Jumping into existence!
Everyone, meet ‘Heliodoro’, meaning Gift of the Sun God. Hyperion’s gift to me, to let me dance with someone else during my recovery.
Had a blast getting to know this little guy! Heliodoro is a KTM 790 Adventure and is going to help Jess recover during the end of the year 2019 and the year 2020.
Follow this page for all the real life, no nonsense adventures this bike will experience during the next months. Roughly sheduled, Jess is getting to know the bike on offroad now and then we’ll set off to Morocco. It will be a reliability test for sure.
Heliodoro’s hoops shipped out to Belgium last month. @ridingwiththewolf went with our Dakar setup, a 21×1.60 front and 18×2.15 rear on her KTM 790ADV. We laced the A60 rims to our “Hyperion Yellow” Superlite Hubs with heavy duty spokes and nipples. This wheel set is our most aggressive off-road offering for the 790 and allows riders to pick through trails, increase traction and choose from a large selection of knobby tires.
Guglatech fuel filtration
Heliodoro features the newest products of Guglatech Fuel Filtration for the KTM 790 Adventure as well as the Air Filter.
Featuring not only the fuel filter in the tanks, they also provide a filter for the fuel pump.

ACD Racing Parts Skidplate
Allroadmoto.be provided Heliodoro with an ACD Skidplate to try-out at offroad rides and the upcoming Erzberg Rodeo Prologue event!
The new skidplate is a lot heavier but to be fair the original is paperthin and I have my doubts about the OEM skid plate in rocky terrain or encountering a wooden stump somewhere in the mud.
Installation of the ACD skidplate was super easy, mounts on the same points as the OEM and you get a hardware mounting kit with it. The bolts are reworked inside the plate, so the heads don’t get damaged during impact. Also there is an extra foam added to the skid plate to help dampening any impact.
