How much difference is the KTM RC200 vs RC250? KTM website actually enables you to compare the specs of the bike you choose. In this case, I have check out the RC200 vs RC250 and added the Duke 250 just to see what else is different.

One of the most important thing that we want to see is how much the power differs and what is the bore x stroke comparison of the RC200 and RC250.

We can see that the KTM RC200 produces 25hp, while the RC250 comes with bigger output as expected at 31hp. That is 6hp increase which can provides better room for acceleration and enjoyment. The RC200 top speed is at 135km/h (as told by my RC200 rider friend), so, we can expect the RC250 to be topped at 150km/h maybe?  Continue reading “2014 KTM RC200 vs 2015 KTM RC250 vs 2015 KTM Duke 250 Specs Comparison”

2015 KTM RC200 and RC390 street legal supersports machine launched in Malaysia by Eurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd – RC200 RM16,888 and RC390 RM27,500 (basic)

RC200-priceEurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd has unveiled its duo of super sport series named RC200 and RC390 here in Shah Alam, Malaysia. The subject of this bike is to make it more track friendly and appeal to younger rider that are starting to learn to ride track bikes. Personally, I like the double headlight cluster that is enclosed in elongated frame that looks very different that what we always see. This might be the iconic look for KTM super sports bike for years to come as what BMW have done with the squinty headlight of the S1000RR.

On the first impression, this bike looks like the one bike from the racer in Moto3 series. The one in Moto3 is 250cc whereby the KTM RC200 are 199.5c and the KTM RC390 is 373.2cc. We can say that the RC series is the mix of the supersports style of the Moto3 racer and the base model from the Duke series. RC200 are able to produce maximum output of 25hp while the RC390 at 44hp.   Continue reading “2015 KTM RC200 and RC390 street legal supersports machine launched in Malaysia by Eurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd – RC200 RM16,888 and RC390 RM27,500 (basic)”
