KTM RC125 and RC200 revealed

Two more baby sportsbikes from KTM

LAST week we revealed pictures of the new KTM RC390 and now we’ve got the RC125 and RC200 as well.

Unsurprisingly, the two smaller machines are virtually identical to each other and to the larger model, differing only in terms of colours and engine capacity/power.

We’ve also uncovered the full specifications for the RC125, which once again are very similar to those for the RC390 – just with a 15bhp 124.7cc single instead of a 43bhp 373cc motor. Weight is also down from 147kg (minus fuel) for the 390 to 135kg for the 125. The 200’s specs haven’t been leaked yet, but they’ll be virtually the same as the 125s, just with the Duke 200’s 25bhp motor and a weight of around 137kg.
