KTM RC 125 price is Rs 1.47 lakh ex-showroom. The bookings are now open, deliveries to start next week
Much to everyone’s surprise, KTM launched the RC 125 in the Indian market. The KTM RC 125 price is Rs 1,47,213 lakh ex-showroom. At this price, the baby RC is Rs 8,000 more expensive than much more powerful R15 V3. Yamaha’s entry-level sports bike carries a price tag of Rs 1.39 lakh ex-showroom. However, the dark knight edition will set you back by 1.41 lakh (still Rs 6,000 cheaper than RC125).
Despite having a small engine, the RC125 is expensive because it has a higher level of components. Showa USD forks with Radially mounted front brake caliper are the most highlighted components. The instrument cluster is same as that of Duke 125, a fully digital screen with a lot of information for the rider. A single channel ABS is also present which promises of better safety while braking.
Powering the new KTM RC125 is a 125cc, liquid-cooled engine. This powerplant pumps out 14.3bhp at 9250rpm and 12Nm torque at 8000rpm. The weight of the bike is slightly higher at 154.2 kg (dry). A 6-speed transmission does the job of power transfer.
KTM RC125 is the cheapest RC in town
