Indicating the launch to happen soon. The present KTM 390 RC already has the BS6, 373.3 cc engine is a single-cylinder, 4 Valve, liquid-cooled, FI, DOHC.
The 373.3 cc engine makes 43.5 PS @ 9000 rpm and 36 Nm @ 7000 rpm, so we feel there may not be any engine changes.

However, KTM will bring changes in style and design. We can also observe from the spy shots that the upcoming RC 390 gets a bit upright stance.
The spy shots also show the next-gen KTM 390 RC 2021 will have LED lights and will come with an updated frame, wheels, subframe and new exhaust.
What more to expect? A new TFT speedo with KTM having a quick shifter as standard in the upcoming RC 390.
Mindwell, the current BS6 390 RC has a slipper clutch responsible for making your rides smooth and mitigating engine braking outcomes when riders decelerate.
