The first image of the production-ready 2020 KTM RC 390 has recently surfaced online. The brand has reportedly been testing the updated motorcycle variant from the past few months while the newly surfaced image of the 2020 production variant features noticeable styling updates.
Coming to the front fascia, the updated motorcycle features a revised headlight which is now a single pod unit and replaces the twin-pod illuminator seen in the current-gen RC 390 variant. 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 redesigned and now features more dominant lines and contours. The turn indicators on the motorcycle are now well integrated into the body fairing.
The fuel tank of the 2020 KTM RC 390 features revised dual-tone colour scheme as well as graphics though the overall bulkier profile has been carried onto the next-gen variant as well. In addition to this, the brand has also revised the pillion seat setup which can now be removed to access the under storage compartment. The brand has offered the all-new RC 390 with a new blue and orange colour scheme inspired from the 2020 model of the 1290 Super Duke R while the chassis has also been revised.
Powering the motorcycle will be a BS6-compliant 373.2 single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-valve, DOHC engine through the power and torque figures have not been revealed as of yet. The present-gen KTM RC 390 is capable of offering 43.5HP of maximum power and a peak torque of 37Nm. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed transmission mated to a slipper clutch as standard.
There is no confirmation if the recently leaked image is of the production-ready motorcycle or just a neat rendering. One can expect the brand to officially showcase the 2020 KTM RC 390 at the EICMA in November next year while it is expected to launch in the Indian market by the end of next year or in early 2021.
