Fully fledged race replica KTM RC 390

The RC 390 is a racing machine in the most literal sense because it is the street-legal version of the very machine on which tomorrow’s GP pilots will join the fight for honour and points in the “ADAC Junior Cup powered by KTM” 2014.

The concept speaks for itself: a bike with the weight of a 125 but the power and performance of a veritable sport bike. Thanks to design refinements like vertically stacked gearbox shafts, the sophisticated DOHC single of the RC 390 is extremely compact and weighs in at a mere 36 kilos. Thanks to its four-valve cylinder head with DLC-coated finger followers, dry-sump lubrication with crankcase evacuation, and three-way catalytic converter, it has everything to combine 32 kW (44 hp) of maximum power with impressive refinement, extreme reliability and great ecological credentials.

WP suspension components matched to the dynamic performance, as well as a top quality braking system with disengageable ABS ensure top precision, full control and maximum safety – perfect conditions to vanquish riders of much bigger super sport bikes on the race track. This is the ideal tool for racing rookies, but also for returning riders with high octane fuel in their veins and well versed sport riders with a penchant for understatement.

With disengageable ABS. Extremely powerful 1-cylinder, 4-stroke DOHC engine, electronic fuel injection, 3-way catalytic converter, and balancer shaft. Max. output: 32 kW/44 hp, emissions: Euro 3. Ultra-light trellis frame, extremely light-weight die-cast aluminium swingarm. High-quality 43 mm USD front forks from WP Suspension. Powerful braking system developed in co-operation with Brembo with 300 mm front brake disc. Wheels and especially grippy Metzeler tires in sport dimensions (110/70ZR17 front, 150/60ZR17 rear). Comprehensive multi-functional cockpit. Rear view mirrors with integral indicators.
