We may soon have another mini adventure bike joining the fray
Spy pics have surfaced of what seems to be a small adventure bike powered by the same 373-cc single that does duty in the Duke 390 and RC 390. These shots, originally published by Cycle World, were reportedly taken outside KTM’s test facility in southern Europe, and the designers seem to have taken some inspiration from KTM’s larger Enduro R. The bike features long-travel suspensions at both ends, large spoked wheels and a beefy new swingarm.

So far, the only small adventure bike available in the Indian market is the Royal Enfield Himalayan, and with machines like the BMW G310GS, Kawasaki Versys-X 300 and Suzuki V-Strom 250 already unveiled at EICMA, this new entrant from Team Orange should spice up the small-displacement adventure segment even more.
