2023 KTM 390 Adventure revised, new spoked wheels – paultan.org

Updated for the new year is 2023 KTM 390 Adventure (priced at RM30,800 in Malaysia for 2021). The 390 Adventure now comes equipped with black anodized aluminum wheels and spoke wheels: 19-inch front and 17-inch rear.

This is combined with a choice of two color schemes: black/orange and blue/orange. The version with cast wheels is also available if desired and KTM touts the 390 Adventure as one of the most versatile in its range, capable of both “epic” and “everyday” riding.

No change in the engine room, with the 390 Adventure powered by an EFI-fueled 373cc liquid-cooled DOHC four-valve single-cylinder engine. Power is claimed to be 44PS at 9,000rpm and 37Nm of torque at 7,000rpm, passing through a six-speed gearbox fitted with PASC slipper clutch.

Following in the footsteps of its older brothers from the catalogue, the 390 Adventure gets a full suite of electronic driving aids. These include ride-by-wire throttle as well as Bosch 9.1 MP engine management with traction control and cornering ABS.

There are two riding modes, Road and an Offroad mode which allows more rear wheel slip with Offroad ABS which disables braking intervention at the rear wheel and reduces the braking effect at the front. Braking is done by a Bybre four-piston caliper on the front 320mm disc, while at the rear you get a 230mm disc and a single-piston floating caliper.

WP provides the suspension with a 43mm WPApex front fork and a WP Apex monoshock at the rear, giving 170mm and 177mm of suspension travel, respectively, with 200mm of ground clearance. The 390 Adventure has 14.5 liters of fuel in the tank and weighs 172kg wet, while seat height is set at 830mm with higher seat options available.
