Vehicle Overview
KTM RC 200 is the most affordable track based 200cc motorcycle in India, KTM RC 200 comes with all of the premium equipment like USD forks, projectors headlights, aerodynamic design and all-new Black-White-Orange theme. It lacks ABS while shares the Orange frame with its elder sibling, RC390. KTM RC200 competes against Bajaj Pulsar RS200 and Honda CBR250R in India.Hero HX250R is still one of the most awaited products in India. The quarter liter segment actually lacks competition while Honda CBR250R enjoys an exclusive space for fully faired sport bikes in the country. HX250R will rival the same and seems quite good on paper with its 249cc engine producing 31 BHP and 23 Nm of torque. The weight was quoted to be 139 kg by Hero MotoCorp, providing the HX250R with loads to power on every front. It claims a top speed of 165 kmph while the rivals on the list includes KTM RC200, Benelli TNT 25 and Mahindra Mojo. It may get priced around INR 1.40 lakh.Kawasaki Ninja 250SL is an expected product for the Indian market. It comes with a single cylinder, 249cc engine producing 27.62 BHP and 22.6 Nm of torque. The bike is the biggest single cylinder engine being offered by Kawasaki as they start manufacturing twin cylinder motors from 250cc itself. It could be the first ever product from Kawasaki that is manufactured purely in India. Ninja 250SL would carry a price tag below INR 2 lakh if locally assembled and would rival the Honda CBR250R in terms of performance and body type.
