KTM RC 390 Overview

The RC 390 is the refined version of the already benchmarked for performance motorcycle, The Duke 390. It gets all the goodness of the Duke 390 with better handling capabilities, whilst retaining the entire god given gung-ho-ness. With loads of learning from the ADAC Junior Cup and Moto 3, the fully faired super sport category RC 390 defines the quarter-litre class of motorcycles in almost every aspect and it's heading to give other manufacturers in its segment a trashing. While sharing most of the platform with its Duke sibling, the RC boasts some serious alternations and fine tinkering that raise its dynamic and handling capability to the next level. KTM RC 390 Overview

KTM RC 390 Engine & Transmission

Nothing new to see here, the RC sports the same 373cc, single cylinder, 44bhp engine as the Duke 390, although with a hint of remapping. With additional weight and a new engine map, the RC 390 feels creamier through the gears while being almost as fast as the Duke 390 in terms of acceleration. It is an ideal motorcycle to go for those weekend rides and track days. The biggest advantage comes with the addition of the full fairing that helps protect the rider from the heat dissipated from the engine, keeping things cool in day to day cut throat traffic.KTM RC 390 Engine & Transmission

KTM RC 390 Mileage

With an engine tuned for linear power deliver, there is a slight increase in mileage as compared to the Duke 390, but hardly. While its still quite difficult to restrain your angst to wring the throttle, if successful there are changes of getting close to 33kmpl. While the others who cave in to the temptation of acceleration should expect drop in fuel economy by 6-9kmpl. KTM RC 390 Mileage

KTM RC 390 Performance and Handling

The RC 390 makes its intentions very clear the moment you saddle up on it. Like every KTM before it, the RC too is very purpose built. It proves to be a capable motorcycle in city traffic as well as the highways. The aggressive riding ergonomics aren't there to ruin the fun but enhance it in a very different way. If the 390 Duke is a hammer then the RC 390 is a scalpel. The RC wont exuberate the sheer hooliganism of the Duke but would simply gear the rider for a lighting fast dash through traffic while giving the confidence to push the machine harder and get his knee closer to the tarmac on the twisties.KTM RC 390 Performance and Handling
