Have Adventure, will travel.
Every motorcycle has a different vibe to it. Some make you fall in love. Others make you want to go corner carving. And then there are some that lure you into pulling out your cellphone and taking a picture of it every time you look at it.
The KTM 390 Adventure makes you want to take a road trip. Maybe it’s the spacious and upright seating. Maybe it’s the pliant ride. Or maybe it’s the ability to sit at three digit speeds without complain. But, after spending a month with the 390 Adventure in the city, it was obvious, it was itching to stretch its legs.
And that got us thinking. The 390 ADV is more about interstate travel and long hours in the saddle. But, it’s not necessarily about catching-every-butterfly, counting-every-tree, and interpreting-every-cloud kind of road trip. It’s more about getting to faraway places in the shortest time possible. And if that’s the case, what’s the kind of upgrade it might need.
Now, we have made some choices here. But, we aren’t claiming that these are the best options, or the only ones you should go for. One must treat it more like a direction that suits the 390. And of course, we will fill you in regarding the rationale behind our choices.
