KTM India is getting ready to launch the brand's entry-level adventure bike, the KTM 250 Adventure in India in October 2020. The upcoming KTM 250 Adventure has already been spotted a few times over the last few months undergoing test runs on Indian roads, complete with touring accessory panniers and top box. And now, latest reports indicate that the KTM 250 Adventure may be launched as early as October 2020, just in time for the festive season, a period which has traditionally seen high volumes of two-wheeler and passenger car sales in India.
The KTM 250 Adventure will be an important model for the Austrian brand, considering it will be the entry-level adventure model and looks more or less identical to the KTM 390 Adventure, a model which has established its own fan following in India. From what we can see from spy shots of the 250 Adventure being tested, it seems to have the same dimensions, as well as share components like the chassis, wheels, suspension and even bodywork with the KTM 390 Adventure.

On the features list, the KTM 250 Adventure is expected to get a TFT display, switchable rear wheel ABS. The KTM 250 Adventure is expected to be priced at around ₹ 2.3 lakh (Ex-showroom).
