KTM 390 Adventure Latest Updates
The KTM 390 Adventure has been spotted sporting a list of PowerPart accessories designed specifically for the bike. It includes a radiator guard, aluminium bash plate, soft side panniers and a top box. The motorcycle was spotted testing in Europe. It also comes with the same exhaust routing as the one spied in India. This indicates that the upcoming bike will be Euro-V compliant in the market abroad as the norm mandates the emission compliance for new bikes from January 2020 onwards. The KTM 390 Adventure will be unveiled at this year’s EICMA show followed by its launch by the end of this year. It will compete with the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Kawasaki Versys-X 300 and BMW G 310 GS.

KTM 390 Adventure Highlights
While the 390 Adventure is designed to handle rough terrains, it will be powered by the same 373cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor that produces 43.5PS and 37Nm of torque on the Naked 390 Duke. Expect the engine to be tuned for stronger low-end and mid-range grunt. The 390 Adventure too will get WP suspension up front but with longer travel than the road going sibling. The rear monoshock too will have longer travel. This would result in higher ground clearance.
Design and Features
On the design front expect the 390 Adventure to be inspired by the KTM 790 Adventure, which is very close to the company’s Dakar range of bikes. So expect it to get a raised front fender along with a front cowl that showcases KTM's traditional vertical split LED headlights, on top which would be a minimalistic wind deflector. This would be enough to cover the instrument panel, which would be carried forward from the Duke 390. The rider is expected to get a split seat setup. Also, expect the exhaust to be high raised to tackle river crossings better.
Royal Enfield Himalayan: The Himalayan is a great bike and a thoughtful one, compared to other Royal Enfield offerings. It has been made in a fashion that ensures it won’t just be great for long trips but even for daily commutes. However, quality issues on the Himalayan work against its favour and we hope Royal Enfield have addressed these problems in this update.
BMW G 310 GS: The G 310 GS is made for riding with ease over both the tarmac and uneven terrain, thanks to its long-travel suspension, dual-purpose tyres and adventure-friendly design. This makes it an ideal companion to explore the countryside. Bear in mind though, that it's not a hardcore off-roader. Both the 310 GS and the 310 R share the 313cc, single-cylinder with 34PS produced at 9500rpm, and 28Nm at 7500rpm.
Since both the G310 GS and the KTM 390 Adventure are yet to launch, we can’t really comment on where they stand against the Royal Enfield Himalayan. But we expect the 390 Adventure to be a more hardcore off-roader in comparison to the G 310 GS. It is also expected to be a lot more durable, powerful, light and nimble than the Royal Enfield. But to put assumptions to rest we will have to wait to get our hands on KTM 390 Adventure.
