2021 KTM RC 390 Production Version Spotted In MotoGP-Inspired Livery
The 2021 KTM RC 390 was previously spotted testing, and now KTM ‘s official portfolio shows how it might look like the production version.
The new photo comes from the official presentation by KTM, which reveals their plans and motorbikes to come. This presentation was the same that showed the Husqvarna E-pilen.
Although the photograph of the upcoming production version of the RC 390 is not giving off anything new, it suggests new orange and blue graphics. These graphics remind us of KTM’s MotoGP bike- the RC 16.
However, the biggest rumor is that the RC 390 could receive a bump in cubic capacity, making it a 490cc spec engine.
This speculation follows up on earlier reports saying KTM was working on a 490cc engine. The rumors further claimed that this was to comply with the strict emission standards and expand KTM’s product range.
The current spec 390cc engine does, however, meet Euro-5 requirements following a recent upgrade which means it is likely to remain.
The 2021 KTM RC 390 upgrades include a new headlight section, new side-mounted LED DRLs, a new back seat, and even a revised braking system.
The RC 390 ‘s key USP was its powerful engine and the ergonomics based on the road. Although there is no news of the former, the mule indicates a more road-friendly riding triangle will appear in the vehicle.
This is by far the largest update the KTM RC series will get since its launch and if KTM chooses to bring a 490cc mill into the upcoming RC, we expect it to decimate anything and anything under 600cc!
