The KTM 390 Adventure is one of the most awaited motorcycles in the Indian market for a long time now. Ever since KTM announced the adventure version of the extremely popular 390 Duke, the enthusiast fraternity is waiting for the bike to arrive in the Indian market. Even though the KTM 390 Adventure is quite far away from its launch date, someone has already modified the bike into an insane Adventure bike. Here is all you need to know about it.
What are the changes?
The modified bike was spotted at a KTM service centre in Vikhroli, Mumbai. Even though the owner was not present at the service centre, the person who is making the video shows all the details of the modified bike. The modification is based on the previous-generation Duke and it gets completely revamped with a list of new accessories.
Specific details of the changes are not available but from the video, we can make out that the bike gets a new gas-charged rear suspension. A new front fork increases the overall ground clearance of the bike by a good amount. The bike also gets an aftermarket exhaust that now is positioned below the seat instead of the underbelly exhaust that was available with the last generation 390 Duke.
Other changes include a new larger rear sprocket that increases the acceleration, new headlamp set-up, new handlebar and new brake callipers from Nissin. The bike has been modified with off-roading in mind and it also gets a front radiator guard, knuckle guards, brake levers and off-road spec foot pegs. The spoked wheels and the tyres have been changed to knobby ones for better grip on loose dirt and slush.
It is not known if the power output of the bike has changed. But looking at the modifications, we can safely say that performance modification is a possibility. The stock 390 Duke produces a maximum of 43 Bhp and 37 Nm, which is more than enough for a street bike in India. This modification job can serve as an inspiration to many who do not want to wait too long for the arrival of the KTM Adventure 390.
