you ride the bike! (See additional pics for dyno charts)
As usual, we didn't stop there with the improvements. The stock air box once again fails the white glove tests in spectacular fashion and is prone to multiple sealing issues leading to worn valves, valve seats, cylinder walls and eventually possible engine failure. World renown for their for quality craftsmanship and class leading filtration capabilities, we contracted none other than Twin Air Filters to construct the foam element for our new intake system, leveraging their stellar reputation as OEM standard on all of KTM's enduro series motorcycles. This means you are getting the best of both worlds: Rottweiler design mated with Twin Air's quality. An unbeatable package.
As a bonus the filters are now packable using a standard removable filter cage design and with up to 6 spares fitting in the 790/890 Adventure's side pods, you'll never feel that your engine isn't being properly protected on those long off road adventures.

MAPPING INFORMATION For those of you who would like to know more about mapping the 790 and 890 engines, we have provided the information below to help you understand the options for that bike in terms of controlling the fuel. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call us. We are happy to help!
Do I need to remap with a Power Commander for this intake system? Absolutely not. The gains mentioned above were completely stock and the factory ECU easily compensates the fuel using the stock narrow band O2's to keep your air fuel ratio at a safe 14.7. Hours of dyno testing, real world data logging and static load runs showed that the stock ECU safely, easily and quickly adjusts to any configuration with protective measures like ion knock sensors and other methods. You are completely safe to install this air box and enjoy the ride.
So I'm safe, but are there more gains with additional mapping using a Power Commander V? Absolutely, and we have been burning the midnight oil to bring you even more mapping to support your desired combinations than ever before. Simply choose the map that is closest to your final configuration and we will load the map(s) for you for free! For more information on the benefits of mapping please see our mapping options section below.

I have had the power plate on my 790 and switching to this definitely seems like an improvement over both the stock airbox and the powerplate from a performance perspective. Substantially more filter surface area and swapping the filter will be a lot easier. Once complete - the install is clean and looks really great - in many ways making access to some areas of the bike easier, as this is overall smaller. If you are familiar with other Rotty intakes, the level of effort to get this installed shouldn't be new to you - but it took me about a full days worth of time to get it installed. There were some minor mounting alignment issues which required expanding the holes in the bottom of the splashguard, but otherwise everything went together as described, but took a bit more effort as I wasn't nearly as practiced as the guy in the video. However, when I took the bike out to try this out - it was all worth it - while I felt like I had lost some pep with the power plate install, it was back after this install (I wouldn't argue with the +10hp claimed - butt dyno definitely suggested an improvement)
