The 2020 KTM 390 Adventure was first unveiled at the 2019 EICMA show in Italy. Its introduction marks KTM’s entry into the emerging adventure motorcycles market in India. Pricing for the motorcycle will be announced when it will go on sale from January 2020 across all KTM showrooms.

The recent years have witnessed an increasing trend in adventure touring and the interest in outdoor exploration is on the rise. The new KTM 390 Adventure has been conceptualized to address this trend and has been purpose-built for adventure travel while being a great ride for city use as well.

The adventure bike features 43 mm open-cartridge upside-down WP APEX front forks with 170 mm of travel and gas-assisted WP APEX rear shock having 177 mm of travel with progressive spring and preload adjustment. It also gets knobby tyres for offroad use, high ground clearance of 200 mm, extendable windshield and a protective bash plate.

Visually the motorcycle has been designed to look similar to the championship-winning KTM-450 Rally. The bike derives much from KTM’s rich legacy in Rally Racing in terms of chassis, profiling & several specs such as a large 14.5-litre fuel tank, ergonomics & wind protection to ensure a steady, safe & easy ride in corners and on the street.

The KTM 390 Adventure is aimed squarely at motorcyclists who desire a bike to handle short and long tours alike, traversing tarmac roads as well as all kinds of offroad stretches like gravel, slush, water crossing or sand.

The bike builds on the versatility of the KTM 390 Duke Engine – A state-of-the-art DOHC single cylinder head technology – derived from KTM´s high-performance race models and electronics such as EFI and ride by wire resulting in 43 Hp of Power and 37 Nm of Torque.

The KTM 390 Adventure motorcycle also features a set first in class electronics or rider aids which have been so far limited only to the litre-class superbikes.

The Electronic Control Unit or 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 braking on low traction surfaces, and Quickshifter+ for smooth clutchless up and downshifting, all nicely displayed and relayed by the full-colour TFT display.

KTM says that there is a strong opportunity for Adventure 390 to create and grow the adventure motorcycles segment in India. The current offerings in the market are either underpowered or struggling with basic technology and reliability issues.
