Royal Enfield, beware! KTM's new 390 Enduro is on the horizon.

In recent months, there have been sightings of the upcoming KTM 390 Adventure, causing quite a stir online. However, it appears that KTM has more in store, with the sighting of an entry-level enduro-type ADV alongside the 390 Adventure in India, the home of KTM's partner Bajaj Auto. Here's what we know so far:

1. Different Design:

The 390 Adventure and the 390 Enduro have been spotted together, showcasing distinct designs. While the 390 Adventure features dual vertically positioned projectors and angular DRLs, reminiscent of the new 990 Duke, the 390 Enduro boasts a squarish headlight without a windscreen.

2. Body Design:

The 390 Adventure sports a muscular tank cover and shrouds, while the Enduro opts for a more minimalistic and slim design. The fuel tank lid on the Enduro appears raised, possibly for better knee grip during stand-up ergonomics. Additionally, the Enduro features a flat rally-style saddle compared to the scooped, touring-oriented seat on the Adventure.

3. Off-Road Features:

The 390 Enduro comes equipped with a 21-inch front wheel and long-travel suspension, following the typical KTM style. Its trellis chassis, slim subframe, and adjustable WP USD forks and monoshock suggest ample travel for off-road adventures. The bike also rides on off-road-biased tires for enhanced performance.

4. Engine Specifications:

Both the 390 Adventure and the 390 Enduro are powered by the same engine found in the 390 Duke.

  - Cylinders: Single cylinder
  - Bore X Stroke: 89 X 64 mm

With these features, the upcoming KTM 390 Enduro promises to be a versatile and capable off-road adventure bike, complementing the existing 390 Adventure model.
