The pricing details are as mentioned below
Ex Showroom in West Bengal: Rs 3,00,376
Road Tax + Registration : Rs 31,000
Insurance(5yrs full Nil Dep):Rs 34,761 After one month and for riding it about 1100kms these are the things which I would like to elaborate:
Firstly, the sitting posture and the riding comfort is really spot on. however, a softer seat(like
) RE Himalayan
would have made things much better.I am 5ft 11 inches tall so the seat height(855mm) is not an issue. The front suspension is perfect but the rear suspension feels stiff on solo rides. That, depends on the riders weight as well.
The digital console is like love at first sight and provides lot of information which includes real time mileage too.
Coming down to the fuel efficiency, on highways it offers around 25kmpl. Average speed being 95kmph. In city 19kmpl (
) yet to calculate manually. as per the display The engine feels very refined.
My favourite part – I liked the most was the braking performance. Braking was really crisp so was the ABS.
What can be better:
Low visibility in night of the LED headlamps
The windshield after adjusting rattled and the height of windshield isn’t sufficient.
Lack of double stand will make things difficult while cleaning the chain.
Crash guards require modification.
Spoke wheels can make the bike more adventure centric. But, in my case since am not a off road enthusiast so alloy wheels are ok.
First servicing was done within a month after 988km and the cost around Rs1500 which included engine oil change along with oil filter.
After first service I intended to test the top speed but unfortunately it didn’t happen because of the lock down. Needless to say that the motorcycle is yet to be tested to its full potential. So this is by far my experience regarding the KTM 390 adventure.
