The RC 390 is an agile, fast, and sporty bike that’s perfect for country roads and the racetrack.
The KTM RC 390 bike has a new side-mount exhaust system and revised settings that allow it to produce 42.0 horsepower at 9900 rpm. The new slipper clutch allows optimum exploitation of the RC’s impressive cornering ability.
The reduction in trail combined with a steep 23.5-degree rake and short 52.8-inch wheelbase gives the RC 390 catlike reflexes to your handling. The beautiful machine weighs just 365 pounds, affordable compared to other KTM bikes, and delivers better performance.
The RC’s 320mm front disk, which is clamped by a strong radially-mounted four-piston calliper, allows the already lightweight RC to decelerate at a better rate than before.
The KTM RC 390 comes with wider mirrors, a thicker seat, and adjustable levers. The graphics are bolder, and the inclusion of an LED tail light makes the RC a more sustainable street bike.
As the KTM bikes price listindicates, KTM allows customisations with hop-up parts and kits to make it more suited for the street or the racetrack.
