        Following a series of leaks, spy shots, and even KTM posting images of the bike a bit too early on its official website, the video teaser for the 2022 RC 390 has finally dropped.

        On Instagram, KTM gave fans ample amounts of racetrack footage, where race leather-clad riders giving the revamped version of its 400cc-class sportbike a good thrashing, as well as a look at the componentry, and even a full frontal view of the bike.

        Gone is the sharp, slanted nose of the outgoing RC 390; it’s replaced with a single headlight (like the Duke naked bike’s) that is flanked by what appear to be cornering lights. Bodywork seems to be more substantial, and is painted in a white and orange scheme in a possible homage to the 1190 RC8 superbike, which also sported the same livery with a single headlight.

        We also spotted the 110/70-17 front and 150/60-17 rear tires; single rotor setup disc brakes on both ends; Bybre (By Brembo) branding on the calipers; an inverted fork; and ABS.

        At one point in the teasers, the new RC 390 is set up for track use by removing what seemed to be mirrors, pegs, and other non track-essential pieces. KTM has likely designed this machine to be a bike that you can ride to work during the week, then quickly transform into a track weapon on the weekends. Aiding this concept is the caption, which reads, “From the street, straight to the track.”
