THUNK,THUNK,THUNK,THUNK,THUNK… Is that a single I hear? A large displacement thumper? But how come its revving so quickly? The revs pound up and down unlike a big single pistoned engine. Turn your head around and gaze at the brand stonking new KTM RC390!
This bike has stirred up quite a bit of a mini storm around the world, even for non-bikers. Lo and behold, its in front of me now, ready for my eager hand to start piling on the gas. I tell you, even the under the gloomy street light where I’m picking it up, this baby looks not only sensationally fast even standing still, it oozes sexiness! Way different design theory has been applied here, with the right dose of angledness, and pointy futuristic styling that really presses the right buttons. One word. FRESH!
I board the bike, and immediately the feeling is of fitting in to the bike. The seat height and width fits naturally and the seat and tank meeting point is slim, it doesn’t make your thighs spread, and you’re hugging the tank nicely without squashing your crotch. The handle bars are high and angled quite flat, with a good width that gives good comfort and leverage. You’d think that by looking at the bike it’s kind of tall, but getting on it everything fits like a custom made glove. So far so good !
