KTM 250 Adventure price is fairly lower than both 390 Adventure and BMW G310 GS BS6 and it carries most of the traits of the elder sibling…
Finally, after a pretty long wait, KTM has officially announced the launch of the 250 Adventure in India. This also makes it the first market for the entry level ADV from the Austrian.
KTM says the quarter liter Adventure model has been introduced to latch on the fast growing adventure motorcycle segment and to add to the already existing 390 ADV’s customer base. KTM believes that the 250 Adventure will encourage customers to take first steps towards Adventure motorcycling.
The 250 Adventure is powered by 250 Duke’s 248cc, single cylinder, 4-valve, liquid cooled, DOHC engine which produces 30 hp of peak power and 24 Nm of max torque and is coupled with a 6-speed gearbox.
250 Adventure Price
|250 Adventure||Rs 2,48,256|
This is slightly higher than our expectations but it still undercuts the 390 Adventure by around Rs 55,000 and the G310 GS by ~Rs 37,000.
KTM is offering upside down WP Apex suspension at the front which has a travel of 170 mm whereas the rear monoshock can absorb bumps of upto 177 mm. While the front suspension is non-adjustable, the rear gets a preload adjust feature. Like its elder sibling, the 250 Adventure comes with a 19-17 inch front-rear tyre combination and the rubber used is semi-knobby.
In terms of key features, the baby ADV gets Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC), 14.5 liter fuel tank, and dual channel ABS which comes with supermoto mode (rear ABS gets disengaged – useful for off-roading, etc) which can be engaged through a button on the handlebar.
With this, KTM now has a fairly adequate portfolio of Adventure motorcycles in the affordable range and this expansion also means that bikers now have more choices…
