Soon, its going to be the Austrian vs the Japanese, on battleground India. KTM has already been seen testing the RC200 alongside the highly capable CBR250R on a couple of occasions (CLICK HERE for earlier sighting) and this means just one thing- BAL-KTM is benchmarking the KTM RC200 against the segment leader- the Honda CBR250R. Nothing surprising here considering that unlike the Duke 200, which is a street naked, the RC200 is a faired motorcycle that will have power figures similar to the baby CBR, arguably the most successful fully faired sub-300cc motorcycle in India. While only a good test ride will reveal if the CBR needs to be worrisome about the arrival of the RC200, here’s a quick spec sheet comparison to give you an idea of how the KTM RC200 fairs against the Honda CBR250R.
