After years of teasing and rumors, KTM has finally unveiled the 390 Adventure at the EICMA 2019 and it’s one of the most important products for the Indian market. More than the European market itself for which the EICMA show is important, the KTM 390 Adventure holds importance for our domestic market where KTM successfully sells 390 Duke and RC 390. The 390 Adventure will join the two siblings and will have the same styling as the rest two. The 390 Adventure is essentially an off-road-oriented version of the 390 Duke.
While the numerous spy shots have earlier hinted at similar styling like the naked sibling, seeing the production variant up close at the EICMA show reveals that there are significant differences between the two. To start with, the 390 Adventure will have different steering head angle and trail as compared to the 390 Duke. The wheelbase is increased to 1430 mm which is near 80 mm more than the Duke and the ground clearance sits at 200 mm, which is not too much for an ADV. The seat height is 855 mm and it also has a larger fuel tank with 14.5-litre fuel capacity.
