The most awaited ADV in India, the KTM 390 Adventure, showcased and revealed at the IBW, has been priced at Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom) in India.
The wait for the KTM 390 Adventure is over. Bajaj-KTM have launched the much-awaited ADV motorcycle in India priced at Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Here is all you need to know about the new 390 Adventure.
The KTM 390 Adventure seems to be more promising than ever. The Austrian powerhouse has used a lot of the design elements from bigger brother, the 790 Adventure. The bike uses the same 373.2-cc engine seen in the 390 Duke and the power figures are the same as well, save for some changes to the mapping to make for a meatier mid-range. The new elements on the KTM 390 Adventure are the new 19- and 17-inch alloy wheels at the front and rear, which will have 100/90-19 and 130/80-17 tyres respectively.
The suspension set-up includes a 43-mm USD fork with compression and rebound adjustability and a rear monoshock that can be adjusted for preload and rebound. The wheelbase of the bike has been significantly increased, to more than 1,400 mm, to suit its off-road characteristics. The fuel tank can now accommodate 14.5 litres and weighs in at 158 kg dry. The motorcycle will, of course, also get a BS VI-compliant engine.
The KTM 390 Adventure goes up against the likes of the Benelli TRK 502 and the Kawasaki Versys-X 300. We can’t wait to get our hands on the all-new ADV to tell you all about how it fares.
