KTM RC 200 Launch in India

The most important bit first! The KTM RC 200 launch in India could happen as soon as late next month or in early June. Several KTM RC 200 test mules have already been caught testing our on public roads and while Bajaj-KTM have so far been reluctant to share the KTM RC 200 India launch details, these regular sightings have only consolidated our belief that the launch is nearer than ever!

KTM RC 200 Price in India

While KTM RC 200 price in India will be announced only when the bike is launched in the country, it is very much for sure that the RC 200 would sit above the 200 Duke in KTM India’s product portfolio. This means that the RC 200 could have a price of approx INR 1.6 lakhs, which might be higher than the Duke 200 but would still undercut that of the fast aging Honda CBR 250R. The KTM RC 200 will play the perfect cousin to the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar SS 200, which is nothing but a faired variant of the 200NS, much like how the RC 200 is a faired sister of the 200 Duke.
