2016 KTM RC390 Review

2016 KTM RC390 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Racing Genes...

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 pure race feeling. The handling – simply spectacular. The performance – incredible. The power – awesome.


2016 KTM RC390 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

2016 KTM RC390 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Ergonomics


Seat
The two-part seat offers first class supersport ergonomics with perfect support for rider and pillion. With a seat height of 820mm enables the rider to have a secure stand while also being high enough for sporty use and real big-bike feeling.


Handlebar
The clip on handlebars and switches contribute to a sporty and aggressive riding position combined with advanced control.


Fuel tank
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.


Windshield
The advanced design windshield in combination with the aerodynamic optimized motorcycle front ensures incredible wind protection for rider’s chest and arms.

 

 

Outstanding style


Bodywork
The brand new bodywork, footrests and pedals not only provide a unique supersport look but also help the RC to master extreme cornering by allowing a greater leaning angle.


Headlight
The twin headlight opens a new direction for KTM style and perfectly matches with the racing supersport look of RC.


Integrated blinkers
As a special feature, the RC incorporates blinkers into the mirror structure, which not only look sporty but also contribute to the perfect aerodynamics.


Thin tail
Fitting perfectly into the pure racing look, the number plate holder rounds KTM’s high performance bike off.

 

 

Racing DNA


Engine
The state-of-the-art, liquid cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke 375ccm engine with twin overhead camshafts, four valves and electronic fuel injection, already equipped in the Duke 390 provides outstanding power and thanks to the balancer shaft, delivers the highest level of smoothness. Because of the KTM-typical compact design with stacked transmission shafts the engine has an unbelievable low weight of 36kg. Combine that with technical details like a forged piston, Nikasil-cylinder-coating and forced feed lubrication with power-promoting body-evacuation and you get an engine which provides a remarkable 44hp. The engine is equipped with an electric starter powered by a 12V/8Ah battery.


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


Brakes
KTM in cooperation with Brembo developed a powerful, excellent to dose brake-system which allows the rider to be always in full control of the RC. A four piston radially bolted caliper in combination with a single brake disk (300mm diameter) in the front and a single piston floating caliper with a single brake disk (230mm diameter) for the rear wheel guarantee excellent breaking reaction even in the sportiest manner of riding.
