India-made KTM RC 125 all set to wow Europe


KTM takes GP fascination to streets via the new RC series sports bikes made in India. RC 125, RC 200 and RC 390 manufactured at Bajaj's Chakan plant in Pune, will soon be launched in India minus RC 125, which is planned only for export to Europe.

Full faired RC lineup from Austrian manufacturer has been spied few times, most recent of which had no camouflage as it was captured in a yard.

After grand success of Duke 200 and 390 naked bikes in India, it is safe to say that fans will embrace the RC models once KTM outlets receive them post launch.

Weighing just 135 kg (dry), KTM RC 125 would pack quite a punch from its 124.7 cc liquid cooled engine producing 15 hp maximum power and 10.8 Nm peak torque, mated to 6 speed claw shift transmission.

Front wheel will be stopped by 300 mm disc brake with four pot brake caliper and rear wheel gets 230 mm disc rotor with one pot brake caliper hanging above. ABS will come as standard feature, with option to disengage.

Prices of KTM RC range of bikes are still kept in the dark.
