- KTM RC models become more expensive
- RC 200 and RC 390 are due for a major update soon
KTM has recently increased the prices of its fully-faired RC models in India. And it’s surprising to see that the RC 125 and the RC 390 have received their second price hike within a month. While the bump for the 125cc offering is minor at Rs 1,466, the RC 200 and the RC 390 have become substantially dearer by Rs 3,021 and Rs 3,803, respectively.
The latest ex-showroom Delhi prices of all the RC models are mentioned below:
KTM RC 125: Rs 162,566
KTM RC 200: Rs 204,096
KTM RC 390: Rs 260,723
Although these consistent price increments by KTM might be disappointing for the potential RC buyers, they would be glad to know that the 200cc and 390cc iterations are due for a major overhaul soon. In fact, the upcoming version of the former was recently spotted at Bajaj’s Chakan facility and you can read about it here. While the launch of the next-generation models is likely to bring along another hefty price hike, we hope it will be justified with a host of desirable updates.
KTM has equipped the RC 125, RC 200 and the RC 390 with identical design and features, with different graphics setting them apart visually. While the cycle parts are also nearly the same, the biggest difference is in the engine. The ballistic 373cc motor of the largest machine puts out a meaty 42.3bhp and 35Nm. Meanwhile, the RC 200 churns out more manageable 24.6bhp and 19.2Nm while the 125 is the friendliest of the lot as it makes 14.5bhp and 12Nm.
