The entry-level adventure motorcycle segment is witnessing participation from a number of manufacturers in India. The off-road scene in the country is also evolving and the brands like KTM should leverage it. However, there's no official information on the pricing of KTM 390 Duke Adventure, we expect it to be Rs 40,000 more than the KTM 390 Duke. This kind of competitive pricing will help it to undercut the key rival - BMW G 310 GS, keeping in mind that the BS-VI engine might further increase the price of 390 Duke Adventure. Other key rival includes Kawasaki Versys X 300, though it has a price tag of Rs 4.69 lakh (all prices ex-showroom).
