After revealing the all-new 390 Adventure at 2019 EICMA, KTM has revealed the much-awaited 250 Adventure on its official website. The 250 ADV is a smaller sibling of the 390 ADV and would target buyers looking for an adventure motorcycle at a limited budget. The motorcycle looks largely similar to that of the bigger Adventure sibling.
Powering the KTM 250 Adventure is a 248.8cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that also powers the 250 Duke. Paired to a 6-speed gearbox, this engine is capable of producing 30bhp of power and 24Nm of torque. Based on the steel trellis frame, the motorcycle gets WP-sourced 43mm inverted front forks and a monoshock unit at the rear.
The front and rear suspension of the 250 Adventure come with 170mm and 177mm of travel, which is significantly higher than the ones on 250 Duke (142mm/150mm). The KTM 250 Adventure is estimated to be priced somewhere between Rs 2.25 lakh and Rs 2.40 lakh. The motorcycle comes with a ground clearance of 200mm, which is 15mm more than the 250 Duke.
The KTM 250 ADV has a seat height of 855mm, which is 25mm more than the 250 Duke. The bike has a rake angle of 63.5° and is 10kg heavier than the 250 Duke. For braking, the motorcycle gets 320mm front disc and 230mm rear disc. Switchable dual-channel ABS is also available as standard. The motorcycle rides on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels shod with MRF Mogrip Meteor-FM2 100/90 and 130/80 section tyres at the front and rear respectively. The KTM 250 Adventure is fitted with a colour TFT console that is compatible with Bluetooth connectivity. Rider can adjust the windscreen height depending on the riding conditions such as off-road, city riding, etc. It comes with standard halogen headlamp instead of full LED headlight. The bike also misses out on features like petal discs, traction control and adjustable suspension, which are available in the bigger sibling.
It is expected that the KTM 250 Adventure could be launched in India on 6th December 2019 at the occasion of the India Bike Week in Goa. The company will also introduce the 390 Adventure at the 2019 IBW. KTM will launch the BSVI compliant version of the motorcycle.
