Duke 390 Adventure

Looks like KTM has a Duke 390 based Adventure model in the cards. Preliminary info has it utilizing a more rugged suspension with longer travel, dual sport tires and a larger fuel tank. Most components should be re purposed from Duke 390 and styling should be similar to the Adventure 990...

SeanN, B7ACKTHORN and hi.rev.asana like this.

Looks heavy. No need to dual front disks. I'd consider it over the Duke390 though provided it's not too tall in the seat.

At least they look a bit meaty in the rear which is always a good thing

Looks to me like the front tire is slimmer than the back tire. Is that true, and what is the point?

Would the Adventure 390 be more or less expensive than the Duke 390?

The pic above is a 990 so rims tyres suspension and overall look will be different.

So you wash out in the sand like every other 'adventure' bike that supposedly has done the Paris - Dakar.

although I'd think the underslung exhaust would be a concern for off road riders...
