KTM 390 Adventure Spied With Official Accessories
Appears to sport minor changes from the test mule spied in India
- We were the first ones to spot the bike with accessories in India.
- This test mule appears to be spied in Europe and sports minor changes.
- This includes a different set of panniers, top box and more.
It’s been a busy few days. After the 2020 KTM 390 Duke, the upcoming 390 Adventure was spied recently sans camouflage. This time around, it sported official accessories as well. Now, we were the first ones to spot the bike in India along with all the accessories. So what’s different here?
For starters, KTM seems to be testing the bike in Europe. Additionally, the accessories on this test mule appear to be different from what we saw in India. For example, the top box appears to be a tad smaller, KTM also seems to have replaced the hard panniers with saddlebags. Then there is the radiator guard and aluminium bash plate, both of which sport KTM badges.
Now that we have a better angle of the bike, small details can be made out. The 390 Adventure appears to pack the same TFT instrument console and switchgear as the 390 Duke. However, we do hope that KTM adds additional touring specific features to it. Perhaps GPS navigation?
Additionally, the Euro-spec bike seems to be equipped with Metzeler Tourance tyres as opposed to Continental TKC 70 spotted on the Indian test mule. We now have confirmation that the large windscreen will, in fact, be non-adjustable.
Coming to the heart of the matter, the 390 Adventure will pack the same engine as the KTM 390 Duke. However, we expect the 373.2, single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine (43.5PS/37Nm) to be BSVI-compliant. That said, we expect a slight difference in tune to suit the ADV’s character better.
Overall, the spied bike doesn’t seem to be too different from the test mule spotted here. It will be interesting to see what accessories KTM offers in India for this mini ADV. As we’ve mentioned before, KTM is likely to debut the 390 Adventure at this year’s EICMA motor show. India launch will follow early next year.
