KTM 390 Adventure spoke wheels with fully adjustable suspension launched; All you need to know
KTM India has launched the much-anticipated 390 Adventure with spoke wheels and fully adjustable suspension in India at Rs 3,60,880 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This recent addition expands the 390 Adventure line-up to four distinctive variants: the standard 390 Adventure, more affordable 390 Adventure X, low seat 390 Adventure V, and new 390 Adventure with spoke wheels.
By equipping the 390 Adventure with traditional wire spoke wheels, KTM has enhanced its off-roading capabilities. A much-needed addition that many adventure motorcycle enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting. The fully adjustable front and rear suspension offers the flexibility to tailor the suspension settings based on the terrain. However, the new version priced about Rs 22,000 higher than the standard 390 Adventure variant. Even with this, the new 390 Adventure with spoke wheels and fully adjustable suspension is a exiting welcome addition to the adventure motorcycle segment in India.
New KTM 390 Adventure: Alloy wheels and adjustable suspension

It is worth mentioning that the spoke wheels version does not feature a tubeless tyre setup; instead, it comes with tube tyres.
While the spoke wheels enhance its off-roading prowess, the fully adjustable suspension provides an additional advantage by allowing riders to fine-tune the suspension according to the terrain conditions they encounter.

Whereas, the rear monoshock from WP Apex offers 10-steps preload and 20 clicks rebound adjustability. Meanwhile, the front forks provide a suspension travel of 170mm, while the rear monoshock offers 177mm of travel.
