KTM RC125 ABS Launched In India — Introductory Price Of Rs 1.4 Lakh Ex-Showroom

Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM AG launched the RC 125 ABS in India today, at an introductory price of Rs 1.47 lakh ex-showroom (India). The company has started taking bookings for the fully faired, all new RC 125 ABS, and they say deliveries will begin by the end of this month.

KTM realized the need for the RC 125 after the overwhelming response of the Duke 125. The 'Little Duke' outsold all of it's siblings combined. The KTM RC 125 ABS draws inspiration from the company's MotoGP RC16 motorcycle.

Powering the new fully faired motorcycle is a single-cylinder, 4-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled, fuel injected, 124.7cc engine that produces 14.3bhp of power and 12Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed constant mesh manual transmission.

The KTM RC 125 features WP upside-down forks in the front, and a mono-shock at the rear. Braking duties are handled by a 300mm disc in the front that is paired to a radially mounted four-piston caliper, and it features a 230mm disc at the rear. While the motorcycle gets single-channel ABS from the get-go, cornering ABS will be added soon. The motorcycle also features 17-inch alloy wheels.

Thoughts About The KTM RC 125 ABS

KTM is already dominating one part of the sub-200cc segment with the Duke 125. Now that the RC 125 is launched, we expect the company to fully dominate the 125cc segment. The RC is one of the best sport-style models available in the country, and KTM has finally unleashed the fully faired Baby RC. We can't wait to ride this motorcycle. Time to make a call. We wish the company all the best and hope the new 125c does as well as the Little Duke, if not better.
