KTM RC CUP – Countries
Thanks to the impact the supersport KTM RC 390 has made since it was let loose on roads all over the world in 2014, KTM is proud that its ‘CUP’ racing variant will battle it out in competition in no fewer than seven countries in 2015 with all of the exciting track activities communicated through a dedicated new website.
Following this successful introduction of the ADAC Junior Cup, that had its premiere in 2014 with 30 young riders successfully battling for good results, the German series is also joined by similar concepts in the United Kingdom, USA, Finland, the Netherlands and Mexico to springboard future talent in 2015. While in Italy, RC CUP machines will battle with other similar displacement bikes in the CIV Italian Speed Championship.
KTM RC CUP – Bike
The KTM RC 390 is an exciting, light and practical sports bike with a 44hp, 375cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine housed in a steel trellis chassis and fitted with top-level components. Being a KTM, the RC could only be created in the READY TO RACE way and its potential base as a competitive, capable and yet unintimidating race machine became quickly apparent.
In sporty action the CUP version of the RC 390 convinces with a huge array of readily available, performance-focused KTM PowerParts and fully-adjustable WP Suspension. Along with removing an unnecessary 9kg of weight from the unwanted road kit, the result is proven; the KTM RC 390 CUP single-minded race machine and corner expert.
The fully-adjustable suspension package not only allows for individual set up for each race; it is also a valuable learning tool for suspension set-ups. The bike has adjustable foot pegs and handlebar levers to fit different ergonomics, making it ideal for young talents that are still growing.
