Ktm: India is the First to Get the 390 Adventure "Low Seat" V

Take the suspension of a 390 Duke, shove that into a Team Orange adventure bundle with a 32.5″ seat height (and a slightly lower ground clearance), and you’ve got KTM’s new small-capacity caperer: The 390 Adventure V, or “Low Seat” variant.

This machine arrived in India’s markets this week, along with the good news that the 390 Adventure V will cost the same as its other sibling, the 390 Adventure X; according to coverage from RideApart, the bike retails for Rs 338,746, or $4127.56 USD, a significant discount from the $7,399 USD price point in the Americas and one that is likely to ensure the bike’s success for the upcoming seasons.

Per the original KTM 390 Adventure, the “Low Seat” The 373cc, 4-stroke single-cylinder heart of the Austrians still powers the V variant, producing 43 hp and 27 lb-ft of torque, and this year’s addition of the Street and Off-road modes improves the frame’s handling in straight lines.

KTM now has a bike that satisfies the rising demand for easily accessible adventure bikes by adding ByBre brakes and Continental TKC 70 rubber to go along with the dual-channel Bosch and ABS. Coupled with the surprising fact that India/America height standards are now separated by a mere inch (via Sprint Medical and WiseVoter), the low-to-go 390 Adventure V has yet to be recommended for further countries, though the word is that India is “the first country to receive the updates,” hinting that she won’t be the last.

At the end of the day, there will always be a market for a bike that incorporates features that previously required a kit installation; well done, KTM.
