Bodywork & Graphics

  • BODYWORK & GRAPHICS: The bodywork on the KTM 390 ADVENTURE is not only shaped to impress, but also to give you high-level performance and comfort on the ride. The sporty graphics highlight the bike’s rally DNA and send a clear message that it is ready for more adventurous journeys.
  • BODYWORK: As minimal as possible and as much as needed. The KTM 390 ADVENTURE features a distinctive KTM-style bodywork, providing excellent ergonomics and an aggressive look inspired by the rally bikes. Ready for adventure, the bodywork is produced in color to help keep its appearance looking fresh, even after scratching. The tank spoilers and rear side panels are slightly wider than the seat for good control and also to reduce wear and tear on the seat. The shape of the fuel tank is optimized to offer the rider freedom of movement and the best control. The headlight mask is as reduced as possible, taking design cues from KTM’s rally bike generation to create a slim, lightweight front end. A low front fender assists with good aerodynamics and keeps spray to a minimum when travelling on the road, while a robust engine guard protects the engine and exhaust when venturing off the road into the dirt.

Chassis

  • CHASSIS: The KTM 390 ADVENTURE is a versatile travel motorcycle, well balanced and purposeful. It has super agile and sporty handling on the street and as well as the offroad capability to take on rougher dirt roads. Even with its large volume fuel tank, the design of the bodywork and the seat allow excellent ergonomics, freedom of movement and comfort. It offers a low seat height, while still providing sufficient ground clearance. The rugged, minimalist bodywork defines the identity of the bike and underlines its hardcore roots.
  • FRAME: Similar to the race proven frame of the KTM 450 RALLY, the KTM 390 ADVENTURE features an ultra-lightweight, yet extremely stable trellis frame. It exceeds all requirements for stability and controllability and is the backbone of this nimble adventurer. The forgiving balance of flex and stiffness, combined with a wheelbase of 1,430 +/- 15.5 mm (56.3 +/- 0.6 in) and a 26.5 degree steering head angle, clearly suggest an offroad oriented layout. It is also the basis of its outstanding straight-line stability and precise and agile steering behavior.
  • SUBFRAME: The removable, steel trellis subframe is fixed to the main frame with 4 screws. It was developed to be compact and lightweight, but strong enough to carry a passenger and luggage, while negotiating the tough conditions that can be expected when adventure riding.
  • SWINGARM: The die-cast, open-lattice swingarm is a signature element of the KTM ADVENTURE range. It is precisely manufactured with an optimized stiffness, while still offering excellent flex characteristics. The rear shock links directly onto the swingarm, reducing complexity and parts, while also enhancing the feeling of the bike’s behavior for the rider. The relatively long swingarm provides enough space for any suitable offroad tire.

Engine & Exhaust

  • ENGINE & EXHAUST: Each adventure is a true test of man and machine. With a proven track record in the Dakar rally, the toughest adventure of them all, KTM has gained the know-how to produce reliable powerplants that deliver top performance across a wide range of terrain. Whether you intend on pushing further, harder or more often, the compact and lightweight engines powering the KTM ADVENTURE range are built to take you to new extremes, and beyond.
  • ENGINE: A state-of-the-art, liquid cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke 373.2 cc engine powers this agile machine perfectly into KTM’s world of ADVENTURE. The engine is equipped with an electric starter and achieves impressive peak power with incredibly punchy torque. Twin overhead camshafts, four valves and electronic fuel injection are integral to the KTM 390 ADVENTURE’s outstanding power and together with a balancer shaft, deliver the highest levels of smoothness. Its lightweight and compact construction facilitates straight intake channels, allowing for a shortened distance for the intake air to flow into the combustion chamber, as well as to the two catalytic converters. Besides the faster movement of air and gases, this also allows the engine to warm up faster. Additionally, the two catalytic converters and the fuel tank ventilation system (EVAP system) improve emission values and prevent fuel vapors from being released into the environment, making the KTM 390 ADVENTURE extremely eco-friendly and compliant with strict exhaust emission standards.
  • SLIPPER CLUTCH: The slipper clutch is a unique feature that saves power and helps in slides. It opens when the engine back-torque becomes too high, preventing annoying rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating and gives the wheel just that little bit of braking for a controlled rear wheel slide. It also closes with the force of the clutch springs when the throttle is opened, allowing the clutch to be pulled with one finger, which saves energy when riding.
  • PISTON: The 89 mm bore piston is DLC coated for extra durability. It performs a stroke of 60 mm, which results in a displacement of 373.2 cc and produces a compression ratio of 12.6:1. The crown is cooled by the oil spray nozzle, while the piston uses a continuous, low-friction, nicasil-coated aluminum wet bushing with open-deck design.
  • EMS/RIDE-BY-WIRE: The 390 ADVENTURE is fitted with a state-of-the-art engine management system featuring the most modern electronic fuel injection system with a 46 mm throttle body. Instead of the throttle valve in the electronic injection system being controlled by a conventional throttle cable, the KTM 390 ADVENTURE uses a ride-by-wire process. With the help of electronic sensors, twisting the throttle grip activates the throttle valve through the use of a servo motor. It electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into the optimum throttle valve position for the current riding situation and for the most linear power delivery.
  • CYLINDER HEAD: State-of-the-art DOHC (Double Overhead Camshaft) technology. The four valves in the cylinder head of the KTM 390 ADVENTURE are actuated, via durable finger followers, by two overhead camshafts. This design is one of the preferred performance solutions of many offroad models, including the successful KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE. It is not only renowned for its extreme reliability, but also offers low friction, thanks to the ultra-hard DLC coating on the finger levers – a solution that makes this engine super reliable, even when pushing for longer at high RPM.
  • GEARBOX: The KTM 390 ADVENTURE is fitted with a robust 6-speed sequential gearbox. The gear ratios fit perfectly to the power band of the 373.2 cc engine and allow you to smoothly select the perfect gear, whether it be flowing street rides or more challenging offroad escapes.
  • A2 LICENSE: The KTM 390 ADVENTURE matches all the A2 driver´s license requirements.

Ergonomics & Comfort

  • ERGONOMICS & COMFORT: The KTM 390 ADVENTURE has several optional features to enhance rider comfort, including a higher or lower seat option and adjustable handlebar height. With lessons learned from KTM’s Dakar Rally success, its performance-oriented, long-distance ergonomics were designed with comfort and control in mind.
  • HANDLEBAR: As on the bigger-displacement KTM ADVENTURE machines, the KTM 390 ADVENTURE is fitted with a high-end, tapered aluminum handlebar that importantly, provides a comfortable riding position and maximum control. The left side features an easily accessible menu switch for the TFT display and for the selection of various different modes and connectivity features. Simply flick "up" and "down" through the menu, select the desired setting with the right button or go a step back with the left.

Software & Electronics

  • SOFTWARE & ELECTRONICS: The KTM 390 ADVENTURE provides you with all the information you need and allows you to ride with optimal control. Even when you're pushing to extend your boundaries, KTM's combination of the most advanced software and electronics allows you to maximize the thrill factor out on any ride. Its racy looks and performance are matched only by the ease-of-use that modern electronics offer. All you have to do is focus on the horizon – and chase it down.
  • KTM MY RIDE: With the KTM MY RIDE system, a smartphone can be tethered to the bike, allowing you to make phone calls, listen to music and use the optional turn-to-turn navigating app, all while keeping the adventure going.
