Video comes to us straight from the Milan floor, walk around of the new KTM RC 390 based on the KTM Duke 390.

The headlight does not look very bright or big at all and it would also be nice to get a shorter body piece for the plate on the back. Wish there were some more pics of the KTM Duke 390 from SEMA on the forum. I wonder if anyone on here made it down over to Milan (unlikely, I know.)

I love it. Only thing I would ask for, for now, is a traditional analog RPM gauge. On a race bike like this it helps to have something like that.

yea agreed, much prefer the needle to a digital read out, you can get the gist of where you are just from a cursory glace as opposed to reading a number layout...

I have never been so attracted to orange and black until now....

the headlights might not be so bright because of the angle I would imagine the beam of light to be at a lower focus. Sooo I need to see it in person ;)

same here, never thought that color combo would look so good together, it just goes to show a color combo like this just needs a good eye to bring it all together in a creative way.

I think the color combo on the KTM Duke is great. Orange and black, but not Halloween. I would have to see what the headlight is like in person. It doesn't look the biggest or brightest. I guess you can always replace the bulb if it isn't to your liking. Anybody planning on replacing the headlight when they get their KTM Duke?

Let's be honest it works. The color scheme just points to KTM for what they are known for in terms of color.

I can see some wanting some other choice in colors.

You do have a point, it's best that KTM just sticks to being who they are and not changing it. What good would it be if they just made another bike that looks like a CBR, Ninja, etc. Got to love how unique these bikes are.
