What is good and bad in RC 390?

  • RC 390 PositivesThe most powerful bike in its segment, rev-happy engine, ride-by-wire offers precise throttle inputs.
  • RC 390 NegativesCommitted riding posture, instrument console looks dated, stiff ride quality
  • Expert’s ConclusionIf you’re looking for a light, powerful, sharp-handling sportbike that’ll help you hone your skills, the KTM RC 390 makes perfect sense. However, the bike’s committed riding posture means it’s more suited for track than road. And in that case, you could consider the TVS Apache RR 310 which has been significantly improved post its BS6 update.
