KTM to cover some more naked models

KTM RC125, RC200 and RC390 motorcycles headed to EICMA

We found the KTM RC390 to be a bonkers-fun bike to ride, and were elated when we received word of the company launching a faired, more track-focused version of the potent streetbike at the 71st International Motorcycle Exhibition in Milan, next month.

More recent news reveals that the Austrians are planning on adding a little more clothing on some of their smaller, yet equally nutty, naked models. The little firecrackers you see in the pictures here are the RC125 and the RC200 which are in essence, faired versions of the frantic-revving 15 and 25bhp, 125 and 200cc Duke counterparts that are on sale in markets across the globe.

There seems a slim chance of the RC125 coming to India, primarily because the naked model isn't sold here. However, we relish the fact that we could very well see the RC200 ready to tear up Indian towns post its launch, alongside the faired 125 and 390cc siblings at the EICMA 2013.
