After introducing the 390 Adventure X, KTM is now readying a new low-seat height variant, dubbed the 390 Adventure V, to join the 390 Adventure line-up in India. While the brand launched the more affordable 390 Adventure X to attract new customers, this new low-seat variant will target shorter riders. Notably, the new adventure motorcycle has already reached at a few dealerships. Thus, we expect KTM to launch the new 390 Adventure V in the country in the coming weeks.

New KTM 390 Adventure V: Details

The upcoming 390 Adventure V will repeatedly borrow its suspension setup from the Duke 390. Therefore, the suspension travel is likely to be 142mm at the front and 150mm at the rear compared to 177mm front and 170mm rear of the standard model. With this, the 390 Adventure V could have an 830mm seat height, which is considerably lower than the standard model's 855mm seat height. Not to mention, expect the lower suspension setup to result in lower ground clearance.
