As per the recent buzz, the Austrian manufacturer is reportedly working on the most anticipated KTM RC 790 full-faired sportbike. After the recent launch of Duke 790 in the Indian market, one can expect the brand to unveil the RC 790 based on the same engine specifications though getting a more aerodynamic fully-faired motorcycle design.

According to the initial rendering of the motorcycle imagined by SRK Designs some time ago, one can expect the KTM RC 790 to be based on the now-discontinued KTM 1190 RC8 R. In addition to this, the motorcycle will be equipped with a Euro 6 engine.

Coming to the aerodynamic design, the front fairing of the motorcycle has been extended when compared to its present-gen 390cc RC variant while the orange alloy wheel design, as well as the lower fairing, adds to its unique stance that demands attention on the road.

Coming to the rear profile, the motorcycle is expected to feature a sharper tail section that sets it apart from the other motorcycles in the brand’s portfolio. If and when launched in India, the KTM RC 790 will compete in the market with the likes of Honda CBR650R, Ducati 959 Panigale, and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R.

The launch of the KTM RC 790 has been expected ever since the Bajaj officials commented on their plans on extending their portfolio with the addition of four to five new motorcycles in the next 12 months. The upcoming motorcycles might be a mix of new models or some improved upgrades.

The brand has recently launched the KTM Duke 790 in the Indian market at a price tag of INR 8.64 lakh (ex-showroom). The motorcycle is powered by a 799cc, 8-valve, DOHC twin-cylinder engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 105 HP at 9000 rpm and a peak torque of 87 Nm at 8000 rpm. The engine comes paired with a 6-speed transmission. The Duke 790 further competes with the likes of Ducati Monster 821, Kawasaki Z900, Yamaha MT-09, Triumph Street Triple S, and the Suzuki GSX-S750 in the Indian market.

The India-bound 2020 KTM RC 390 has been spotted testing again ahead of the official unveiling at the EICMA in November 2019. The next-gen model features an all-new front fascia, side fairing and most importantly, the frame under its body. The sportbike now features the same mainframe as the KTM 390 Duke, covered partially under the new fairing and finished in a dark grey shade. The subframe of the 2020 model of the RC 390 seems to be slightly different in comparison to the 390 Duke.

The tyres, suspension, and the exhaust look more or less similar to the current-gen model of the RC 390, further getting all-black alloy wheels. The fuel tank here feels exposed, all due to the removal of a connecting part between the tank and fairing in favour of the straight flowing panels that directly connect with the face. The front end of the 2020 KTM RC 390 features a completely transparent bubble visor, showing the illuminated headlight under the same frame and wider-than-ever presence with extended fins on both sides. The brand is expected to equip the upcoming model with a bigger fuel tank.

As expected, KTM will replace the ageing instrument console of the RC 390 with the modern TFT unit from the 390 Duke. There are thin chances of modification to that console as it is already feature-loaded and comes with smartphone connectivity, automatic brightness adjustment, and it displays a lot of useful information. The current-gen model of the KTM RC 390 is good for 43.5HP of maximum power and 36Nm of peak torque.

The next-gen RC 390 will come equipped with a BS6-compliant engine and the torque figure may get a bump in performance as Duke 390 is good for 37Nm of torque. The current ex-showroom price tag of the KTM RC 390 stands at INR 2.44 lakh, which is lower than Duke 390’s price tag of INR 2.48 lakh. With all the additions and updates, the new model of the RC 390 is expected to get a price tag of around INR 2.60 lakh and the sportbike is expected to launch in India in early 2020.

KTM RC 200 comes with one of the most aerodynamically-effective designs in its segment. RC 200 passed the emission norms without using a big and heavy exhaust, making it the only product in its class to carry an underbelly exhaust. This typical example by Dhana Stickers (DS Design) narrates a totally different story and leaves the stock Black/Orange theme for an even attractive White and Blue shade. Although, Blue has been used only on the alloy wheels and the Orange frame has been painted Black on this KTM RC 200.

