Height problem

1 year ago by Ajinkya2,945 views

Really wanted to buy 390 Adventure but disappointed during the test ride because of the 855mm seat height which is really not for anyone below 5.8ft height and I am 5.5 :( which made it impossible for me to ride the bike in traffic. KTM is maybe launching height lowering kit which will reduce seat height by 25mm but its only on KTM US Power Parts website and the showroom doesn't know anything about it so Might need to go with 390duke instead.

    A bike for beginners wanting to explore beautiful India. Good mileage, good suspension. Awesome feeling when you rev it up. good for off road, great budget bike with all the premium specs, sturdy and reliable. Power shifter traction control abs and a cool display. Cons- A little bigger for guys 5 ft. 4 or less but can adjust once they ride it for a while. Can heat up sometimes in the traffic but who cares if you like touring. Sometimes low torque issues but manageable.

    The KTM 390ADV is a powerful Adventure Machine at this price range. First owner of KTM 390ADV in our city Bongaigaon (Assam) Bought this beast last September 2020. The bike gives you amazing confidence while doing both off-road & on-roads. Few problems are less ground clearance of 200mm and faced few times gearshift problem.

    Some people are grumbling about seat height but they should think how bike will get ground clearance of they will not raise seat height....This bike is flawless, quality is awesome...Only problem is alloy wheel but it does it job well. I use it occasionally for offoading and it performs extremely good. It shock absorbers provide confidence on road and off-road. I will highly recommend it.

    Well, i already own Jawa 42 its a very good bike, but this ktm looks are awesome and we don't have to worry about quality, it will be always be good. But main thing is we have to consider 3 things, 1) price of the bike 2) it should suit our personality and needs (when you sit on a bike it should suit you) 3) maintenance of the bike. Well as per price of the bike its almost 4L so many people cannot afford but they can afford by financial options, for that you should have min 25k salary in bank account. My main suggestion is go with 1.2L down payment and 30 months EMI so you don't have to brag the EMI payments forever, your EMI will be 10k per month. Next thing is it should suite you that means its gonna suite almost every one, well every one asks about 855mm seat height. As per my experience you dont have to worry abou it if you are 165cm and above height because the bikes weight is less so it will be easy to manage, but in heavy traffic conditions little practice needed. As per my suggestion if you are 5.5 ft you can ride any bike with 800mm seat height in combination with 200 kg bikes, buy you can say this 390 adventure is having 855mm? But here bike weight is lower than 200kg. So dont worry about it. But its better to go and check in the showroom and sit on it ,feel it. Another one is maintenance, that means service cost and wearing part replacement, well i dont think most of us is going to do 500/1000km every day. Mostly we do like 20km each day for our needs, and if we are buying this 390 adventure that means probably we have spare bike for daily commute. But still maintenance matters so it will be like 3000rs for service for each visit, and spare parts will be almost same cost like other bikes above 2L price tag. Electronics will be little costly. But above all this is going to be my 2nd bike. You need to clean chain regularly otherwise you will get irritating sounds, mileage will be avg 25 to 30/35 depending on the riding style, but dont worry it will give you 28/30 in traffic conditions as well. High way you can expect more than 30. If you like bikes you wont be hesitating about cost, seat height, maintenance and all, you will find a way to enjoy raiding. It doesn't matter how much cost it is or how much cheap it is. Bike will be bike.

The KTM 390 Adventure was possibly one of the most awaited launches of the decade. It was launched with much fanfare and we even got to experience it first at an off-road park, followed by a few days of riding in the city and on the highway. While most of you have gone...
