KTM 390 Adventure Latest Updates

Priced at Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom), the KTM 390 Adventure undercuts its rivals like the BMW G 310 GS and the Kawasaki Versys-X 300. The motorcycle is one of two small capacity adventure motorcycles (the other one being the 250 Adventure) from the Austrian manufacturer as they offer a small taste of KTM’s rich off-road DNA. KTM will soon be offering a number of PowerParts for the 390 Adventure, including a GPS bracket, fork protectors, headlight guard, and a handlebar pad. The company is also working on made-in-India luggage systems for the bike.

The tubular steel trellis frame is suspended at both ends with long-travel units. The front end gets a 43mm USD fork which isn't adjustable in the India-spec model. The rear cast aluminium swingarm might look similar to the one found on the 390 Duke but it is longer on this bike. This swingarm gets a rebound and preload-adjustable monoshock unit, boasting of a rear wheel travel of 177mm. While we would have liked to see spoke rims, alloy wheels are a better bet when it comes to practicality and cost. A 19-/17-inch wheel setup seems like the norm on small capacity adventure tourers like the 390 Adventure. These are kitted out with Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose tyres.

390 Adventure Specifications

While the 390 Adventure is designed to handle rough terrains, it is powered by the same 373cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor that produces 43.5PS and 37Nm of torque on the Naked 390 Duke. The engine works in conjunction with a 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch and a standard quickshifter for the India-spec model. The 390 Adventure features WP suspension up front but with longer travel than the road going sibling. The rear monoshock also gets longer travel and is preload and rebound adjustable.

390 Adventure Features

On the design front, the 390 Adventure to be inspired by the KTM 790 Adventure, which is very close to the company’s Dakar range of bikes. It gets KTM's traditional vertical split LED headlights, on top which is a minimalistic wind deflector. The instrument cluster is similar to the one on the 390 Duke. The bike gets a split seat setup. To tackle river crossings better, it also gets an upswept exhaust.

KTM 390 Adventure Competitors

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.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying 390 Adventure

Q. I want to ask which is the best bike for daily 60km ride daily? Confused between a Thunderbird and Avenger 220. The issue is I found a lot of vibrations in Tthunderbird any other suggestion is welcome.
  • I own a Avenger 220 Cruise. Must tell you the ride is really comfortable and no vibrations or difficulty in traffic. Can easily maneuver in traffic. Two things I don\\\'t like is the long wheelbase makes turn radius more, which becomes difficult while taking you turns or changing to the opposite lane. Second is pick up is average for a 220 cc engine. Rest: Low Maintainence Cost, Spare parts availability, Bajaj Service Center Availability , Pretty Good Mileage of around 25-30 Kmpl and The Best Is You can go on Long Drive in comfort, No Back Pain, Less Vibration, Less Fuel Stops and the best Cruising at 80kmpl comfortable and enjoy the Ride. Now my friend also has a Thunderbird. Same as known problems, Vibrations, Mileage Problem, High Service Charge, comparatively less service center availability and the biggest concern is the spare parts cost. Average Pick Up. Which means you\\\'ll struggle overtaking. Thunderbird although gives you a very much comfortable ride except for the vibrations. For daily commute, I wouldn\\\'t Suggest a Thunderbird. For a daily commute of 60km, you can go for Avenger 220 Street or Cruise. Other options would be NS 200 or Yamaha FZ or New Gixxer is also good I guess.

Q. I am looking for the best bike for my needs. I want one i can drive in the city. My wife rides with my on my bike and wants something to handle to bad roads and speed breakers better. Also we want to ride on long road trips and bring luggage. Don't know which is best BMW G310GS, Himalayan, or the 390 Adventurer. I like the low seat on the Himalayan that my wife could drive it. However it seems too heavy and not enough power. The BMW looks great but seems the suspension is too soft and brakes are week and the electronic package is pretty lame. I don't want anything more than 200kg bike.
  • As per city rides as well as touring, the most suitable option would be Royal Enfield Himalayan. The bike has sufficient specifications and power. The performance is good enough for every type of ride. For a detailed comparison, follow the below link - Compare. Moreover, you can have a test ride of the bikes for a better idea of comfort and ride quality by visiting the nearest dealer in your city. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Dealers.
Q. Which is better for long rides KTM Adventure 390, Royal Enfield Interceptor or Royal Enfield Himalayan - Duke 250?
  • Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a good bike with a smooth and torquey engine, however, the ergonomics limit the long-tour usage of the bike. Royal Enfield Himalayan, on the other hand, features a long-travel suspension setup, upright riding position, and is a comfortable adventure touring motorcycle from the manufacturer. Powering the Himalayan is a 411cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, air-cooled, SOHC, fuel injected engine, which churns a maximum power of 24.83PS and a maximum torque of 32.00Nm coupled with a 5-speed gearbox. If we talk about KTM 390 Adventure, it is actually a tourer, with rough-road capability, which should be enough for most people. Its spacious and comfortable ergonomics, its ability to tackle all kinds of roads and cover distances with ease will win it a lot of admiration and desirability. Aside from the tall seat height it should prove to be a great companion for city use too. So, if you are looking for a comfortable bike and on a budget, you may go for Royal Enfield Himalayan. Otherwise, KTM 390 Adventure would be a more capable bike. Moreover, we'd recommend taking a test ride of the bike in order to get acquainted with the performance and compatibility.
