Re: The KTM 390 Adventure Ownership Thread!

Hey! Booked the 2023 KTM 390 Adventure Rally and getting impatient by the hour to bring it home. Meanwhile Iíve been thinking about what Iíd like to upgrade on the bike at the showroom (not a lot of options there really). Has anyone used the premium Navigation plan from KTM? Is it worth it? Do features like live traffic and speed cam alert work (well) in India? Itíd be great to hear from someone who has experience with the feature. Thanks in advance!

Cheers.

And spoke wheels have tubes. And tubes can fail. How much highway-safe will this bike be with tubed tyres since it can carry some seriously good cruising speeds. How durable will these be for road use? I don't want to carry the risk of being stranded.
Thatís exactly the predicament Iím in as well. How I wish there were an option to swap the spoke wheels with tubeless alloys. That would really put my mind at ease (relatively) since I travel alone and I wouldnít wanna get stranded with a flat. I assume that fixing it would be just shy of a nightmare, what with needing to disassemble the wheel and the acrobatics needed to get the tube out. Carrying a portable tyre inflator around always isnít that appealing either.
