The KTM RC200 showbike featured Red Bull, Motorex and Akrapovic decals, looks striking with the Orange and Black theme of the sportsbike
A KTM RC200 adorning the Red Bull KTM MotoGP 2019 team livery was showcased at the PJR event in Indonesia. The motorcycle that was showcased at the event was spotted wearing the new Red Bull logo and branding alongside the KTM and Motorex decals (finished in Blue and white). The Bull logo, in particular, is prominently visible on the side fairing alongside the front visor as well.
Although the motorcycle showcased at the event was spotted wearing an Akrapovic decal but it still featured the same stock underbelly exhaust system found on stock motorcycle. To be quite honest, the new livery finished in red and yellow matches perfectly with the original orange and black theme of the Austrian bike manufacturer. Unfortunately, like we already mentioned this is only a showbike and KTM has no plans of launching a special edition model sporting the new livery anytime soon.
Besides the addition of the new livery, there is no other visual or mechanical change made to the KTM RC 200 though. The RC 200 showbike uses the same 199.5cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel injection unit.
This unit produces about 25 PS of peak power at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm of peak torque at 8,000 rpm. The motor is paired with a six-speed gearbox. It uses a 280mm front disc brake and a 230mm rear disc brakes to bring it to a halt.
The Indian spec RC200 gets a single channel ABS as standard for the safety of the rider. The motorcycle relies on an upside down suspension setup towards the front and a preload adjustable monoshock setup towards the rear. The RC200 also gets a twin projector headlamp towards the front and a fully digital instrument cluster that provides plenty of information to the rider.
The KTM RC200 is priced at 1,89,990 (ex-showroom). It rivals directly against the likes of the Bajaj RS200, Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 and the newly launched Suzuki Gixxer SF 250.
