Popular Austrian two-wheeler manufacturer KTM has launched the low seat variant of the KTM 250 Adventure motorcycle. The ex-showroom price of the new model has been kept at Tk 2.47 lakh. Incidentally, a few weeks ago another adventure bike of the company KTM 390 Adventure low seat variant was launched in India. In fact, these types of bikes have a higher ground clearance and larger wheel diameter, so the seat height is kept a little higher than that of a typical five-wheeler bike. A high seat is one of the biggest problems for shorter riders. There have been numerous requests from Indian customers for a long time to lower the seat height. That is why they took such steps for the convenience of customers.
The new version of KTM 250 Adventure has been launched
So far the seat height of the KTM 250 adventure bike was 855 mm. This would have caused considerable problems for shorter drivers. The weight of the bike is 177 kg and to control it properly, you need to touch the ground. The seat height has been reduced to 834 mm in the new version. The KTM brand claims, as a result, many Indians will be able to use the bike.
