It won't be wrong to say that KTM 390 Adventure is one of the most awaited adventure motorcycles in the Indian market. The upcoming adventure bikes from KTM India will be seen in lightweight avatars that have been on the wish-list of many adventure riders in the country.

Based on the 390 Duke bike, the KTM 390 Adventure will get the powertrain option from the naked version meeting the forthcoming BS6 norms. However, the bike is expected to be seen in a different state of tune to offer lower torque. The power figures of the 373cc, single-cylinder unit will remain identical to 390 Duke, providing the power of 43bhp at 9,000 rpm against 37Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm. However, it remains to be seen what KTM has to offer for the fuelling thing or tune-ups for making the bike more adventure-oriented. The KTM 250 Adventure, on the other hand, will share the 249cc engine of the 250 Duke to produce 29bhp and 24 Nm of power figures.
As far as the prices are concerned, the KTM 390 Adventure is likely to be priced somewhere around Rs 3.3 lakh (ex-showroom) whereas the 250cc Adventure will be the more affordable derivative that could be priced around Rs 2.4 lakh (ex-showroom). Moreover, the bikes are likely to be launched by next year, probably in January.
