Renowned Austrian bike maker KTM has been displaying its technological advancements and its capabilities to engineer fast bikes every year as a part of the MotoGP circus. The brand has been quite popular in these races that take a bunch of gentlemen, crazy enough to go wheel to wheel, against each other and at very fast speeds. Apart from showcasing their technological prowess, the world of MotoGP also helps these brands boost the sales of their regular bikes, as many of us would love to ride a bike from the same brand we see going at insane speeds on a circuit every weekend. KTM has dished out some more excitement for customers of the RC 200 by offering the 2019 Redbull KTM livery on this 200 cc motorcycle, have a look.

Seen on a YouTube Video uploaded by a channel called Taufik TMCBlog, we see this MotoGP inspired design on the RC200. One can see a Redbull logo, printed boldly on the side, starting from the tank and extending to the fairing. The raging bull is placed above these letters and the KTM logo can be found beneath it. The Motorex branding is placed at the lower end of the fairing, and offers a nice contrasting blue shade, differentiating it from the rest of the livery. Apart from the livery, this particular bike is the same as any other RC 200.

Powering this pocket rocket is a 199.5 cc, single cylinder, fuel injected, liquid cooled engine, which is capable of generating as much as 25 PS at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm of peak torque which kicks in at 8,000 rpm. This engine is married with a six-speed transmission, which sends all the power to the rear wheel. Using a track friendly trellis frame, the bike is suspended by an upside-down telescopic fork in the front and a pre-load adjustable monoshock at the rear. Complementing that decent amount of power is a decent set of brakes, measuring 280 mm in the front and 230 mm at the rear, governed by a single channel ABS module. Competing against the likes of the Bajaj RS200 and the CBR250R in the Indian market, the RC 200 currently retails for INR 1.90 Lakh, ex-showroom.
