KTM Duke 390 Adventure to be launched in India in December
The much anticipated bike is to be first showcased in the Milan Motorcycle show in Italy. In India, it is to be unveiled at the Indian Bike Week 2019, at Goa, Dec 6-7.
KTM Duke 390 Adventure is to be launched in India during Indian Bike Week 2019, at Goa in early December, a month after its global debut at the EICMA (Milan Motorcycle Show) in Italy.
The Adventure model is expected to come with the same 373 cc engine on the KTM Duke 390, which is of 44 hp and 37 Nm, but with a different tuning, according to reports.
The model is expected to have a 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear alloy wheel. Leaked images suggest that it may come with accessories for adventure riding.
The bike might come in two variants: One, a combination of adventure and street, and the other, which is more inclined towards adventure with minor tweakings like spoke wheels, wind shield, adventure tires and other accessories.
The Duke 390 Adventure will be the KTM's first BS6/Euro 5 model to be launched in India.
The bike is expected to be priced below the BMW's adventure model, a costlier competitor in the market. The Adventure model might be price around 30-50k higher than the Street version, which costs around 2.3 lakhs.
All eyes are on the Adventure models of KTM as there are very few bikes catering to the needs in this segment. Other options available in the market is RE Himalayan and BMW 310 GS.
KTM has recently launched its Duke 790 Street model, the most powerful motorcycle introduced by the company in India.
