Top 10 New Motorcycles To Watch For At EICMA
We’re excited about all the new bikes being unveiled at EICMA, of course, but the KTM RC390 is one we’re especially excited about. Serving as the base platform for a spec racing series next year, the road-going version of the RC390 should be an incredibly fun motorcycle to flog through some corners, just like its big brother, the RC8.
Powered by a 373cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke thumper, power output is expected to be around 43 hp, which means about 38 or so to the rear wheel. While these numbers are by no means earth-shattering, KTM’s motto, “Ready to Race” is still apparent throughout the RC390. In traditional KTM style, the 390 uses a steel trellis frame, and is kitted with WP suspension, sporty geometry numbers, and Brembo brakes. KTM claims a dry weight of 324 pounds. Combine these ingredients and you have a legitimate sportbike we can’t wait to thrash around the canyons and our local racetracks.
