KTM 390 Adventure spy shots have been captured in Europe and from the looks of it all the rumours about the bike seem to have come true.
The KTM 390 Adventure is based on the KTM 390 Duke and has been inspired from KTM’s Enduro R, but is more likely to be launched eventually as an adventure bike rather than an enduro bike. The latest spy shots are said to have been taken outside KTM’s test facility in southern Europe.
The KTM 900 Adventure will likely pack the same engine as that of the KTM Duke 390 – a 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid cooled engine that makes around 43bhp power and 35Nm of torque. The engine on the 390 Adventure may be tuned for more power and torque lower in the revs.
From the looks, the bike is minimalistic with the front fender being inspired from the KTM Enduro R. The long travel suspension is likely to have around 180mm of travel and the spoked wheels are also larger than the Duke 390 – possibly getting a 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear. The swingarm is all-new too and looks beefier, compared to the 390 Duke.
The latest spy shots of KTM’s mini-adventure bike have emerged right after a string of manufacturers unveiled their mini-ADV bikes at the EICMA show in November, including the BMW G 310 GS, Kawasaki Versys-X 300 and Suzuki V-Strom 250. And now, with the spy shots of the under-development KTM 390 Adventure, Rose Bowl Live Stream there seems to be no doubt that KTM will now join the mini-ADV bike bandwagon as well.
The KTM 390 Adventure is likely to be unveiled at the 2017 EICMA with a possible launch in early 2018. Once launched, the KTM 390 Adventure will compete against the likes of the BMW G 310 GS.
