About KTM RC200
The RC200 is the entry-level sportsbike from KTM for the Indian market. The fully-faired motorcycle, based on the Duke 200, is one of the few budget track-oriented machines on sale in India.
The RC200 uses the same 200cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with power output of 25bhp and 19Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed gearbox. This motorcycle uses the modified version of the Duke’s trellis frame chassis to extract better performance on track. With the kerb weight of just 154 kg, the RC200 has a superb power-to-weight-ratio of 162bhp per ton.
Apart from the full fairing, the RC200 also gets additional features over the Duke 200 which includes dual projector headlamps, clip-on handlebars, LED tail lamps, aerodynamic windshield, disc-brake with Bosch ABS as standard feature. The motorcycle uses 43mm inverted WP front shocks and a monoshock suspension at the rear. The LCD display provides plenty of details including two tripmeters, shift lights and low fuel indicator.
Unlike the Duke 200, this new bike gets super sticky Metzeler tyres for better road grip in both wet and dry conditions. The RC200 is manufactured and exported from the Bajaj’s Chakan facility along with the other entry-level models from KTM. The RC200 mainly competes mainly with the CBR 250R and the Yamaha ABS in the entry-level performance motorcycles segment.
