KTM RC 390 Latest Updates

KTM has increased the asking price of its flagship supersport -- the RC 390 -- to Rs 2,53,184 (ex-showroom Delhi). It is a whole Rs 9,170 more than the BS4 RC 390. Unlike the BS6 KTM 390 Duke, the BS6 RC 390 doesn’t get a bi-directional quickshifter but just a rather plain and simple black/white colour scheme.

RC 390 Specifications

The RC 390 is powered by a BS6-compliant 373.3cc fuel-injected liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that puts out 43.5 PS at 9000rpm and 36 Nm at 7,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission aided by a slipper clutch. The bike’s hardware includes a trellis frame suspended on an upside-down fork and a monoshock, both from WP. Anchoring the bike is a single 320mm disc up front and a 230mm rear disc. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard. The entire package weighs in at 166.8kg (kerb).

RC 390 Design

While the overall design of the bike remains unchanged, it gets new black and white paint livery orange accents where even the wheels are painted black instead of the traditional orange shade. Despite being a 6-year old design, the RC 390 still looks modern and sharp. It’s angular design language and supersport stance still appeals to KTM enthusiasts.

RC 390 Features

On the feature front, the RC 390 comes equipped with a twin projector headlamp, LED tail light and turn signal, an all-digital instrument console that includes a clock, trip meter, odometer, and distance to empty indicator. Other notable features include an upside-down fork and a radially mounted caliper up front.

KTM RC 390 Competitors

In the current scenario, the BS6 KTM RC 390 goes up against the recently updated BS6 TVS Apache RR 310 and the Kawasaki Ninja 300. The RR 310, post its update, puts up a tough fight against the RC 390. It comes with a ton of features, sports a more refined motor and gets grippier tyres, all for a premium of Rs 12,000.

Editor's View of KTM RC 390

  • Upside

    The most powerful bike in its segment, rev-happy engine, ride-by-wire offers precise throttle inputs.

  • Downside

    Committed riding posture, instrument console looks dated, stiff ride quality

  • Our Verdict

    If you're looking for a light, powerful, sharp-handling sportbike that'll help you hone your skills, the KTM RC 390 makes perfect sense. However, the bike's committed riding posture means it's more suited for track than road. And in that case, you could consider the TVS Apache RR 310 which has been significantly improved post its BS6 update.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying RC 390

Q. Describe about low beam and high beam head light for RC 390. Are they separate ( in projector ) or for high beam both the projector will on ?
  • At low beam mode, only one lamp will work and another will be used as a dipper. On High beam mode, both lamps will work simultaneously.
Q. My height is 6.0 feet which is a bike suitable RC 390 or Duke 390?
  • As per your height, KTM Duke 390 would be a better pick. It has 830mm of seat height and will be suitable for you. If everyday performance is your top priority, nothing offers the same sort of explosive acceleration and razor sharp handling as the 390 Duke in this price range or in a segment above. Now more mature and refined in its latest form, the 2020 KTM 390 Duke still remains a well-rounded package tailor-made for thrill-seekers. On the other hand, KTM RC 390 also gets the same engine and performance but the bike's committed riding posture means it's more suited for track than a road. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.
Q. What is the fuel average of Duke 390 and RC 390?
  • In our fuel efficiency test, KTM 390 Duke delivers 25.70kmpl in city and 28.50kmpl on the highway. If we talk about KTM RC 390, Though we haven't tested its fuel efficiency in the real world, we expect similar mileage in the city and both have the same engine and similar weight but a bit better mileage on the highway because of its aerodynamic fairing. Also, fuel efficiency will depend on riding style, road/traffic conditions also.

Q. Is KTM Duke 390 better or RC 390 better in speed and economically
  • Both have same parts so maintenance on both is exactly the same. Only the faring on the RC will cost you more.Both have the same engine and power. Duke will win a drag race because of the lighter weight.RC will win on the track because it is more committed to the track, better top speed and better aerodynamics.Duke is a favorite on the streets because its more comfortable, better for touring, everyday commuting and has a bigger tank.
  • I think rc 390 for racing because it has windshield it is very helpful for riding on highway because if you ride bike on highway so fast many windblast came so windshield Stop them so i think rc 390 but i personally like duke 390 specially design and power both bike are good
  • Both the bike are different from each other. performance is almost same but RC is more stable on high speed as it had better aerodynamics, economically both the bike are same. though duke is lighter that RC so performance will be different of course

