The new 250 Adventure will be located below its larger model, the 390 Adventure. The entry-level model is aimed at first-time Adventure-Tourer buyers.
The 250 Adventure offers a number of features and tools, while also borrowing design indicators from the larger version. Although the overall design of the 250 Adventure is similar to its top 390 Adventure, it has undergone a few changes to help differentiate it.
The most obvious difference is the engine that KTM borrowed from the 250 Duke model. The KTM 250 Adventure is powered by the same 249cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine.
Combined with a six-speed gearbox, the engine produces 30 bhp and 24 Nm of torque. The power-assisted slipper clutch comes standard on the motorcycle, ensuring smooth jerk free clutchless downshifts.
The front features 43 mm WP upside-down forks and 170 mm travel and mono-shock suspension. The rear suspension also offers preload adjustability and 177 mm of maximum travel.
A large 320 mm disc at the front and a 230 mm disc at the rear handle braking and supports dual-channel (switchable) ABS. The bike has 19 – inch front and 17 – inch rear tubeless tires.
Features of the new KTM 250 Adventure include LED taillight & turn indicators, LCD display, 14.5-liter fuel tank capacity, 855 mm seat height, and slim seats.
The weight of the bike is 156 kg. The bike also comes with an adjustable windscreen. It will compete with the Hero Explosion 200 and the BMW G310 GS.
