KTM has offered a critical upgrade to its popular adventure tourer motorcycle- KTM 390 Adventure. The upgrade is in the form of spoked wheels. The spoke wheels will offer an extra off-road capability to the motorcycle and add more value to it. Apart from that, the motorcycle also gets some cosmetic upgrade.
The KTM 390 Adventure gets wire-spoke rims that are of the same size as the alloy wheels. However, the wheels are not tubeless but they offer a great advantage over the alloy wheels in off-road conditions. The wired rims are stronger than the alloy and there are few chances of it bending during off-roading.
On the other hand, the main frame is now finished in KTM orange and exhaust pipe gets black finish. The company has also played a bit with the body graphics. Apart from the above-mentioned changes the motorcycle remains the same. The engine as well as the other parts of the KTM 390 Adventure remains the same.
