  • KTM has started delivering the 390 Adventure bikes to its owners.
  • KTM 390 Adventure was launched on January 20, 2020, for Rs 2.99 lakhs.
  • KTM has announced the launch of its entire range of BS6-compliant bikes for the Indian market.

The KTM 390 Adventure deliveries have begun after its successful launch on January 20, 2020, at Rs 2.99 lakhs. The adventure bike was first unveiled at the 2019 EICMA Motorcycle show. The vehicle made its debut in India at the India Bike Week.

KTM bikes have always grabbed the attention of the younger generation because of their ruggedness that gives it a manly look. The orange coloured bikes are a dead giveaway, as one can easily spot them from among hundreds of bikes on the road. The KTM 390 Adventure competes with top-quality bikes like the BMW G 310 GS. In a way, the KTM 390 Adventure scores over its BMW competitor because the KTM 390 Adventure is a BS6-compliant model and the BMW is BS4 compliant. On the pricing aspect, the BMW G 310 GS is available for Rs 3.49 lakhs as against the Rs 2.99 lakhs that the KTM 390Adventure costs.

The KTM 390 Adventure international model is better than the Indian one because it features adjustable front forks.

The Indian version uses the non-adjustable upside-down telescopic forks for the front wheels and a pre-loaded adjustable monoshock for the rear. The front forks can travel up to 170mm, whereas the rear ones go up to 177mm.

The bike would have been more expensive if the Indian version were to feature the adjustable front forks.

As a compensatory measure, the Indian model comes with a QuickShifter+ as a standard feature. The innovative feature of the KTM 390 Adventure is the clutch-less gear-shifting mechanism for both the up and downshifts. Other exciting features of the KTM 390 Adventure include a Bluetooth-enable colour TFT display, LED lighting, and backlit switchgear. Users can pay an additional amount to have the turn-by-turn navigation feature.

Another dazzling feature of the KTM 390 Adventure is the 19-inch alloy front wheel and 17-inch alloy rear wheel, both of them wrapped in Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose tyres.

The KTM 390 Adventure draws its power from a BS6-compliant 373.2cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled 4-valve DOHC engine capable of delivering 43hp power and torque of 37Nm. The engine mates with a 6-speed transmission system. The engine is the same one that is available on the 390 Duke Roadster.

Similarly, the KTM 390 Adventure shares its braking system with the 390 Duke. The braking duties are entrusted to a 320mm disc brake for the front wheel and a 230mm rotor for the rear. Bybre-sourced callipers are used to grab the back-wheel rotors. Other safety aspects include dual-channel ABS along with a traction control system, with both of these features displaying a lean-sensitive function. The bike comes with a switchable dual-channel ABS.

BS6-compliant bikes will become the norm after April 01, 2020. KTM has geared up to meet the emission norms by upgrading all its bike models to become BS6-compliant.
