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. 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. KTM RC 390 STD gives a mileage of 25 Kmpl as claimed by the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI). Actual mileage figure will depend on riding style and how it is maintained.

It’s pretty easy to filter through traffic with the rc 390. The mileage will be around 21-26 kmpl
The problem is not the heat.BIG capacity bikes tend to heat up quite a bit.The actual problem lies in the riding gear that is used.If a rider is riding in shorts and slippers, which is not the way to ride any bike actually, then heat can be unsettling but if proper riding gear is used then you wont feel a thing.And in short, No the bike does not have heating issues since 2017.Ride safe.

Yes it was over heating problem agar thumha Jada dhur nahi Jana ha ktm rc 390 kharidlo agar dhur Jana ha to Kawasaki ninja kharidlo
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
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.
