2019 KTM 390 Adventure could look like this when launched

Written by Parichay Malvankar

From one of the best rendering artists in our industry, we can now get a glimpse of what the KTM 390 Adventure could look like when launched in India. Based on the recent set of spyshots, when the bike was caught testing here in India, this rendering images looks very realistic, and surely gives everyone a fair idea of what to expect.

KTM very soon after BMW launched the G 310 GS announced that they will be launching the 390 Adventure in India. However, this bike has been delayed quite a bit, as potential customers have been waiting for years. When launched, the KTM 390 Adventure is expected to command a price premium of close to INR 30,000 – 40,000 over the KTM 390 Duke, because of the extra equipment it gets.

The bike which was spotted testing, was seen running on alloy wheels. This led to another rumour that KTM might launch the 390 Adventure in 2 variants, a road going KTM 390 Adventure standard variant, and a more off-road friendly ‘R’ variant. Just like its elder siblings.

Powering the bike will be the same 373cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke motor producing close to 44 HP of power and matched to a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch. Spyshots have already revealed knobby tyres, longer travel suspension, wider seats, new upswept exhaust, luggage mounts, crash guards, larger windscreen and the likes.

Are you excited? Will you buy the KTM 390 Adventure if it looks like this?
