Rottweiler Performance - Rally Edition Intake System - MATTE Finish - 790/890 ADV & 901 NORDEN


Product Description


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. Add one spare in the option sets on this page or follow the links in the spare parts options below. 



  • Real carbon fiber construction with matte finish (Think Akrapovic quality fit and finish)
  • Drop in 10+ HP at 6300 RPM safely with no mapping.
  • Further gains with custom mapping (See below)
  • Race tested at professional level Rallies
  • 1.7 lb. (.77kg) weight reduction
  • Included Tri layer Filter is supplied DRY
  • Temp sensor is strategically placed to be hidden and better protected from seat damage
  • Packable and replaceable main tri layer filter with removable cage just like a dirt bike. Carry 6 or more in your side pods or pack for long trips
  • Over 20 free maps to support a Power Commander V if chosen below

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? 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. 

What's the difference between STREET and RACE maps?

  • STREET map will allow the user to keep their stock narrow band O2 sensors plugged in and does not interfere with emissions based mapping and only has fueling changes in the open loop section of your fuel map where the stock ECU will not try and override the changes. This serves riders wanting to stay in compliance with emissions standards and retain their cruise control while still benefitting from ignition advances throughout and fueling corrections in open loop. 
  • RACE map is designed for closed course racing purposes so that the user can have full control over the entire map range. The use of maps designated as 'RACE MAPS' require the stock narrow band O2s to simply be unplugged so that the stock ECU will not be able to read them and override the map and correct the trims back to an emissions based 14.7 air fuel ratio in the closed loop section (see attached chart in the pics above). Unplugging the stock narrow band O2s will only cause cruise control on the 790 Adventure will stop working and an engine light on the dash will appear. Engine lights typically only warn of blinkers not working or emissions systems unplugged. You will still get important warnings on the dashboard in bold letters. This can be easily reversed if the stock narrow band O2s are plugged back in. 

What is the difference between MODERATE and ADVANCED maps?

  • Moderate ignition advances are just that. They are designed to be a bit of a bump in power without pushing the limits. What we have found is that KTM typically ships some street homologated bikes with very mild ignition curves. We assume that this is because they cannot predict what kind of fuels will be available to the customer in their given part of the world and the engines can easily take some more ignition advance and take advantage of some extra power.
  • Advanced ignition curves are created using standard U.S. 91 octane rated pump gas fuel, the close equivalent to 95 RON. The ignition advances in these maps have been taken as far as safely possible using sophisticated knock sensing equipment. These maps will usually yield even more hidden horsepower but it is recommended that the user only run a minimum 91 octane fuel (95 RON) or equivalent. These maps DO NOT require race gas. It is recommended to use these maps in conjunction with a Dynojet Map Switch and another map with the same configuration but milder ignition advances so that the user can dial back the advance with the flick of a switch in such a case that lower octane fuel is necessary or ends up in the fuel tank. It should also be known that the 790/890 Adventure models do have knock sensors in the coils, which in the case of accidental lower octane fuel the bike will handily adjust and protect itself.

  1. Hold on very tight (RP Matte) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2022

    I was not prepared for the power, sound and feel of the bike after this was installed, I have a decat + akra exhaust. The thing pulls and pulls and pulls. It is the fastest way to get the bike to who it should have been shipped out of the factory. I also ordered the PC6 because everyone needs more hidden horsepower. Amazing addition to the bike.

  2. Well designed - installation went smooth, sounds great and makes more power! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2022

    Put on my Adventure 790 S with only 20 miles. Immediate impressions were more sound only when 1/2 throttle or more - which is good for cruising (quiet) then gets a nice sound. Fit and finish on this carbon intake model look like factory works! Definitely saves allot of weight. Installed with a PCV Street Advanced Map with stock exhaust and cat delete. Still breaking in the bike and it runs much better everywhere with this airbox upgrade. Thanks for the install video it was a perfect guide to complete the install - overall took me about 2 hours to do but if I did it again would take about 45 minutes.

  3. Immediate Noticeable Difference 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2021

    Most upgrades provide subtle noticeable differences but this airbox is not only beautiful to look at its all show and even more go factor!!! It was a long wait but worth it in the end.

  4. Carbon intake in matt 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2021

    WOW, yes it is a beautiful piece and if it works half as good as it looks it will be worth to get it.

    Install is tricky but follow the instructional video and you have no problem install it.

    Worth od the money you spending on it !

  5. RP Carbon Intake 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2021

    If you care about your bike; you will buy this as soon as you take delivery. I got my 890 Rally and built the bike up knowing it would never use the stock airbox. Once in my garage, I fitted the RP Rally edition to my Rally and it was easier than any other install (have done 1090/1290 intakes). This makes the bike become alive and allows it to breathe clean air. I can carry three clean filters for week rides and never worry. In regards to HP increase, a mate got one when he found dust past the stock filter; and immediately noticed the difference! He was on a budget and only buys what is needed, so even he admits this is the best investment. The team at Rottweiler Performance has always helped me out, so thanks Chris, Will and Jessica D!!!

  6. best power increase 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Feb 2021

    I have done a decat and tune for it. But this airbox has made more of a difference in how thee bike runs than anything I have done. It even helps the low rpm power!

  7. Rottweiler Does It Again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Feb 2021

    Chris and his team have done it again and developed an improved air intake system for the 790/890 that fits perfectly right out of the box. The attention to detail is second to none. Not only does the product fit perfectly, it looks like it came right out of the KTM Factory designed for the race team. The enhanced response and torque increases it provides give the user the power and response immediately with no need to remap your engine. This product will impress you right from the minute you open the box to after the installation has been completed. Like all their products its makes you feel good buying something that not only fits perfectly but does exactly what they advertise!!! Hats off to the Rottweiler team on another great product!!

  8. The Best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Feb 2021

    I feel like I just installed a works part! The video instructions were the best I have ever seen. The fit and finish are incredible. This upgrade added a little growl to the bike, just the right amount of noise. I really like the filter also. I recommend this part.

  9. Amazing! Long wait was worth it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2020

    I am impressed by the performance , Put 100 plus miles on a hooligan run.. Turns the 790 into and new bike with out spending $14k.. Witch is a big deal in enjoying a bike for 20-40K plus miles, better filter.
    Look forward to pairing with the new map soon..
    Very impressed by the simplicity with huge gains !
    The over all construction is impressive,
