KTM RC390 vs Yamaha R25

Arguably two of the most track focused sport bikes to be available....

KTM RC390:

43 BHP
25 ft-lbs

Yamaha R25:

35 bhp
20.6 ft-lbs

KTM endorses a ready to race philosophy so I see the KTM RC390 or RC200 being the stiffest competition for the R25. I do know the KTMS come with a full WP race suspension all the way around, so hopefully R25 can counter with a similar race bred suspension...

I wonder how the two will stack price wise...

Both of these bikes look amazing. I just wish the KTM wasn't so flashy. If it was up to me it would be in all white or all black.

For a bike with an underslung exhaust it sure does have some good clearance.
