KTM RC 125 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Has a refined and potent 124cc engine
    • Offers good handling
    • Excellent braking setup
  • Could be Better

    • Riding position is too aggressive for city riding
    • Is pricey
    • Could get better features

BikeWale's Take

The KTM RC 125 makes the RC brand more accessible and is aimed at novice riders wanting a fully-faired motorcycle. The bike gets top-spec suspension and braking setup along with a refined engine. And while the bike gets a commited riding position that is good for the race track, it can be uncomfortable to ride in the city.
