However, this KTM RC 390 and the TVS Apache RR310-rival was recently seen through spy pictures that give a glimpse at the styling of the motorcycle.

In terms of design, the new Aprilia RS440 will draw styling cues from its bigger siblings, the RS660 and the RSV4. Thus, it will feature a twin-pod headlight, full-fairing design, fairing-mounted rear-view mirrors, muscular fuel tank, split-style seat, and side-slung exhaust. We expect the colour options to be similar to the bigger RS series models. We also expect the feature list to be at par with its rivals and thus the RS440 could come equipped with full-LED lighting, a TFT console, and Bluetooth connectivity. It will be interesting to see if Aprilia gives this product features such as traction control system and a quickshifter to match the KTM RC390.
