This new RC 390 also will equipped with ABS, but this time rider can disengage ABS for ultra sports performance. It directly means that this new avatar will comes with 3-4 driving mods. This new bike will produce 0.5 Bhp and 1 Nm more torque, which will slightly improves the performance of bike. 20 mm more wider disc brake will drastically increase braking performance.

One more large change is with its exhaust. This new RC 390 will not equipped with under belly exhaust, new lightweight exhaust will of stainless steel. This new exhaust will improves weight and power distribution. Basically KTM focus on generating more racing genes in this product.

Some cons of this bike in perspective of Indian condition was like ground clearance and fuel tank capacity is as like previous version. Super sports features are actually support only Indian Urban roads and highways.
