The KISKA designed KTM RC390 ADAC cup bikes were sitting at KTM yesterday looking pretty sweet being prepped for the upcoming ADAC race series so I snapped some photos for you.
Here is the offical info from KTM: The primary development objective of the fully faired RC390 Cup bike was to enable affordable junior racing with the best possible sporting potential.
To achieve this, the Cup RC bike has a strong and reliable heart of the most modern kind. 375cc displacement, four valve technology, liquid cooled, two oil pumps, electronic Dellorto fuel injection – these are the core features of the single cylinder, four stroke engine that is set to release around 38 horse power in the Cup bike and, which incidentally will be very fuel efficient even at full throttle.
As well as having more than adequate performance for junior racers, the RC specifications portfolio also ensures the best possible ride-ability, reliability and service-friendly features. The primary intention of the Brand Trophy competition is to discover and promote talent among young riders.
To suit the aerodynamically refined fairing, the RC390 Cup comes with a high quality chassis together with the typical KTM tubular steel trellis frame. The lightweight, mesh robot-welded tubular steel combines precise handling with perfect stability at every speed. The robust construction is another plus in the event that the bike makes contact with the ground. It also provides easy access for maintenance.
High quality suspension elements, developed together with WP Suspension as well as a performance-oriented four piston caliper braking system completes the youngster’s racing machine. Especially practical for sporting activities are the numerous PowerParts directly developed by KTM and the special accessories that will ensure both a professional and economical activity in the Brand Cup competition.
