Its a beast. You will fall in love with the moment you give the first throttle. In 3.25 lakh price range you are getting the performance of a 600CC superbike. Since its performance oriented, it drinks a lot. When it comes to comfort, you need to compromise and adjust to the machine. I am more than happy with my RC390!!!!
I love this bike it pretty comfortable for pillion also but if you ride for too long youe wrist starts to pain but since its a sports bike i can't complain.
Performance - Great Look - Awesome Comfort - Good ( better than R15 and RS)Mileage - Poor😭Maintenance - Little High
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.
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.
Great Riding , great comfort, spped and balance, braking not up to mark.... But ok, suspension good not great
