The Smallest Adventure - KTM 390 Adventure Review

Small bike. Big deal. Is it the first truly capable small ADV? Or just another half-hearted effort, carefully designed not to offend bigger siblings? [Details below]

    I'll stick with my 07' DRZ400e but man I absolutely love Ryan's videos from the cinematography to the science and especially the wit and humor.

    This video is a satire to the small adventure nature of the bike. Like it’s playground will realistically be around urban settings. But it might just fill a void for those looking to have a bit of ground clearance, knobby tires and an elite European brand with a affordable product.

    Is it just a coincidence that you got a plat in front of Northshore Tire?

    This man is swapping between macro and micro footage faster than a stripper swaps underwear. Bike jumps, cut to 20mm close-up of shock absorbers compressing, cut back to jump. Magnificent cinematography. I havent seen any motor program on TV, ever, with this level of quality. This is why TV has been dead for the past 15 years.

    Really?? This bike has more features, better tires, and is more versatile then the Duke(?) You prefer the Duke? I bought a 21 390 Duke, love it, but find myself wanting to turn it into an ADV or "Mountain Bike" if you will. I'm shocked, watching the video I was doubting my choice... The Old Dukes were way more enduro.

    Awesome video. I ride KTM 525EXC, Adventure 1190S and 390 Adventure which I quickly changed the pegs, slip-on exhaust, bar-risers and quickshift. It's a blast to just take off on and have a good time. Surprisingly good performance and an "everything bike". 5'9'' Been riding and racing for 51 years and it is fun to have a bike that reliable, fun and does well smoking up fire roads, canyon carving and single track. Agree to disagree! HA! Ride on!

    Looks like your major complaint is the foot pegs which can be changed for 200$, This is not something major. Furthermore, this is not a dual sport and people should use it to go on light trails. My major complaint would have been the ground clearance which is a bit low. Nevertheless, this is far better than Duke to go on a trail. When you live in Asia, you need a bike which can handle well holes and rocky trails but not ride on stiff slopes. KTM seems to fill that need with this ADV. Are you sure you are not a bit too definitive in your statement ?

    For anyone who hasn’t seen this bike up close and personal, this video really brings into perspective how freaking tall Ryan is. This is by far the biggest motorcycle under 650cc I’ve ever seen. Looks like a proper adv in person. Its bigger than the cb500x even

    When a bike review channel has some of the best production quality on FIbill you know you’ve found someone with true content creation talent. I only ride dirt bikes occasionally and this man has me binge watching his videos and looking at street bikes.

    Damned, Dude:) you just keep getting better and better at this chit. I was laughing outloud thru the whole vid, and I was alone LOL. The best thing of all tho, was that everything you said, was imho, 100 percent accurate.:) (note: i'm old now , but been riding for about 60 years, over 3 continents, and about as rough and inhospitable terrain as there exists. so lets just say 'experienced' adv rider :)
