KTM RC390 And RC200 Launched In India

Recently, KTM has launched its RC lineup motorcycles in India on a grand event held at New Delhi – one is the RC390 priced about Rs 2.05 lakh and the other one is RC200 priced about Rs 1.60 lakh. The latest RC390 and RC200 are the re-touched versions of the Duke 390 and 200, respectively.

The RC300 comes with a liquid-cooled 373 cc single-cylinder engine which can produce 43.5PS. The RC200 comes with a liquid-cooled 199.5 cc single-cylinder engine which can produce 19.5PS. Both the bikes are linked up to a 6-speed manual transmission gear box. Mutual to both the motorcycles are the 230mm and 300mm discs brakes in the rear and front respectively.

KTM has provided the RC390 and RC200 dual projector headlights and LED tail lights. The chassis panel is takes up from the Dukes and is pretty comprehensive as long as information offered to the rider is referred. ABS is regular on the RC390 version whilst it is not seen with the RC200 one. KTM says that the RC duo has been inspired by its Moto 3 and RC8 motorcycles.

The day-time operating lamps on the RC lineup can be used on the basis of the rider’s wish. The RC390 has got a black and white paint while the RC20 is painted all-black. KTM has provided the RC200 with MRF tyres and the RC390 with Metzeler tyres.

At the price range in which they’ve been launched, the HTM RC Duo rival with the Honda CBR 250R, Yamaha R15, Suzuki Inazuma, Honda CBR 150R, Ninja 300 as well as the Hyosung GT 250R. Bajaj had in the beginning, at the Auto Expo, presented the whole new Pulsar 400SS which is believed to hit the market in the near future. The RC125 is, however, not arriving in India. Bajaj reportedly said that the KTM machines are almost around 98 percent localized and while one out of three is sold in India, the remaining is exported overseas.
