The 390 Adventure Was Born Out Of The Winning DNA Of KTM’s Dakar Racers

Since the debut of KTM’s Duke 390 in late 2012, the model’s 373cc single and steel trellis frame has become a popular platform for additional offerings such as the RC 390 and the 401 Svart and Vitpilen models from Husqvarna (which is owned by KTM). And after years of anticipation, the Ready To Race Brand has now introduced the latest model built around the proven 43.5hp base with the 2020 390 Adventure.

An on/off-road version of the Austrian outfit’s 390, this beginner-friendly motorcycle features a 5” TFT display tucked behind a tall windscreen, a sleek-looking skid-plate, angular tank, and a beefy Dakar-style exhaust. Sporting the unmistakable aesthetic of a KISKA-designed model, the 390 Adventure is visually-inspired by its larger-displaced siblings in KTM’s adventure bike lineup. The 390 ADV’s dirt-going capability is owed to its purpose-engineered off-road suspension setup: a WP APEX mono-shock and set of 43mm inverted forks that offer 6.7” of travel up front and 7” in back. And, with free-way-competent cruising speeds and an ergonomically-designed seat and control setup, the 390 ADV is good for long road stints, too. Available in the brand’s white or orange liveries, KTM is also offering its usual bevy of optional performance parts for the bike. The 2020 KTM 390 Adventure is available now, with pricing starting at $6,199.
