The 2023 KTM 390 Adventure is an adventure bike available at a starting price of Rs. 3,37,290 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 2 colours. The KTM 390 Adventure is powered by 373cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 42.3 bhp and a torque of 37 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, KTM 390 Adventure comes up with anti-locking braking system. This 390 Adventure bike weighs 177 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 14.5 liters.
The 2022 KTM 390 Adventure is a new and improved version of the company’s sub-500cc adventure tourer. The overall design remains similar to the outgoing version and the MY22 KTM 390 Adventure continues to feature a split-style LED headlight, a windscreen with air deflectors, a muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, side-slung exhaust, and alloy wheels (19-inch front/17-inch rear).
While the styling remains unchanged, the Austrian manufacturer claims to have enhanced the quality and robustness of the alloy wheels on the MY22 version. KTM has added new paint options to the 2022 model. The MY22 KTM 390 Adventure is available in two colours – orange/blue and orange/grey.
The feature list on the MY22 390 Adventure gets updated electronics. The adventure tourer now packs two-level traction control (Off-road and Street). The new traction control system is said to give the 390 Adventure a degree of rear wheel slip to enable easier use of the bike in loose or wet terrain. Furthermore, the Off-road traction control mode will remain activated in the event of a brief stall or fall. The lean-sensitive ABS has been retained from the old version.
The MY22 390 Adventure retains the Euro5/BS6-compliant, 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the engine is tuned to deliver 42.3bhp at 9,000rpm and 37Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. The India-spec model, similar to the outgoing version, gets the quickshifter as standard.
The hardware, too, remains identical to the outgoing version. Thus, the India-spec KTM 390 Adventure gets upside-down front forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock. The braking duties are handled by 320mm and 280mm discs at the front and back, respectively.
