Latest 2021 RC390 spy pics share fresh details of the upcoming motorcycle. It gets a completely new face and a more ergonomic riding position…
Austrian motorcycle manufacturer – KTM is heavily testing its upcoming 2021 RC range. The new-gen RC, most probably the RC390 has been spotted testing yet again. This time, the motorcycle is revealed almost in its entirety, and gives out a lot of details.
As we have reported previously, the 2021 version of the bike gets a completely redesigned front, which is quite a departure from its previous aggressive design. The new styling looks quite conventional and it may not be of liking for many.
In the new model, the company has replaced the twin projector lamps with a central LED headlamp. It makes the bike look similar to its elder sibling – RC8. Apart from that, the new RC now comes with a huge windshield, which, frankly, looks quite odd.
The biggest change, however, is that the bike now gets a more upright seating position, against the older-gen RC’s committed riding posture. This is achieved by altering the position of foot-pegs, and a new handlebar.
The 2021 RC390 also gets a larger fuel tank, which is aimed at giving a longer range, and a completely redesigned rear frame.
The bike should continue to be equipped with the same 373 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that will have to meet Euro-5 emission norms, which are roughly equivalent to Indian BS6 norms. The motor produces a healthy 44 PS power along with 37 Nm torque.
