We already know that KTM India is working on the updated RC range of motorcycles. And, previously we saw a test mule of the next-gen RC 200 doing rounds on the roads. Now the latest spy image of the 2021 KTM RC 200 has leaked online, suggesting the company has started rolling off the motorcycle from the production line at Bajaj‘s plant in Chakan. The next-gen RC 200 is expected to be launched in the Indian market very soon. Based on the newly leaked image, the bike will get a significant overhaul in terms of design and features.
The soon-to-be-launched KTM RC 200 comes fitted with a new headlight cluster that is inspired by KTM’s RC8 superbike. The outgoing model gets twin-beam projector headlamps that have been replaced with a traditional-looking halogen headlamp. On the latest iteration, the company has shifted the mirror-mounted LED turn indicators onto the fairing.
The motorcycle gets bigger, thinner and perforated disc brakes upfront with less committed riding posture compared to the current model. Also, the bike now comes with a new set of graphics and stickers to enhance the overall aesthetics. However, the side panels somewhat look similar to the outgoing version. The front fascia also sees a redesigned windscreen which looks more aerodynamic and expected to provide better wind protection.
