Has KTM launched the RC 390 (2016 upgraded model) and is it comfortable for daily driving?
The 2016 KTM RC390 has been launched in India on 10 February, 2016. The bike gets a new slipper clutch, and an always “on” headlight. However, it has missed out on some features available in the European market such as a bigger front disc, a ride-by-wire system and a canister exhaust. The bike’s price has remained unchanged at INR 2,13,504 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Coming to comfort, the bike isn’t ideal for daily driving. Firstly because city drives crowded with traffic jams, and the RC390 absolutely hates this, it heats up like crazy. Secondly, the riding position is very aggressive, and the pillion seat is a little uncomfortable. The RC390 is a machine built for the tracks, so unless you’re completely mad about the bike, don’t use it as a daily commuter.
