The KTM RC 125 follows the same design language as the rest of the RC range. So it gets an aggressively designed full-fairing that incorporates twin projector headlamps along with LED DRLs. Complementing its sportbike character is the sharp tail section that has a split-seat setup and LED tail lamp. Powering the motorcycle is a 124cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine similar to the 125 Duke. This motor sits under a tubular trellis frame and churns out 14.3bhp at 9,250rpm and 12Nm of torque at 8,000rpm. It comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.
The RC 125 rides on 17-inch wheels wrapped in a 110/70 front tyre along with a 150/60 section rear tyre. Suspension duties are handled by inverted forks at the front sourced from WP and a monoshock for the rear. Meanwhile, braking on the RC 125 is taken care of by a 300mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc along with a single-channel ABS.
Bookings for the RC 125 have commenced in KTM dealerships across India. The motorcycle is being offered in two dual-tone colour schemes. As for competition, the KTM RC 125 goes head-on against the Yamaha R15 V3 in the country.
