The 390 Adventure marks KTM’s entry into India’s emerging Adventure biking segment.
KTM has announced the price of their most awaited KTM 390 Adventure. Bookings now have commenced, at KTM Showrooms across the country for the 390 Adventure priced at Rs. 2,99,000 (Ex-showroom Delhi). The bike went on sale from 20 January 2020.
The 390 Adventure is purpose built for adventure travel and features a lightweight Trellis frame chassis, a long travel suspension by WP with 170mm of wheel travel in the front and 177mm of wheel travel in the rear, knobby tyres by Metzeller, high ground clearance of 200mm, long wheelbase, extendable windshield and a protective bash plate for the engine.
The most differentiating aspect of the 390 Adventure is that it comes packed with a set of first in class electronics or rider aids which have been so far limited only to the superbikes in the litre class. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) controls a host of electronic aids like the lean angle sensitive Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) which allows for better traction on dirt & loose gravel surfaces, Cornering ABS which provides for a safer and sharper ride through the twisties, Offroad ABS for better steering on low traction surfaces, Quickshifter+ for smooth clutchless up and down shifting and KTM MY RIDE smartphone connectivity for calls, music and an optional turn-by-turn navigation. These aids work seamlessly to ensure a feeling of optimal control and come into play in the trickiest of situations.
The 390 Adventure is build on the versatility of the KTM 390 Duke Engine – a state-of-the-art DOHC single cylinder head technology – derived from KT´s high-performance race models and electronics such as EFI and ride by wire resulting in class leading 43 Hp of Power and 37 Nm of Torque.
Speaking on the occasion Sumeet Narang, President (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto Ltd. said “The Adventure biking segment in India is starting to pick up steam over the last few years, backed by a widespread motorcycle touring culture. With the new KTM 390 Adventure, loaded with a host of first-in-class features, we believe KTM will play a pivotal role in building the adventure motorcycle segment in the country. The 390 Adventure will be available through exciting & affordable ownership plans too, the details for which will be made available at the KTM showrooms.”
