    Default Another contender: KTM 390 Adventure 2019 launch confirmed

    So we finally have the confirmation about the launch of the much awaited KTM 390 Adventure. KTM India has slated this rally bred adventure tourer for launch in 2019. After the launch, it will create another category of adventure motorcycles in the portfolio of KTM India. KTM already has a bunch of naked streetfighters and supersports.

    As expected, 390 Adventure will draw inspiration from the big daddy 1290 Super Adventure. It would be interesting to see how much has dripped down to the mini adventure. KTM has been a force to reckon with in the Dakar rally so the off road prowess of the Adventure line-up is justified.

    Once launched, motorcyclists of our country who want a motorcycle for long hauls and to take on any roads will have one more option in the name of 390 Adventure.

    Commenting on the upcoming launch Amit Nandi, President, Probiking Bajaj Auto Ltd. said "KTM is a niche brand for a select few. With the 390 Adventure, we would be making our long-awaited entry into the niche premium dual-sport segment which is a very apt segment for Indian roads."

    The new entrant from KTM’s stable isn’t going to face an easy competition. In the past few years we have seen other manufacturers come up with motorcycles in the same category. The latest entrant being BMW G 310 GS, pre bookings of which have already begun. Then there is the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the Kawasaki Versys 300 who are already present in the market.

    It’s going to be fun seeing the new KTM 390 Adventure take on the competition. Both on the road and off the road because they are supposed to conquer the tough terrains too!

    I guess KTM wanted to spoil BMW's launch party and they chose the perfect time to do it, considering the rumours of the prices of the G310 twins i see many rethinking on their prebooking of atleast the G310GS.

    Its Def 100% party spoiler trick from Bajaj, it was no time to announce it when BMW giving final touch to its launch plan this month, Bajaj/KTM could have announced in EICMA in Nov.

    some one above said very right thing , lot of people surely going to cancel there G310 Booking once price announced, instead most of them will wait for 6 months and go for Adv390

    If it looks anything like the 1190, 1290 versions I'd gladly pick it up.

    Hot cakes? No. Will it sell well in its segment? Yes

    A person who spends most of his time On-road will pick up the naked and not an adventure.
