Aesthetically, the RC390 Cup bike shares its KTM signature bright orange wheels with the 390 Duke. The motorcycle packs in a similar four-stroke, 373.2cc, single-cylinder and liquid-cooled engine as 390 Duke, with power output kept to around 38bhp, to match the race series regulations.
The RC390 Cup deploys a tubular steel trellis frame that is mesh robot-welded, race tuned suspension from WP, that is USD telescopic front forks and a monoshock at rear. Radial mounted, four-piston caliper disc brakes are standard.
KTM’s road going, faired-in 390 will be derived from the RC390 Cup bike and is expected to sport a similar sporty profile, with the same aggressive angular lines and compact dimensions.
