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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 !

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!!!

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!

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!!

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.

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,
