The KTM 250 Adventure has been spotted on test again, and this time, we have a clearer look at its front fascia. As seen in the spy image, the upcoming KTM 250 Adventure will feature a halogen headlight that will be of the same design as that of the KTM 250 Duke. The 250 Adventure will also pack a headlight mask along with windscreen, although the latter is not visible on the test mule in the latest spy photograph.
Apart from a relatively lower-spec headlight setup, the 250 Adventure will look identical to the 390 Adventure. Thus, the 250 Adventure will come equipped with 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels, fuel tank extensions, split seat setup and a single-piece pillion grab rail. The crash guards and saddlebag stays/pannier mounts, too, will be similar to the 390 Adventure, and both motorcycles will share the same optional luggage solutions.
The previous sighting of the 250 Adventure had shown a TFT-style display instead of an orange backlit LCD console like on the 250 Duke. While the details are scarce, KTM will keep some differences in the functions. The Bluetooth connectivity option, for example, may come as an optional extra on the 250 Adventure.
It will be safe to assume that the upcoming 250 Adventure will share its engine specifications with the 250 Duke. The quarter-litre adventure tourer will arrive with a BS-VI compliant 248.8 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor. This engine, in BS-IV guise, pumps out 30 hp and 24 Nm on the 250 Duke.
Braking duties will be performed by a 300 mm single disc with four-piston radial fixed calliper and a 230 mm single disc with a single-piston floating calliper at the front and back respectively. The safety net will most definitely comprise dual-channel ABS, although it will be interesting to see if the 250 Adventure will benefit from supermoto mode (disengages rear ABS). The 250 Duke, for reference, does not feature the supermoto mode.
Hardware specifications will include 43 mm inverted telescopic forks and a preload-adjustable mono-shock at the front and rear respectively.
KTM will offer the 250 Adventure at a relatively lower price tag than the 390 Adventure. Thus, we expect the 250 Adventure to arrive in the INR 2.5 lakh-2.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) price bracket. The arrival details are scarce, although a recent report claimed that the Indian launch of the 390 Adventure will take place in December this year. The 250 Adventure should arrive around the same time.
