Rahul Gandhi visits Pangong Lake on KTM 390 Adventure, ahead of 2024 general elections

The political climate in India has been heating up in preparation for the 2018 general elections. Rahul Gandhi’s name has been echoing in the political arena with unprecedented fervour.


However, in this delicate scenario, Rahul Gandhi appears to have opted to take a bike ride to Ladakh to clear his thoughts. On Saturday, he even went to the famous Pangong Lake.

Rahul Gandhi even posted photos from his trip to Ladakh on Instagram, writing, “On our way to Pangong lake, which my father used to say is one of the most beautiful places in the world.” Having said that, the bike he rode to Ladakh was a KTM 390 Adventure.

Furthermore, we anticipate that the model will be the normal model rather than the more basic ‘X’ variety or the more tough ‘SW’ variant.


The KTM 390 Adventure is powered by a tried-and-true 373.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with 42.3bhp and 37Nm of peak torque. This engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox with a bidirectional quick-shifter. Traction Control with 3-D IMU, quickshifter, cornering ABS, multiple ride modes (street & offroad), Offroad ABS, ride-by-wire, LED Headlamps, slipper clutch, a 5-inch colour TFT-display, and more are among the notable features.

The 2023 KTM 390 Adventure motorcycle comes with fully adjustable AP Apex front and rear suspension. The base model is priced at Rs 3.39 lakh (ex-showroom) in India. Having said that, there is also a less expensive ‘X’ edition of the KTM 390 Adventure motorcycle.

KTM has deleted a slew of electronics, including traction, quick shifter, and cornering ABS, to attain such low prices.

In terms of hardware, the new KTM 390 Adventure X motorcycle shares the same chassis, suspension, brakes, powerplant, and body panels as the standard KTM 390 Adventure motorcycle.

In terms of pricing, the KTM 390 Adventure X motorcycle remains priced at Rs 2.81 lakh (ex-showroom) – making it an appealing option for anyone wishing to update their current motorcycle without breaking the bank.
