A sports bike in its purest form. Reduced to the essentials. Agile, fast, suitable for A2 driving licence and extremely sporty. Whether you are on country roads or the racetrack, the Moto3 genes are perceptible in every manoeuvre and convey a pure race feeling. The handling - simply spectacular. The performance - incredible. The power - thrilling.
The clip on handlebars and switches contribute to a sporty and aggressive riding position combined with advanced control.
ERGONOMICS & COMFORT
The KTM RC provides a racing-inspired body position and freedom of movement while preserving the comfort needed for every day usage, for you and your pillion. Unsurpassed operability and large contact surfaces ensure optimum control and feel for maximum cornering fun all day long.
A steel fuel tank with 10l capacity (including 1,5l reserve) has been developed for the RC, perfectly matching the supersport style and vehicle design, together with rider ergonomics. Thanks to the economic engine, the RC achieves even in the sportiest manner of riding a considerable range.
A state-of-the-art 2-channel Bosch ABS helps you get the most out of the impressive RC dynamics and adds the finishing touch to its peerless chassis qualities. The ABS on the KTM RC 390 monitors the effect of the potent brake system with radially-bolted, 4-piston caliper and 320 mm disc diameter - fun with no regrets. And for the stunt riders among us: The ABS is disengageable.
Equally lightweight as they are stable, the 17 inch orange painted cast light alloy wheels sized 110 mm wide at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear. The tyres impress with tremendous grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as providing supreme durability.
The forged aluminum triple clamps are eye-catchers and together with the clip on handlebars guarantee a pure supersport racing feeling.
The KTM RC 390 high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension has the same 43 mm outer tube diameter as the RC8 R- in other words, real racing equipment that guarantees highest levels of stability and precision.
The orange-painted frame of the RC 390 has been engineered to be one of the best performing chassis in the segment. It's been built to award riders with a high level of agility, sporty feedback, ergonomics and dynamics. A 66.5 degree steering head angle ensures port handling characteristics, while the short trail, short wheelbase and good ground release the race-bred attitude in the RC.
It's the guarantee of a smooth throttle response, more than simply the absence of a throttle cable. The RC 390's ride by wire ensures perfect application 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.
The RC 390 is equipped with a side exhaust, including link pipe and silencer.
Not only does the slipper clutch open when the engine back-torque becomes too high, it also assists when you open up the throttle. The former prevents annoying 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 - which saves energy when riding.
Exactly like they did in the RC8 R, the four valves in the cylinder head of the 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.