Q. If we compare rc390 & duke390 which one will be better for highways?
  • In terms of posture duke, in terms of sport bike dynamics and handling its rc. it all depends on your choice, both bike puts lots power to the rear wheel, but are also fairly comfortable, seat comfort and highway i would prefer the duke, but as a rc owner i can tell you, rc's are a blast on the highway , both are so much relatable. if you are driving way too long, and you don't know much about how to handle a sport posture bike like rc' like holding tank with legs- which gives you less pressure on your wrists. then i would recommend you go for duke. But when you buy an rc you can learn too and people have made trip to kanyakumari to kashmir in that . so they are versatile,and lastly you need to maintain your ktm bikes pretty good, meaning more service visits every 5k kms or 6 months whicever comes early. if you are in a more dusty region then every 4 months compulsory, then your bike will ride very very good. no probs. i am an owner of more than 5 years, people do have complains on the bike and its parts wearing off quickly , quite true, but then thats how you got the less price tag. enjoy your day. test ride that bikes.
  • To be honest... If you ask which is a better vehicle in terms of performance, handling, controlling and stability with road grip... RC390 is much better than Duke 390.Now, if you are looking for latest features such as TFT display, Bluetooth connectivity which allows you to receive and decline calls from handlebar itself.. change songs.. increase & decrease volume etc. then Duke 390 is the best choice... also, it offers you the sitting posture which is both commited also and relaxed as well... whereas in RC390 its only commited riding position which May give you back pain and wrist pain if you are not used to riding sport bikes.
  • RC390 handle wind blast but same way it have committed posture. with feed back from RC driver they feel comfortable while drive in handling same for me.though i am having D390 its near to safe and good for long term.

Q. Which is better KTM RC 390 or KTM 390 Duke
  • There is no doubt in this tht KTM is highly reputed company but I want to share my experience, I have ktm rc390 and have done hardly 29000 km on it. You can check me service records, all services are before time.. but my bike has started leaving black smoke. It has just done 29000km and leaving black smoke. It's engine oil level decrease drastically.I have give my bike in ktm service station, total cost is above 50000 Rs. That too it l take month to get repaired. Once u have purchased this bike, there is no good support from KTM. Every one is just looting money from you. You can just imagine the quality of engine which starts burning engine oil just after 29000 km.
  • My bike is ktm rc 390 ...Why i choosed this model because first of all i think rc is looking more musculr than duke ...if we look at its specifications both rc and duke having the same except its handling and ride postureBefore rc i had r15/pulsar 220 both are more or less same on its riding posture and handlingIf we look at duke its a staright sitting naked bike And i test drived once at that time i felt its little hard to ride in traffic means to do very tricky to make a fast manoeuvre rest in highways it gives a good rodong posture with no back pain or shoulder painThen also why i choose rc my mainly because of its handling and look
  • Both are powerful performance bikes...they are made to do drift or race..drift bi Duke 390 with supetmoto mode in which you can unlock rear abs for drifting lowers..can be used for short commute not touring..Rc 390 is a proper race track beast for leaning in the track..ultimate midrange..handling...which one is better? buy according to your needs...but Duke does all what rc does and more with supetmoto mode...

    I have been using RC390 2018 model from last 8 months. During this period, I have done two long rides i.e. 1- Chikmangluru trip from Hyd (2000 km) in 3days2- Bhubaneswar from Hyd (1100 km) in 17hrsI mentioned above trips because it would help in understanding mileage and comfort.Talking about the mileage: in Hyd during city rides I use to get 19 or 20 kmpl.But in long rides:Avg Speed > 110 kmph : 30 - 33 kmplAvg speed 80 - 100 kmph : 33 - 35 kmplAvg speed 70 - 80 kmph : 37 kmpl approxI have not ridden below 70 avg 😅And coming to comfort, the seat is very hard, so I felt like it is burning after 350 Kms. The shocks are stiff so if the road is not buttery smooth it will be too hectic. After my trip to Bhubaneswar, wrist and neck pain lasted around 10days. I felt Wrist pain can be avoided using cushioned gloves And neck/back pain can be avoiding by using saddle bags.Overall the bike demands a fit guy to cover such distance using a RC, I am saying it as my friends were not able to ride this for more than 30minutes even, where as I was able to cover such distance. Coming to performance, I am very happy with its power delivery. I feel continuous acceleration till 160 kmph. 320mm front disc give good bite. And the last one is the tyres. They are damn good. Whether it is a dry or wet road it does not matter too much. Whether it’s a long stretch or curvy road in hilly areas I was confident throughout my rides due to the tyres and brakes.I see it is a fair deal by KTM. I mean the sharp design, performance etc everything is top notch.Note: this is my personal opinion based on my experience so far. Someone else’s review might vary.

    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.

    I'm a Supersport lover and previously owned r15 before owning rc390, This bike is completely in a different league from my 1st bike and it's a straight one sided machine built for the track, don't expect it to comfortable machine for long rides, with 43.5bhp in-between you legs it's the best performing machine in the segment with abs but lacks refinement, but the raw feel of the bike is exciting and only buy it if you are looking for out right performance machine.

  • 3.4

    RC is a completely track oriented faired bike with little use in road..its riding posture ,heat from engine is too much ..so take it on a track or Sunday ride..great power delivery short gear ratio (1st and second) instant pick up..will take you beyond legal limits..wireless throttle .. duel channel abs ..excellant brakes ..forget about pillion and mileage and comfort..for those who like tracks..if refinement is not in your dictionary go for it..

  • 3.0

    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
