Of late, KTM has picked up an aggressive pace in widening its portfolio for the Indian market. Especially when it comes to 390 Adventure, the company has gone full throttle and introduced a slew of new variants to entice buyers from across the price range. These new additions have come at a time when Royal Enfield is giving the final touches to its upcoming Himalayan 450. We take a close look at the features offered by new variants even as the 390 Adventure range offers a 373cc, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, all-LED lights, and brakes as standard part of the equipment across the range.
Standard KTM 390 Adventure
Priced at Rs 3.39 lakh, Standard KTM 390 Adventure gets the TFT display with added capabilities such as Bluetooth connectivity, traction control, Cornering ABS and quick-shifter. This is the variant that has been in the market for quite some time and keeping the interests of buyers alive in the model line-up.
KTM 390 Adventure V
Specifically designed to meet the requirements of short riders, 390 Adventure V features a low seat height of 830mm which is 25mm lower than the 855mm of the standard model. The suspension travel has been reduced to achieve low seat height and in terms of price and features, this V variant is similar to its Standard counterpart.
KTM 390 Adventure X
Adventure X is the recent addition and priced at Rs 2.81 lakh, it’s the most affordable model in the KTM 390 line-up. Being a base variant, it is ripped off many features although the bike is quite attractive when it comes to its price point. Riders get an LCD unit for the instrument cluster (as opposed to the colored TFT unit on higher variants) and there’s no fancy stuff such as quick-shifter and traction control on offer. Thankfully though off-road ABS has been offered that will help riders to conquer some difficult terrains without burning the hole in their pockets.
KTM 390 Adventure wire-spoke variant
As the name suggests, this top-of-the-line variant features Metzeler Tourance tyres on wire-spoke rims for offering maximum traction and stability to riders. In addition, this variant offers adjustable suspensions which means you can adjust the ride settings for both city rides and offroad expeditions. Priced at Rs 3.60 lakh, the variant is the most expensive in the 390 Adventure lineup.
