Last year, KTM introduced the 2022 390 Adventure to the world. The latest version of the motorcycle has now been released in the Indian market. Ex-showroom, the 2022 KTM 390 Adventure costs Rs. 3.35 lakhs. The motorcycle’s price has been increased by Rs. 7,000, however, there have been some adjustments made by KTM.
Two traction control options are now available on the 390 Adventure. There are two types: street and off-road. The Street mode allows the traction control to function normally. The mechanism will allow a certain amount of slip in Off-road mode before kicking in. Off-road riders will benefit from this. Furthermore, if the motorcycle falls or stalls, it will not return to Street mode. This has been done to avoid the falling rider while riding.
A new set of 5-spoke alloy wheels has been installed in place of the 12-spoke alloy wheels. Despite having fewer spokes, KTM claims that the new alloy wheels are stiffer and should be able to withstand impacts better. Then there’s Dark Galvano Black and KTM Factory Racing Blue, which are both new colors. The 390 Adventure has not been altered in any way.
It still has a 373 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. At 9,000 rpm, the engine produces 43.5 PS of maximum power and 37 Nm of maximum torque. The engine is connected to a quick-shifting 6-speed transmission. The front and rear brake discs are still 320 mm and 280 mm in diameter, respectively. A dual-channel anti-lock braking system is also available from KTM. WP Up-side down forks in the front and a mono-shock in the back handle the suspension responsibilities.
KTM 250 Adventure was also launched some time back
In January of this year, KTM introduced the 2022 250 Adventure. Ex-showroom, it costs Rs. 2.35 lakhs. In comparison to 390 Adventure, it did not receive any big changes. Two new colour schemes have been added by KTM. KTM Factory Racing Blue and KTM Electronic Orange are available. It also gets new, stronger 10-spoke alloy wheels.
It still has an LCD screen, halogen headlight, multi-information display, and a 12V charging port. It lacks a TFT screen, smartphone connectivity, quick-shifter, LED headlamp, and traction control system when compared to the 390 Adventure.
