After the entry of KTM 390 Adventure in India, the path is set for the younger sibling to enter the stage and it is none other than the KTM 250 Adventure. Priced at 2.48 lakhs, this one will bring contest in the 250cc segment due to a plethora of features and latest technology stuffed in this model. Will it be a success or a setback for KTM?.
The KTM 250 Adventure is powered by a 248.8cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 29.5 bhp and a torque of 24 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, KTM 250 Adventure comes up with an anti-locking braking system. This 250 Adventure bike weighs 177 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 14.5 liters.
KTM has updated its India portfolio with the launch of its entry-level adventure motorcycle, the 250 Adventure. The quarter-liter adventure tourer joins the 390 Adventure in the country to rival against the likes of the BMW G 310 GS and the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
The styling cues are similar to the 390 Adventure, although the 250cc model gets a halogen headlight and an LCD screen. Other features include LED DRL, LED indicators, an LED taillight, split-style seats, a side-slung exhaust, and an engine cowl.
The 250 Adventure is powered by a BS6-compliant 248cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 29.5bhp of power and 24Nm of peak torque. The motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox that benefits from a slipper and an assist clutch. Unlike the 390 Adventure, the new 250 Adventure does not get the quickshifter function.
The cycle parts on the 250 Adventure include a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock with a 177mm travel range and the upside-down 43mm front forks boasting 170mm of travel – both sourced from WP. Similar to the 390 Adventure, the quarter-litre adventure tourer rides on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear cast wheels. The anchoring setup includes a 320mm front disc and a 230mm rear rotor, while the safety net includes a switchable, dual-channel ABS system.
Powering the 250 Adventure is a 248.8cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled DOHC engine. This is the same motor that one finds on the 250 Duke as well as the Husqvarna 250s. No change to the engine tune, it still churning out 30PS and 24Nm. The six-speed gearbox and slip-and-assist clutch remain untouched.
There are no differences in the styling department of the 250 Adventure to its elder sibling the 390 Adventure. The sharp tank extensions, tall, flat seat, and long-tail section are all the same. The 250 Adventure is available in two colors: orange/black and black/orange.
