KTM’s Baby Adventure Is Quite Pricey!


It might be quite a nice touring motorcycle though

  • It gets the same foundations as the 390 Adventure.
  • It skips on equipment such as LED headlight, TFT screen and bi-directional quickshifter like 390 ADV.
  • Bookings are already underway at KTM dealerships across the country.

Just a day after getting up close and personal with the bike, KTM has officially launched the 250 Adventure in India at Rs 2,48,256 (ex-showroom Delhi). The pricing is definitely on the higher side especially when you consider that the Royal Enfield Himalayan is almost Rs 50,000 cheaper than it. Also, the BS6 BMW G 310 GS is just Rs 35,000 dearer than the 250 ADV and the Beemer is a larger and slightly more capable motorcycle.

KTM has plonked the 248.8cc single-cylinder engine from the 250 Duke into the 390 Adventure’s foundations. The engine continues to put out 30PS and 24Nm with no changes expected to the bike’s gear ratios or the final drive. The split tubular steel trellis frame that houses this engine is suspended by WP Apex suspension units that have decent travel (F/R: 170mm/177mm). Even the 19-/17-inch alloy wheels come shod with MRF MoGrip Meteor FM2 tyres. Bybre braking units too remain the same.

For those of you who thought that the 250 Adventure would be slightly more manageable than the 390, you will be disheartened. The 250 ADV has the same 855mm tall saddle height as well as a 177kg kerb weight. We expected the 250 ADV to at least be slightly lighter in comparison as it runs with a smaller motor.

Nevertheless, we are quite keen on getting astride the baby Adventure. Hopefully, it should have a few tricks up its sleeve that the spec sheet doesn’t reveal.
