KTM India has announced the launch of the 2022 390 Adventure in our market. The latest iteration of the motorcycle benefits from several styling and feature upgrades over its predecessor. Here we list the top five highlights of the 2022 KTM 390 Adventure.
The design remains unaltered, and the 2022 KTM 390 Adventure retains the split-style LED headlight, a short windscreen, knuckle guards, split-style seats, 14.5-litre fuel tank with a claimed range of 400km, and a side-slung exhaust. While the design remains similar, the colour palette gets a revision. The 2022 KTM 390 Adventure is available in two colours – KTM Factory Racing Blue and Dark Galvano Black. The KTM Factory Racing Blue features a triple-tone finish that comprises blue, orange, and white colours. The Dark Galvano Black, on the other hand, has a relatively stealthier look. Both colourways get brand new graphics as well.
The 2022 model gets updated electronics in the form of two modes for the Traction Control system – Street and Offroad. KTM says that the Offroad mode gives the motorcycle a degree of rear-wheel slip to enable even easier use of the bike in loose or wet terrain. Other features retained from the previous model include full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster, cornering ABS, and a quickshifter.
The mechanical specifications remain unchanged, and the 2022 KTM 390 Adventure retains the BS6-compliant, 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-valve, DOHC engine that churns out 42.3bhp of power and 37Nm of peak torque. The motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox.
The suspension setup and braking hardware are identical to the previous model. Thus, the suspension tasks are handled by WP APEX upside-down front forks and a preload-adjustable rear monoshock. The anchoring duties are performed by a 320mm disc at the front and a 280mm rotor at the back – both grabbed by ByBre-sourced callipers. However, the 2022 model gets five-spoke alloy wheels instead of six-spoke units on the old model. KTM claims that the new wheels are lighter and stronger than the previous version.
All the updates mentioned above have affected the ex-showroom price tag, and the 2022 KTM 390 Adventure is now available at Rs 3.35 lakh as against Rs 3.28 lakh previously.
