The Kove 800X Pro might not be one of the first bikes you think of when considering which middleweight adventure bike you want to buy, but maybe its price will convince you.

The Yamaha Tenere 700, Honda XL750 Transalp, KTM 890 Adventure, and Aprilia Tuareg 660 are all among the best middleweight adventure bikes in the world, but they’re all also more expensive than the Kove 800X Pro.

Announced over the weekend at Adventure Bike Rider Festival, the UK price was confirmed by the Chinese manufacturer at £8,499. That’s over £4,000 less than the KTM 890 Adventure (£12,699), more than £2,000 less than the base price of the Aprilia Tuareg 660 (£10,600), over £1,500 less than the base-spec Yamaha Tenere 700 (£10,116), and over £1,000 less than the Honda XL750 Transalp (£9,699). 

So, it’s fair to say that Kove has undercut some of its major competition in the middleweight adventure division with its 800X Pro, and it’s also brought an improved specification over the standard 800X.

Over the standard version (183kg), the Pro (185kg) gains 2kg in kerb weight, and its 275mm ride height is an increase of 30mm. Additionally, its seat height is adjustable between 865mm and 875mm, both of which are taller than the standard’s 845mm, and its 1,510mm wheelbase is 8mm longer than the standard bike’s.

Performance from the 799cc parallel twin-cylinder engine is equal between the two variants, with 95bhp and 59lb ft pushing either the standard 800X or the Pro to a top speed of 130mph, but the chassis sees some changes.

The Pro gains Pirelli tyres, albeit with wheels of the same 18-inch (rear) and 21-inch (front) sizes, and the front brake discs gain four-piston callipers over the standard bike’s dual-piston units. Both get KYB suspension front and rear, with preload and damping adjustments are each end, and the diamond-shaped beam frame is the same between the two bikes, as well.

Kove also announced the price for its smaller 510X adventurer over the weekend. The 498cc twin-cylinder-powered bike will come in at £5,999 and, with a maximum power output of 35kW (47bhp), it’s able to be ridden on an A2 licence.

Although its outright performance is obviously less than the 800s, and the front wheel reduced to a 19-inch, the 510X still boasts adjustable KYB suspension at both ends, and it uses the same diamond-shaped beam chassis as its larger siblings.
