New spy shots of KTM 390 Adventure have come up, as we still await the launch of it. The upcoming ADV motorcycle seems to be spotted outside the Bajaj-KTM plant in Pune.
In these shots, you can clearly see the TFT colour instrument console. The same display comes on the Duke 390. The console will be Bluetooth Integrated and easily connectable to a smartphone.
The instrument console might display information such as a compass, GPS navigation, riding range and the other regular things.
At the back, a huge luggage rack can be seen. It is the same test mule which was spotted earlier with luggage panniers and top box. We get a clear idea of the saddle mounts here too.
The seats look comfortable and shorter in height. The fuel tank seems to be big as it goes below the seat. A new triple clamp can be seen, with the key ignition slot just below the instrument console.
KTM 390 Adventure will use the same engine that comes on Duke 390. The 373cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine produces 42 BHP and 37 Nm of peak torque, with the motor mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The engine will receive some revision, so as to aid low-end torque generation as well as in the mid-range. For off-roading, huge amounts of torque at lower RPMs is required.
For suspension, it will come equipped with WP Upside-Down forks at the front and and adjustable monoshock at the back. The travel on the suspension will be increased.
Braking will be handled by disc brakes at both the ends with switchable dual-channel ABS. 390 Adventure will use dual-purpose tires with alloy wheels. Although, in the international markets, it has been spotted with spoked rims.
We expect the prices of KTM 390 Adventure to stay between Rs 3-3.5 Lakhs. In this price, it will stay in competition with BMW G 310 GS and Kawasaki Versys X300.
