KTM RC390 breaks cover ahead of EICMA


KTM RC390 webThe all-new 2014 KTM RC390 has been leaked, or so our friends online have claimed. The new fully-faired model is based on the 390 Duke, and brings the entire list of goodies including WP suspension, standard ABS, 110-front and 150-section rear rubber and, of course, the high-revving 373.2cc fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, DOHC 4-valve motor with all of its 43.5 PS.

The new motorcycle gains a few pounds, but actually looks even more delectable now, especially for sportsbike fans. At 147 kg, the power-to-weight ratio is still staggering at 296 PS/tonne. Most of the design elements other than the fairing are the same, save for the headlamp unit, which is now a twin-headlamp setup. You also get clip-on handlebars for a sportier riding position.

The RC390 will be produced alongside the 390 Duke and will make its way to India, we expect, early next year and with a price tag only slightly higher than its mean, naked sibling, the 390 Duke.

    The Bike Looks very Great in side profile but from front view, it looks like an old model. It should have designed a lot better like Yamaha and Honda
