Verdict

2022 KTM 390 Adventure

The updates that KTM has brought to the 390 Adventure for 2022 make a small but noticeable difference to off-road riding. What we would have ideally liked are changes to the motor to make the power it makes more accessible and adjustable suspension for better overall damping.

At Rs 3,37,043 (ex-showroom Delhi), the KTM 390 Adventure is Rs 8,600 more expensive than its predecessor. While it doesn’t seem like an unfair increase, the 390 Adventure faces stiff competition from Royal Enfield and Hero, as both bikemakers have big adventure bikes – the Himalayan 450 and the XPulse 400 – lined up for launch.
