What is the price of KTM RC 125 in India?
2022-12-29 06:00:19 AM
KTM RC125 has no launch plans for the country as KTM will not be able to price the bike properly due to 95 percent part sharing with the elder cousins from the RC family. The RC200 is priced around INR 1,69,000 whereas it’s INR 2,14,000 for the RC390. The INR 45,000 gap between the both is justified by bigger engine, premium tyres, dual channel ABS and a slipper clutch. On the other hand, by providing no such difference, KTM cannot price the bike with another INR 45,000 drop and even if done, the INR 1,24,000 price tag would not justify the 125 cc character of the bike.

What is the actual price of KTM RC 125 in Kalyan?
2022-12-29 05:59:11 AM
KTM RC125 is currently not available in India and the most possible alternate for the same in the country is RC200. The RC series currently sells RC200 and RC390 in the Indian market. RC125 has more chances of launch then all the other 125cc performance motorcycles like Yamaha R125 and Honda CBR125R. The reason behind the same is that KTM do not offer any 150cc motorcycle, which would alter the pricing affair of the 125cc offering whereas other two have a 150cc cousin at an affordable price. Pricing the RC125 around INR 1,25,000 would make the KTM supersport feel more closer than the current generation RC200 priced at INR 1,69,000. The RC125 comes with a 124.7 cc engine producing 14.8 BHP and 12 NM of torque.
