Motorcycle manufacturer KTM India is all set to launch its new generation RC range in the Indian market and soon the new generation of KTM RS 125, RC 200, and RC 390 will be introduced. Now confirming this, the company has released the first teaser of the RC range, which reads coming soon, which means that now the launch of these motorcycles in India is very near.


These three motorcycles from KTM India are going to get a major overhaul and are expected to be priced higher as compared to the existing models. In fact, the 2021 KTM RC 125, RC 200, and RC 390 have made their global debut a few weeks back with a design and mechanical updates and the company will take advantage of the positive buyer sentiment by launching them in the festive season.

There is also a possibility that the company may remove the LED headlamps and colored TFT instrument cluster from the Indian spec edition to cut costs, as the new-gen KTM RC 125 was spotted testing recently, giving the bike a halogen headlight. And there seems to be a possibility of getting an LCD instrument console.

The upcoming KTM RC 200 is expected to feature halogen headlamps and LCD instrumentation borrowed from the 250 Adventure, while the more expensive range-topping KTM RC 390 could be similar to its global version, but it may get cut in some key elements like adjustable forks at the front. Despite the fact that no official announcement has been made by the company.

The recently launched 2021 TVS Apache RR310 gets adjustable suspension with various kits to suit the needs of the buyers and the new Yamaha R15 V4.0 is also offered with features like traction control, USD Forks, and quick shifters in an attractive price range. As a result, we should expect some of the premium features found in the international spec RC series to make their way to India.

The new RC motorcycle will feature a revamped headlamp cluster with a new fairing, LED daytime running lights, and body panels. While the powertrain is not a major improvement in the output ratio but better upgrades, and increased touring capabilities cab be expected as KTM will try to attract a larger segment of buyers with all three bikes.

The new RC 125 will be powered by its existing 124,7 cc, single-cylinder engine, which develops 14.5 hp of power and 12 Nm of torque, while the RC 200 gets a 199.5 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that makes 24.6 hp of power and develops torque of 19.2 Nm. Similarly, the RC 390 bike will be powered by a 373.3 cc, single-cylinder engine that develops 43 hp of power and 36 Nm of torque. A 6-speed transmission connects the engine to the transmission.
