KTM RC 200 Review
One of the most-awaited 200cc Sport Bikes in IndiaTuesday, June 17, 2014
KTM Sport motorcycle AG is a world renowned Austrian company that manufactures automobiles. Its headquarters are located in Mattighofen, Austria. Recently, KTM showcased three fabulous Supersport bikes, RC 390, RC 200 and RC 125 at 71st EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy on November 6, 2013. These bikes are based on their naked Duke model counterparts with some slight differences. The frame is visually similar but is slightly changed and is a powder-coated tubular space frame made from steel tubes.
The other features that have seen changes are top speed, an increased steering head angle which leads to shorter trail and wheelbase and increased ground clearance which further leads to even sharper steering, new and aggressive riding position, new rear sub-frame, new headlights and fuel tank and a slightly increased weight. All three bikes will be manufactured at Chakan, near Pune in a plant of Bajaj Auto and will be sold in India and exported to the other markets as well. The KTM RC 200 is a full fared bike which clearly follows KTM's Ready to Race philosophy with outstanding style, top-range performance, efficient mileage and completely value for money stance. KTM RC 200 and RC 390 are expected to be launched in India in a few days.
