    I can tell you for certain, the KTM 390 is NOT the best beginner bike. That honor goes to the rebel 500 from Honda. Bullet proof reliability and in the unlikely event of needing a dealer to fix an issue. There is way more support from Honda. Something else, Honda actually honors its warrenty obigations.. KTM has a spotty reputation. Seat hight on the Honda is lower. It has more power and torque that the KTM. It also has a higher top speed than the emasculated KTM. Also, if you like a numb crotch, get the KTM. It vibrates like an old washing machine. The seat on the KTM is like sitting on a cinder block.
    Sorry KTM, Honda is better.

    Why bother with the 390 when the 690 Is out there! 390 doesn't make sense to me! Unless you're a girl of course.

      Dan Gleeballs what’s your address tough guy? I want to see how you talk face to face. Must have hurt your feelings disagreeing with you.

      You couldn't be more wrong if you tried. 56, retired from work, obviously have my own place and three motorcycles! if that's the position you're in you should have tried harder at school then you could forget all about the homo 390 and bought a proper bike!

      When you are no longer in your 20'''s or 30'''s and you are putting two kids through college and you have a big house payment, two car payments and all the other bills each month the 390 is absolutely the BEST Bike at $4,000 US Dollars. You must be a teenager living in Mommy and Daddy's basement!

      UNFINISHED FOOTSTEPS the bike is cheap but quick , if you could hang on a giant banana with two wheels well you’ve got yourself a KTM390 lol !!!! Joke aside, my point is just like you said if you could care less of what’s it’s made of you can definitely buy it but you’ll end up upgrading to a more solid, refined and more powerful bike. Ride safe ☺️

      QUICK-STAR Month ago

      @Alpha Bro I could care less what the tank is made of. What's your point? If all the mechanical parts are good, strong and reliable then the bike is good or great. Same with electronics. Problem free or tons of headaches is the only question. Not what the tank is made of.

    • Alpha Bro
      Alpha Bro Month ago

      I owned one RC390 and it definitely feels like a toy because of the plastic material for example the tank is made of plastic lol but it’s torque is unmatched for a 1 cylinder 373 cc bike . You also have to consider the handle bars and the riding position if you’re more into sport bikes. These KTM bikes are awesome but sounds a little bit like dirt bikes even with an aftermarket slip on. ( verified owner lol 😂)

      QUICK-STAR Month ago

      Does it feel little and like a kids toy or is it close iin size and appearance to the other crotch rockets?

    before you buy this bike,you should make a good relationship with the KTM Mechanic in your local area ,because you might going to need he’s help very often specially if you live in the city with a busy traffic....for the rural areas were there’s no need to stop and go constantly ,maybe it’s fine

    So I hear the following about this or some other KTM. To pass emissions these are sold very lean. So there is no spritzing gas cooling the chamber. So they blow head gaskets. This can be treated with an emissions control device.
