Do you want a small KTM adventure bike but don’t have Rs 3 lakh to spend on the upcoming 390 Adventure? Well, KTM’s got you covered because we’ve caught a heavily-camouflaged prototype of the 250 Adventure undergoing testing.
The tell-tale sign that the bike caught testing is the KTM 250 Adventure is the halogen headlight seen on the front of the test mule. Also, unlike the 390 Adventure, the bike in question sports a non-adjustable USD fork. The prototype pictured here features a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel, a luggage rack at the rear and a more upright riding position than the 250 Duke. It also sports a reworked exhaust system which will most likely make the engine Euro5/BS6 compliant.
What’s interesting is the presence of a TFT display on this test mule, a feature that is absent on the 250 Duke. Hence, it also seems likely that the production bike will get Bluetooth connectivity, at least via an accessory module if not as a factory-fitted feature.
This is the first ever sighting of a 250 Adventure prototype, and it’s likely that KTM might unveil the 250 Adventure sometime next year, most probably at the 2020 EICMA motor show. This will also help the Austrian brand focus on the 390 ADV that’s set to make its global debut next month at the EICMA in MIlan. The 390 ADV is is expected to be launched in India by late 2019. While the upcoming 390 Adventure is expected to be priced between Rs 3 lakh to Rs 3.2 lakh (ex-showroom), the 250 Adventure is likely to be more affordable by around Rs 50,000. This is almost identical to the current price gap between the KTM 250 Duke and 390 Duke variants. Stay tuned for more updates.
