Sweet Exhaust note and aggressive riding. Well, these are the two things that drive people crazy for KTM. The Austrian bike makers currently have the naked Duke and full-body fairing RC bikes in the lineup. In this case, we choose the RC 200. The KTM RC 200 comes with a 199.5cc liquid cooled engine, mated to a slipper clutch. That’s why the aggressive gear shifting. The bike is priced at Rs 1.72 Lakhs (ex-showroom). Heavy pricing, but this is the most performance-oriented bike in the segment. The biggest disadvantage of KTM bikes is their inability to gel well in the stop and go traffic. Without any further ado, let’s move on towards the price, mileage, top speed, specifications and more details of this sports bike.
KTM RC 200 Price in India
|New KTM RC 200 Ex-Showroom Delhi Price||Rs 1,77,638|
The RC 200 is priced at Rs 1.77 Lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It costs about Rs. 10,000 more than the previous generation. The fresher styling and a longer features list help justify the increase in price.

KTM RC 200 India Design
Like we said, the RC 200 gets cosmetic updates from the previous generation. The bodywork looks a lot fresh and we like the way the design has evolved. The bike gets the two brilliant colour schemes, too. Bits like mirrors, footpegs, indicators are new. So is the exhaust system. It may be noted that while the KTM RC 390 receives a side-mounted exhaust, the RC200 continues with an underbelly unit. We like the way KTM has ensured that the superbike looks very modern whilst retaining its sleek design and sharp looks.

KTM RC 200 India Competition
In the world of superbikes, every bike has its own fan following, who would not think of buying any other bike. Like that, KTM also has its sweet loyalists who make regular customizations and additions of accessories to the bike. In a broader concept, it competes with Pulsar RS 200, Suzuki Gixxer SF, Honda CBR 150R/250R and Yamaha R15. However, none of the sports bikes has the same engine specs. The Pulsar, Gixxer, 150R and R15 are priced way too less. They compete because of the same type of bodywork. It can also compete with a more powerful TVS Apache RR310, which is priced around Rs 30,000 more than the RC 200.
