The 2020 KTM RC 390: Ready To Race
KTM’s class-leading sports machine returns for 2020, once again proving that good things can come in small packages. This sharp and sleek package takes inspiration directly from KTM’s Moto3 efforts and reworks those characteristics into a usable motorcycle that that marries together top-end sports performance with everyday practicality, making it a great ride for hammering around the twisties, but with a fuel-economy that makes it a viable daily commuting machine.
Powered by KTM’s range-topping 373cc single-cylinder fuel-injected four-stroke engine, the 2020 KTM RC 390 is arguably the class-leader in small capacity sports performance. In terms of power, the RC 390 produces a potent 41 horsepower and 26 lb-ft of peak torque, which can propel the RC 390 to a top speed of over 104 mph. It’s fast, but it also delivers power where you want and when you need it most, making it an ideal tool for cruising around the city on.
Building on the RC 390’s incredible Moto3-derived DNA, KTM has also treated the small-capacity racer with a number of impressive and unexpected additions, such as a slipper clutch to aid gear changes and improve throttle opening, and ride-by-wire throttle control for smooth acceleration. ABS is also standard equipment on the 2020 RC 390, but riders can easily disable it for real racing situations.
For 2020, the KTM RC 390 is available in a slick and stylish black and white color scheme with customary KTM orange accents. The MSRP is $5549.00.
