KTM has released the teaser for an all-new bike and while bike enthusiasts were expecting an update related to the 790 Duke or the 390 Adventure, this teaser gives us a sneak peak into the RC 125.

The KTM RC 125 will be the most powerful 125cc sports bike in the Indian market.

The RC 125 is based on the Duke and will feature mostly same mechanicals as its naked counterpart. The look will be tuned to be more supersport however and from the looks of the teaser, identical to the RC 200 and RC 390.


The RC 125 is expected to be powered by the same 125cc engine as the Duke. This churns out 14.5 PS at 9,250 rpm and 12 Nm of peak torque at 8,000 rpm, but we are also expecting a slight change in tune. Suspension comes via USDs upfront and a monoshock in the back on the Duke and this could be the same on the RC as well along with radially mounted brakes. Single-channel ABS will come standard with rear-wheel lift off protection.

There is no official launch date accounted by KTM yet, but we are expecting it a few weeks from now with deliveries starting soon after. The 125 Duke is priced at Rs 1.3 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), so expect a slight bump up to Rs 1.4 lakh (ex-showroom). Upon launch the RC 125 will go up against primarily the Yamaha R15 V3.
