    Default KTM RC 200 & 390 Launch, on 9 September, 2014, deliveries from October: xBhp News

    KTM RC 390 launch has been confirmed by KTM CEO Stefen Pierer for 2014.


    KTM CEO Stefen Pierer confirmed that the RC390 would be launched in 2014 world over. The RC390 built across the KTM Duke 390 engine platform would meet a big demand for affordable, quality sport bikes for the lower displacement class he said.

    The confirmation came in the advent of the ADAC Junior Cup, sponsored by KTM at the German MOTO GP.

    KTM and ADAC have presented the KTM RC 390 Cup machine for the new ADAC JUNIOR CUP POWERED BY KTM, being introduced at the 2013 MotoGP of Germany at the Sachsenring. For the coming year, the RC 390 is to be the new machinery for the Brand Cup for up-and-coming young racers.
    By introducing the motorcycle that will be used for the 2014 ADAC Junior Cup powered by KTM, KTM takes another important step in extending its activities on asphalt.

    Following the successful entry into the Moto3 World Championship KTM brought the World Championship title to Austria in the premiere year and the completion of the Duke range of naked bikes with the 125, 200 and 390 displacement models, there will now also be a fully faired sports bike available for sale. In typical fashion, there is a direct connection to motorsports. The ADAC Junior Cup powered by KTM will see the RC 390 in action for the first time worldwide as the exclusive motorcycle used in this Brand Cup competition.

    Naturally it is not difficult for the sports motorcycle manufacturer from Mattighofen, Austria, to make the connection between racing and series production. In short: as always, KTM once again underlines that it is always Ready to Race in every aspect by presenting the RC 390 Cup at the eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland.
    KTM CEO Stefan Pierer: We developed a pure GP racing machine for the Moto3 World Championship. In contrast, the RC 390 Cup is based on a series model project. Both of these two projects were given the highest priority because the development of lower displacement, high quality street bikes are among our core activities. The new KTM RC 390, which will be available for sale in 2014 will meet a big demand for affordable, quality sport bikes for the lower displacement class.

    The KTM CEO adds: Since 1993, ADAC has achieved a great deal with excellent work with up-and-coming riders in the Junior Cup. The promotion and support of young talent is also a very important aspect for KTM. We are happy to put a lot of energy into this because we actively engage in the promotion of young riders both in offroad sports and on asphalt. We are honestly thrilled that we will be able to support the ADAC Junior Cup as the KTM 390 Cup with all KTM bikes. Also because with ADAC we have a committed, reliable and strong partner in which everyone involved is a professional.

    Ideal for young racers: KTM RC 390 Cup
    The primary development objective of the fully faired RC 390 Cup bike was to enable affordable junior racing with the best possible sporting potential. To achieve this, the Cup RC bike has a strong and reliable heart of the most modern kind. 375 cc displacement, four valve technology, liquid cooled, two oil pumps, electronic Dellorto fuel injection these are the core features of the single cylinder, four stroke engine that is set to release around 38 horse power in the Cup bike and, which incidentally will be very fuel efficient even at full throttle.

    As well as having more than adequate performance for junior racers, the RC specifications portfolio also ensures the best possible ride-ability, reliability and service-friendly features. The primary intention of the Brand Trophy competition is to discover and promote talent among young riders.
    To suit the aerodynamically refined fairing, the RC 390 Cup comes with a high quality chassis together with the typical KTM tubular steel trellis frame. The lightweight, mesh robot-welded tubular steel combines precise handling with perfect stability at every speed. The robust construction is another plus in the event that the bike makes contact with the ground. It also provides easy access for maintenance.
    High quality suspension elements, developed together with WP Suspension as well as a performance-oriented four piston caliper braking system completes the youngsters racing machine. Especially practical for sporting activities are the numerous PowerParts directly developed by KTM and the special accessories that will ensure both a professional and economical activity in the Brand Cup competition.

Top modern, safe, efficient and fast: the RC 390 Cup plus the strong cooperation with ADAC hits the spot when it comes to what KTM envisages for motorsports for the younger generation.

    Every Motorcycle has a tale to be told and there is no greater privilage in the life of a rider than to have truly understood what his Motorcycle stands to tell. Some of the greatest stories in the world are not written, they are experienced.

    Yes, they share same trellis frame, suspension, exhaust, brakes and everything.

    RC390 will be worth the wait in more than one way .

    ^ Not bad! Did you use P200NS as a base?

    This is how the RC390 might look like.

    This is a great news for the moto enthusiasts. I just hope that, at least the fully-faired version of the 390cc would yield a better top end.
