KTM India has introduced the 2023 KTM 390 ADVENTURE model priced at Rs. 3.60 lakhs (Ex-Showroom, Delhi). Since its launch three years ago, the KTM 390 Adventure has become the ultimate choice for adventure bike enthusiasts, offering exceptional performance, modern technology, and impressive riding dynamics. These motorcycles pay homage to KTM’s dominance in the Dakar Rally, where they have achieved 19 wins and 22 podium finishes since 2001. The new 2023 model will be available alongside the existing 390 Adventure and 390 Adventure X variants.
What’s new in the 2023 edition of the KTM 390 Adventure?
In response to the desires and demands of KTM fans, the 2023 KTM 390 ADVENTURE now comes with fully adjustable suspension and spoke wheels, complemented by an eye-catching Rally Orange color scheme.
The WP APEX suspension system offers complete adjustability for compression, rebound, and preload. This allows riders to achieve optimal grip and confidence-inspiring performance both on-road and off-road. The front USD forks feature 30 clicks each for compression and rebound damping, while the rear mono-shock provides 20 clicks for rebound adjustment along with 10-step preload customization. These features enable riders to tailor their ride quality, handling, and comfort according to their individual preferences and loaded weight.
Additionally, the bike features durable yet lightweight spoked wheels (19″ front and 17″ rear) with black anodized aluminum rims, ensuring that unexpected encounters with roots and stones during off-road adventures won’t abruptly halt the journey.
