Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying RC 390

Q. How is it for touring - RC 390?
  • Not good at all for touring... I have had a lot of issues regarding the coolent and the radiator fan... Engine Overheating and head gasket issues.... This issues don't appear on short city rides.... But eventually arise when you take it for long tours. Also the bike is not at all comfortable and where to keep the luggage? Prefer Duke 390/250 for touring if KTM is your choice of brand.
  • Its a track bike...you can use for touring if you take intermittent breaks...but back sores....enjoy the beast in track.
  • Get well soon.

Q. What about the vibrations? Are they negligible? or do they creep in all the time - RC 390?
  • No it does vibrate. Mainly the entire body is made out of fibre to reduce weight power ratio in the engine. The battery panel which is clearly an risky place to keep in front of the petrol tank, will surely get vibrations with use. You will definitely see is intensity increase with time. Mirrors also become squeaky. So vibrations from engine will be felt at high speeds of over 80kmh. So don't expect a smooth peaceful ride on this bike
  • With the new RC model with the silencer. The vibrations are substantially reduced compared to the old model. The engine is surely not vibration free but not something a person would worry about. But still I would suggest a test ride.
  • If you're riding more then 100 km par hour defenetly vibration is coming legs and ears if you're ride proper 60 to 80 no vibration in bikes

    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

    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.

KTM RC 390 Highlights

RC 390 Specifications

Power output is the same and the BS6-compliant 373.2cc, single-cylinder motor continues to churn out 43.5PS and 36Nm when compared to the older BS4 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.

RC 390 Design and Features

KTM launched the updated BS6 version of the RC 390. It received new colours the addition of fresh decals and a new paint scheme. The new paint job endows the bike with a fresh visual appeal.

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.


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.
