KTM’s younger sibling from it’s ‘Adventure’ series has been launched in India today. The 250 Adventure comes with a price of Rs 2.48 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It’s powered by a BS6-compliant 248cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine (EFI) that produces 29.5 bhp and 2.44 kgm of torque. This quarter-litre motor comes mated to a six-speed transmission with Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC). In tune with its off-road theme, the KTM 250 Adventure rides on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear cast wheels with tubeless tyres.
Stopping duties are handled by a 320mm front and 230mm rear BYBRE disc brakes with ABS by Bosch. There’s even an additional off-road mode that disengages the ABS for the rear wheel. Other than that, there’s the WP APEX suspension. The front is a WP APEX upside-down 43 mm front fork with 170 mm of travel, while the rear is a mono-shock with 177 mm of travel and adjustable preload. Oh, and the fuel capacity is 14.5 litres.
KTM PowerParts add ons will also be available as optional extras. These include GPS brackets, radiator protection grille, crash bungs, headlamp protection, and handlebar pads. Do note that the 250 Adventure misses out a quickshifter, traction control and TFT instrument cluster, when compared to its elder sibling – 390 Adventure – which is priced just over Rs 3 lakh (ex-showroom). What do you make of KTM’s smallest ADV?
