A low-resolution image of the much-anticipated 2021 KTM RC 390 sportbike recently got leaked through the brand’s future product portfolio presentation. Based on the spy photos and the recently leaked image, SRK Designs has created a high-resolution digital rendering of the next-gen KTM RC 390 to give the audience a glimpse of what to expect from the 2021 model of the sports bike in terms of design.
Coming to the front end of the 400cc-segment sportbike, the updated model features a revised headlight which is now a single pod unit while one can expect the brand to offer all-LED headlight and taillight setup to the updated motorcycle. The overall design language of the motorcycle has also been updated and now features more dominant lines and contours in addition to getting a dark blue and bright orange colour combination.
