Impossible. If anything this bike will be previewed first at Milan first this year and even then it will most likely not be the production version.

If it does come out, i am sure not complaining.

I think its the sheer pressure by BMW twins that have nudged KTM to plan a release of much awaited KTM 390 adventure.

With the massive success of Duke 390 and practically no competitors in this adventure segment, this bike will sell like hot cakes but lets see how KTM prices it?

or is it too little too late?

Default KTM 390 Adventure India launch confirmed; to arrive in 2019



"Austrian bike maker KTM has officially confirmed the launch of the much awaited 390 Adventure for the Indian market. The KTM 390 Adventure has been in the pipeline for a while now, and we first heard about the model from Bajaj Auto, Managing Director, Rajiv Bajaj last year at the launch of the RC range. The KTM 390 Adventure will be the smallest adventure motorcycle from the manufacturer and will be sold alongside the Duke and RC range in the bike maker's stable. The new offering will take on the niche yet growing adventure motorcycle segment which offers the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the upcoming BMW G 310 GS..."

Now this should lead to BMW Motrrad think twice before pricing the G310GS as "Premium".

Since in all probability the "Bajaj-KTM" 390 Adventure would be priced "Sanely" when it gets launched.

Having tasted how wonderful its to ride an on/road 2 Wheeler (Impulse), I am definitely looking forward to this.

That is great news.

I intend to get a bike with straight riding position as my shoulder pain gets worse with long rides. I currently use a CBR 250 for long rides and Suzuki Fiero (2000 model) for short city rides. Even if BMW GS 310 is priced well, I think service will be a challenge for at least some time until they sort out the network and capacity. Hope adventure bike will be suitable for office commute as well.

Done! When are they opening Pre-Bookings?

I really hope that they price it 20% higher than the RC, to weed out the 15 yr. old yuppies from the customer base. That's the one reason I haven't picked up a Duke yet.

Don't worry. Adventure/Trail Riding isn't exactly for the ones high on "teen hormones". One doesn't get to impress the pretty ones on mud / dusty trails.

Noticed a peculiar thing. The Cylinder block in Adv model is oriented backwards unlike the regular dukes.

Because the picture is of the 1290 Adventure.

And the reverse inclined single cyclinder you notice is just one of the V format twin cylinders seen outside the fairing.

Great. I think KTM/Bajaj is the perfect company to come up with such a bike, due to their accessible pricing and wide-spread service centers. I also echo above thoughts, that it should come with reasonable premium to weed out street-wannabes from serious tourers/adventurers.

Oh dang! Just noticed the 1 before the 2. All this while i thought the image was what the final production model would look like with 390 written on the tank! My bad.

After waiting for ages, finally it is official. Made my day. I hope now I can fulfill all my salivating dreams with the 390 Adventure . KTM, please bring it in the very beginning of 2019 rather than pushing the launch any further.

Pretty sure the bike (at least the prototype) will be on display @ EICMA. Hope its more of a 50:50 (on : offroad) bike than the much more road oriented GS
