I guess once you are used to the position, it will not be a huge task to tour on the RC. I know guys who extensively tour on their R15-s.

BTW. Akhil, is that you??

Waiting impatiently to take a ride and decide between the RC and Duke 390.
I was at the Marthahalli showroom last Saturday and I overhead them telling a potential customer over the phone to check with them on the 20th regarding test rides. A month ago they told me that test rides would be available in two weeks from then (i.e. two weeks ago), so who knows?

Well!!!
They mentioned 15th for the ride last week and nothing happened yet! Hopefully I will get one before DSK offers a Benelli ride

KTM is known for building purpose-built motorcycles that excel at a singular task rather than being average at all. The RC 390 is a made-for-cornering machine. Its has the right choice of ingredients to make it one of the most enjoyable and fun loving motorcycles in the country currently. On the other hand, the 390 Duke excels in stop and go traffic as no other street bike in its segment can. Both these machines excel and are the best at what they do and eventually it is a matter of personal preference and riding habits that suits ones riding style the best.

Atleast in Bangalore, RTO approval is pending - Deliveries will start by end of this week. 20 RC390s have been received by the Mekhri Circle KTM, and are waiting for approval. Registrations should start happen after this approval.

I heard the next batch has been dispatched as well. I think we can expect 40+ RC 390s (atleast from this showroom) in Bangalore Roads in the next few days!

I was told by a KTM showroom manager that the Bangalore RTO approval for RC390 would be happening a day or two before Diwali. Hope the test ride starts post Diwali.

I heard another piece of information that RC390 waiting period is 45 days and not 3 months. It looks like RC200 has 3 months waiting period.

Touring on RC390 ?? I hope one can tour comfortably for 400 to 450 kms in a stretch.

As far as the status till Wednesday (22nd Oct), the Bangalore RTO approval is yet to come. I visited OMBR layout KTM showroom and the showroom guy was telling me that the first batch of RC390 would be on road either by the end of next week. Hope the RTO approval happens by the start of next week.
