KTM RC200 black colour variant costs the same as white colour version and it does not accompany any mechanical change
KTM India has finally launched a brand new colour for its supersport model, the RC200. The new variant is now available in black paint scheme along with the already existing White colour model. The entry-level premium supersport acts a stepping stone for many enthusiasts who are into track riding and it has racing dynamics with an ample performance to back it up.
The KTM RC 200 derives power from a 199.5 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, DOHC engine which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 25 PS at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm of peak torque delivered at 8,000 rpm. Constructed on a steel trellis frame, the KTM RC200 features aluminum swingarm and sporty bodywork. It comes equipped with Upside Down (USD) front forks, multifunctional digital console, projector headlamps, LED tail lamps and clip-on handlebars.
Sales of the KTM RC200 have commenced across all the 430 KTM dealerships spread in 320 cities. With no change in pricing, the new black colour, as well as the white variant, costs Rs. 1,77,638 (ex-Showroom, New Delhi). Except for the addition of new paint theme dominated by black colour with sharp white and red graphics, the Austrian manufacturer did not introduce any changes.
The KTM RC200 continues to measure a length of 1,978 mm, width of 688 mm and height of 834 mm with 1,340 mm wheelbase. It features a seat height of 820 mm and has 178 mm ground clearance with 137 kg kerb weight. It runs on 17-inch wheels and boasts WP-sourced rear monoshock suspension. The fully-faired supersport motorcycle uses 300 mm front and 230 mm rear disc brakes.
KTM’s next big launch in India will be the 390 Adventure and it will take on the soon-arriving BMW G310GS and the already existing but pricey Kawasaki Versys X-300. In response to the growing trend of premium motorcycles in the domestic market, KTM could lineup the 790 Duke for a launch sometime later next year.
