KTM has launched its new entry-level adventure-tourer offering, the 250 Adventure in the Indian market. The new KTM 250 Adventure comes with a price tag starting at Rs 2.48 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
Bookings for the new baby adventure motorcycle is now open at KTM dealerships across the country. Deliveries for the same will begin soon.
The new KTM 250 Adventure will be positioned below its larger sibling, the 390 Adventure. The entry-level model is aimed at first-time adventure-tourer buyers in the market. The 250 Adventure offers a host of features and equipment, while also borrowing design cues from its larger sibling.
While the overall design of the KTM 250 Adventure remains largely similar to its higher displacement siblings, there are quite a few changes made to help differentiate between them. The most obvious difference is the engine, which KTM has borrowed from its 250 Duke model.
The KTM 250 Adventure uses the same 249cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. It produces 30bhp and 24Nm of peak torque, paired with a six-speed gearbox. The motorcycle comes with Power-Assist slipper clutch as standard which ensures smooth jerk-free clutchless downshifts.
Other mechanicals includes 43mm WP upside-down forks at the front with 170mm of travel and a mono-shock suspension setup at the back. The rear suspension further comes with preload adjustability while also offering 177mm of maximum travel.
Braking is handled by a large 320mm disc at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear, supported by dual-channel (Switchable) ABS as standard. The adventure motorcycle rides on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear tubeless tyres.
Other standard features on the new KTM 250 Adventure include LED taillights & turn indicators, LCD display, 14.5-litre fuel tank capacity and a seat height of 855mm with slim seats to accommodate all kinds of riders.
Sumeet Narang, President (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto Ltd. said
"The KTM 390 Adventure, which was launched earlier this year has been received very well by biking enthusiasts and has paved the way for the new member in the KTM Adventure model family."
"Based on the KTM 390 Adventure platform, the all-new KTM 250 Adventure is a Travel-Enduro motorcycle that appeals to a wide spectrum of riders from every part of the world."
He further added, "Thanks to its well-thought travel and adventure-focused ergonomics, the KTM 250 Adventure is an accessible motorcycle that offers an enjoyable riding experience for daily commuting and weekend escapes outside the city either on or away from the tarmac."
"Combining top-spec components with the latest technology, the KTM 250 Adventure sets the benchmark in the rapidly growing Adventure segment. The KTM 250 Adventure will be available through exciting & affordable ownership plans too, the details for which will be made available at the KTM showrooms."
Thoughts On The KTM 250 Adventure Launched In India
The KTM 250 Adventure is directly aimed at customers entering the adventure-biking segment for the first time. The 250 Adventure doesn't have any direct rivals in terms of displacement, although it does rival the likes of the BMW G 310 GS in the market.
