Range starts from 200 Duke, retailing at INR 1,43,000 whereas ends at INR 2,14,000 for the RC 390. The bikes offer the best in class performance as well as weight figures. They can be bought in limited shades and RC series offers orange rims and frame on both the bikes whereas 200 Duke lacks the orange touch on it under body. You can go for RC 200 as it comes with a price tag of INR 1,69,000.
What is the exact launch date for KTM 125 Duke and RC 125 in India?
2022-12-29 06:02:51 AM
Unfortunately, KTM has no plans to launch the Duke 125 and the RC 125 in India. Possible reasons behind this could be: 1. Not enough customers for either motorcycle because they'll be priced quite high compared to other 125cc motorcycles. Rajiv Bajaj has said "Bring me one customer who'll buy the D125 and I'll launch it in India right away!" 2. Mileage is a big concern for Indian customers. Both the 125 cc bikes by KTM have reported a mileage of just 25-27 KMPL. This is because KTM engines are tuned for performance, and neglect other factors such as fuel efficiency. 3. The 125cc offerings by KTM are available in the European market only because the learner limit is 125cc and/or 15 Hp.
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.
Which one should I buy: KTM RC 125 or Suzuki Gixxer SF Moto GP Edition?
2022-12-29 05:59:49 AM
You can only buy Suzuki Gixxer SF Moto GP edition as KTM RC 125 is not available for sale in India. The Gixxer is a great performer with a 154.9 cc engine producing 14.6 BHP and 14 NM of torque. It comes with an excellent aerodynamic design, returning a mileage of more than 40 kmpl. It comes with a price tag of INR 84,939 for the Moto GP edition.
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.
