The next-generation KTM 390 Adventure has been sighted once again during testing providing a glimpse of the bike's features. Notably the new model is anticipated to launch in 2025 and comes with several updates.
Key Features and Changes
- TFT Display: The spy shots reveal a TFT display on the upcoming 390 Adventure, similar to the one introduced in the Gen 3 KTM 390 Duke and Svartpilen 401. This modern display enhances the bike's instrumentation and user interface.
- Subtle Design Changes: The design philosophy of the 2025 model has shifted towards a rally-style machine, departing from the current tall sport-tourer aesthetics. The subframe has been redesigned, possibly to accommodate the weight of a pillion and luggage.
- Slimmer Tail Section: The new model features an even slimmer tail section compared to the current version, contributing to its updated design.
- Lower Seat Height: Addressing concerns of shorter riders, the 2025 KTM 390 Adventure is expected to have a lower seat height, making it more accessible. The dip from the fuel tank to the single-piece seat suggests a reduction in seat height.
Market Competition and Pricing
The current KTM 390 Adventure is available in various configurations and is priced between Rs 2.81 lakh and Rs 3.61 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The upcoming model will compete with other adventure bikes in the market, including the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Honda NX500 and BMW G 310 GS.
While the exact launch date has not been confirmed, the sightings of the next-gen KTM 390 Adventure indicate that its launch is imminent. Enthusiasts can anticipate the official unveiling and market availability in the coming months.
The 2025 KTM 390 Adventure aims to bring a refreshed design improved features, and potentially enhanced ergonomics to cater to a wider audience. As adventure biking continues to gain popularity, KTM's updates to its renowned adventure bike are poised to make a significant impact in the market.
