ktm rc 390

KTM took a subtle approach for 2023 by applying a small change for the RC 200 and RC 390 sportsbike.

Both RCs now fitted with a smoked windscreen, previously available only on the GP Edition on sale in India.

The new addition increased the sportier feel of both bikes.

Aside from the minor revisions, the 2023 RC 200 and RC 390 retains the same mechanics and equipment introduced in the previous 2022 model year.

That said, the updated RC 200 and RC 390 are expected to roll out into dealerships in India within the first half of 2023.

The RC 390 is an impressive machine; we recently had some fun with the 373cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected motorcycle at Sepang International Circuit and found it to be an enjoyable bike.

Thanks to its electronic package, including multiple riding modes and switchable ABS, the RC 390 is a fun bike to ride around the track and twisty roads.


Rupa jelas KTM RC 390 didedahkan lebih awal menjelang pelancaran rasmi motosikal itu yang akan berlangsung tidak lama lagi.

Berdasarkan imej yang dikongsikan, beberapa kemaskini telah dilaksanakan bagi memastikan RC 390 kekal relevan untuk beberapa tahun akan datang.

Antara perbezaan ketara adalah bahagian lampu depan yang kini menempatkan unit lampu tunggal dan dipadankan bersama lampu nyalaan sisi di kiri dan kanan.

Bahagian lain yang turut dinaik taraf adalah penggunaan tangki lebih besar, fork WP boleh laras, paparan TFT berwarna dan cakera brek tunggal baharu dengan kaliper brek ByBre.

KTM RC 390 ini juga dijangka dikuasakan enjin 373.2cc yang sama terdapat pada 390 Adventure dan menawarkan sekitar 44hp.

Pengeluar motosikal Austria itu dijangka melancarkan RC 390 di GP Styria hujung minggu ini.

After a series of spy shot photos, the KTM RC 390 finally appear in its official form thanks to a series of leaked photos ahead of its official launch.

The entry-level sportbike will also be offered in 125cc and 250cc in Europe and the Asian market.

For now, the RC 390 is the Austrian manufacturer “biggest” sportbike offering after they discontinued the RC 8.

The RC 390 will continue to offer the same 373.2cc found on the 390 Adventure, with the power set to be around 44hp.

The most significant change is using a single piece front headlight, replacing the dual-headlight setup flanked by a long piece of indicators.

Like the current DUKE and Adventure, the RC 390 comes with a TFT colour display, adjustable WP suspension, larger fuel tank and a new single-disc brake system.

According to reports, KTM will unveil the RC 390 this weekend at the Red Bull Ring.

  • A new KTM RC 390 was spotted undergoing road tests.

  • Introduced in 2014, it needs an upgrade/redesign.

  • The new bike may be introduced for 2021.

As we speculated, all manufacturers are hard at work to produce new models by 2020 and 2021. But one bike which has gone under the radar for a long time is the KTM RC 390.

The bike made huge waves and sold like hotcakes when it was introduced back in 2014. Soon, they were everywhere. There were also RC 390-exclusive racing series and some owners took it to track days.

The bike was last updated in 2017. But 5 years is a long time (maybe too long) for the model’s product cycle in that cut throat segment.

So, as with the KTM 390 Duke test bike caught testing months ago, a prototype RC 390 was also spied over the weekend.

According to RideApart, the new bike will debut in 2021.

Changes to the new bike is immediately noticeable as KTM redesigned the bike: the front fairing has a similar profile, but the rest of the bodywork are different. Even the rear seat is different and takes a contemporary design instead of the current single-seat look.

Also gone is the lattice work of the rear subframe. The handlebars appear to be mounted higher for more comfortable ergonomics.

The new bike will of course be Euro 5 compliant, but there are no details yet if there are any power upgrades.

The 2017 KTM RC 390 was introduced last year in October together with the 2017 KTM RC 250.

A lot of major updates have been integrated such as Ride-by-Wire, slipper clutch, and chassis just to name a few.

Priced at RM29,800 (basic price with GST), the 2017 KTM RC 390 is indeed a good choice for track days and weekend rides on mountain roads.

Not me…

Rewind the clock back to 2014 and I’m reminded of a very different time and place. After a few years of teaching at one ‘international university’, my beloved yet very old Modenas Karisma decided to give its last breath. After years of service, the old boy just couldn’t take anymore. (more…)
