KTM 390 Enduro Tyre

KTM 390 Enduro and Adventure variants launch soon, spied testing in India

KTM enthusiasts, gear up! The much anticipated KTM 390 Adventure has been spotted once again and this time around there’s a twist. Spy shots reveal not one, but two different test mules, giving us a glimpse into what could be a big refresh for the adventure motorcycle.

The standard 390 Adventure variant boasts a vertically stacked projector LED headlight setup, accompanied by tube-shaped LED DRLs. Adding to its rugged appeal, it sports a transparent visor with a vent.

Meanwhile, the KTM 390 Adventure Enduro takes a slightly different route with a smaller LED headlight setup, possibly foregoing the visor altogether. Both versions showcase a tall beak in lieu of a conventional front fender, along with tweaked front-side fairings tailored to their respective designs. Notably, the Enduro edition flaunts a flat seat, while the standard variant opts for a single-piece scooped unit, further distinguishing between the two.

Hardware wise, both test mules come equipped with essential off-road accessories including an engine crash guard, bash plate and a saree guard. Upon closer inspection, it’s evident that the Enduro version is fitted with block pattern tyres, while its counterpart sports dual-purpose rubber. These tyres wrap around 21-inch front and 18-inch spoke wheels.

Underneath the exterior lies a set of adjustable upside-down front forks and a new off-set monoshock. Braking duties are handled by single discs at both ends, complemented by ABS for added safety. Features such as traction control, ride modes, ABS modes and a fully digital TFT with smartphone connectivity are expected to enhance the riding experience.

Powering the upcoming 390 Adventure lineup is a 399cc, liquid-cooled engine borrowed from the 390 Duke, delivering 45.3 BHP and 39 Nm of peak torque. Paired with a 6-speed gearbox and equipped with a bi-directional quickshifter.

As for the price point, sources suggest that the standard model could be priced around Rs. 3.5 lakhs, with the Enduro trim commanding a slightly higher price tag of about Rs. 3.8 lakhs (ex-showroom). Once launched, these flagship KTM adventure bikes will compete with the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 and the BMW G 310 GS.
