Default Rumour: KTM working on 250 Adventure for India

According to a media report, KTM is working on a 250cc Adventure for India. It is expected to be positioned below the 390 Adventure, which is yet to be revealed officially.

The KTM 250 Adventure is likely to feature styling that is typical to the brand's Adventure range of bikes. It could get a halogen headlight instead of an LED unit. It might also miss out on the full-colour digital instrument cluster.

The report states that the 250 Adventure is expected to be powered by a BS-VI compliant engine, which is believed to be an updated version of the 250cc unit that powers the 250 Duke. At present, the 250 Duke is powered by a 248.8cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that delivers 30 BHP and 24 Nm of torque and is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The 250 Adventure is also likely to get a revised suspension setup and different sized wheels at the front and rear.

Ohh, no. I was expecting announcement of 125 adventure before 390 adventure.

So much KTM buzz in the last few days. Duke 790 imminent lunch, 390 adventure spotted testing (several times now), 790 adventure spotted (probably just someone from Austria touring in India) and now this.

Hope this is just not a rumour. The 390 adventure will be launched at a premium to the D390 which leaves just the Himalayan as an option for people looking to get an ADV below 2 lakhs. The Duke 250 ADV can just decimate the Himalayan as it will be built much better than the shabby ADV from RE.

This also shows the product strategy of KTM in India. They want to cater to the mass market and offer value for money good quality products. A lot of people, including me, keep crying for KTM not launching their big bikes in India but when a brand sets an image of a value-for-money offerings, it's hard to sell high priced bikes specially when they look very similar.
