The KTM RC 125 is undoubtedly one of the best motorcycles made in India. As a result, the design must also be outstanding. To begin with, the RC 125 is your 125 Duke’s fully-faired counterpart.
After all, it draws design cues from the manufacturer of Moto GP racing machines. The new bike’s mechanicals and bicycle components are identical to those on its naked brother.
Returning to the stylish MotoGP-inspired design, the twin projector headlamps up front are a nice touch. On the chin and attached to the windscreen are the LED DRLs in the shape of a boomerang.
Its sculpted fuel tank features RC 125 badging on one side, and the instrumentation is shared with the other brother.
Thanks to optimised aerodynamics developed using CFD models, completely reworked, race-inspired bodywork offers long-lasting wind protection and a greater top speed.
The bike itself weighs about 135 kg. Its width is around 688 mm, and its length is roughly 1978 mm. The height is approximately 834 mm overall. The wheelbase is about 1340 mm long, and the ground clearance is about 178 mm. About 820 mm is the height of the seat.
