    Default Sweet! RC 390 Updated! KTM has taken wraps off the new 2016 RC 390.

    Though this shouldn't be a surprise, KTM seems to have been taken the wraps off of the new updated RC 390 which has RBW (Ride By Wire) Technology and side swept exhaust.

    And with a lot more detailed photos on here.

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    I can understand why they got rid of the underbelly exhaust. Doesnt look all that exciting though...

    Any upgrades are most welcome from my side.

    How long do you think the registration starts for these new bred RC's ?

    And also how will it affect the pricing ?

    New colors bhi de dete...lol.

    If they manage to price it on par with the current RC (or maybe marginal increase) it still will be the bike to beat in India.

    Seriously, I cannot think of a better VFM product!

    I would have liked the underbelly exhaust though.

    They removed it to increase ground clearance and prevent the scraping while leaning the bike.

    Price will definitely increase. I doubt it will be a small margin...

    Yes that's the real question. Is this coming to india?? I have postponed my plans to buy rc390 after reading about these updates. This is definitely worth the wait.
