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