KTM_RC_390_MM_009

Supersports is one of the popular bike category for so long. The category exudes speed and performance. This has been to the factor that supersports styling is the style used in professional racing namely in MotoGP and WSBK.
The particular supersports from KTM, the RC390, embodies the statement of speed and performance really well. It got all the packages to be a great supersports bike. Great chassis, great engine, high performance and of course great design.

Looks
KTM RC390 is an interesting bike in terms of design. When I see the concept first by KTM, it looks very sharp and carry the silhoutte of the KTM RC250GP which is being used in Moto3 racing series. What’s even better is that, the concept has been taken into the production with minimal changes in the overall design. It is still sharp, and most important, it is different than the rest of the supersports in its category. The iconic double front headlamp with double J LED fairing light is distinguishable from far to be a KTM. The rear lights also very interesting with a strong presence of the red light bar. This has to be one of my favourite rear light design so far. It looks different, creative and feels like it is designed by someone who knows bikes and love it very much.  Continue reading “2014 KTM RC390 Review – lightweight and track-ready -RM27,500”

2015 KTM RC200 and RC390 street legal supersports machine launched in Malaysia by Eurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd – RC200 RM16,888 and RC390 RM27,500 (basic)

RC200-priceEurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd has unveiled its duo of super sport series named RC200 and RC390 here in Shah Alam, Malaysia. The subject of this bike is to make it more track friendly and appeal to younger rider that are starting to learn to ride track bikes. Personally, I like the double headlight cluster that is enclosed in elongated frame that looks very different that what we always see. This might be the iconic look for KTM super sports bike for years to come as what BMW have done with the squinty headlight of the S1000RR.

On the first impression, this bike looks like the one bike from the racer in Moto3 series. The one in Moto3 is 250cc whereby the KTM RC200 are 199.5c and the KTM RC390 is 373.2cc. We can say that the RC series is the mix of the supersports style of the Moto3 racer and the base model from the Duke series. RC200 are able to produce maximum output of 25hp while the RC390 at 44hp.   Continue reading “2015 KTM RC200 and RC390 street legal supersports machine launched in Malaysia by Eurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd – RC200 RM16,888 and RC390 RM27,500 (basic)”

Just a little bit late than rumored earlier for the launch in Q2 2014, now we are getting closer to see the arrival of the Race Competition series from KTM in October.
As featured in Harian Metro today, Eurotech is predicting to sell about 5,000 units of the bike soon.

KTM 200 Duke Radiator Guard – the better guard for your radiator – RM80

KTM-Radiator-Guard-200-Duke

Available in Malaysia, you can now fit this standard parts for India’s KTM Duke radiator guard. The material is made from plastic but by the way it looks, it is thick enough and can withstand the weather elements. The price is also affordable at less than RM80. For me, this is a better radiator guard as compared to the ones made by aluminium or even steel since this one doesn’t restrict airflow and the ducts are angled for better air to go through it.    Continue reading “KTM 200 Duke Radiator Guard – the better guard for your radiator – RM80”

KTM unveiled its trio of super sport series named RC in EICMA, Italy. The trio are RC125, RC200 and RC390. The subject of this bike is to make it more track friendly and appeal to younger rider that are starting to learn to ride track bikes. Personally, I like the double headlight cluster that is enclosed in elongated frame that looks very different that what we always see. This might be the iconic look for KTM super sports bike for years to come as what BMW have done with the squinty headlight of the S1000RR.

You might already know the nice features of this bike that include steeper steering angle and more forward riding position. The wheelbase are much shorter for that ‘flickability’ manner. It retains the rigid Trellis frame from the Duke base model. Seeing this bike on the road will surely turns some heads around since the style is really noticable and spark a chat between rider and onlookers. Just enjoy the high resolution gallery after the jump and enjoy the sleepless night thinking of this bike:  Continue reading “2014 KTM RC125, RC200 & RC390 officially unveiled – street legal super sports machine”
