KTM RC 200 OVERVIEW

The KTM RC 200 is powered by a 199.5cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 25.4 bhp and a torque of 19.5 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, KTM RC 200 comes up with an anti-locking braking system. This RC 200 bike weighs 160.6 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 9.5 liters.

KTM has updated the fully-faired RC 200 for 2020 giving it an aggressive-looking paint scheme. It comprises black and orange paint along with bold graphics on the fairing. Apart from this, the motorcycle remains the same visually. It gets a dual-LED projector headlamp at the front with LED DRLs that give it a distinctive look. The sleek 9.5-litre fuel tank merges well into the upswept tail section which houses a split-seat setup.

The RC 200’s trellis frame continues to house a 199cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected motor that is now BS6-compliant. However, the power figures remain the same and it continues to churn out 25bhp and 19Nm of torque. It rides on inverted forks upfront and a mono-shock at the rear. Meanwhile, the braking hardware consists of a 300mm disc up front and a 230mm disc at the rear along with dual-channel ABS as standard.

The bike gets an LED tail-lamp and turn indicators, back-lit switchgear, and fully digital instrumentation, though it’s an LCD unit unlike the TFT screen seen on the 390 Duke. Twin-projector headlights do a good job and the BS6 version now features dual-channel ABS, compared to the BS4 bike’s single-channel system.

Not much needs to be said about the design: it’s the same fully-faired look that we’ve grown familiar with over the last 6 years. What’s new on the BS6 version are the graphics schemes and color combinations on offer. The bike features a sculpted appearance with the highlights being the twin projector headlights up front, underbelly exhaust system and a sharp, steeply-rising tail section.
