Many of use have been waiting for this for a very long time. Finally, KTM has show interest in the entry level supersport segment, and the next-generation RC 390 sportsbike has been spotted testing. Seen on the road on international soil, expect the new KTM RC 390 to make a global debut at either INTERMOT or EICMA 2019. When announced, this will be launched as a 2020 model, and for sure, it will be made and sold here in India.
Spyshots reveal the following changes:
- New front fairing
- New side fairing styling
- New & rounder windscreen
- New headlamps
- Sleeker tail section, with cowl effect pillion seat
- Exhaust similar to the current KTM 390 Duke
- Reworked rear subframe
- New tail lamp
- New seat
- Larger fuel tank (visibly)
Apart from these visible changes, we can be sure that the 2019-20 KTM RC 390 will come with a TFT colour display instrument cluster, LED headlamps, ABS, slipper clutch, ride-by-wire, and may be a few extra party tricks.
Powering the bike will be the same engine, the 373cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder block. Let’s hope for some power and torque increase for this model change.
Exciting times for sure. When launched, the KTM RC 390 will again create a new benchmark in the segment.
