KTM is preparing to launch the 390 Adventure in the Indian market in 2019. The much awaited high performance adventure bike has been making headlines for quite some time and the Austrian brand has now announced it will bring the model here next year. This will be sold alongside the Streetfighter Dukes ad Supersport RC siblings in the domestic market.
With this, KTM is expecting to see boost in sales performance as the demands for the premium and high performance adventure bikes have been increasing in India for quite some time. The KTM 390 Adventure comes bearing the Austrian brand’s legacy of being the unbeatable at the world’s toughest race, the Dakar Rally since 2001.
In India, KTM is one of the fastest growing motorcycle brands with a CAGR of 45% since its launch six years ago. The brand has been able to be very popular among the young generation customers of the country with its aggressively priced Duke and RC models that are produced locally in India at Bajaj Auto’s plant.
Expect the aggressive looking adventure bike to be priced between Rs 2.20 lakh and Rs 2.40 lakh (ex-showroom). It gets power from the same 373.2 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine coupled with a 6-speed transmission, that works in the KTM Duke 390. The adventure bike will get ABS as standard.
