Austrian bike maker KTM has officially confirmed the launch of the much awaited 390 Adventure for the Indian market. The KTM 390 Adventure has been in the pipeline for a while now, and we first heard about the model from Bajaj Auto, Managing Director, last year at the launch of the RC range.
The KTM 390 Adventure will be the smallest adventure motorcycle from the manufacturer and will be sold alongside the Duke and RC range in the bike maker's stable. It will be sharing its underpinnings with the 390 Duke. So expect the same trellis frame underneath tweaked for ADV duties, along with a new long travel suspension setup. The bike is also expected to sport the TFT instrument console, full LED headlamp unit, ride-by-wire, and possibly riding modes as well. KTM says the upcoming 390 Adventure will be "a state-of-the-art package to ride long distances and conquer any terrain."
Power is expected to come from the familiar 373 cc single-cylinder engine that also powers the KTM 390 Duke and RC 390. The motor is tuned for 43 bhp and 37 Nm of peak torque on the Duke, and you can expect those numbers to make it on the 390 Adventure as well. In addition, we expect to see a larger fuel tank, wider and more comfortable seats coupled with an upright riding position.
