Added in: KTM

Only last night, we presented before you all the spy images and details of the highly awaited KTM RC 390. You can CLICK HERE for our complete coverage on the KTM RC 390. While we’ve already reported in great detail about the KTM RC 390 in past few days, we’ve now shifted our focus on an equally promising upcoming bike from the KTM stable- the KTM RC 200! (Here’s a sneak peek into the world of KTM RC 200). The KTM RC 200 2014, much like its bigger, 375cc sister, is India bound and in most likelihood, the KTM RC 200 launch in India will take place alongside the KTM RC 390 India launch. As with the bigger bike, while KTM India hasn’t yet revealed many details on KTM RC 200 launch in India, we’ve come across various spy pics to consolidate our belief that the highly promising bike is close to commencing its Indian innings. The KTM RC 200 is essentially a faired variant of the highly successful 200 Duke. The major differences between the 200 Duke and the RC 200 would lie in the ergonomics and the styling. Also, it is being expected that the RC 200 will come with a slightly different suspension set up to aid road handling.
