The Austrian bike maker KTM has officially teased the entry-level full fairing bike the RC 125 through a dropped teaser. Besides providing the silhouette highlights of the motorcycle, the teaser is not revealing further information of the new RC 125. Other than this, the baby RC is slated to launch by the end of this month and the booking for the same has been commenced at dealerships across India. The dealers are asking for INR 5k as a token amount for the bikes likely to deliver by the first week of July.
Apparently, the India-spec model of the RC 125 will be different from the one available on sale in the global market. It is likely to feature a black and orange colour scheme along with major highlights including an underbelly exhaust, tyre hugger and saree guard. In terms of features, the new KTM RC 125 will share components such as dual projector headlamp with LED daytime running lights, an all-digital instrument cluster, clip-on handlebar, underbelly exhaust from its bigger siblings.
Beneath the fuel tank, the 2019 RC 125 will be loaded with a 124cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine shared from the KTM Duke 125 bike. The motor in question is rated to develop 14.3bhp of power and 12Nm of peak torque from the mated 6-speed gearbox transmission.
The KTM RC 125 will be mounted over the USD fork up front and a 10 step adjustable monoshock at the rear. The braking duties will be handled by the offered set of disc brakes consisting 300mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc in association with a single-channel ABS and rear-lift mitigation (RLM) as standard.

As far as the pricing is concerned, the 2019 KTM RC 125 is expected to carry a price tag of INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom). It would be INR 10,000 costlier above the naked sibling the Duke 125. In the price segment, the RC 125 will go in competition with the likes of the Yamaha R15 V3.0.
