The KTM RC 390 Information:
The KTM RC 390 is a 373.2 cc displacement single-cylinder engine motorcycle for KTM, an Austrian cycle manufacturer. It was unveiled in 2013 at the EICMA show in Milan, Italy. This model is a sportbike version of the popular 390 Duke. This road racing bike has a frame that differs from the Duke in that it is a stiffer single piece trellis frame. In addition, the RC has a steeper fork at a 66.5-degree angle. It has a 53" wheelbase, which comes in at just 1.1" shorter than the Duke's.
To give an example of the acceleration and speed the KTM RC 390 offers, let's take a look at some findings from the magazine, Motorcycle USA. Its team found that the 2015 model was able to go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and 0 to ¼ mile in 14.21 seconds. When it comes to braking distance, this same test showed a distance of 148.2 feet from 60 to 0 mph with ABS disabled and 151.7 feet without ABS disabled. In 2017, the KTM RC 390 went through some changes. A slipper clutch was added, along with a larger 320mm front brake rotor, ride-by-ride wire throttle, larger mirrors, adjustable brake levers and a slipper clutch. There were also some changes made to the bike's look and ergonomics.
