The two upcoming variants of KTM 390, Scrambler and Adventure, have been spied in Europe. Both the variants are based on the manufacturer’s 390 platform and the public debut of the concept-models are expected at the EICMA show on November 7, 2017.

The spy images hint that the testing mules are in a very early stage of their development. The exact specifications of the new variants are yet to be disclosed, but the testing model of Scrambler 390 looks entirely different from the one spotted last year. The new 390 Adventure borrows some of its styling from the Duke 390, but is expected to be a better off-road (dirt) bike. On the other hand, the Adventure 390 is meant for both long rides as well as an off-roading.

The models do not look ready for production and it seems that the testing is being performed to ascertain the right size and type of the wheels for them. According to the images, a 19-inch spoke wheel features at the front and a 17-inch wheel at the rear. The fuel tank looks newly designed and could offer a larger space in the Adventure variant from the existing 390 model. However, the Scrambler 390 is expected to retain the dimensions of the Duke 390 with some added features to offer better off-road performance. 

The engine specifications of the new variants are not likely to receive many changes, apart from some tunings. Both the models are expected to be lined-up between Duke and RC in the company’s portfolio.

The products are jointly developed by KTM and Bajaj, which will be produced at the Bajaj’s plant at Chakan. It will be exported to the global markets from the manufacturing plant of India.
