KTM RC 390 Competitors

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.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying RC 390

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...

Q. Which is best bike KTM RC 200 or KTM RC 390?
  • It's totally upto your decision. If you are someone who travels a lot then rc would be a very bad decision. Trust me you will surely feel riding a cycle to be less stressful. The power is insane and scary and looks awesome. But don't get deceived by its looks alone. The bike stands out in the crowd but you surely will lose the interest in riding that bike for more than 3-4months. Dukes are the best choice. Wait for the next duke to release. Tons of improvement. Duke 390 has the best console which the rc does not have. So it's any a better choice
  • Depends whether you want more power or bit pocket friendly bike....390 will initially cost you 70k approx more than RC 200. But you will get insane power, which if you are able to handle. For features RC 200 is also going to get abs sooner so that won't be an advantage with RC 390. Coming to more looked factor the mileage...for 390 you will achieve an average of 20-23 kmpl while for RC 200 you can get 32-35 kmpl. Keeping these factors you can decide yourself. Ride safe
  • Ktm 390 is best because it's has more features compare to 200 but 390 is good in highway not in economy mode..its will suffer...ktm 200rc will manage economic mode and beast mode..its suitable for both

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.

    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.

    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..

    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

  • 4.6

    It"s really a monster in it"s section. However the riding position is too aggressive to ride in city. Very good for highways and it"s feature, it"s power to weight ration is really too good. I am using this little monster for occasional tour and for highway riding in weekend. Sometimes use it for long distance that need to cover in short time. It"s awesome.

    Best bike in its segment in any way, every time it will make u happy when u rev it.... just love this orange beauty...If u r a beginner and wants a sportbike, go for it man....u will not regret it....and maintaining it is also very pocket-friendly....just keep its fairing safe from scratches.

    If you are looking for a performance machine the its a perfect. For daily commute its not a perfect bike and like all other ktm bikes maintenance is on a higher side. the main reason i bought this because of the performance and the looks.
