KTM 390 Adventure

It was only two years ago in 2020, when I rode on gravel for the first time. I put together a CRF250L and it was nice, but not enough power when on the street riding to our off road destinations. So I put together an Africa Twin, and it was nice but way too much for a beginner off road... so I sold them both.

The search was on to find something that would be light (similar to the CRF250L)... but able to at least do 80mph without being so stressed. I found a deal on a 2020 KTM 390 with 700 miles on it, and thus started my next look into adventure.

As usual, I set out to make changes that would make the bike more unique for me, and this profile outlines the journey and results. I will update these pages as I add new stuff, so check back often to see the latest.

The Design Journey

As usual, prior to ordering stuff I like to take time to do a prototype in Photoshop... to give me an idea of what I want to end up with.



I created this prototype to give me an idea of what I wanted to shoot for.
