KTM RC 390 Latest Updates

The 2017 edition of the KTM RC 390 was recently launched in January, 2017. The new KTM RC 390 gets cosmetic updates and new features. It now gets a black and orange colour scheme, but with fresh graphic design in white. The body of the bike have orange-coloured panels which were previously used only for the trellis frame and alloy wheels. The 2017 KTM RC 390 has been priced at Rs 2.25 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. The new graphics make the KTM motorcycle look sporty and more appealing and another visual distinguish between the new bike and the old bike is the exhaust muffler. Unlike the old RC 390 which has an underbelly exhaust system, the new KTM RC 390 sports a side-mounted exhaust. On the mechanical front, the bike now gets ride-by-wire system which improves the throttle response of the bike and the RC 390 is the only bike in its segment to feature it. Power is derived from the same 373.3cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled mill which is now BS-IV compliant and continues to produce the same power output of 43.5PS at 9000rpm while max torque has been bumped up 1Nm to 36Nm at 7000rpm. The bike gets new adjustable clutch and brake levers. It also gets bigger rear view mirrors, which should make them more usable with a better field of view. The front disc is also a larger 320mm dia unit while ABS remains standard. Suspension and frame of the bike remain unchanged. The BS-IV version of the KTM RC390 weighs 163.5kg which is a massive gain of 15kg in comparison to the older bike.

KTM RC 390 Highlights


Power output is the same and the 373.2cc, single-cylinder motor continues to churn out 43.5PS. However, torque output has gone up by 1Nm and now stands at 36Nm when compared to the older motor. Braking is managed by a 320mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc brake along with dual-channel ABS. The trellis frame remains unchanged and gives the bike brilliant handling dynamics when coupled with the super sticky Metzeler tyres. The frame is suspended on USD front forks and a monoshock suspension at the back.

Design and Features

KTM launched the updated BS-IV version of the RC 390 at the beginning of 2017. It also received quite a few tweaks to its design with the addition of fresh decals and a new paint scheme. The new paint job endows the bike with a fresh visual appeal. The biggest noticeable change is the side-mounted exhaust, which not only looks better but has also helped improve the ground clearance. The new updates also include reach-adjustable clutch and brake levers, while the all-digital instrument console has been carried forward. The company has also launched the KTM RC 390 R internationally. With only 500 units on sale. The company also plans to manufacture 50 units of the SSP300 race track kit, which can be fitted on to the standard RC 390 as well. The KTM RC 390 R is priced at a whopping Rs 7.65 lakh while the SSP300 Race Kit costs Rs 9.91 lakh!


DSK Benelli 302R: The 302R isn’t an outright performer thanks in part to its weight. However, if performance isn’t a priority and if you are looking for a lot of pose value, the 302R is a good option as it feels smooth, offers confidence-inspiring handling and a very dramatic exhaust note that is similar to much bigger bikes. It is the most affordable twin-cylinder, 300cc bike in the market. What makes the deal even sweeter is the ABS that comes as standard which helps it come across as a capable touring machine.

Kawasaki Ninja 300: The Ninja 300’s parallel-twin engine feels rev happy and is extremely refined with plenty of power reserved at the top. It is lighter than the 302R and feels confident, nimble and engaging as an entry-level sportsbike. It costs more than the 302R, that too without the safety net of ABS. The Ninja 300 is as admirable as before and provides a good balance between track day and city usage.


If you are looking for a light, powerful, sharp-handling sportsbike, then the RC 390 is the right tool to opt for, especially considering its value-for-money quotient. The updates have made the new RC 390 friendlier with the addition of ride-by-wire technology and improved braking. However, the riding posture is very committed and the bike is more suited for track use rather than a tool for the daily commute.

The fully faired middle weight sports bike gets a host of features including a fuel injected engine, new paint scheme, full fairing, orange painted frame, cushioned seat, engine cowl, led tail lamp. I do ride occasionally or maybe daily commute or rarely After u know that you will have to take your time on understanding a bike you should learn on a smaller capacity bike and move on to bigger... Also just like a coin have 2 sides these bikes have pros and cons that depends on u best of luck ! cheers.

Not good for City usage. Back pain in riding 10km itself. Disposed the bike within 8 months of use. Used it upto 3.5k kilometre. It"s a good show off bike and treat for others eyes but it"s the pain the rider will experience with time. Back pain as well as joint of your palm. Shoulder pain is crazy. Not too good for everyday use. Kiddish petrol tank is another flop show. As much as I waited eagerly to buy it, it was the same when I had to sell it
