Overview

KTM has finally launched the RC 200 and RC 390 in India for INR 1.60 lakhs and INR 2.05 lakhs respectively. Both bikes have been priced very aggressively and they will sell in very good numbers!

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.

Design and Style

KTM RC 200 has brand new stylish and new twin headlights, clips on handlebars and switches, new steel fuel tank, comfortable two-part seat for perfect rider and pillion support with a high seat height of 820mm for a big-bike feeling, advanced design windshield, newly forged and eye-catching aluminum triple clamps, integrated pillion seat with the bodywork lines for extra comfort, compact underbelly three-chamber silencer helps in centralization of mass due to being close to the bike's overall center of gravity, sporty integrated blinkers into fairing-mounted rear view mirrors, a thin tail with a number plate holder and LED tail light and pushed back foot pegs for aggressive riding position.

Instrument Panel

It also has a fully digital instrument cluster with LCD display which includes engaged gear, fuel gauge, service reminder information, an RPM alert for indicating the best moment to shift up the gears. It also comes fitted with a speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, clock and a tachometer.

Engine and Gearbox

KTM RC 200 has a 199.5cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, spark-ignition engine which generates a maximum power of 24.65 BHP with an expected maximum torque of 19.2 NM and is mated with a 6-speed claw-shifted transmission. It has a bore and stroke of 72mm and 49mm respectively, engine lubrication is done by forced oil lubrication with one rotor pump, mechanically operated clutch in oil bath and a contact-less, controlled and fully electronic ignition system with digital ignition timing adjustment.

Brakes and Suspension

KTM RC 200 has 300mm diameter disc brakes with 4-piston radially mounted calipers at front and 230mm diameter disc brakes with single-piston floating calipers at rear. There is also dis-engage able Bosch 9MB two-channel ABS. It has a front and rear suspension travel of 125mm and 150mm respectively along with a suspension system of WP 43mm upside down forks at front and WP mono-shock absorbers at rear.

Tyre Size

The bike features dis-engage able ABS, lightweight and stable 17-inch orange-painted cast light alloy wheels (110mm wide at front and 150mm wide at rear) with tires of tremendous grip and supreme durability.

Ride and Handling

It has a ground clearance of 178.5 mm and a wheelbase of 1340mm. These two makes the KTM RC200 perfect for uneven roads. The well placed handlebar offers a comfortable riding position. It is a great fun to ride this amazing bike.
