The new generation of RC390 has been spied that too without camouflage in Chakan, Pune. The motorcycle does not boast any badging and is painted in gloss black colour just like the manufacturers do for their test mules.
The new design is less aggressive and pointy than the current one. However, it still comes with a full fairing. The dual projector headlamps have been replaced by a single, most probably, LED unit. There will be LED DRLs on either side of the headlamp accompanied by the side turn indicators. The front fairing of the motorcycle has also been redesigned, perhaps, for improved aerodynamic efficiency and a sharper look. The structure of the fuel tank and rider ergonomics have been altered as well.
The new KTM RC 390 spy shot that the motorcycle will have a new split seat setup. KTM will also add a split type pillion grab rail. The rear cowl of the updated model seems to be a bit wider. Another interesting element of the upcoming KTM RC 390 is the updated exhaust. It appears to be more circular in construction than that of the current model and also has a silver heat shield.
The new KTM RC 390 will also have a bolt-on subframe similar to what we have seen in the KTM 390 Duke. The fully-faired motorcycle will run on new alloy wheels. There will be a new front rotor that appears to be much larger than the one available with the present model that’s on sale. The rear end of the motorcycle isn’t visible in this spy shot. KTM might implement some changes in the taillight cluster.
