KTM RC125 is set to launch in June this year and bookings for the same will open the same month. The KTM RC125 has already been spotted on Indian roads, and it was equipped with a saree guard – a mandatory fitment for all bikes sold in India. The fully-faired motorcycle will carry a marginal premium over the 125 Duke, which retails at Rs. 1.24 lakh*. Its price may fall in the range of Rs. 1.35-1.40 lakh, which is very close to Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0’s Rs. 1.39 lakh* price tag.
The Indian-spec RC125 will feature an underbelly exhaust that will give it cleaner and minimalist look from the sides. Visually, the RC125 carries the styling of the bigger RC models in the Indian market – the RC200 and the RC390. Thus, the feature list includes twin-pod projector headlight, LED blinkers, LED tail lamp, clip-on handlebars and a full fairing.
The RC125 will share its mechanical specifications with the 125 Duke naked roadster and thus, propelling tasks will be performed by a 124.7 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that delivers 14.5 PS of maximum power at 9,250 rpm and 12 Nm of peak torque at 8,000 rpm. This engine is currently BS-IV compliant, and it is paired with a 6-speed transmission. The BS-VI version will arrive in 2020. Expect to see the Euro-V/BS-VI ready KTM range at this year’s EICMA motorcycle show.
