The 2021 KTM 390 Adventure: Small Engine, Big Adventure
The 2021 KTM 390 Adventure may have a small engine, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t handle nearly anything thrown at it. That 373cc, liquid cooled, four-valve single produces 43 HP and 26 lb-ft of torque, giving the little bike more than enough grunt to get over or around pretty much any obstacle.
The Austrian company also didn’t skimp on the goodies on the bike just because it’s the introductory model of their “Travel/Adventure” range for 2021. Dakar-rally proven painted chrome-molybdenum steel trellis frame? Check. Suspension provided by racing partner WP Racing? Check. Under-engine bash plate built in? Check. Full on-and-off-road switchable ABS? Check.
And on top of all that, KTM has equipped the 390 Adventure with the same easy-to-read TFT dash, excellent LED all around lighting (headlight, indicators, brake lights), and lightweight but strong aluminum handlebars that all the big adventure bikes also get. For the small displacement adventure rider, this may just be their perfect motorcycle!
The 2021 KTM 390 Adventure starts at $6,399 USD / $6,999 CAD.
