KTM RC 125 can be the next big thing from the sportbike manufacturer for India. As only KTM RC 250 and RC 125 are pending under the single-cylinder lineup, getting the most affordable fully-faired KTM motorcycle is not an impossible dream anymore. Here are five reasons why KTM should launch the RC 125 in India.
5 Reasons Why KTM Should Launch the RC 125 in India
1) Most Affordable Full-Faired KTM
At present, the KTM RC 200 is the most affordable supersport category machine for India at INR 1.80 lakh. Since the difference of INR 30,000 between KTM 200 Duke and RC 200 was good enough to bring an upper edge to the naked streetfighter, the expected price tag of INR 1.48 lakh for RC125, that too with ABS will attract a lot of buyers.
2) Impressive Specs & Performance
The 125cc, single cylinder engine for India is good for 14.5 PS at 9250 rpm and 12 Nm at 8000 rpm. The engine is good for city use and more than that, could help fans who are going through the learning stage get a safer riding environment. The 3.5 PS of more power than average 125cc bike will definitely be a positive point. The top speed of KTM RC 125 is around 120 kmph.
3) Premium Components
KTM RC 125 is available with USD front forks, all-digital console, projector headlights and finest available side fairing. However, the Indian version will not be seen with a side exhaust as KTM 125 Duke also came without one. The combination of these premium components will guarantee class-leading control and quality of riding.
4) Design & Style
The impressive Orange and Black combination, aluminum swingarm, mean machine front fascia and other features guarantee that RC 125 is the showstopper of every event. The exhaust sound and impressive seating position further help riders attain confidence while riding through the city roads.
5) Single Channel ABS
The buyers looking for safety will enjoy the grip of those wide tyres once the powerful brakes are applied. More than that, the front brake with ABS will mean hard braking is no more a problem in city or highway conditions. The feature is also available on the recently launched KTM 125 Duke.
