KTM 390

KTM has introduced the 390 Adventure V in India, a new iteration of its popular adventure bike with a low seat height to appeal to shorter riders. 

  • the low seat height allows for shorter riders to enjoy the 390 Adventure. 
  • the new variant offers the same engine specification as the standard. 

To achieve the approachable 830-millimeter seat height, KTM swapped out the bike’s entire suspension setup and installed the forks and monoshock of the 390 Duke naked bike. 

The result is an adventure bike that’s much more approachable than the standard model. However, the reduced ground clearance may be a downside for tackling technical off-road terrain.

The 390 Adventure V is powered by the same 373cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine producing 44 horsepower and 27.2 pound-feet of torque. It also flaunts sophisticated technology such as a full-color TFT display, cornering ABS, and traction control. 

Essentially, apart from the lowered suspension setup, the 390 Adventure V is exactly the same as the standard 390 Adventure, even sporting the same graphics and colorways.

The low seat height option will cater to budget-conscious riders who previously struggled with the tall seat height of the 390 Adventure. The bike’s affordability and performance-oriented features are expected to make it a popular choice in India’s adventure bike market.

A new spy shot has confirmed that Austrian motorcycle company KTM is working on a more hardcore 390 Adventure-type motorcycle.

It might look similar to the standard KTM 390 Adventure, but if you look closer, you could notice that it comes with an all-new swingarm and suspension setup.

The revised swingarm looks to be of CNC construction; however, whether it will make its way to production remains to be seen as it could simply be used for the prototype testing.

Another new component is the beefier engine brace, which looks like an aluminium construction.

Other significant changes include a bigger 21-inch front wheel – 19″ on the 390 Adventure – and proper wire-spoke rims instead of the alloy rims available on the base 390 Adventure.

While further details remain scarce, reports suggest that KTM might unveil the new motorcycle in 2023.

  • KTM India has confirmed that the new 2019 KTM 390 Adventure will be ready for production next year.

  • The new entry-level adventure bike will be sharing the same platform as the 390 Duke and RC390.

  • Expect the new 390 Adventure to be officially launched at the end of the year during EICMA 2018.

A post on by a dealer of BMW Motorcycles has welcomed a 20% downpayment on the 310R with deliveries expected to begin in June this year.


As for the price, there has been no clear indication of that but there is word from a recent dealer conference that prices are set to begin from RM25,000 up till RM30,000 with a long list of accessories set to take those prices up higher should you wish to do so.


We know that the G310 will eventually spawn a mini sports adventure touring model similar but much smaller from the BMW GS. There will also be a full sports model similar to the RR (read about it here) and the regular naked model we see in the pictures here.

The official launch event is said to be happening sometime in March.


Once introduced, the new G310R model will take on the likes of the KTM 250 and the 390, Kawasaki Z300, the Yamaha MT-03 and others.

The G310R will be the most affordable BMW motorcycle ever, and is powered by an all-new 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine with four valves and two overhead camshafts together with electronic fuel injection.


It outputs 34hp at 9500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7500rpm. We had an informal introduction with the G310R in Milan late last year, you can read all about it by clicking here.
