KTM 390 ADVENTURE OVERVIEW

The KTM 390 Adventure is powered by a 373cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 42.3 bhp and a torque of 37 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, KTM 390 Adventure comes up with an anti-locking braking system.

This bike will be based on the naked sibling- the Duke 390. Though based on the street-fighter version, it will borrow traits from the 790 Adventure model in terms of design. This new motorcycle sports a stronger and longer suspension, dual-purpose tires, and a larger fuel tank. The motorcycle gets an upright seating position making it more comfortable for longer distances.

The 390 Adventure is powered by the same 373.2cc single-cylinder motor, the Duke 390 is powered with. It comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. ABS will be offered as standard. It also gets a switchable traction control system which is first in the segment.

With an aggressive price tag, the KTM 390 Adventure has managed to undercut the BMW G310GS by a large margin. Plus, the KTM out equips the BMW too. The bike is currently offered in two paint schemes –white and orange.

The 390 Adventure is based on the 390 Duke and uses the same Trellis frame with a subframe. The bike borrows heavily in terms of design from the larger KTM 790 Adventure. The bike gets an upright seating position with center set footpegs for a more comfortable riding stance over long distances. The motorcycle also gets the pincer-type LED headlamp along with tank extensions. There is a windscreen upfront and the bike gets a deflector. The seat is wider than the 390 for both the rider and pillion but stands tall at 858 mm. The model comes with knuckle guards, a bash plate for the engine, and grab rails at the rear.

The fuel tank capacity stands at 14.5 liters, about a liter more than the 390 Duke. The 390 Adventure is about nine kilos more than the 390 Duke at 158 kg (dry). The bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels at either end with dual-purpose tyres. The KTM 390 Adventure competes against a number of offerings including the BMW G 310 GS, as well as the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
