KTM 390 Adventure?

Anyone hear anything about this?

In the latest AMCN, tucked away in a story about variants of the 390 Duke, is the sentence "An Adventure version of the 390 is also on the cards"

Found these as well. Equally vague, but maybe something of interest?

Could be a good little jigger, and based on the pricing of the new baby Dukes would be a good price. (Hopefully)

If the motor has power like the Berg 390 then it would be a sweet setup.

The KTM’s India website marks the Duke 390 with a “coming soon” tag. So we can expect the Duke 390 to arrive into India by March 2013 and the motorcycle will be the second KTM bike in India after doing well KTM Duke 200. The bike will be manufactured locally at Bajaj Auto’s Chakan manufacturing facility.

450 or 500 would be better

Yes tempting, but a little less CC and the savings that go with it some areas would be better for me.

Yep, plus all the bugs worked out of it before you buy it.

So is this just a 350 big bore or a new engine? Otherwise

Looking at the motor itself in the photos it does not look like other smaller KTM motors, and is supposedly an all new motor made for the Dukes.

Doesn't make much sense to me.
You'd be wringing the guts out of it if loaded up and negotiating some hills or speed etc.
I agree with Cruz.....690's the go.....sweet engine.

There is a market for less powerful, lower, lighter bikes that can still do every thing the rider wants to do. Not enduro bikes or overweight underpowered under sprung trail bikes. As more riders get older or injured I think this market will only get bigger.

Seriously Joe, that island is in the middle of f****** NOWHERE, Google haven't even bothered taking a photo of it without clouds obscuring the place (or did you never see the sun?). FFS this summer has got to be a different world.
