According to sources KTM has launched its smaller super sport offering, the RC 200, in a new black color scheme. The new color is available at the same price of Rs 1.77 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) as the existing white colored model. This means that the RC 390 is now the only bike from KTM that misses out on a second color option in India.
The new black color scheme on the RC 200 is extremely similar to the RC 390’s option. They both have glossy black bodywork, orange wheels and trellis frames, and similarly styled decals. The only noticeable difference is the color inversion of the decals and the inner fairing. While the more expensive RC 390 sports an orange inner fairing, the RC 200's is white. When it comes to the decals, the RC 200 gets the brighter orange treatment in place of the white seen on the RC 390.
The motorcycle is mechanically unchanged. Powering the black RC 200 is a 199.5 cc, single-cylinder, liquid cooled motor which makes 25.8 hp and 19.2 Nm of torque. Handling suspension duties is a 43 mm upside down fork and a preload-adjustable mono shock. In terms of braking, while the bike does get a large 300 mm front disc and a 230 mm rear disc, it still misses out on ABS.
