KTM is preparing to launch the new RC125, RC200 and RC390 at the upcoming International Motorcycle Exhibition (EICMA) in Milan, Italy, reports Visor Down.
Since the RC motorcycles are a fully-faired variants of the popular Duke 125, Duke 200 and Duke 390, they’ll come with the same engine, body frame, swing arm, forks and brakes. Differences between the two models lie in the fuel tank and bodyworks, obviously. The RC series motorcycles will also be fitted with clip-on handlebars, as opposed to the Duke’s single handlebar.
It is said that the RC125 will be making 15 hp while the RC200 will get 25 hp. The range-topper RC390 will be getting around 43 hp from its 373 cc lump. Although they are fully-faired, the RC series is reported to weigh close to the naked Duke models – 127 kg for the RC125, 129.5 kg for the RC200 and 139 kg for the RC390.
The RC series will be built at Bajaj’s plant in India.
