Fulfilling the wishes and popular demand of KTM fans for a fully adjustable suspension and spoke wheels, KTM has also splashed the 2023 KTM 390 ADVENTURE with a vibrant Rally Orange colorway.

The WP APEX suspension hardware is fully adjustable for compression, rebound and preload. This achieves that rare chemistry of tactile grip with the road and confidence-inspiring efficiency for the dirt. Damping at the front USD forks is of 30 clicks each for compression and rebound. The rear mono-shock is adjustable by 20 clicks for a rebound while retaining 10-step preload adjustability. This enables the rider to customize their ride quality, handling, and comfort as per their individual preferences and laden weight.

The bike now has tough yet light spoked wheels (19” front and 17” rear) with black anodized aluminium rims. So, unplanned meetings with roots and stones out on the trail will not bring the journey to a swift halt.

With its intelligent rider aids, the KTM 390 Adventure takes the lead in its class.

The KTM 390 Adventure is loaded with tech & aids such as Motorcycle Traction Control with 3D IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), Quickshifter+, Lean angle sensitive Cornering ABS, Riding modes (street & offroad), Offroad ABS, Ride-by-wire, and LED Headlamps. They are feathered by the 46 mm throttle body and the slipper clutch while being administered through the 5” color TFT-display and intuitive handlebar switchgear.

Ready to Race Performance.

At the heart of the KTM 390 ADVENTURE is the proven, impressively compact 4-stroke 373 cc single-cylinder engine. This uses dual overhead camshafts, four values, a balancer shaft, a PASC slipper clutch and electronic FI for smooth and uninterrupted momentum. Two catalytic converters ensure the system breathes within emission norms. The 14.5-litre fuel tank E-VAP (Fuel Evaporation Control) system also boosts eco-friendliness.

Responsive braking power for confident stops on demand.

The KTM 390 Adventure’s exceptional stopping power is provided by the Brembo BYBRE brakes with 320 front and 230 mm rear discs. Radially mounted callipers ensure braking force is evenly applied to the disc.

The dual-channel ABS system of the KTM 390 Adventure is equipped with aids such as the Cornering ABS and Off-Road ABS. Cornering ABS allows riders to use full braking power mid-corner by continuously monitoring and evaluating the current dynamic state of the motorcycle, enhancing safety and stability during braking. Offroad ABS enables riders to lock up the rear wheel to slide into corners.

The ultimate all-rounder, inspired by KTM’s dominance in DAKAR RALLY.

Drawing inspiration from KTM's experience with the Dakar Rally, the chassis design of the KTM 390 ADVENTURE contributes to its lightweight build and exceptional manoeuvrability. The steel trellis frame design with a bolt-on subframe construction achieves a satisfying blend of both feel, flex and long-term comfort. The upswept exhaust is optimized for prime centralization while providing exceptional water-wading capability.

The angled bodywork serves to protect the bike in impact-prone zones while also positioning the rider in a full-control stance. A two-tire seat, wide all-day footpegs, reach adjustable rear brake lever, and 2-step adjustable windshield completes the KTM 390 Adventure.
