2022 KTM RC390 launch delayed

One of the most anticipated KTM launches – no, not the 890 Duke – the new-generation RC390 has been delayed. Due to the semi-conductor shortage, the launch will mostly happen next month.

The 2022 KTM RC390 which could have been launched by now, is seeing some difficulties. KTM is having some trouble sourcing the semi-conductors for the upcoming RC390. However, the company is not at fault here as the global automotive market is seeing a dip due to the chip shortage. KTM is currently prioritising the current models on sale and not generating a delivery backlog which is a smart move. The chip shortage has created a major delay in the delivery of cars as well as motorcycles, this has caused an uneven hike in price across the market. Thus, it seems to be a wise decision by KTM to delay the launch of the KTM RC390 and not change its price untimely.

The KTM R390 will be launched by the end of March-2022, and given the difficulties in production, expect a steep price tag as well. That being said, KTM India is likely to introduce the 2022 390 Adventure first – mostly by the end of this month. The new 390 Adventure has been spotted at the dealership yards as well.

 The new KTM RC390 is likely to see a price marker close to Rs 3 lakh (ex-showroom). It will mainly rival the TVS Apache RR310 BTO and the Kawasaki Ninja 300.
