Latest Spy Images: All-New KTM 390 Adventure Spotted Testing Once Again in India – Important Details

The next-generation KTM 390 Adventure is anticipated to hit the Indian market by the year’s end, featuring substantial updates compared to its predecessor.

In recent years, there has been a surge in interest in the adventure motorcycle segment, particularly in the 350 to 450 cc range. This has prompted manufacturers to explore new avenues, with dual-purpose adventure tourers gaining significant traction. The upcoming release of the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 has intensified competition in this segment, where it competes with models such as the KTM 390 Adventure, Yezdi Adventure, and BMW G310 GS.

The highly awaited update to the KTM 390 Adventure has been spotted undergoing testing in India and abroad. Notably, KTM expanded the 390 Adventure lineup in April 2023 with the introduction of the entry-level X variant, which has been well-received by consumers.

Recent sightings of the new model in India have revealed substantial details. As expected, it will be powered by the potent 399 cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine borrowed from the latest 390 Duke, delivering 46 PS of power and 39 Nm of torque. A redesigned front end, featuring a distinctive floating beak, gives the bike a more purposeful look. Improvements to the wheelbase and ground clearance are also evident.

In addition to enhanced ergonomics and a taller transparent windscreen, the 2024 KTM 390 Adventure features a muscular fuel tank with increased capacity and a headlamp design reminiscent of the next-generation RC 390, inspired by its naked 390 sibling. Adopting the underbelly exhaust system from the 390 Duke contributes to a sleek side profile.

However, questions remain regarding its performance on challenging off-road trails, requiring further evaluation. Notable updates include a sharper rear end with a new tail lamp, a five-inch TFT instrument console borrowed from the 390 Duke, split seats, and grab rails. Suspension duties are managed by fully adjustable USD forks and a monoshock rear suspension.

Braking capabilities are bolstered by front and rear disc brakes, complemented by a dual-channel ABS system. The test mule spotted had 19-inch front and 17-inch wheels, though a 21-inch front wheel option may also be available. Expect the price to exceed that of the Himalayan 450, reflecting the incorporation of advanced features and technologies compared to the current model.
