KTM announced the launch of the 2022 KTM 250 Adventure today. Bookings commence at KTM showrooms across the country for the new 2022 KTM 250 Adventure, priced at ₹2,35,000 (Ex-showroom Delhi). Finance options are also available with EMI’s starting ₹6,300.
Built on the same platform as its elder sibling the KTM 390 Adventure, the quarter-liter variant is a powerhouse of performance with its 248-cc state-of-the-art DOHC four-valve single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine delivering 30PS power and 24 Nm of torque.
The 2022 KTM 250 Adventure is available in 2 new colorways – KTM Electronic Orange; KTM Factory Racing Blue.
Commenting on the launch of the bike, Sumeet Narang, President (Probiking), Bajaj Auto Ltd. said: “The 2022 KTM 250 Adventure is the Travel-Enduro motorcycle that appeals to a wide spectrum of bikers across the country. Thanks to its well-thought travel and adventure-focused characteristics, the KTM 250 Adventure is an accessible motorcycle that offers an enjoyable riding experience for daily tarmac commutes and weekend off-road escapes. Combining top-spec components with the latest technology, the KTM 250 Adventure had set a benchmark in the rapidly growing Adventure segment in India.”
The machine draws on KTM's rally experience to ensure it is capable when the terrain gets a little rougher. Inspired by the race-proven frame of the Dakar Racer - the KTM 450 RALLY, the KTM 250 Adventure features an ultra-lightweight, yet extremely stable trellis frame with a bolt-on sub-frame which exceeds all requirements for stability and controllability and is the backbone of this nimble adventurer.
A whopping ground clearance of 200mm along with segment-leading suspension travel of 170mm on the front and 177mm on the rear makes the KTM 250 Adventure willing to take on any terrain. The forgiving balance of flex and stiffness, combined with a wheelbase of 1430 (+/-15.5 mm) and a 26.5o steering rake angle, clearly suggest an off-road-oriented layout.
The KTM 250 Adventure draws on the WP APEX suspension in the front and rear. The rider seat is narrow in the front making it easier to reach the ground while providing a tested mix of grip and easy movement. The high-end, tapered steel handlebar provides maximum control while ensuring a comfortable riding position. The KTM 250 Adventure’s windshield is an efficient deflector which can be mounted in a lower or higher position to suit the rider’s size or needs. The wide and robust foot pegs come directly from the off-road models.
The KTM 250 Adventure features a 248 cc state-of-the-art DOHC four-valve single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. The BOSCH electronic fuel injection in conjunction with a DELL’ORTO 38 mm throttle body system guarantees perfect throttle response while delivering 30 PS (22 kW) power and 24 Nm torque. The Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC) combined with the 6-speed gearbox allows for smooth and jerk-free shifting by controlling engine braking and rear-wheel chatter.
