KTM adds its new version of the RC to the Orange family, the “RC 125”. A few months ago we saw KTM Duke 125. That thing sure did shake us and gave us entry to the existing orange world. It has got fairings now. That is bound to make the motorcycle more exciting.
The new KTM RC 125 has a committed riding position and therefore it is an exciting option compared to its other versions. Although the all-new 124.7 cc engine does not make it boringly slow at all and it promises a top speed of 116 km/hour on the track. It is heavier than the Duke 125 by 12 kg which affects its acceleration. The RC 200 and RC 390 are the best track motorcycles of their respective segments.
The RC 125 is a bit slower but that makes it more manageable that makes it a good bike for your 1st track outing. It has the same suspension and chassis as the bigger RC. The all-digital instrument cluster looks fantastic and works perfectly.
KTM has stressed importance when it comes to safety by adding the Anti Lock Braking System (ABS) feature to this version of the RC. The KTM RC 125 as of now has been revealed in two different color schemes, an Orange-Black combination and Orange-White combination.
