    KTM 390 Adventure launched at Rs 2.99 lakh

    The wait is over. KTM has launched the 390 Adventure at Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and bookings have already commenced across the country. Barring the price, there was nothing that wasn’t revealed about the 390 Adventure over the past couple months, ever since it was first unveiled at EICMA 2019. The India-spec 390 debuted at India Bike Week last month and there are a couple things that differentiate it from the international-spec bike.

    For starters, the 390 Adventure gets Metzeler Tourance tyres with a 100/90-19 tyre at the front and a 130/80-17 tyre at the rear. Suspension duties are carried out by a 43mm USD fork, but, unlike the international bike that offers compression and rebound adjustability, this one is a non-adjustable unit. The rear monoshock, meanwhile, can be adjusted for pre-load and rebound. This setup also offers more travel when compared to the 390 Duke – 170mm/177mm (front/rear) compared to the 142mm/150mm on the naked 390. KTM has also equipped it with switchable traction control and a bi-directional quickshifter as standard.

    The rest of the bike is essentially the same as the one sold international markets. It uses the same 373.2cc, single-cylinder engine from the 390 Duke, with peak outputs of 44hp produced at 9,000rpm and 37Nm of torque coming in at 7,000rpm. The KTM 390 Adventure is the manufacturer’s first BS6-compliant motorcycle, and the rest of the range will follow suit soon.

    At Rs 2.99 lakh, the 390 Adventure costs Rs 51,000 more than its naked sibling, but is well under its most direct rivals – the BMW G 310 GS (Rs 3.49 lakh) and the Kawasaki Versys X 300 (Rs 4.69 lakh).
