The KTM 390 Adventure was well-received ever since its global introduction at 2019 EICMA.
Despite the success two years later, the Austrian manufacturer actually ran multiple test mules of different designs, one of which includes a rally variant similar to KTM’s 450 Rally.
The test mule features a taller front section, with an instrument console and handlebar-mounted higher compared to the production 390 Adventure.
In the latest development, reports in India suggest that KTM is ready to roll out the production version of the 390 Rally.
The Rally edition is expected to offer better ergonomics, control and balance, especially in off-road conditions.
Spied photos show a taller clear windscreen to enhance riders’ protection against dirt and debris and improve riding ergonomics.
However, major parts appear largely the same as the stock 390 Adventure including the 373cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that makes 43hp and 37Nm.
It is worth noting that the upcoming Rally variants will feature a new off-road mode that was recently introduced on the 2022 KTM 390 Adventure.
Riding on a steel trellis frame, the 390 Adventure utilizes WP APEX 43mm USD front forks and WP APEX monoshock at the rear.
Despite the rugged looks, the Rally editions are expected to maintain the 19-inch front and 17-inch rear alloy wheels with the option to upgrade to wire-spoke wheels from KTM Powerparts.
Meanwhile, the braking system comprises of ByBre 320mm disc at the front and 230mm at the rear. Bosch dual-channel ABS is offered as standard.
