About RC390 [2014-2016]

The KTM RC390 is a middleweight supersports motorcycle which replaced the Duke 390 as the flagship motorcycle in India. Currently, the fastest motorcycle in KTM's Indian portfolio, the RC390 is a faired version of the naked Duke 390 with minor alterations to its chassis which improve its riding dynamics.

The RC390 gets an angular faring and windshield which not only enhances its aesthetic appeal, but also reduces the motorcycle’s drag coefficient. The new clip on handlebars, step seats and the repositioned footrests and pedals, which are now forged, give the motorcycle a sporty riding stance. The RC390, like the Duke 390 gets a fully digital instrument panel which displays a whole bunch of read-outs like the gear position, rpm reading, service reminder information, fuel consumption and range among others. The rear of the RC390 gets a very interesting design feature- a matte black rear seat which resembles a racing bike’s rear cowl.

Built around a steel trellis frame, similar to the one in the Duke, the engine serves as a stressed member. The front wheels get 43mm inverted forks while the rear gets a monoshock that is directly linked to the alloy swingarm. This setup increases the motorcycle’s stiffness and stability to give the rider the feel of a supersports motorcycle.

The RC390 is powered by the same single-cylinder 375cc engine which is also found in its naked sibling. The engine is liquid-cooled and gets electronic fuel injection to ensure good performance, respectable economy and reduced emissions. It pumps out 43bhp and 35Nm of torque and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox, which gets the same gear ratios as the Duke 390.  Braking is facilitated by disc brakes both at the front and rear. ABS is offered as a standard fitment, though it can be disengaged by holding down a button down on the instrument panel.

The full fairing has increased the RC390’s weight by just eight kilograms, which means that the RC390 is an insanely fast motorcycle. The fairing not only adds flair to the motorcycle, but also aids aerodynamics, which means that the RC390 will be faster than its naked sibling. Currently, the Ninja 300 is the only other supersports motorcycle which can come close to the RC390 in terms of performance. However, the big price gap between the two means that the RC390 will definitely attract a bigger audience.
