Seen here on this page are a couple of KTM RC390 images, which have been taken by our friend Rahul Sali, in Pune. These new images further consolidate our belief that Bajaj-KTM has been working overtime with testing the upcoming model and the KTM RC390 India launch will happen shortly! There are good chances that along with the KTM RC390 India launch, also taking place would be the KTM RC200 launch in India.

In essence, the KTM RC390 would be a faired variant of the 390 Duke, which means that the RC 390 will come with a full front fairing and slightly sportier ergonomics. As the spec sheets reveal, the KTM RC 390 would boast of a max power of 43 hp and the bike will have a dry weight of just 147 kgs. It doesn’t take a great mathematician to calculate that the RC390 would boast of segment leading power to weight ratio. It is very probable that the RC390 would have a stiffer suspension than the 390 Duke, which should help towards better handling and track manners. What makes the deal even sweeter is the fact that  local manufacturing and high parts sharing with the Duke will enable Bajaj-KTM to price the upcoming model ultra competitively. The KTM RC390 price in India is expected to be around INR 2.20 lakhs.
