2022 KTM RC 390 Is Making Us Wait Again; Launch Timeline Revealed

2022 KTM RC 390 is making its fans wait a little while longer… now it is expected to launch in the month of June…

So, we know a lot about the 2022 Version of the KTM RC 390. We know how it looks, we know what colours it gets, we know what changed & improved, we know what remains the same and, because of one slip-up, we know what it will cost in India when it launches

But what we still do not know is when it will officially launch. And another thing we do not know is will it get adjustable suspension on our version..

2022 KTM RC 390 Launch Timeline

So, while we are waiting to get answers to above questions and the KTM RC 390 fans are waiting (im)patiently waiting for the official launch to happen, an online portal shares the timeline of the probable launch of the 2022 KTM RC 390 in India. 

It has been revealed that the 2022 KTM RC 390 launch has been delayed by a month, and now the flagship supersport from KTM will launch in the month of June 2022. The date, again, is still unknown but the month is somewhat confirmed by the ‘dealer sources’ of the online portal that shared the news.

New KTM RC 390 – What All We Know

As we have mentioned earlier, we know that the 2022 Version of RC 390 will ask a starting price of Rs. 3,13,922/- (ex-showroom). This is a hefty jump of nearly Rs. 36,000/- from the previous version. This price hike has also fueled the rumours that maybe the flagship supersport will finally be getting adjustable suspension in India. 

The new RC 390 will be sporting two new colour schemes – KTM Factory Racing Blue & KTM Electronic Orange. The KTM Factory Racing Blue colour, as the name suggests, is the official factory colour of the KTM Racing team in various disciplines they compete in and is showcased on all new & updated models launched this year. 

Other changes that are confirmed on the 2022 RC 390 includes lighter chassis, including new lighter wheels, 40% larger air-box, better aerodynamics thanks to re-designed fairing, improved suspension tuning and 15 mm raised handle-bars. 

Other than the changes mentioned above, the rest of the bike remains largely the same. It will still utilise 320 mm single-disc unit at the front equipped with radially mounted 4-piston ByBre calipers at the front coupled with 230 mm disc with single-piston caliper at the rear. 

Powering the supersport will be the staple BS-VI compliant 373 cc, single-cylinder, DOHC engine putting out 42.9 HP at 9,000 RPM and 37 Nm of torque at 7,000 RPM. The engine will be connected to a 6-speed transmission aided by a slipper clutch and optional Quick-shifter. 

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that this launch timeline does not receive any more delays…
