Austrian motorcycle maker KTM is all set to introduce the faired version of its successful naked motorcycle 390 Duke, the RC390. The RC390 is expected to be launched on September 9 and some of the dealers have already started accepting the bookings for the motorcycle.
The KTM RC390 will be powered by the same 375cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that is found on the Duke 390 that will churn out around 45 PS of power and 35 Nm of torque. The engine will come mated to a 6 speed gearbox. The RC390 will also share the trellis frame, Metzeler tyres, instrument cluster and electrical from the 390 Duke. The RC390 will get a full fairing and clip-on handlebars. The RC390 will also get dual projector headlights and Daytime Running LED lights.
We expect KTM to price the RC390 between Rs 2.3-2.4 lakhs. You can reserve your own RC390 at a booking amount of Rs 30,000. But you have to be lucky to find a dealer who has accepted the bookings.
