KTM 390 Adventure 2020 India

Christmas tends to come a little early for motorcyclists each year, with EICMA taking place in November rather than December. This year’s show has been quite eventful and packed in a lot of exciting new launches and unveils, and a couple of surprises too. Now that the dust has settled and we have some clarity, we can bring you the  bikes shown at EICMA that will make their way to India soon:


Let’s address the elephant in the room. The 390 Adventure is a motorcycle that has been talked about for years now, with multiple spy shots and test mule sightings along the way. The Austrian manufacturer

 Finally unveiled the much-awaited model at EICMA this year, and it has had a mixed reception so far. The powertrain is identical to that of the 390 Duke’s but the motorcycle features long-travel, adjustable suspension at both ends, more relaxed steering geometry and 19-inch/17-inch front-rear alloy wheel combo.

It also gets traction control and dual-purpose Continental tyres, making it a very well-equipped and competent motorcycle, even if it isn’t quite a hardcore off-roader. However, all these features are expected to significantly drive up the cost of the motorcycle, and we could see the 390 Adventure being launched with a price tag of Rs 3 lakh or more (ex-showroom). Another factor that could drive Indian buyers away from showrooms is the colossal 855mm seat height. KTM is expected to launch the 390 Adventure at India Bike Week next month, along with the 250 Adventure as well, which was recently unveiled online.
