KTM RC 390 is one of the most celebrated motorcycles in its segment. It is loved by the enthusiasts and the budding riders who are in the process of honing their skills of riding a supersport motorcycle. The RC 390 is admired for its sharp styling, aggressive riding stance, raw power-delivery, and spot-on dynamics. However, owners are often seen wanting more from their possessions. Hence coming across a modified example is not a tough job either. We recently came across a tuned KTM RC 390, which now gets a quick shifter and a custom ECU remap. The motorcycle belongs to YouTuber Jhampa66, and the aforementioned modifications have been detailed in the video.

The host showcases its installation in the video. He downloads the application on his laptop, which is required to install the map. Then, he follows a set of steps on the PowerTRONIC application to install the custom ECU map. After which, the host downloads the required map from PowerTRONIC’s website and finally installs the map. Moreover, the host also explains the parameters, which have to be set in the ECU application for the installation of the quick shifter.