White KTM RC 200 with Blue Alloy Wheels

The White wrap on the motorcycle covers its fuel tank, side panels, underbody panel and even right side of the headlight fairing. The two face look has been achieved by keeping the left side Black and getting a dual finish on the visor. The front fender is finished in White for better looks. DS Design has even used a dual shade rear seat cover for added appeal. The motorcycle looks beautiful with Blue RC and Akrapovic decals. The rear suspension remains White and looks best with the body’s shade.

KTM RC 200 White Wrap

KTM RC 200 comes with a 199.5cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine producing 25HP of power and 19.2 Nm of torque.

KTM RC 125 is the next big thing from the Austrian sportbike manufacturer for India. As only KTM RC 250 is pending under the single-cylinder lineup, getting the most affordable fully-faired KTM motorcycle was like a dream come true for most fans in India. The price tag of INR 1.47 lakh will help many realize their riding potential. Here are five quick facts about the new KTM RC 125 sportbike.

5 Quick Facts About KTM RC 125 Sportbike

1) Most Affordable Full-Faired KTM: At present, RC 125 is the most affordable full-faired KTM machine for India at INR 1.47 lakh (ex-showroom). Since the price difference of INR 28,000 between KTM 200 Duke and RC 200 was good enough to bring an upper edge to the naked streetfighter, the presence of an RC machine will help race fans enjoy responsible power delivery under the track-friendly frame.

2) Impressive Specs & Performance: The 125cc, single cylinder engine for India is good for 14.5 HP 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 HP of more power than the average 125cc bike is definitely a positive point. The top speed of KTM RC 125 is around 120 kph.

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 comes without a side exhaust as the KTM 125 Duke is also equipped with an underbelly exhaust system. The combination of these premium components will guarantee class-leading control and quality of riding. The weight factor is also in the RC’s favour here.

4) Design & Style: The impressive Orange and Black combination, aluminium 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. The India-spec RC 125 has a unique sticker pattern for gaining more attention. The sportbike is also available in White plus Black colour combination.

5) Single Channel ABS: The buyers looking for safety will enjoy the grip of wide tires once the powerful brakes are applied. More than that, the front brake with ABS means hard braking is no more a problem in city or highway conditions. The feature is also available on the recently launched KTM 125 Duke and bigger bikes like the KTM RC 200 and 200 Duke while the 250 and 390 series comes equipped with a dual-channel ABS unit as standard.

2019 KTM RC & Duke Sportbikes Price List: KTM India now retails seven motorcycles in the single cylinder segment, starting right from the Duke 125 at INR 1.30 lakh and going all the way up to INR 2.48 lakh for the flagship Duke 390. The lineup is divided into two different segments, based on the ABS used in its braking. The KTM RC125, RC200, Duke 125, and Duke 200 are available with single channel ABS while Duke 390, RC390, and Duke 250 can be had with dual channel ABS as standard.

The brand recently launched the 2019 KTM RC 125 in India for INR 1.47 lakh

The pricing is now a bit complicated as the flagship 390 bikes are seen with a gap of just INR 4000 in them. On the other hand, KTM 125 series has a gap of INR 17,000 while 200 series stays good with INR 28,000 worth price gap. The INR 4000 gap has a reverse effect as in its case, the 390 Duke is more expensive in comparison to the RC variant. The RC 390 is expected to get a major upgrade in November this year, and then the price gap will increase like rest of the Duke and RC models.

On the other hand, the introductory price for KTM RC 125 (INR 1.47 lakh) will definitely go up and try achieving the INR 28,000 gap that has been in the lineup since the last-gen 390 Duke. The RC125 is expected to get INR 5000 as the first price jump, most probably followed by INR 6000-7000 price hike like the Duke 125. The 125cc Duke was launched last year with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.18 lakh, and after getting 2 price hikes, the motorcycle is now available for INR 1.30 lakh. The next launch from KTM would be the RC250 as that will complete their single cylinder lineup for the country.
