The company now gears up for the launch of the KTM 250 Adventure as it starts arriving at dealerships and unofficial bookings have also opened. To ensure pricing at more affordable levels as compared to that seen on the 390 Adv, the company has brought in a monochrome LCD unit instead of a colour TFT display while the 250 Adv will also not receive traction control, riding modes, cornering ABS and navigation.
The upcoming 250 Adv will be positioned on the KTM 390 Adventure frame and will be powered by the same engine that powers the 250 Duke. This 250cc, liquid cooled engine will offer 30 hp power and 24 Nm torque mated to a 6 speed gearbox. It will receive dual channel ABS and suspension via USD fork in the front and monoshock at the rear. There are no indications on pricing as on date but considering the KTM 250 Duke is priced at Rs.2.09 lakhs, the 250 Adventure could carry a price tag of around Rs.2.35 lakhs. Ex-sh.
