Autologue Design has come up with another custom body kit for the KTM RC 390. This time around, the Pune-based customizer has developed a track focused race-kit for the RC 390, called the RCX2.
The KTM RC 390 RCX2 kit is co-developed in association with ace racer Sagar Sheldekar. According to Autologue Design, the track-spec RCX2-kit includes individual bolt-on parts like front fairing with bigger a bubble visor and headlamps cover, side panels, shorter engine belly cover and a sleek tail section. Buyers can opt for the whole kit or go for individual parts according to their needs.
The KTM RC 390 RCX2 kit is available for pre-orders at an amount INR 20,000, while the race-kit will cost INR 25,000 post the pre-order period. Autologue says this is the Level-1 kit, while the Level-2 RCX2 package is still under development. The bubble visor allows the rider to properly tuck-in, while the shorter belly cover permits maximum lean angle. The sleek tail section and the roomier seat allows the rider with broader movement while hitting the track.

The aerodynamic fairing offers reduced wind drag, something which is very helpful during track racing. Apart from the cosmetic changes, Autologue isn’t offering any mechanical upgrades for the KTM RC 390. The RCX2 kit is the second kit developed for the RC 390 after the KTM RCX kit.
