- 2022 Kymco Krider 400 debuts
- Powered by a 399cc parallel-twin engine
- Unlikely to be launched in India
Kymco has unveiled the 2022 Krider 400 for international markets to go up against the KTM 390 Duke.
Beginning with the heart of the matter, the Krider 400 is powered by a 399cc, parallel-twin engine that churns out 43.5bhp and 37Nm and is used as a stressed member in the Truss steel tube frame. While these figures are close to what the 390 Duke offers, the KTM has an advantage when it comes to weight. The Kymco tips the scales at 205kg while the KTM weighs in at 171kg.
That said, the Krider 400 rides on preload-adjustable USD forks upfront and a seven-step adjustable rear monoshock. Its braking setup consists of a 300mm dual-disc setup for the front and a 240mm disc at the rear that is accompanied by dual-channel ABS as standard.
While it does seem like a fitting rival to the KTM 390 Duke, the Kymco Krider 400 is unlikely to be launched in India anytime soon.
