KTM 390 Adventure Overview
KTM India is planning to launch its all-new series of 390 Adventure bikes by the end of 2017. Based on the nearest sibling –the Duke 390, the KTM 390 Adventure version of the motorbike is all set to become the heartthrob of adventurous bikers out there looking for some lightweight performance during a fun ride. Based on a completely typical street-version of the adventure bikes, the KTM 390 Adventure borrows its inherent traits from the standard 1190 Adventure in terms of the overall design. In terms of the overall styling, the KTM 390 Adventure takes in a great level of inspiration from the Enduro R of KTM by overlooking the front fender, tail, and its seat.
KTM 390 Adventure Engine & Transmission
Speaking of the engine, there are expected not too major changes as with the standard version of the KTM’s 1190 Adventure.

It is assumed that the 373.2cc liquid cooled, single cylinder engine of the present generation RC 390 and Duke 390 will be retained in this new version of KTM 390 Adventure with some major improvements in the overall tuning. The 373.2cc engine of the superbike is expected to be generating an engine power of 41 BHP at 9500 rpm with a peak torque of 37 Nm at 7350 rpm. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox for ultimate transmission factors. The entire nature of the engine along with the respective gear ratios is tweaked to be suiting any adventurer tourer.
