    KTM has launched a new, low-cost variant of the 390 Adventure at an introductory price of Rs 2.8 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This makes the new KTM 390 Adventure X significantly cheaper than the current 390 Adventure that’s priced at Rs 3.38 lakh. The intent behind launching the new variant is to make the bike accessible to a wider audience.

    1. KTM 390 Adventure X is the new entry-level variant
    2. No traction control, quickshifter and cornering ABS

    KTM 390 Adventure X details

    In order to price the 390 Adventure at Rs 2.8 lakh, KTM has omitted a host of electronics from the bike like traction control, quickshifter and cornering ABS. However, KTM has retained the dual-channel ABS set-up with the provision to switch off ABS at the rear wheel, helping one slide the bike while riding off-road.

    The 390 Adventure X also does not get the Bluetooth connectivity-equipped TFT display and instead has an LCD panel.

    Besides the omission of a host of electronics, the 390 Adventure X is identical to the existing bike, be it the all-LED lights, bodywork and the engine, or the suspension. The colour options include Orange and Dark Galvano.

    KTM 390 Adventure X competition

    With the starting price of the KTM 390 Adventure now sitting well below Rs 3 lakh, it makes for great value for money for those who want a powerful (43.5hp/37Nm) adventure motorcycle sans a bunch of frills. To put things in perspective, the 390 Adventure X only costs Rs 36,000 more than the KTM 250 Adventure. The BMW G 310 GS is another competitor that the KTM 390 Adventure targets and the X variant undercuts it by Rs 40,000.

    On the other hand, when you consider the price of the Royal Enfield Himalayan (Rs 2.15 lakh), the stretch to the KTM 390 Adventure X is Rs 65,000. While the gap is big, the KTM does offer a more modern and powerful engine that’ll easily sit at highway speeds more comfortably than the RE.
