KTM RC200 (Upcoming)
The KTM Duke 200 has been a runaway hit in India and now there is going to be a fully-faired one called the RC200. Unveiled at the 2013 EICMA, the RC200 shares many of its components with the Duke 200 including the engine that has been re-tuned to take on the additional weight of the fairing. It also gets new projector headlights which add to its aggressive look.
The engine is the same liquid cooled 200cc mill from the naked bike that produces 25bhp and 19Nm of torque. It has been mated to a six-speed sequential box and is chain driven. Despite the faring, the RC200 weighs just 137 kilos (without fuel) which funnily enough is just 1kg more than the Duke 200. On the safety front, the RC200 gets a 300mm front disc and 230mm disc in the rear with the former getting a radially mounted ABS mechanism. We expect that this feature will soon make its way into the naked Duke 200 also.
The bike will be shown at the 2014 Auto Expo and will most likely be launched for the Indian market by the middle of next year once it has made its international debut.
