Quick Facts About 2017 KTM RC Series

KTM has officially listed the 2017 RC series sport bikes on the international official website. The update is strictly limited to introduction of new shades for these 3 models – RC 125, RC 200, and RC 390. As of now, there is no official word regarding the availability of the new shades in India. Selling with the same old theme from quite a long time, the motorcycles now look fully refreshed, specially the flagship RC 390.

The design elements remain the same while excellent sticker themes now makes them truly class apart. KTM recently updated the official website for India, and it is now showing 2017 RC 390 but the website is still showing the old RC 200, which means that KTM might not be bringing the new White RC 200 to India. As per the latest details available, KTM would be launching the 2017 Duke 390 in January and the company might announce the updates regarding all models at the launch event to make the things clear.

# The fairing on 2017 RC 200 remains the same while the RC 390 loses the bottom most fairing, flaunting its engine completely on the 2017 model. This further means lesser weight, compensating the weight of the exhaust. On the other hand, the dark themed RC200 has turned opposite, bringing White to the outer fairing and even the lower fairing is now White. But the official website for India is showing the old model of RC 200, we are not sure whether KTM would be launching the new shade of RC 200 in India or not. It is actually pearl White and not the same White as older RC 390, which was not as bright as this one. pho_bike_90_re

# KTM has even updated the long awaited RC 125 on the official website while its launch cannot be confirmed from any source, and there are very thin chances that RC 125 would be launched in India. Although, it is the one which carries the most effective pure Orange theme on its fuel tank and side fairing.
