KTM RC 125 is a sports bike available at a starting price of Rs. 1,86,552 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 2 colours. The KTM RC 125 is powered by 124.7cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 14.75 bhp and a torque of 12 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, KTM RC 125 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This RC 125 bike weighs 162 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 13.7 liters.
The KTM RC 125 receives heavy updates for 2022 in the styling, features and mechanical departments. With a completely new bodywork that has been inspired by the KTM RC8, the RC 125 might look less sharper but is seemingly more aerodynamic than before. It sports a bubble type visor along with re-designed fairing and fuel tank. The distinctive twin projector lamps have made way for a single halogen unit with the turn indicators fitted on the fairing. Even the sub-frame has been tweaked and the pillion seat is now flatter and more spacious.
All of the revisions to the bodywork have resulted in a 3.4kg weight reduction, even though the 2022 RC 125 gets a bigger, 13.7-litre fuel tank. Underneath, the 124cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine has received minor changes like a larger airbox that is said to offer better lower-end torque. KTM has also revised the radiator so that the RC 125 runs cooler.
In terms of features, the new KTM RC 125 features an LCD instrument cluster, a much-needed change over the dated, orange-backlit unit it came with earlier. While the suspension setup consisting of a WP-sourced inverted forks up front and a monoshock at the rear, is similar to the older gen, the braking setup have been revised. The RC 125 now uses a 320mm disc up front that is bigger than 200mm disc it used previously. On the other hand, the 230mm rear disc remains the same. Moreover, the RC 125 now sports lighter, 5-spoke wheels.
In terms of competition, it will take on the Yamaha R15 V4 in India.
