KTM has launched two new motorcycles in India, KTM RC 125 and KTM RC 200. Both of them gets updated features and specifications. 

However, there are some critical changes to the engine and the rest of the bike. And for 2022 KTM RC 125, we’re going to take a closer look at those changes.

The KTM RC 125 is one of the most-awaited and speculated motorcycles of the year.  And it echoes the design of RC16.

The heavy update it received and the manufacturer’s video (both on Youtube and social media) about it got us excited.

All in all, the new KTM RC 125 is a blend of old and new from KTM. And if you think a more robust delivery would do it justice. 

Specs

Engine

Know that the Austrian motorcycle has a liquid-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder engine displacing 125 cc that is good for 15hp of power and 12 Nm of torque while being fed through a six-speed transmission.

Electronics

You won’t see the twin projector headlamp on the 2022 KTM FroRC 125. However, it is replaced by a single piece headlight that LED DRLs accompany. The LED blinkers are now integrated with the front fairing.

The RC 125 also does away with the twin-projector headlamp setup for a conventionally lit single-piece headlamp flanked by LED DRLs. The LED turn indicators are fitted on the front fairing too.
