KTM had gone on a launch spree in the last week of January 2020 when it introduced BS6-updated models of all the bikes in its India line-up, except for the 790 Duke. Besides the revised engine, each motorcycle is bestowed with new graphics and the RC 125 BS6 truly grabbed our attention with its swanky set of new clothes. So why not feast our eyes once more by checking out the detailed images of the KTM RC 125 BS6.
The new model of the baby RC sports a combination of orange fuel tank with white fairing sporting a bold ‘RC’ decal running across the fairing.
The funky paint scheme on the body panels are nicely complemented by bright orange alloy wheels.
Besides the unique paint job, the overall razor-sharp sporty design of the motorcycle remains identical to its larger siblings, the RC 200 and 390.
The pointed front fairing houses dual projector headlamps accompanied by tiny LED position lamps and mirror-mounted LED turn indicators.
While the RC 125 borrows its LCD instrument cluster from its Duke sibling, it gets a triple-clamp clip-on handlebar which results in a much more aggressive riding position than the Duke.
Based on a steel trellis frame, the motorcycle gets WP-sourced USD forks and monoshock for damping and disc brakes with ByBre radial calipers for both ends.
Powering the motorcycle is a BS6-compliant 124.7cc, single cylinder, fuel-injected engine which produces 14.3bhp at 9,250rpm and 12Nm at 8,000rpm.
Despite packing a smaller displacement motor, the RC 125 features elements such as liquid-cooling and a six-speed gearbox, similar to its larger siblings.
In terms of body style, purpose and pricing, the KTM RC 125 competes against Yamaha’s highly popular, the YZF R15 V3.
