I would LOVE to try that on a track day.  That's quite a sharp looking thumper.

Want isn't the same thing as intend to purchase. But maybe. It sure looks like a great toy. Track day bike, even.

But seriously... That thing looks & sounds pretty awesome. I wouldn't pay more than $6000.00 OTD for one though, if I were going to consider buying one.

That is disappointingly ugly.  I was hoping for something more like...

Hope it makes it to the US.  If this and the Triumph single both make it here, it will really heat up the small displacement market, which personally, I love!!

From Asphalt and Rubber:

Quote


Making 43hp from its 373cc thumper, the KTM RC390 is a tiny but stout machine, especially when you consider its 324 lbs wet weight (sans fuel in its 2.64 gallon tank).

Fitted with ABS brakes, braking is done at the front via a radially mounted caliper and 300mm single-brake disc, while a 230mm disc is fitted to the rear.

One of the points of conversation ahead of the RC390′s debut was its single-piece trellis frame, which KTM says is much stiffer than the one found on the Duke, and features a more aggressive chassis geometry with a steeper steering head, lesser trail, and shorter wheelbase.

Suspension is by WP, and the brakes were made in cooperation with Brembo, and sport the brand’s generic marque Bybre. Not an often talked about point, but the 2014 KTM RC390 also features the racer friendly 110/70ZR17 & 150/60ZR17 tire sizes, which continues KTM’s “ready to race” philosophy.


Read the rest and see more pics at the link.

I'm disappointed by its looks, but its components appear to be of much higher quality than this segment normally features.  No price yet.
