The new KTM RC200 will hit the showroom floors soon, and the 2022 RC125 is expected to follow in the coming months. The new KTM RC390 is likely to be launched in India early next year.
KTM has upgraded its RC line up overseas and it goes without saying that the Austrian manufacturer will launch the next generation of RC125, RC200 and RC390 in India as well. Out of the three aforementioned motorcycles, it is the 2022 KTM RC200 that will likely make its debut first in the Indian market.
To revisit the 2022 RC200’s features list, the motorcycle gets an all-new LCD instrument cluster, LED tail lamps and turn indicators; however, the headlamp continues with a halogen bulb unit. The ABS has been upgraded as well, and the unit now offers a SuperMoto mode.
The platform that underpins the upcoming 200cc supersport is all new. The motorcycle gets a new split-sub-frame chassis. The new bolt-on sub-frame setup has reduced the overall weight of the chassis by 1.5 kg.
The engine is the same single-cylinder 200cc liquid-cooled motor clubbed to a six-speed gearbox. The power output is marked at 25.4bhp and 19.5Nm, which isn’t substantially more than the predecessor. However, KTM has worked upon the fuel maps, air intake and engine internals that promises reduced power loss.
The suspension units and braking hardware will be all new as well. For more technical details of the motorcycle, click on the link here.
The launch of the 2022 KTM RC200 is expected by the end of this month and the deliveries are likely to commence by the festive season. Expect the price tag close to Rs 2.15 lakh ex(-showroom).
