KTM 250 Adventure will feature TFT display from 390 Duke
Recently we reported that KTM is working on a new segment of adventure bike based on the 250 Duke. KTM 250 Adventure has been spotted on-road test for the first time. Till now we were seeing the 390 Adventure on test on many occasions for about a year now. The folks at Powerdrift have uploaded the first-ever images of KTM 250 Adventure motorcycle.
The KTM 390 Adventure will launch in India during the IBW 2019 which will be held in December 2019. It is expected that the 250 Adv will launch after the deliveries of 390 Adv is in full swing.
Speaking about the 250 Adv, the bike similar to that of the 390 Adv’s design and components share will also be plenty. The difference can be seen in the images in that the headlight of the bike is a straight lift from the Duke 250. The single halogen-reflector assembly is the main component that makes the bike different than the Duke 390 or 390 Adv for that matter. The front-wheel looks to be a 19-inch unit while the rear, as always is a 17-inch unit.

There will be no doubt that the tyres will be dual-purpose units to make sure the bike is comfortable and safe to ride on the terrains not paved with asphalt. By the look of the images, the suspension doesn’t look longer travel units and might be the regular one you can find of Duke 250.

The instrument cluster is now the TFT unit from the 390 Duke. Thus, the KTM 250 Adventure will sport Bluetooth connectivity among other connected features such as phone notifications and navigation.
This particular motorcycle will be powered by the 248cc single-cylinder engine doing the job on the 250 Duke. In the Duke it is pumping out 30bhp and 24Nm torque and we think the numbers will be same on the Adventure as well but with some different ECU remap for touring and off-roading purpose. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and does 0-100 kmph in under 10 seconds. There is no doubt that the adventure series of bikes from the house of KTM will be BS6 compliant.
Expect the price of 250 Adv to be around Rs 2.2 lakh ex-showroom for the added equipment. The expected price of 390 Adventure is Rs 2.8 lakh ex-showroom. At present, the KTM 250 Duke carries a price tag of Rs 1.95 lakh ex-showroom with dual-channel ABS.
