KTM, the World’s largest & India’s fastest-growing premium European brand, announced its 2023 KTM 390 ADVENTURE model at a price of Rs. 3.60 Lacs (Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
Launched three years ago, the KTM 390 Adventure has firmly established itself as the most aspirational adventure bike driven by its exceptional performance, modern technology, and riding dynamics. These motorcycles are a tribute to KTM’s dominance in the Dakar Rally, with 19 wins and 22 podiums since 2001. The new 2023 model will be sold alongside the existing 390 Adventure and 390 Adventure X variants.
What’s new in the 2023 edition of KTM 390 Adventure?
Fulfilling the wishes and popular demand of KTM fans for a fully adjustable suspension and spoke wheels, KTM has also splashed the 2023 KTM 390 ADVENTURE with a vibrant Rally Orange colorway.
The WP APEX suspension hardware is fully adjustable for compression, rebound and preload. This achieves that rare chemistry of tactile grip with the road and confidence-inspiring efficiency for the dirt. Damping at the front USD forks is of 30 clicks each for compression and rebound. The rear mono-shock is adjustable by 20 clicks for a rebound while retaining 10-step preload adjustability. This enables the rider to customize their ride quality, handling, and comfort as per their individual preferences and laden weight.
The bike now has tough yet light spoked wheels (19” front and 17” rear) with black anodized aluminium rims. So, unplanned meetings with roots and stones out on the trail will not bring the journey to a swift halt.
The KTM 390 Adventure is loaded with tech & aids such as Motorcycle Traction Control with 3D IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), Quickshifter+, Lean angle sensitive Cornering ABS, Riding modes (street & offroad), Offroad ABS, Ride-by-wire, and LED Headlamps. They are feathered by the 46 mm throttle body and the slipper clutch while being administered through the 5” color TFT-display and intuitive handlebar switchgear.
