Adventure tourer is one of those segments that has witnessed dramatic growth in the past few years. Earlier, brands were only interested in offering a high-end version of these motorcycles but lately, they have realised the importance of entry-level bikes. Lower input cost, affordability and limited maintenance altogether forced KTM to launch the 250 Adventure in India. Interestingly the Austrian bike manufacture has now decided to come up with the 2022 model with two new shades and a price tag starting at Rs.2.35 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
- 2022 KTM 250 Adventure is now available at Rs.2.35 Lakhs.
- It still features a 248cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine.
- Gets two new colour shades as a part of the update for MY22.
2022 KTM 250 Adventure
Not much has changed on the all-new KTM 250 Adventure except for two new colour schemes. To begin with, the updated bike will now be available with either a Factory Racing Blue or Electronic Orange for MY2022.
You guessed it right. These colours were also there on the 390 Adventure and as per the brand, both of them have been continued to the entry-level adventure tourers to offer a similar kind of experience.
Feature-wise, it remains exactly the same with an LED DRL, halogen headlamp, LCD instrument cluster and dual-channel ABS. Thankfully, KTM is still sticking to the smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth and this way, the all-new 250 Adventure is still a practical motorcycle in today’s world.
To manage all the suspension commitments, KTM is using the WP APEX setup to improve the offroad performance. Just like any other adventure tourer, this one also uses a 320mm disc brake at the front and a 230mm disc at the back while being assisted by a dual-channel ABS.
The Austrian brand has desperately tried to retain all the older components on the updated 250 Adventure. As a result, customers who are willing to buy this new adventure tourer will still get a potent 248cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine.
For transmission duties, KTM has used a 6-speed manual gearbox. The introduction of PASC (Power Assist Slipper Clutch) is further known for smoothening the shifting operations.
In India, KTM 250 Adventure compares with some truly capable motorcycles, including Royal Enfield Himalayan and BMW G310 GS.
