The new KTM RC Gen-2 was announced globally in Aug 2021. India is the first market to get the all-new KTM RC 200 & KTM RC 125 launched. Boasting race-inspired lines and two new colorways which clearly define the sporty character of the KTM RC 200 and KTM RC 125 Gen-2, this redesign has been purposely undertaken to optimize the aerodynamic properties due to higher top speeds. This has been achieved thanks to a computational fluid dynamics design process, which has reshaped the RC for both style and real-world function.

The KTM RC Range Gen-2 features an all-new chassis – a steel trellis frame with bolt on subframe, lightweight wheels & brakes. With fully adjustable handlebar risers, the KTM RC Range combines track day ergonomics and everyday usability into a refined racing machine.

With a collection of premium parts in the KTM RC 200 and KTM RC 125 such as a WP APEX big piston fork in the front and a new WP APEX shock absorber in the rear, all-new LCD dash display, all-new LED headlamps in the KTM RC 200, all-new halogen headlamps in the KTM RC 125, new ABS with Supermoto mode makes it class leading against other Supersport machines in India. All-new larger 13.7-liter fuel tank provides best in class fuel capacity meaning you can go further, faster for longer.

KTM RC Range is powered by a state-of-the-art, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 4-stroke engine with twin overhead camshafts, four valves, and electronic fuel injection. The new larger airbox allows the KTM RC Range to breathe easier, providing improved responsiveness and increased torque giving it an impressive off the line launch putting the KTM RC Range well and truly a head of the pack.

The new curved radiator ensures superior cooling for the engine. This improves airflow throughout the engine allowing the KTM RC Range to run cooler, giving it the optimal performance temperature needed to hit the apex, lap after lap, or charge through rush-hour traffic.

As a true sports bike, special care has been taken in improving the overall ergonomics of the KTM RC Range. For example, the knee area is now ergonomically developed to allow for more rider movement, being as narrow as possible with the largest possible contact area.
