KTM RC 200 Latest Updates
Part of the price revisions for the new financial year, the KTM RC 200 has become slightly more expensive. It now costs Rs 2,06,112 (ex-showroom Delhi), which is Rs 2,016 more. It has received one of the lowest hikes amongst its Austrian siblings as there’s a new bike on the way.
The new 2021 KTM RC 200 is undergoing a major overhaul in terms of design and features. It will get a new face, a bolted-on subframe, and neat little touches that should make it a sharper motorcycle. The production of the bike seems to have commenced at the Chakan plant with the launch likely to take place in the coming few months.
KTM RC 200 Price
KTM RC 200 price start at Rs. 2.09 Lakh (Ex-Showroom). KTM RC 200 is offered in only one variant – BS6.
KTM RC 200 Specifications
The 199.5cc motor has been robbed of a little performance, down by 0.83PS and 0.2Nm to 25PS and 19.2Nm. But it is still the most powerful 200cc bike in India today. And despite meeting stricter emission norms, KTM has managed to keep the underbelly exhaust system. The engine continues to feature fuel-injection but doesn’t get ride-by-wire like the 390s. The KTM signature trellis frame which holds everything together continues to be a single-piece unit, unlike the bolt-on subframe design seen on the Duke. WP suspension is present at both ends – an upside-down fork and preload-adjustable monoshock. The bike is brought to a stop by ByBre disc brakes at both ends (300mm/230mm) with the assistance of dual-channel ABS. The 9.5-litre fuel tank could prove too small if you’re looking to tour long distances.
KTM RC 200 Design
Not much needs to be said about the design: it’s the same fully-faired look that we’ve grown familiar with over the last 6 years. What’s new on the BS6 version are the graphics schemes and colour combinations on offer. The bike features a sculpted appearance with the highlights being the twin projector headlights up front, underbelly exhaust system and a sharp, steeply-rising tail section.
KTM RC 200 Features
The RC 200 gets and LED tail-lamp and turn indicators, back-lit switchgear and fully-digital instrumentation, though it’s an LCD unit unlike the TFT screen seen on the 390 Duke. Twin-projector headlights do a good job and the BS6 version now features dual-channel ABS, compared to the BS4 bike’s single-channel system.
KTM RC 200 Competitors
Now nudging the past Rs 2 lakh mark, the RC 200 competes with the likes of the Bajaj Dominar 400 in terms of price, and bikes like the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, Apache RR 310 and Bajaj Pulsar RS200 in terms of specifications and genre.
