So this is IT! Images and info about the upcoming KTM RC390 sports bike has finally hit the web world. All these details come from KTM Canada website, where these were accidentally published earlier today. It may be noted that the RC390 will make its first public outing at the EICMA show in Milan in November ’13.

While you can go through detailed information below, allow us to quickly tell you that the bike has a max power of 43bhp and a weight of just 147kgs. All this means that the bike has a power-to-weight ratio of 0.2kW-per-kg.

Following are the full details (as per KTM Canada website)

TELESCOPIC FORK

The KTM RC 390 has upside-down front fork from WP Suspension. These have a 43 mm outer tube diameter, which is the same as the bigger RC8 R.

FRAME

While the RC390’s frame is visually similar to that of the Duke sibling, it has been modified to suit the supersport ergonomics and dynamics. The steering head angle has been increased to 66,5 degrees, which results in a shorter trail, shorter wheelbase and increased ground clearance.

INSTRUMENT

The bike gets a 100 percent digital LCD display which has a gear indicator, service reminder information and all the usual stuff you expect from a supersport racing machine.

SWING ARM

The light alloy swingarm, along with a WP shock absorber, provides extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability.
