2018 KTM RC 390

PURE ROAD RACING SPIRIT

2018 KTM RC 390The KTM RC 390 has the perfect ingredients to show the rear lights even to larger supersport bikes every now and then. Thanks to design refinements such as vertically stacked transmission shafts, the sophisticated DOHC single of the KTM RC 390 is extremely compact and weighs in at only 36 kg. A ride by wire system adds refinement, while the proven PASC™ slipper clutch minimizes rear wheel chatter when trail-braking sharply into corners or downshifting aggressively. In addition, there is a lightweight exhaust system with aluminum and steel silencer. The trellis frame, WP suspension components, the first-rate brake system with disengageable ABS and the powerful 320 mm front disc brake ensure precision, full control and maximum performance. Then there are practical features such as large mirrors and adjustable levers. In short: it is just the thing for well-versed sports riders with a penchant for understatement, but also for road racing rookies and returning riders with high octane fuel in their veins.
