The KTM Adventure 390 will be available with either orange or white accents on the otherwise black bodywork. There’s a bash plate and a shield around the engine to protect it during off-road riding. It will only be upon launch when there will be more clarity if the bikemaker has altered the gearing to suit the character of this adventure motorcycle. With a wheelbase of 1,430 mm, it will one of the longest KTM motorcycles to go on sale in India. For those who feel that this KTM should’ve come fitted with a 21″ front wheel, the plus side to a 19″ wheel is that it offers better on-road dynamics. The bike should also offer power parts and touring accessories upon its launch in India. Our guess is that it will ask for about INR 3 lakh ex-showroom.
