Why I hate RC 390?
- A Disturbance sound like auto engine in slow motion In traffic but no sound at high speed.
- Aggressive positioning causes most importantly right wrist pain & back pain for longer use.
- It only gives thrill on highway riding.
- High weight about 185 kg i cannot lift it my own if it fall down.(3+ times helped by others).
- The suspension while you driving any damaged road crossed you will be bumped almost like fall from bike.
- Rear seating dangerous, the weight of pillion rider comes to your arms and then transform to your right wrist.
- Engine heating Abnormal if you wear shot you notice it, like a car its car engine.
- No power off front light projector drains battery very quickly.

In the 6th gear the initial speed is 90 KMPL without giving much throttle
Things I love about RC 390
- Speed speed & and the engine performance on highway.
- engine Sound
- Stylish look Now its better in 2017 version.
RC 390 maintenance
1st service should be done at 1000 KM, (Mineral engine oil)

1st 3 services are free but you may charge from 3000. my bike first service done but waiting for 2nmd service 6 months gone but only reached 800 KM.
Know about KTM speedometer features loving part
It indicates Low fuel level and the remaining KM runs with the fuel. it changes based on speed & traffic. sometimes this may not get accurate.
ABS Tun off: Really ABS Doesn’t let you feel you the braking thrill. if you are enthusiast rider this hurts. TO switch off ABS in rc390 press the Abs button constantly 30 seconds after starting the bike in a neutral position.every time you have to do this on bike restart. ABS prevents you stop the bike in bumper to bumper traffic immediately this may be embarrass you.
