New KTM RC 125: Top 5 Highlights

KTM has launched the new RC 125 alongside the RC 200 in India. Both motorcycles get heavy cosmetic and feature updates for 2022 along with revised hardware. While you can read more about the RC 200 here, in this article we focus on the top five highlights of the new RC 125.

New styling

The biggest and most obvious change to the RC 125 is the new styling. KTM has chosen a more aerodynamic shape inspired by the RC8 over the previous-gen model with sharp lines. The RC 125 also does away with the twin-projector headlamp setup for a conventionally lit single-piece headlamp flanked by LED DRLs. The LED turn indicators are fitted on the front fairing too.

Moreover, KTM has also revised the ergonomics of the RC 125, making it comfier than the previous model. And the new sub-frame has also made way for a flatter and more spacious pillion seat.

New instrument cluster

While the LED projectors are missing, KTM has compensated for that with an LCD instrument cluster. Similar to the one seen on the 250 Adventure, the new unit is a welcome change over the previous model’s orange-backlit unit.

Better lower-end performance

KTM has left most of the 124cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine unchanged. However, it now comes with a larger airbox that is said to offer better torque at the lower end. Adding to that, KTM has also added a curved radiator for even more efficient cooling.

Revised hardware

Apart from the new frame, comfier ergonomics, and smoother engine, the new RC 125 also comes with revised braking hardware. The motorcycle now sports a 320mm disc as opposed to the 300mm unit on the earlier model. Moreover, the KTM RC 125 also sports lighter, 5-spoke wheels and boasts of a larger 13.7-litre fuel tank.

Colours and Pricing

KTM is offering the RC 125 in a choice of two colours- Dark Galvano and Ceramic White. And the motorcycle is priced at Rs 1.82 lakh, making it just Rs 2,000 more expensive than previous-gen RC 125. This is due to the price hikes the RC 125 received in the last few months.
