Highlights

  • KTM 390 Duke, RC 390 now being despatched with MRF tyres
  • The company is having trouble sourcing German Metzeler tyres
  • The prices of the motorcycles stay the same as before

Recent reports suggest that the updated KTM RC 390, which was launched recently, along with the KTM 390 Duke, now get MRF Revz C1 tyres instead of the German Metzeler M5 Sportec tyres that were earlier offered as part of the standard equipment. The MRF Revz tyre range is also used on the KTM 200 range and the 250 Duke as well. There may be a possibility of having difficulty in sourcing the Metzelers tyres during the pandemic, which is why KTM chose to offer MRF rubber on the RC 390 and the 390 Duke. The prices of both motorcycles stay the same as before.

The KTM RC 390 is priced at ₹ 2.53 lakh while the KTM 390 Duke is priced at ₹ 2.57 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi. Both motorcycles get the same BS6 compliant single-cylinder engine which displaces 373 cc and makes 43 bhp of maximum power at 9,000 rpm along with 37 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a six-speed gearbox.

At the moment, it is unclear whether the prices of the RC 390 and the 390 Duke will be revised or whether this is a permanent solution. Maybe, the company could revert back to selling the 390 bikes with Metzelers when the pandemic situation improves. But for the moment, the KT M390 Duke and the RC 390 will continued to be sold with MRF tyres and at the same price as before.
