Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying 390 Adventure

Q. I currently ride R15 V1, looking for update. How is KTM 390 adventure, easy to ride in city?
  • As, on the road, the Adventure feels familiar, fast, and friendly. You will enjoy covering long distances on this immensely. The 390 motor had proved itself to be a capable long-distance companion and in this package, it just emphasizes the point. This Adventure 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. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more:- KTM 390 Adventure: Road Test Review.
Q. I am a little confused between 390 adventure, BMW G310GS and RR310. I live in Gurgaon, and this will be my sole ride which will handle daily office commute of 40 km and monthly trips to the Himalayas(deeper parts).Till now, I was riding CBR150r.

Q. I own a 2014 KTM duke 390, and I really like it, but now I am looking to buy an entry level premium adventure motorcycle. I’ve shortlisted the BMW G310 gs and the KTM Adv 390 while keeping the BS6 RE Himalayan on the back of my mind. Which one do you think, would be a better addition to my garage? (I won't be selling my OG 390).
  • As per your requirements, we would suggest you go with the Royal Enfield Himalayan. The 2021 Himalayan still features the same BS6-compliant 411cc single-cylinder engine which produces 24.31PS and 32Nm. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard which is switchable for more fun. The bike offers rather comfortable ergonomics and brilliant credentials for touring and off-roading this adds to the Himalayan’s comfort and confidence to venture into the unknown. Moreover, Royal Enfield has introduced 2021 Himalayan with more features and more comfort. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more -BMW G 310 GS vs KTM 390 Adventure vs Royal Enfield Himalayan.

Q. Which is better in off road RE Himalayan Or KTM Adventure 390?
  • Both are great off road but the ktm is little bit biased towards the road. Depends on where you plan to spend most of your ride on. On highways the ktm would be more than happy to cruse on triple digit speeds but off road the sudden and robust response of torque from the royal enfield 411cc long Stoke engine is something else , but it does not performe as good as the ktm on the highway.
  • See RE Himalayan have a good shockers n feels comfortable in off road patch while KTM 390 have stiff suspension but quality wise KTM is best
  • Re himalayan,bcz if you see the wheel then understood alloy wheel is very risky for off road.it can break or bend
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. Himalayan or 390 Adv for daily commute and weekend getaways? I am not sure of 390 adv as I mostly ride in city and wont do high speeds. main concern on Himalayan is reliability and tube tyres. please advice.
  • I had used for regular office commute. Very easy to zip through the city traffic. You will not feel the weight of the vehicle even in very tight traffic. I had done a 2300 km road trip in a 7 day trip. Absolutely no issues. No back pain..
  • Both are good bike & both are not made for daily commuting. Check some other lighter bike for daily commuting. Out of these 2 bikes, Himalayan is much better than KTM 390 Adv in every aspect other than speed.
  • On which Himalayan or 390 adv??
