    KTM has launched the all-new KTM RC 125 ABS. The smallest RC has been launched at an introductory price of INR 1.47 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom, Delhi). The bookings for the 125cc supersport have commenced across the 470 exclusive KTM showrooms in the country with deliveries starting end of June.









    Technical specification:



    Press Release:

    The all-new RC 125 gives biking enthusiasts an entry into KTM’s high adrenaline world of supersport motorcycling. Inspired by KTM’s MotoGP machine the RC16, this fully faired bike is adept at conquering the track and street alike. Like every KTM motorcycle, the RC 125 too, is Ready to Race. Boasting of a host of premium components, the RC 125 is a true KTM loaded with the best of motorcycling technology and engineering.

    It comes with KTM’s iconic steel trellis frame, upside-down front suspension by WP and triple clamp handlebar to provide top of the class handling. It sports a fresh new look in 2 exciting colour options that further highlight its supersport origins. Powering the RC 125 is an advanced DOHC engine producing class-leading 14.5 Ps power and 12 Nm torque. Twin Projector headlights with DRL and ABS by BOSCH make the RC 125 a complete package for every budding motorcycling aficionado.

    Speaking on the occasion Sumeet Narang, Vice President (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto Ltd. said “KTM motorcycles are built to a purpose of winning performance and handling and it is no different with the RC 125, which will provide a true KTM experience to the motorcycle enthusiast seeking to enter our Supersport world. It carries Moto GP genes from its sibling, the much-celebrated RC16”

    I think R15 V3 is a better option, unless you are a die hard KTM fan with budget around 1.5L

    Same old design, New paint scheme though. But on-road price of 1.72 lacs . Some kind of a joke. R15 V3 is a better option for sure at just 1.65 lacs. Gets VVA, dual channel ABS, Slipper clutch and a fresh look compared to V2. I am not even comparing the fit & finish and the feel of yamaha with ktm. KTM has given the enthusiasts VFM bikes like the 390 brothers but this is just not it.

    I forgot to mention this bike is heavier than the R15 V3 Did KTM forget to study the market?

    Not exactly the reason being how well the Duke 125 selling and it even have crossed the sales of MT15 last month. No doubt R15 is better option in every possible way but for some people KTM is more appealing.

    Thumbs down Re: KTM RC 125 ABS launched in India at INR 1.47 Lakhs!

    You know, my 2013 Duke 390 (BS3) has given enough niggles and service troubles to me, but I still love it. For just one reason- 44PS, & just 152 kgs weight(often lesser because of half empty fuel tank).
    The riding fun is unbelievable in this segment.

    I admit BS4 has a role in making the bikes heavy, but is there nothing the company can do. It should weigh 130 kgs!

    Why consider a 125cc at all?
    If money is the problem, I understand it. They can have all inclusive chargeable trackdays for owners with company's bikes, or maybe all inclusive tours, like Ducati is doing...


    I do hope they understand that they'll have a slightly tougher time selling the Duke 790 against refined and well-reviewed Japanese machines, if at all they'll launch it.

    Fans don't want a better bike. They just want a KTM

    True that. In fact even ktm 125 is 9-10 kgs heavier than MT15 What do KTM buyers (not the 390 owners/buyers) find appealing? The orange color?

    Too much overpriced! KTM became a hit not only because of the performance, but because of the comparatively low price also at which they could provide it!

    I am pretty sure we will see a price reduction from KTM within a few months!
