The KTM RC 125 isn’t hard to fathom. It’s the 125 Duke engine in the RC 200 frame. But if you thought that makes for a mild, boring sports bike, you’d be wrong! The 14 bhp engine produced adequate power but the vastly more capable chassis makes you feel wonderful! This is a superb bike for beginners. At ?1.47 lakh ex-Delhi, it is priced a wee bit high though. Watch our first ride review and tell us what you think!
KTM India has launched the RC 125, not long after it launched the 125 Duke. The RC 125 borrows the styling and components from the bigger RC siblings, namely the RC 200 and RC 390 and shares its 124.cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected motor with the 125 Duke. The RC 125 boasts a 14.5PS, 12Nm motor which is paired with a 6-speed transmission. KTM RC 125 price in India is set at Rs 1.47 lakh, which makes it more expensive than the Rs 1.39 lakh Yamaha R15 V3 and significantly pricier than the KTM 125 Duke, priced at Rs 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom). KTM RC 125 fuel-efficiency is expected to mimic that of the 125 Duke but maybe slightly lower owing to its heavier 154 kg dry weight.
