KTM Nepal has launched the all-new premium segment KTM 390 Adventure motorcycle in Nepal for a price of Rs. 9.99 lakh. The KTM 390 Adventure is formed upon its naked sibling — the Duke 390.
Although having similar specs to the Duke 390, the 390 variant borrows its design cues from the 790 Adventure model. This cool looking off-road bike offers a stronger and longer suspension, a larger fuel tank of 14.5l, and dual-purpose tires alongside an upright seating position.
The bike also boasts KTM’s traditional vertical split LED headlights and not so over the top wind deflectors. The instrument cluster is alike to what you would see on the 390 Duke. Aesthetically, the bike has sharp tank shrouds, raised handlebars, split seat setup, and a new upswept exhaust.
Much like the Duke 390, the 390 Adventure gets its power from the same BS6 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that churns out 43.5PS and 37Nm of torque paired with a 6-speed transmission alongside the slipper clutch and a standard quick shifter.
It also has WP suspension upfront but with longer travel than the on-road sibling. The bike has a longer travel in the rear mono-shock as well and its preload and rebound adjustable.
Apart from that it also has features like ride-by-wire EFI, cornering ABS, traction control, and a counter-balancer.
The new KTM 390 Adventure will compete against the likes of Royal Enfield Himalayan, within the same price category, in the market of Nepal.
