It's so close that you can almost taste it. The KTM RC390 should be released in the second half of 2014. Indian sources report that the bike is scheduled to arrive in the local dealers' showrooms sometime in the second half of the year.



The RC390 will be a faired, sportier version of the Duke 390. It should receive some transmission and ECU tweaks to alter the power and torque deployment, and turn it into a more lively machine. All this is to make the RC390 closer to what bigger sport bikes are like.

The frame of the RC30 is pretty much the same as the Duke 390 with some minor changes. It will have a steeper rake and less trail, favoring sharper turns, while the subsequent shorter wheelbase will make te bike easier to flip through fast turns. The suspension will also be stiffer, and have less travel.

No exact price yet, but it is expected to cost slightly more than what the Duke 390 goes for in India.
