Bike Description for
KTM RC 200 MY19
Visually similar to the lightweight and approved Duke steel trellis frame, the orange painted frame has been modified to better fit the supersport ergonomics and dynamics. The increase of the steering head angle to 66,5 degrees resulted in a shorter trail, shorter wheelbase and increasing ground clearance. All these modifications release the complete racing potential of the RC and guarantee a quick, agile and playful handling.
The light alloy swingarm with directly linked WP shock absorber excels with extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability.
The KTM RC 200 high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension has the same 43 mm outer tube diameter as the RC8 R – in other words: real racing equipment that guarantees the highest levels of stability and precision.
The 100% digital LCD display has everything you could expect from a state-of-the-art KTM motorcycle, including engaged gear, fuel gauge and service reminder information. Just like supersport racing machines an RPM alert indicates when is the best moment for shifting up.
The state-of-the-art, liquid cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke 200ccm engine with twin overhead camshafts, four valves and electronic fuel injection, provides outstanding power and thanks to the balancer shaft, delivers the highest levels of smoothness. The engine is equipped with an electric starter powered by a 12V/8Ah battery and it achieves its peak power of 19 kW (25 hp) with incredibly punchy torque.
The forged aluminum triple clamps are eye-catchers and together with the clip on handlebars guarantee a pure supersport racing feeling.
KTM developed in cooperation with Brembo a powerful and easy to control brake-system which allows the rider to be always in control of the RC. A four piston radially bolted caliper in combination with a single brake disk (300mm diameter) in the front and a single piston floating caliper with a single brake disk (230mm diameter) for the rear wheel guarantee excellent braking response even under extreme conditions.
PILLION RIDE SEAT
In order to make no compromises in terms of supersport look, the KTM engineers integrated the pillion seat into the bodywork lines so that it looks like a real racing bike tail while ensuring excellent comfort for the passenger.
The brand new bodywork, footrests and pedals not just provide an unique supersport look but also help the RC to master extreme cornering with more leaning angle. For MY 2016, all the sticker and graphic design shines new.
The twin headlight opens a new direction for KTM style and perfectly matches with the racing supersport look of RC.
As a special feature, the RC incorporates blinkers into the mirror structure, which not only look sporty but also contribute to the perfect aerodynamics.
Fitting perfectly into the pure racing look the number plate holder rounds KTM’s high performance bike off.
The two-part seat offers first class supersport ergonomics with perfect support for rider and pillion. With a seat height of 820mm, it enables the rider to have a secure stance while also being high enough for sporty use and real big-bike feeling.
The clip on handlebars and switches contribute to a sporty and aggressive riding position combined with advanced control.
A steel fuel tank with 10l capacity (including 1,5l reserve) has been developed for the RC, perfectly matching the supersport style and vehicle design, together with rider ergonomics. Thanks to the economic engine, the RC achieves even in the sportiest manner of riding a considerable range.
The advanced design windshield in combination with the aerodynamic optimized motorcycle front ensures incredible wind protection for rider’s chest and arms.
