KTM Announces RC390 Sportbike

Based on KTM’s light, cheap and quick 390 Duke, this is an all new bike from KTM, the RC390. This KTM RC390, which will be available for sale in 2014, will meet a big demand for affordable, quality sport bikes for the lower displacement class. Since KTM has already confirmed the 390 Duke is coming to Malaysian dealers for 2014, it’s logical to assume the RC390  which will use the same chassis and engine will get here too.

The Duke has a claimed tank-empty weight of 306 pounds and claimed hp is 43 (expect a little under 40 at the wheel). The RC390 is the Duke with different styling, including that angular, Gerald Kiska-penned fairing. The race version is trimmed down to 286 pounds and less than 39 hp, but this is due to racing rules.
