The 2022 KTM RC models now come with a revised front-end with a larger look, which not only gives the bikes more presence but also provides the rider with better wind and weather protection. The RC models also feature a new LED headlamp unit with integrated turn indicators.

The side and rear profiles receive minimal updates. The 2022 KTM RC features split seats, with the rear seat said to offer better cushioning for pillion comfort. KTM has also increased the fuel tank capacity to 13.7-litres, offering better range between fill-ups. Apart from the above changes, both the 2022 KTM RC125 and RC 390 come with updated body graphics and paint schemes.

KTM has also redesigned the trellis frame on the 2022 RC models, which along with the new wheels and brakes has reduced the overall weight by up to 4.4 kg. The 2022 KTM RC 390 now has a dry weight of 155 kg.

The 2022 KTM RC 390 now comes with fully adjustable suspension setup at both ends. KTM has also fitted the 2022 RC 390 with supermoto ABS with its disc brakes at either ends. It also features cornering ABS, lean-angle traction control and an optional bi-directional quick-shifter.
