First imported to the USA back in 2015, the KTM RC 390 is the company’s lightweight, street-legal supersport machine. Powered by the same 373cc single-cylinder as its 390 Duke naked bike sibling, the RC is a perfect option for less-experienced riders who are looking for a more aggressive, sport-inspired option or an entry-level trackday ripper. In fact, the RC also served as a platform for spec-class racing in MotoAmerica and various series around the world. Shredding apexes? No problem.
