2023-KTM-RC-390-OBD-1 C

The KTM RC 390 is an ambitious young man’s and woman’s motorcycle that continues to impress with its performance and handling. It’s been like this since day one in 2014 when it debuted in India, and it continues to be the same in 2023. This is one reason why it remains popular among youngsters in India after seven years of launch.

KTM’s small-capacity, sporty motorcycles have always impressed me regarding style and performance. The Austrian company has been in the Indian market for a couple of years, and its popularity has only increased with every new model it has introduced.
