Vehicle Overview KTM RC 125 is the smallest motorcycle in the RC series, when compared in terms of engine displacement. It uses exactly the same components as the bigger RC390, sharing even the same ABS unit, fuel tank and body panels. The paint scheme is more towards the Orange side while the 125cc engine here produces 15 HP at 9500 rpm and 11.8 Nm at 8000 rpm. This makes it rival the Yamaha R125, Suzuki GSX-R125, Honda CBR125R and Aprilia RS4 125 internationally. KTM RC125 won't launch in India due to feasibility issues.
