    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox with the engine rc is too refine and had a better pickup with the hp of 43.

    Ride quality & handling it is awesome with the the look & the the handling of the bike is too good than ninja.

    Final words overall it is a super bike for me.

    Every time i get on the bike it amazes me. The power always give the adrenaline. The seat is a little on the hard side as its a track oriented bike, if you have the passion and love towards super sport models then you can live with it. Riding in city traffic is bit paining for wrist and fingers due to frequent gear shifts. According to the showroom you need to ride the bike at least for 5 to 10 mins once or once in two days to keep the battery from discharging.

    Look wise the bike is amazing, some find the drl ugly but i personally love then. I liked the 2016 paint scheme more than the latest.

    Servicing of the bike has long gaps. And not much maintenance if you ride it well..

    Pros:

    1. Too much power.

    2. Good brakes.

    3. Best price ion the class

    Cons:

    1. Heats a lot.

    I own a ktm rc 390 with slipper clutch from October, 2016. The bike is my daily commute to my collage and i have some long rides as well like vizag, gurudongmar lake (sikkim), puri (odhisha) etc.

    Its been amazing with this bike. On highways its gives 35kmpl and at city 25-28kmpl.

    Servicing and maintenance of regular service is around 2000/-.In which motul 10w50 engine oil will cost you 1200/- for 1.5 ltrs and if someone opt for going to motul 300v then the engine oil only will cost around 1800/-

    Its amazing for highways and also did pretty well on gurudongmar's harsh terrains (but tires are a factor on those conditions).

    The looks of the bike is sleek and it can cut through traffic like a hot knife through butter despite being a faired bike.

    The stock metzellers will last around 12000-15000kms depending upon your riding style.

    The abs is really a life saver in the streets of the country where nothing is unexpected. From people to animals, anyone can become a Olympic level jumper here and suddenly comes in front of you. The abs saved me on several occasions.

    The braking had a wooden feeling which is eliminated in the 2017 variant.

    Its a goliath which means by bible is a person or a thing with great power.Pretty happy with it.

    thank you

    I brought my bike in november 2015 and had it for more than 3 years. I use it for daily commute and i get a great mileage of 35kmpl in city.. Ride quality on city roads and highway is superb as bike feels very composed on high speeds which makes over taking easy because bike is small, nimble and agile. Bike is not made for driving on village roads or bad roads as it has a stiff suspension that makes it a very bumpy ride. It is still a head turner and performance wise it doesn't have a match in the same price category and segment. Servicing cost is also reasonable but i have broken my mirror couple of times.. And they are not cheap and easy to keep in parking as people tell tend to move it and sometimes break it in the process of taking out there own vehicle.

Twenty minutes with the KTM RC390 at the Bajaj test track were all it took to remind me of everything that I have missed and an empty bank account is the only thing stopping me from buying a new motorcycle right now. It feels like I am out of a slumber and the biking world...
