KTM has further sharpened its street supersport RC 390 with the introduction of the new KTM RC390 R – a homologated, limited edition machine ready for Supersport 300 competition when combined with the optional and dedicated SSP300 Race Kit (separate kit).
Limited to just 500 units overall, this new homoglated R version embodies the typical KTM READY TO RACE spirit and builds on the abilities and pure appeal of the KTM RC390. Armed with a series of hardware upgrades, the KTM RC 390 R is also perfectly placed to suit extreme track riding use.
KTM RC390 R details
Fully adjustable WP suspension front and back was tailor made for this exciting new model, providing huge levels of adjustment in order to get the KTM RC390 R perfectly set-up for both rider and riding conditions.
With less focus on all-day comfort, a new top yoke and handlebar kit allows a more extreme racing handlebar position and adjustable for riders of all sizes. Beautifully finished, its machined construction provides precision, strength and weight saving. The addition of CNC milled, foldable brake and clutch levers provide increased feedback at fingers and are designed to flick-up in the case of a spill, helping to keep the KTM RC390 R READY TO RACE!
Other changes include a shorter intake trumpet to increase the overall efficiency of the KTM RC390 R in race conditions and to create an engine characteristic with a slightly wider power band. Finished with new high quality graphics to display the intent of this new machine, the KTM RC390 R will be available to order through official KTM dealers in Europe as well in oversea markets and will cost 8,500 euros (Approx 6.7 lakh), incl. German VAT.
KTM SSP300 race kit details
The SSP300 kit can only be fixed on the RC390 R. It aligns with the international SSP 300 FIM regulations for 2018 and offers everything which is needed for competition, including a full titanium Akrapovič SSP300 EVO02 system with race ECU, STM slipper clutch, quickshifter, wiring harness, spare wheels, a huge selection of gearing options, increased cooling system and a full bodywork kit made from lightweight and strong materials, among many other detailed parts.
The SSP300 race kit alone costs 11,000 euros (Approx 8.7 lakh) (MSRP), including German VAT, and is not compatible to existing KTM RC 390 CUP motorcycles or any RC specification before 2017.
So if you want the KTM RC390 R and/with the SSP300 race kit that equals to 8500 + 11,000 = 19500 Euros, which is just about 15.45 lakhs. (Yes, just.)
