KTM RC390 - April 19, 2013, 03:56 PM

Looks like they're going to start making faired Dukes with clip-ons...wouldn't mind an RC690 at all.

Quote:
According to an interview KTM chief Stefan Pierer gave to CycleNews, a fully-faired version of the 390 Duke will debut at Italy’s EICMA motorcycle show in November. That bike will be the first of a three-model range, all based on the existing, small-capacity nakeds in the Duke range, giving us a KTM RC390, RC200 and RC125. Pierer describes the bikes as “look[ing] at little similar” to the firm’s Moto3 race bike, pictured here.
“We started out with the Duke naked bikes,” Pierer told CycleNews. “but KTM is developing another family of motorcycles based on the same platform that will be full fairing sport motorcycles with clip-on handlebars. The RC125, 200 and 390 will be launched at the EICMA Milan show in November will look a little similar to our World Champion Moto3 Grand Prix racer, which gives a good marketing linkage to that.”
“These will essentially be the same platform as the Dukes, but with different styling — the look is completely different, and I think Gerald Kiska and his designers have done a great job.”
“So the 390 Duke has already been launched as the naked version, and the fully faired RC390 model is coming at the beginning of 2014, then the RC125 and 200 in April next year, which we will use as the basis of various KTM Cup one-make race series around the world, especially in developing markets.”
“Then, we’re also developing a so-called dual-purpose or dual-sport version of each model, which I would say is a mix between supermoto and enduro. These will appear next, all made at the Bajaj factory in Chakan [India].”
The naked 390 Duke is a 373cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke naked bike that has 44 horsepower and 26 foot pounds of torque and is a blast to ride at 306 pounds (dry). Expect it to retail for around $6,500 when it goes on-sale in the US next year. The RC 390 will likely add a few dollars to that price tag and should also be US-bound some time after its European debut.

a&r
The 2014 KTM RC390 has been a long-time coming, as news of the bike has been in circulation since a leaked slide at the KTM North American dealer meeting hit the internet over two years ago. Built off of the KTM 390 Duke street bike, KTM said the RC390 would have “Moto3 inspired” bodywork when it debuted.

We got our first glimpse of the machine earlier this year, when KTM took the covers off the KTM RC390 race bike, a cup-series machine based off the still unreleased street machine. Well now the wait is over, as we have our first glimpse of the new KTM RC390, thanks to a leak on the KTM Canada website.

The differences between the street and track machines are minimal, though we have to say that the underslung exhaust makes a tremendous improvement over the race bike’s traditional side-slung piece. Like on the KTM 1290 Super Duke R, KTM is really popping its frame designs, and exposing the trellis technique even for the rear subframe (actually, the RC390 chassis is one singular trellis frame, unlike the The Beast).

Power is 43hp, while weight without fuel is 147kg (324 lbs). This means the 2014 KTM RC390 is right at the limit of Europe’s A2 tiered-license scheme, though we think American buyers will just like a light and fun attractive sport bike to zip around on. Now we just have to wait and see what the price tag will look like.

I love everything except the little beak looking thing.

Don't they already sell a factory race prepped bike to the public straight off the showroom floor for about 3k more?
