KTM didn’t have to go all the way to bring the Adventure 390 back up to date. The little adventurer saw the light of day quite recently in 2020, so that minimal adjustments are sufficient for the 2022 model.
The cast wheels of the 390 Adventure no longer have six, but five spokes. To be able to handle all the blows, the rims are also more robust than before. Naturally, the single-cylinder behaves so neatly that it can bear the approval of the Euro5 inspectors. Finally, the new traction control has been given the Street and Offroad positions. Unsurprisingly, the electronics allow more wheel slip in off-road mode. Responsible for that wheel slip is the 373cc heavy single-cylinder that still produces a maximum of 43 hp and 37 Nm of torque. As with most new models this year, we are still waiting to see what the sales price will be.
Want to see the new 390 Adventure in action? This video by Baja winner Quinn Cody and world traveler Paolo Cattaneo may release you from the entrenched idea that a tough one is yours even in the dirt. Still not convinced? Read here the first test of the 390 Adventure from 2020. Seen it? Then we can now move on to the innovations.
