Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM has introduced an all-new black colour variant for its Supersport model, the RC 200. The new black colour is an addition to the already available white colour. The KTM RC 200 black colour variant is priced at Rs 1.77 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi).
The new black livery on the KTM RC 200 is similar to the colour scheme offered on the RC 390. But the orange and white details on the RC 200 has been interchanged to distinguish both the models. The tail section of the KTM RC 200 black colour variant gets white graphics.
Apart from the new colour scheme, the KTM RC 200 does not get any mechanical upgrades. The RC 200 draws power from a 199.5cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine churning out 25bhp and 19.2Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The KTM RC 200 is a track-focused motorcycle and gets premium cycle parts. The KTM RC 200 is equipped with an upside down forks at the front and monoshock suspension at the rear. Braking duties are handled by discs at both the ends but the India-spec model misses out on ABS.
The KTM RC 200 is loaded with premium features such as a fully digital instrument cluster, clip-on handlebars and underbelly exhaust. In its 2017 avatar, the RC 200 features wider rear view mirrors and improved cushioning for the rider and the pillion seat. The KTM RC 200 black colour variant can be booked across the KTM dealerships in the country.
Amit Nandi, President (Probiking), Bajaj Auto said, "The KTM RCs are race-bred machines. The RC 200 constitutes a significant part of the KTM portfolio and it is only fair that we broaden the choice for our customers with the addition of a new Black colour option."
