In this paper, for any even integer
 $n = 2m\ge4$
, a new construction of
 $n$
-variable rotation symmetric bent function with maximal algebraic degree
 $m$
is given as
 $f(x_0,x_1\cdots,x_{n-1}) = \bigoplus\limits_{i = 0}^{m-1}(x_ix_{m+i})\oplus \bigoplus\limits_{i = 0}^{n-1}(x_ix_{i+1}\cdots x_{i+m-2} \overline{x_{i+m}} ),$
whose dual function is
 $\widetilde{f}(x_0,x_1\cdots,x_{n-1}) = \bigoplus\limits_{i = 0}^{m-1}(x_ix_{m+i})\oplus \bigoplus\limits_{i = 0}^{n-1}(x_ix_{i+1}\cdots x_{i+m-2} \overline{x_{i+n-2}} ),$
where
 $\overline{x_{i}} = x_{i}\oplus 1$
and the subscript of
 $x$
is modulo
 $n$
.
