Shares its underpinnings with 390 Duke.

Rivals the BMW G 310 GS and Kawasaki Versys X 300.
KTM first revealed the 390 Adventure in India at the 2019 India Bike Week (IBW), held in Goa in December last year. Now, the Austrian two-wheeler manufacturer has officially launched the bike in the country at a starting price of Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
The off-roader is based on the same platform as the KTM 390 Duke but gets 200 mm of ground clearance, long-travel suspension with 170 mm of wheel travel at the front and 177 mm of rear-wheel travel.
KTM has equipped the 390 Adventure with a 19-inch tyre up front and a 17-inch at the rear, covered in Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose rubber. The bike also gets switchable traction control, along with a bi-directional quick-shifter.
Powering the 390 Adventure is the same 373.2 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected DOHC motor, which puts out 43 PS maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 37 Nm peak torque at 7,000 rpm, and comes mated to a 6-speed transmission.
This is the same engine on offer with the KTM 390 Duke and RC 390, albeit in a BS6-compliant state; which also makes it the first BS6-compliant motorcycle to be offered by the manufacturer.
The 390 Adventure also gets the KTM My Ride smartphone connectivity, which helps the rider connect his/her phone with the motorcycle through a dedicated app, and answer calls, play music and even use turn-by-turn navigation. The bike comes equipped with a full-colour TFT display as well.
KTM has priced the 390 Adventure at a starting price of Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom), which makes it Rs 51,000 dearer than its naked sibling. The bike undercuts both its rivals, which include the BMW G 310 GS and the Kawasaki Versys X-300, which are priced at Rs 3.49 lakh and Rs 4.69 lakh (ex-showroom) respectively.
The adventurer can be booked at any KTM dealership across India, with the deliveries set to commence soon.
