Good news small-displacement sport bike fans, as KTM North America has finally confirmed the KTM RC390 for the American market. The 375cc four-stroke single-cylinder street bike is good for 44hp, and tips the scales at 325 lbs dry.

On the larger side, displacement-wise, compared to the Honda CBR300R, Kawasaki Ninja 300, and Yamaha YZF-R3, the KTM RC390 also packs a bit more on the price tag. Pricing will be $5,499 MSRP, in the United States.

Our European friends have been enjoying the RC390 across the pond, and finally KTM USA has felt confident enough with the RC390’s sales there to bring the small-displacement machine to North America.

Brands like Honda and Kawasaki have already had great success with their 250cc/300cc machines in the USA, and Suzuki and Yamaha are looking to capitalize on that situation as well.

The 2015 KTM RC390 will come with a trellis frame, WP upside-down 43mm front forks, LED lighting, ABS, lightweight cast aluminum swingarm, and lightweight aluminum wheels.
