The soon to be launched KTM 390 Adventure made its global debut at the EICMA 2019and is the newest member of the Duke range of motorcycles. The motorcycle will be made in India and will be exported to foreign markets.
The all new KTM 390 Adventure has been spotted testing in Europe and in India many times. KTM's compact adventure tourer features a shield shaped LED headlamp, a small visor, a set of edgy fuel tank extensions, an upward swept exhaust for better water wading, and a digital TFT display.
The KTM 390 Adventure features 19-inch alloy wheels at the front, and 17-inch alloys at the rear. Braking duties are handled by disc brakes at both ends, and dual-channel ABS is offered as a standard.
The all new Adventure features dual-purpose tyres to balance on and off road performance. Prototypes seen earlier indicate that the trellis frame has provisions to mount several accessories like saddle stays, rear luggage rack, panniers, frame sliders, and engine guards.
The motorcycle features the same 373cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that is featured on the Duke and RC 390 models. The engine produces 43bhp of power and 37Nm of torque. The engine come mated to a six-speed transmission, and features a slip and assist clutch. The motorcycle also features traction control, and a supermoto mode.
The company will manufacture that 390 Adventure at Bajaj's Chakan plant near Pune, and the motorcycle is expected to be one of the important volume pullers for the Austrian brand worldwide.
