KTM 390 Adventure
« on: February 20, 2019, 01:46:56 pm »
Interesting article from India.
https://www.rushlane.com/2019-ktm-390-adventure-rendered-2-12297346.html

Based on the Duke 390 platform, the 390 Adventure promises to offer best-in-class performance with long distance touring capability. If the prototypes spotted in public are anything to go by, KTM is likely to come up with two variants of its smallest adventure tourer. The off-road focused variant would have spoke wheels wrapped by knobbies while the mainstream model will be equipped with alloy wheels and milder dual-purpose tyres.

Looks like the 390 will be competitively priced there to undercut the 310GS...
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

Exciting times we live in. If the offroad version is cheaper than the BMW 310 Adventure, I would love to own one!

It will most probably have the speed to get to your off-road destination, and from there it can just be fun!

If there is any competition, my guess it will be from the Kawasaki 300 versys rather than the BMW.

The 390 makes 40hp which is decent
