KTM 390 Adventure has been spotted in a production-ready avatar in the global market. The upcoming ADV is scheduled to launch in India this year.
The KTM 390 Adventure has been spotted testing yet again in the global market. However, the recent spy shots show it in a production-ready version, indicating that the launch is not that far.
The ADV will be a global product and is currently under development. A couple of times it has been spied near Pune as well. The global-spec version will be a bit different from what we will get here.
The test mule has been spotted without any camouflage. Of course, the standard KTM colours and the graphics are not seen. A couple of its styling cues are borrowed from Duke 390 as well.
Reports suggest that the KTM 390 Adventure might be unveiled at the EICMA 2019, followed by the launch in India by year-end. It has been speculated to be launched since a year now.
390 Adventure will use the same 373cc engine that comes on Duke and RC. However, the engine will receive some tweaks for better low-end torque generation. It will continue to generate 43 BHP and 37 NM of torque, mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The test mule can be seen with a 19-inch front and a 17-inch rear cast wheels. Earlier, it was spied with spoke wheels. There are chances that it might be available with alloy wheels as well as spoke wheels for the global market.
It will use the same TFT instrument console that comes on the Duke 390. Navigation will definitely be offered with the console. Other features might be the same as on the Duke 390.
Accessories onboard will include saddle bags, panniers, saddle stays, luggage racks and all the necessary touring equipment.
KTM 390 Adventure will compete with the likes of BMW G 310 GS, Kawasaki Versys X 300 and Royal Enfield Himalayan. The latter is currently the best selling entry-level ADV in India.
