  • KTM RC 200

    8.KTM RC 200

    The KTM RC is a better motorcycle as compared to its older models. The paint finish, the quality of plastic panels, and the robustness of nuts-bolts are all good.

Although, the new RC looks more amazing right from the moment you lay eyes on it. The fact that the new RC 200 is easier to live with is verified the moment you get onto its saddle. Although swinging a leg over isn’t effortless, thanks to its tall 824mm seat height. But once you saddle up, it’s surprisingly more comfortable than the previous RC. The handlebar is placed higher so you don’t need to crouch ahead as much as before. KTM has also changed the design and padding of the seat which now feels suitable even for long hours of riding.
