2015 KTM Rc 390

Reminds me of a butter face, everything else is sexy except its headlight housing. What do you guys and gals think?

Great looking bike except for the headlight.

I like this one much better (390 Duke).

I really want to like the 1290, but the history of reliability and durability issues, combined with high parts and maintenance costs - not to mention availability where I live, put them out of my realm of desirability.

And yes, the RC390 is a "Butterface" - But I also remember hearing the same said about the Z1R, the GS1000S, the RZ350, the GSX1000S/GSX1100S and others "back in the day".

I am trying to keep open minded, really, I am....

Wouldn't want to ride one on the street anyway, what would be the point...

In race trim they are pure sex

As far as the Duke goes, my black one is a decent looking bike. The one above is the white version.

I took the useless belly pan off my 390 Duke. That helped a lot. I also pulled off all the warning/info stickers. They were everywhere! The reflectors and passenger pegs went into the attic, as well.

They're neat little bikes, that don't thing they're little bikes.

A lady I work with has one. I've oggled it a few times, but I agree... It's like looking at someone who's eyes are too close together... That's all you can focus on.

Got a pic of it without the belly pan?

I am looking to buy one once I relocate to India.

The nose belongs on a scooter from the '80's.
