KTM RC 125 ABS launched at Rs 1.47 lakh [Jun 20, 2019]
The 2019 KTM RC 125 ABS was launched in India at an introductory price of Rs 1,47,213 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
KTM says the new RC 125 is inspired by KTM's MotoGP motorcycle RC16, boasting of premium parts like KTM's steel trellis frame and USD (upside down) forks by WP. The RC 125 shares its engine with the Duke 125 which is powered by a 124cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder DOHC engine that makes 14 bhp and 12 Nm and is paired with a six-speed transmission.
KTM RC 125 will come with twin projector headlamps with DRL (daytime running light) and ABS by Bosch as standard, speaking of which braking will be dealt with by a 300mm disc brake up front and a 240mm disc at the rear.
Styling on the new RC 125 ABS is similar to its elder siblings on sale in India - the RC 200 and RC 390 - but gets some distinguishing graphics. It will be available in two colour options and a fully-digital instrument cluster.
At this price point, KTM RC 125 ABS will compete with Yamaha R15 V3 fully-faired motorcycle which is priced at Rs 1.4 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The R15 V3 comes powered by a 155cc single-cylinder engine that makes 19 bhp and 14.7 Nm of torque.
