2017 KTM RC 390 Design
From the looks of it, the design of the 2017 model remains almost identical to the current model. However, it does get new graphics and colour theme. Black covers a larger portion of the bike. The size of the KTM logo has been reduced, while the RC 390 lettering is more prominent now. For 2017, the RC 390 gets a side mounted exhaust instead of an under belly unit. This is a result of the more stringent Euro IV regulations. Rest of the bike remains largely the same. It features typical KTM styling with a flashy exterior.
