Written By:

KTM unveiled the RC 390 at EICMA* and the 2016 model has received a few upgrades.

The 2016 RC 390 will now feature ride-by-wire or slipper clutch PASC (Power Assist Slipper Clutch) for easier downshifts. Another notable feature is the new exhaust system, which now runs along the rear wheel. The new exhaust system will play a vital role to reduce emissions and meet EURO 4 standards.

Other upgrades, come in the form of a switchable Anti-lock braking system (ABS), which is assisted by new Brembo (320mm) brakes up front. Also seen are bigger mirrors and adjustable levers.
