KTM has de-listed the RC 390 supersport motorcycle from its India website. The KTM RC 390 is no longer listed under the supersport category for the Indian market. This means that the company is getting ready to launch the new-generation model in India. Plus, the new-generation model has been spied testing in India numerous times and seems to be ready for production as well. The 2021 KTM RC 390 will have a comprehensive design update, improved riding ergonomics, as well as improved cushioning for the seat. The model is also expected to pack in more features too. We expect a decent increase in the pricing as well.

The 2021 KTM RC 390 will sport a new and flatter face. The exposed dual-projector headlamp set-up has made way for a larger LED headlamp unit that now incorporates the dual-projectors.
