In the latest announcement, Hero MotoCorp is likely to increase the prices on all its products. The change will be effective from January 01, 2021.
Well, the reason behind it is an increase in prices in commodities like plastic, steel and aluminium. As these bikes come made with the help of these commodities.
- KTM renews contracts for Pedrosa and Kallio for 2021H
- Oliveria takes the pole at Portimao
- India to soon get Aprilia RS660 and Tuono 660
- Ducati expands its XDiavel family
Lately, there are other manufacturers too who are have increased their product prices, and they are KTM, Bajaj, Suzuki and Yamaha.
KTM too now follow Bajaj’s footsteps by slowly increasing the price on its products.
KTM, as we know, has recently made its Duke series as well as the 390 Adventure dearer.
KTM RC 125 BS6 comes with liquid cool single-cylinder motor which can make 14.5bhp and 12Nm.
The smaller RC gets the aggressive stance and comes like track style with split seats.
The LED DRLs with small circular dual headlights is something to look forward.
In September 2020 when KTM unveiled the new RC 125 the excellent part was the price, and the specs did remain the same.
The RC 125 did retail close to around Rs 1.59 lakh.
Now it becomes more expensive by Rs 1,290, and the price tag it carries now is Rs 161,111 Lakh.
However, the RC 125 is already available across the KTM India dealerships, so you don’t have to wait.
Now after new RC 125 we do now see the new KTM RC 390 BS6 with a new Metallic silver paint scheme.
It does look like KTM is trying to bring new things on the table keeping the DNA intact.
Well, the new shade is Metallic silver; however, KTM doesn’t leave its trademark electric orange colour.
And we could see it on the alloy wheels, on the frame and front section. While the fuel tank gets the grey colour, bottom and fairings are black.
We don’t see any change in specs and style.
While KTM is still working on its next-generation RC lineup and one among them spied among them was KTM RC 200.
The specs don’t change. The 373cc single-cylinder motor comes stacked in trellis which again makes 43.5bhp and 35Nm and it offers much punch.
Mindwell it does have a slipper clutch which is responsible for making your rides smooth and mitigate the outcomes of engine braking when riders decelerate.
Other components are LCD dash, LED taillights and blinkers and same style headlamps as earlier RC 390.
KTM 390 BS6 goes head-on with Yamaha YCF R3, TVS Apache 310 and Ninja 300.
When it arrived, the RC 390 came with a price tag of Rs 2.56 Lakh.
The price now goes high by Rs 3,530, which is close to Rs 259,000 Lakh.
