About KTM RC 200 (2016-2021)

The RC 200 is KTM’s entry-level sports bike and a serious one at that. It gets a high-spec kit in the form of a trellis frame, upside down WP forks and WP monoshock, Bybre brake components with radially mounted brake callipers at the front. It is high on features as well and gets twin projector headlamps, LED tail lamps and turn indicators along with a digital instrument console. The motor is a high-strung 199.5cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected single cylinder unit. Power output is 25.83PS and 19.2Nm. It gets a six-speed gearbox but misses out on a slipper clutch. The RC 200’s committed ergonomics make it an excellent track tool but tiring to ride in the city. KTM recently updated the RC 200 with a single-channel ABS unit. The new update also attracts a price hike of Rs 9,000 over the non-ABS variant of the RC 200. Competition for the RC 200 comes from the more affordable and smaller Yamaha R15 V3.0.

KTM RC 200 (2016-2021) Overview

Part of the price revisions for the new financial year, the KTM RC 200 has become slightly more expensive. It now costs Rs 2,06,112 (ex-showroom Delhi), which is Rs 2,016 more. It has received one of the lowest hikes amongst its Austrian siblings as there’s a new bike on the way.

The new 2021 KTM RC 200 is undergoing a major overhaul in terms of design and features. It will get a new face, a bolted-on subframe, and neat little touches that should make it a sharper motorcycle. The production of the bike seems to have commenced at the Chakan plant with the launch likely to take place in the coming few months.

Q. Can we reduce seat height of RC 200 till 790 mm without problems?
  • You can i guess but not too much.because company owns bike for race or for sport so they give accurate height for sitting possition ,but in other sense ....for short height people who cant even reach the ground properly also ,but they are ktm lovers for them company also gives little opportunity.we can reduce little bit.
  • I guess doing basic design modifications on a bike like KTM which is famous for stability on high speeds is not a wise decision. Instead you can opt for high handlebars for ease of reach if you are short heighted.
  • Yes, you can adjust its seat height. Moreover, we would suggest you to get in touch with the authorised service centre as they will be the best people to assist you in this concern.
