GOTCHA: Here’s the latest photo of KTM’s 390 Adventure prototype undergoing Indian road tests


LAST YEAR we brought you the first spy shots of the upcoming 390 KTM Adventure bike being put through early-doors road tests by the Austrian company – now another photograph of the bike, this time in different trim and with some chassis changes, has surfaced in Mumbai.

This is the latest photo of the KTM 390 Adventure to appear. Trick.

The bike is powered by KTM’s punchy single cylinder, 373cc motor that’s currently used in the company’s 390 Duke meaning that the small Adventure bike should kick out around 43bhp with 37Nm of torque when it’s released as part of the 2020 model year range later this year.

What we can see from the photos posted to the website Thrust Zone is that the tiny Adventure offering has LED daytime running lights, a new top fairing that’s more flared out than has previously been seen, a new windscreen to offer more protection to the rider and the large pillion seat remains.

The new photo also shows serious engine protection bars and the previously wire-wheels are changed for new cast, multi-spoke options. The front wheel looks considerably larger than the back and could possibly be a 21-inch item which should make the small bike very stable on the road – luggage frames are now in place on the latest version of the bike.

This is how we first showed you the bike last year.

The bodywork, now clad in full prototype camouflage paint, also looks more beefy than the fairly sleek all-black version we snapped before, apeing the firm’s 1260 Adventure bike which is a best selling model for the Austrian company. Expect to see the 390 Adventure make it’s official debut around October this year and be on sale in early 2020.
