01 / PERFORMANCE

performance

TRIPLE CLAMPS

The forged aluminium triple clamps are eye-catchers and together with the clip-on handlebars guarantee a pure supersport racing feeling.

performance

PERFORMANCE SUSPENSION TELESCOPIC FORK

The KTM RC 390 high-quality upside-down fork from WP has the same 43 mm outer tube diameter as the RC8 R - in other words, real racing equipment that guarantees the highest levels of stability and precision.

performance

RACE-SPEC WHEELS WHEELS

As light as they are stable, the eye-catching 17 inch orange cast alloy wheels bring the whole bike together, with a 110 mm wide wheel at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear. Wrapped in premium rubber, the tyres will keep you glued to the road and are sure to impress with their outstanding grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as providing supreme durability.

performance

ULTIMATE BRAKING BRAKES

In cooperation with Brembo, KTM developed a high-tech braking system that works in perfect harmony with the state-of-the-art ABS, allowing riders to always be in full control of their KTM RC 390. With a four piston radially bolted caliper and a huge 320 mm brake disc on the front, paired with a single piston floating caliper and a 230 mm disc on the rear, the RC 390 delivers exceptional pro-level braking, no matter how hard you're riding.

performance

ERGONOMICS MEETS STYLE FUEL TANK

The KTM RC 390 features a sleek, steel fuel tank with a 10 litre capacity (including a 1.5 litre reserve tank). The tank has been developed to perfectly match the supersport style of the KTM RC 390 with smooth rider ergonomics. Thanks to the economical engine, the KTM RC 390 offers considerable range with this tank, even when riding in full sport mode all day long.

02 / STYLE

performance

THIN TAIL

An aerodynamic thin tail that fits perfectly into the pure racing look, combined with the integated number plate holder, rounds off this high performance KTM bike.

performance

INTEGRATED BLINKERS

Integrated blinkers have been subtly incorporated into the mirror structure to ensure that the KTM RC 390 not only looks super-sporty, but also benefits from perfect aerodynamics for a faster, more efficient ride.

performance

TRUE SUPERSPORT HEADLIGHT HEADLIGHT

The powerful twin headlight provides superb visibility in low-light or dark conditions and perfectly matches the modern, supersport race look of the KTM RC 390.

performance

ADVANCED LCD DISPLAY INSTRUMENT

A 100% digital LCD display has everything you would expect from a state-of-the-art KTM motorcycle, including engaged gear, fuel gauge and service reminder information. It also comes with an RPM alert to indicate the optimum moment for up-shifting, just like they have on the supersport racing machines.

03 / SAFETY

performance

ABS

ABS is standard equipment on the KTM RC 390. Use it to your advantage to enhance safety or switch it off if you're feeling READY TO RACE.

04 / POWER

performance

PHENOMENAL POWER ENGINE

The KTM RC 390 engine not only delivers bountiful torque and punchy acceleration, but also good manners in everyday use, all with outstanding fuel economy. This lightweight, compact engine really packs a punch and with 32 kW (44 hp), it's the sportiest option out there for A2 riders. Thanks to the ingenious intake design and the meticulous fuel injection system, the KTM RC 390 is ready to leave the rest of the city traffic behind at the twist of a wrist.

performance

CYLINDER HEAD

Exactly like they did in the RC8 R, the four valves in the cylinder head of the KTM RC 390 are actuated by two overhead camshafts and ultra-hard, carbon coated cam followers, providing reliability and longevity despite the engine's high power output.

performance

SLIPPER CLUTCH

Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open the throttle. The former prevents rear wheel chatter when braking sharply or decelerating - and gives the wheel just that bit of braking for a controlled rear wheel slide. The latter allows the clutch to be pulled and controlled with just one trigger-happy finger - saving you energy and offering greater control - just like the pros.

performance

RIDE-BY-WIRE

It's the guarantee of a smooth throttle response, more than simply the absence of a throttle cable. The KTM RC 390's ride-by-wire ensures perfect delivery of the readily available and plentiful torque. It also electronically translates the throttle commands of the rider into throttle valve positions, perfectly suited to the riding conditions, making this the perfect crossover bike for both track and road riding.

performance

POWER & TORQUE

A bike as compact and nimble as this one deserves to pack a solid punch. With 32 kW (44 hp) and a dry weight of just 149 kg, we did it justice. Thanks to the ingenious intake and exhaust system, the 46 mm throttle body and the meticulous fuel injection system, this strong stroker is ready to leave the rest of the city traffic behind at the twist of your wrist.

performance

A2 LICENSE

The KTM RC 390 matches all the A2 driver's license requirements and thanks to its high power-to-weight ratio, it's one of the most dynamic options out there for new riders.

performance

INJECTION

The intricate engine design, state-of-the-art injection electronics and close-ratio, 6-speed transmission not only help the KTM RC 390 to achieve impressive performance, but also extremely low fuel consumption. At the same time, thanks to the regulated catalytic converter, it produces only minimal emissions.

performance

RACE-INSPIRED SYSTEM EXHAUST

The compact, three-chamber silencer is positioned close to the bike's overall centre of gravity. This helps keep the motorcycle centrally balanced and easy to manoeuvre in the tight and twisty urban streets.

05 / ERGONOMIC

performance

RACING PROFILE HANDLEBARS HANDLEBAR

The clip-on bars and strategically positioned switches contribute greatly to the bike's sporty and aggressive riding position, whilst also enhancing control for perfect lines through any corner.

performance

SUPERSPORT ERGONOMICS SEATS

The two-part seat offers first class supersport ergonomics with perfect support for both rider and pillion. A seat height of 820 mm enables riders to have a secure position, whilst also being high enough for circuit-style riding. The pillion seat has been integrated into the bodywork so as not to compromise the supersport look of the KTM RC 390, whilst also ensuring excellent comfort for the passenger.

performance

ADVANCED AERODYNAMIC PROTECTION WINDSHIELD

The advanced design of the KTM RC 390's windshield works with the aerodynamic optimization of the front end to ensure ultimate wind protection for riders who like to open it up on the open road.

performance
