The faired version of the Duke 390 will launch on September 9.

Some KTM dealers are accepting pre-launch bookings for the eagerly anticipated KTM RC390 sportsbike. IndianAutosBlog learns that the booking amount in INR 30,000.

According to a dealer, the customers who book the bike now may have to wait for 1 – 3 months depending on KTM’s allotment, signalling a huge response (or a strict volume allotment for India) for the Duke 390’s fully faired sibling.

Inspired by KTM’s Motor3 race bike, the RC390 features a razor sharp fairing with LED daytime running lights on the beak. Twin headlamp elements, exposed trellis frame, Metzeler tyres, WP Suspension system and ABS are the other salient features of the small displacement super sports motorcycle.

The RC390 is powered by the Duke 390’s 373.2 cc single-cylinder powerplant which is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The liquid-cooled fuel injected motor belts out a healthy 42.9 bhp and 35 Nm of torque.

The dealer preview of the motorcycle is set to happen this month before the launch on 9th of September. The RC200 which is based on the Duke 200 is expected to follow later.

When contacted, KTM India refused to comment on the launch date of the motorcycle.
