KTM’s highly anticipated supersport motorcycles the RC 390 and 200 have been launched in India. The RC 390 has been priced at Rs 2.05 Lakh, while the RC200 is priced at Rs 1.60 Lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The RC 390 and RC 200 are built on the existing Duke motorcycles and share their four-stroke, liquid cooled, single-cylinder engines with them. This means the RC 390 develops 43bhp of power and 3.6kgm of torque. The RC 200 also boasts of identical power and torque figures as the 200 Duke, which is 25bhp of power and 2kgm of torque.
However, both these sporty looking motorcycles are heavier than their naked siblings by 8kgs because of the additional weight of the stylish new fairing and lights. Nonetheless, the RC will make for an invigorating sports bike as its revised chassis geometry and a sportier seating position has sharpened its dynamics without compromising on confidence.
So, KTM’s RC motorcycles offer entry level sportbike buyers a focussed set of motorcycles to choose from without breaking the bank.
