KTM will release a refreshed version of its 390 Adventure LAMS dual-sport model that debuts new features better suited to off-road riding.

The bike’s 373cc single-cylinder engine now generates 32kW and 37Nm, which translates to a 5Nm boost compared to the outgoing model.

Also new is an enhanced electronics suite with an OFFROAD rider mode that allows for more rear-wheel slip, while more robust wheels go from six- to five- spokes to increase stiffness.

The 2022 KTM 390 Adventure range is also distinguished by new graphics options.

Tipping the scales at 172 kilograms (wet), the 390 Adventure boasts a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio and comes standard with a TFT dash, LED lighting and smartphone connectivity.

The bike also benefits from lean-angle sensitive traction control, off-road ABS and cornering ABS.

WP Apex suspension offers 170mm of travel at the front and 177mm at the rear, while braking is managed by Brembo subsidiary Bybre, with a 320mm disc at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear.

Other standard bits include adjustable handlebars and windshield, a 14.5L fuel tank and Continental TKC 70 tyres.

The 2022 KTM 390 Adventure rivals the likes of the BMW G 310 GS ($8462 rideaway) in the learner-approved adventure bike segment. Pricing for the updated 390 Adventure has yet to be locked in.

KTM’s dual-sport range also saw updates to its middleweight 890 Adventure and full-sized 1290 Super Adventure this year, while the road-oriented 1290 Super Duke GT sports tourer will get a refresh in February.
