– It's the first time when the KTM RC 390 has undergone an extensive makeover since its launch in 2013. It will sport an all-new front fascia, featuring a new single-piece LED projector headlamp (somewhat similar to the Duke 390) and panel-integrated LED DRLs on both sides with LED indicators. The windscreen of the new RC is also bigger than the existing model so it can offer greater wind protection. 

– The brand has also done away with the aggressively styled front fairing elements, giving the sportier beast a bit conventional look. The fuel tank design has also been revised and so it's capacity. 

– KTM has also reportedly worked on the ergonomics of the bike, making it more comfortable. Moreover, it also gets a new split seat setup featuring wider pillion support.  

– The exhaust system of the bike has also been altered and gets a new silver-finished heat shield.

– Besides, the upgraded KTM RC 390 also likely to get new clip-on handlebars, a new TFT instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, multiple riding modes, a quick shifter, a revised taillamp, new color schemes, and new alloy wheels with improved tires.

– Powering the 2021 RC 390 will be the same 373.5cc liquid-cooled engine as the ongoing model with identical power output – 43.5PS and 36Nm. It’ll continue to be mated to a 6-speed transmission with a slipper clutch.
