Oct, 2020 - by CMI

The expected price of the 250 Adventure ranges between US$ 3085.36 and US$ 3219.51 (Rs 2.3 and 2.4 lakh).

In early August 2020, KTM launched the BS-VI compliant Duke 250 in the Indian automotive market at US$ 2786.18 (Rs 2.09 lakh). The anew Duke 250 costs around US$ 53.33 (Rs 4,000) more than the outgoing model. KTM is also planning to launch the KTM 250 Adventure in India, which is expected to be launched by the end of 2020. Now, the company has begun testing the production-spec KTM 250 ADV. The 250 adventure is based on its elder sibling, the KTM Duke 250.

KTM plans to expand its adventure bike line-up with all-new Adventure models. However, there are some changes in design as well as technical specifications. Both the ADV 250 and the ADV 390 shares the same seat height of 855 mm, and ground clearance remains identical too at 200 mm, as well as both the same body panels and chassis. Visually, the 250 ADV looks quite similar to the KTM 390 ADV. The tail-section, belly pan, radiator shroud, extensions, and fuel tank also appear to be the same.

The 250 ADV features a halogen headlamp in place of the full-LED setup and is expected to be available in new color schemes. The all-new Adventure 250 will be equipped with a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled 248.8 cc engine that delivers 30 hp of power and 24 Nm of peak torque. The engine unit is expected to be borrowed from the Duke 250 and will be paired with a six-speed transmission system. Moreover, the 250 ADV gets off-road Anti-lock Braking System and the same thin-film-transistor (TFT) display as the ADV 390 and Duke 390. The expected price of the 250 ADV ranges between US$ 3085.36 and US$ 3219.51 (Rs 2.3 and 2.4 lakh).
