The Ktm 390 Adventure has always been a light, agile and powerful enough bike to get around the city and for weekend outings. Consumption is low and it is easy to drive in all situations. For these reasons it has always been a much appreciated vehicle, especially by those who do not have much experience with two wheels. For 2023, the little one from the Ktm house shows new graphics and is enriched with a more off-road oriented version.

The details

The new version that gives a nod to offroad is equipped with black anodized aluminum spoked wheels, 19” at the front and 17” at the rear. As far as the mechanics are concerned, no revolution, just lots of confirmations. The light and resistant steel trellis frame that houses the sparkling 373 cc single-cylinder 4-stroke remains unchanged. The engine features double overhead camshafts, four valves, electronic fuel injection and an anti-hopping clutch. Maximum power is 44 HP with 37 Nm of torque, values ​​that guarantee constant and full-bodied progression even at low revs.

Refined electronics and mechanics

Like its older sisters, the 2023 Ktm 390 Adventure is also equipped with particularly refined electronics: Ride by Wire accelerator, traction control, ABS and dedicated Offroad riding mode. The driver can manage everything via a push-button panel embedded in the left-hand block, combined with a 5-inch color TFT display. From a dynamic point of view, the 390 Adventure relies on a WP Apex suspension package, with single shock absorber and 43 mm fork with adjustable compression, rebound and preload.

Layouts and prices

The 2023 Ktm 390 Adventure is already available at Ktm dealers in the Black/Orange and Blue/Orange colors for the “standard” version and in the Orange color for the model equipped with the new spoked rims. Prices are 7,450 euros (ex-dealership) for the version with alloy wheels, which rise to 7,950 euros fc if equipped with spoked wheels.
