KTM has a new flagship in India, the sporty RC390, and we’ve just put it through a full road test to confirm exactly how it performs in India.
The list of exotic sportbikes available now in India is seemingly unending, with a variety of quick two-wheeled machines available to cater to all rider’s tastes. Sadly, due to soaring price tags, many larger-capacity bikes retailing in India remain out of reach for most Indian enthusiasts.
Over the past few years though, KTM with Bajaj has slowly been changing things, bridging the gap between the affordability of everyday commuter bikes and the capabilities of focussed performance bikes. Now, this super successful partnership has introduced yet another motorcycle, that’s being touted as nothing short of extraordinary.
The newly launched 200 and 390 RC or Race Competition siblings are two fully faired sportbikes that share the same engines as their Duke siblings, yet ride nothing like them.
We get astride the flagship KTM RC390 to tell you how this bike performs in Indian conditions.
