It looks more purposeful than the outgoing version

The highly anticipated next-generation KTM 390 Adventure has been spotted testing once more. This time there are details about the rear section of this upcoming adventure motorcycle from KTM. Earlier spy shots hinted at a major overhaul. This latest glimpse confirms a completely redesigned machine. The 2024 390 Adventure gets a new trellis frame, sub-frame, swingarm, and a single-piece seat.

In terms of styling, the bike ditches the old look for a more aggressive design. The windscreen is taller for improved wind protection, and the turn indicators and tail section have been redesigned for a sleeker appearance. The instrument cluster appears similar to the TFT unit seen on the new KTM 390 Duke but is mounted on a high-rise handlebar for better visibility during off-road riding.

While the engine is expected to be the same 398.63cc, a single-cylinder unit from the 390 Duke. Likely it will make around 46 bhp and 39 Nm. Rumours suggest it might be re-tuned for better off-road performance with a focus on low-end grunt. KTM might also just change the final drive ratio by giving it different-sized sprockets. 

The suspension on the new 390 Adventure appears to be significantly upgraded. Expect an adjustable USD fork with increased travel. The rear features an offset monoshock, which also appears adjustable. This we could see on the new KTM 390 Duke. The wheels are spoke rims with a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear setup, shod with dual-purpose tyres.

The 2024 KTM 390 Adventure is likely to be unveiled at the upcoming EICMA motorcycle show in Milan (November 5-10, 2024) with a launch expected by the end of 2024 or early 2025. It is bound to become a perfect rival for the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 and the upcoming Hero XPulse 400.
