VIDEO: KTM RC390 features and benefits explained

Added in: KTM


The KTM RC390 is just weeks away from its official launch. The test mules of this fully faired version of KTM 390cc naked motorcycle, the 390 Duke, were caught several times. We also spotted photographs showcasing a warehouse full with RC390 motorcycles. But here is a video that explains the new RC390 in details along with its technical specifications and features.

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.
