The faired baby KTM was spotted testing first in April. It will carry the RC 200 bodywork and features. The underpinnings and 124.7cc liquid cooled single cylinder motor will be shared with the naked 125 Duke. It is expected to carry the same state of tune and deliver 14.5PS and 12Nm. Like all KTMs this one should also get a six-speed gearbox. The KTM 125 Duke gets a trellis frame, upside down forks and monoshock. Braking is via front 300mm disc and a 240mm rear disc brake with single-channel ABS as standard fitment. We expect all this to feature on the faired RC 125 as well.
When launched, the KTM RC 125 will be the most affordable faired KTM and you can buy in India. It will compete against the Yamaha R15 V3.0 ( Rs 1.62 lakh).
