Bajaj Auto launched the KTM RC 390 and KTM RC 200.
In terms of styling, the new 2017 KTM RC 390 comes with a slightly tweaked design that further enhances its geometric lines.
Both the bikes get all-new racing graphics and th RC 390 can produce 43.5 PS of power while the RC 200 can put out 25 PS of power.
The new KTM RC 390 is packed to the gills with cutting-edge racing features and the new KTM RC 200 is an exciting upgrade over the previous model.
In terms of the engines, both the bikes are powered by their existing single-cylinder engines. The KTM RC 390 comes with the 373.2cc single-cylinder engine and churns out a power of 43.5 bhp and 36Nm torque. While the RC 200 is powered by the 199cc engine with dishes out 25bhp and 19.2Nm torque. Both the bikes come with a 6-speed transmission.
The two-part seat offers first class supersport ergonomics with perfect support for rider and pillion. With a seat height of 820mm rider’s seat will be even more comfortable with 12 mm thicker cushion.
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.
Equally lightweight as stable, the 17in orange painted cast light alloy wheels are fitted with grippy Metzeler tyres - 110 mm wide at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear.
The KTM RC 390´s completely newly designed exhaust system is a combination of stainless steel underbelly pre muffler and aluminium absorption-type final exhaust, similar to the system of the “BEAST”, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R.
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.
The twin headlight opens a new direction for KTM style and perfectly matches with the racing supersport look of RC.
As a special feature, the RC incorporates blinkers into the mirror structure, which not only look sporty but also contribute to the perfect aerodynamics.
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 bigger single brake disk (320mm diameter) in the front and a single piston floating caliper with a single brake disk (230mm diameter) for the rear wheel.
The forged aluminum triple clamps are eye-catchers and together with the clip on handlebars guarantee a pure supersport racing feeling.
Visually similar to the lightweight and approved Duke steel trellis frame, the orange painted frame has been modified to better fit the supersport ergonomics and dynamics. The increase of the steering head angle to 66,5 degrees results in a shorter trail, shorter wheelbase and increased ground clearance.
The 100% c has everything you could expect from a state of the art KTM motorcycle, including engaged gear, fuel gauge and service reminder information.
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.
Other than that, the RC 390 continues to be power-packed package with excellent handling dynamics. Its track-focused frame and suspension make it a very attractive entry-level sportbike.
