KTM 390 Adventure at IBW 2019; showcased, not launched

We have been waiting for today ever since KTM India confirmed that it’s going to launch the 390 Adventure at the India Bike Week 2019. And indeed, the 390 Adventure was present at the event, however, KTM only showcased the bike and hasn’t launched it. That means we still don’t know the pricing.

We already knew how the 390 Adventure looks like because it had been put up on the stands at the EICMA 2019. And that’s why we were expecting KTM India to launch the 390 Adventure and not just showcase it.

Yes, we are going to get the pricing sooner or later but there was this anticipation, and excitement that levelled down a bit by that news. We were really looking forward to having the prices of the new bike today. But anyway, we waited for this long, we’ll wait some more. It is being speculated that KTM would reveal the pricing in January 2020.

Well, until that happens, here is a quick revision of the KTM 390 Adventure key specs-

  • Design inspired by 790 Adventure
  • 14.5-litre fuel tank capacity
  • Knuckle guards
  • Clear windscreen
  • Engine sump guard

  • 320mm disc up front, 230mm disc at the rear
  • Dual-channel ABS with Supermoto mode
  • TFT dash with Bluetooth
  • Traction control
  • Same 390 Duke engine – 43 bhp, 37 Nm, 6-speed ‘box

When launched, the 390 Adventure’s main rivals should be the Kawasaki Versys 300, BMW G310 GS, and also the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
