  • Q. I have 125 cc bike so should I buy RC 390 or not?
    Mahendra | 3 months ago

    See it all depends for what purpose you want to buy it, since its best in its class with best pickup, power, and even moderate maintenance cost, but don't have resell value. If u want something in between then go rc 200,it would be better option too.

    If you are confident and if you are really comfortable with the 125 cc bike then you can surely upgrade to 390 rc . Rc 390 requires a little bit experience so please take that into consideration.

  • Q. Can I drive 1000 kms continuously in a day?
    Anubhav | 2 months ago

    I myself had ridden rc 390 for about 2430 kms from delhi to Coimbatore in a single attempt in 33 hours but i felt really s****d after that.so when i returned from Coimbatore, i did around 1400 kms in a day and slept at night and then did the remaining 1000 kms on the next day.After this mayhem, i could not feel my palm for a week and the ring finger on my left hand was numb for about 2 months. Also i am a fit guy, so did not suffer any back pain but my shoulders were dead for a couple of weeks.My advice is, yes the bike can do 1000 kms in a day on an highway pretty easily, although it is a mammoth task. Hence you should be fit enough to be able to do that, mentally as well as physically. Lastly i would advice to ride in a time limited manner and not distance limited.

    Its pretty painful believe me, i did it once and after that I had to forget that I've a bike. But the real trick is only try to cover that much, which is below your pains and nothing else.

  • Q. I daily travel around 60 Kms in a city area in heavy traffic and looking for a sports bike with fairly good mileage. Is this a right choice if not, any suggestions?
    Pranav | 5 months ago

    RC390 is a strict no no! It wont give you mileage and is very uncomfortable in city. Your wrists would pain a lot. If you are strictly looking for faired bikes and mileage is a concern, then I assume maintenance would also be a factor you must be caring about. You got two options, for good mileage go for Yamaha R15; and if you can compromise a bit on mileage and want some performance as well, then Yamaha R3 is the best bike you would get out there. R3 is comfortable in city as well but comes with a price tag! But Yamaha is very reliable than the KTM! This is my opinion though because I have faced a lot of issues with my KTM and the service is not that good. Also the availability of service centers and the expertise of mechanics is a issue if you want to go for touring. Yet, if you are tight on your budget and you want performance while travelling in city, then Duke 250/390 is anytime a good choice. There is no doubt that duke is the best bike for city, but only if you can consider buying this naked bike. For faired version don't go for KTM, prefer Yamaha.

    Rc 390 is a bike thats really not suitable for traffic by my opinion . In traffic situations i think i get nearly 20 kmpl . And rc 390 is not a bike up for daily use . I personally use the bike only for long rides . You can only feel the real performance of an rc 390 during long rides . Choose this bike If you really love it .

  • Q. What about the vibrations? Are they negligible? or do they creep in all the time?
    Bhavani | 4 months ago

    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.

  • Q. Is that rc 390 is a reliable bike?
    Farhan | 6 months ago

    Absolutely! I just got done with 2200KM ride recently on RC 390, I got no problem at all. It has great controling system. I guess the braking power is awsome amd it really justifies the power and money spent on it.

  • Q. Sir i am confused between two bikes i.e dominar 400 and ktm rc 390(abs)which bike should i prefer if i want to take that bikes to hilly areas?
    Zigwheels | 10 months ago

    The Bajaj Dominar 400 looks like a muscular motorcycle and has a performance that lives up to the suggestions thrown by its lines and is a new breed of affordable performance bikes for the masses. If you’re looking for an affordable, fast and comfortable highway cruiser that performs well in the city too, then the Dominar 400 is certainly an option worth shortlisting. On the other hand, 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.

  • Q. I love speed but I just have only 2 years experience in sports bikes and now I decided to buy RC 390 is that good for me and I also need to know is there any bikes at 400 cc at a price of 1.5 lakh. I need a bike not like Royal Enfield I need a sports bike.
    Pranav | 4 months ago

    While buying a high powered sports bike, experience matters. If you love your life more than speed. RC390 has a high power engine which is not preferred for crowded cities. If you have free highways and you would like to learn riding actual sports bike. RC is a good choice. But remember great power will bring responsibility. Ride responsibly so that you can live long to enjoy your riding freedom.There are no cheap bikes in that low price segment unless you buy a used vehicle and if you can opt a used Yamaha R3. Prefer it!

    Dude I don't think you will get a 300cc new bike within than budget. You will however get seconds. But I'm sure if l you can splurge another 30-40 you can go for new dominor 2019. Best all rounder. But that's your choice. Don't judge a bike by its cc. A bullet 500 cannot even catch up with KTM 390. Power to weight ratio matters, so dominor is perfect for that

  • Q. How is it for touring?
    Pranav | 4 months ago

    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.

  • Q. Which is best for stunts and racing, RC 390 or Duke 390?
    Zigwheels | 5 months ago

    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. On the other hand, the KTM 390 Duke has always come across as a value for money product and the new variant takes the VFM quotient a notch up as it looks a lot more irresistible now. Also, while it may not be as quick as the earlier 390, it certainly is a lot more refined. The 390 Duke is a wild beast and is meant for a lot more experienced riders and thrill seekers.Read More: - 2017 KTM RC 390: First Ride Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/2017-ktm-rc-390-first-ride-review/27316/ - 2017 KTM 390 Duke: Road Test Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/2017-ktm-390-duke-road-test-review/28954/
