With a collection of essential premium parts, such as WP APEX suspension, lightweight wheels and ABS, the KTM RC 200 provides outstanding value with unmatched, class-leading performance.TEST RIDE BOOK NOW
A new, ultra-lightweight framework saves 1.5 kg over the previous generation, making use of a trellis frame and bolt-on subframe, which also gives the 2022 KTM RC 200 improved high-speed stability and increased rider feel. The result? Faster lap times.
The 2022 KTM RC 200 makes use of a WP APEX big piston fork in the front, and a new WP APEX shock absorber in the rear, complete with revised factory settings for a sportier ride.
Boasting a 43 mm WP APEX big piston, upside down front fork with revised factory settings, the KTM RC 200 not only shares proper sportsbike technology with bigger bikes, it handles like them too. New axle clamps and a hollow axle also save weight.
Bringing the KTM RC 200 to a controlled stop comes courtesy of radially mounted 4-piston-fixed caliper ByBre combined with a 320 mm brake disk upfront, and a one-piston fixed caliper with 230 mm disc brake setup on the rear wheel. Not only do these provide the best possible deceleration, they save 960 grams of weight and can be fully exploited thanks to state-of-the-art ABS technology.
Maximum strength with minimum weight. A new bionic wheel-design with fewer spokes and open hubs, greatly improves handling characteristics, but most importantly, saves almost 1 kg of rotating unsprung mass. This means quicker turn-in on track and improved durability on the street.
Taking its lead from the pinnacle of 2-wheeled racing, the KTM RC 200 echoes the design of the KTM RC16 racer in both styling, ergonomics and two exciting color options.
Completely redesigned, race-inspired bodywork provides class-leading wind protection and a higher top speed thanks to optimized aerodynamics created by using CFD (Computational Flow Dynamics) simulations.
The KTM RC 200 boasts an aerodynamic screen for ultimate wind protection, neatly incorporating into an all-new Halogen headlight with LED Daylight Running Lights (DRL) and integrated indicators for optimal, all-day-round visibility.
A new, larger 13.7 liter fuel tank is inspired by the KTM RC4 race bike, and provides class leading fuel capacity. This, combined with the KTM RC 200's low fuel consumption, means you can go further, faster, for longer.
An all-new two piece front fender keeps the radiator and engine clean, while providing effective cooling to the brakes, and channels air into the radiator.
New foldable mirrors are wider to offer an improved rear view, but are sharper and provide improved aerodynamics. They're also more practical, folding in for a narrower profile when maneuvering through tight spaces or parking.
The 2022 KTM RC 200 features an all-new, re-designed LCD dashboard that gives you all the important information you need, as well as a gear indicator.
The KTM RC 200 can let it all hang out, thanks to SUPERMOTO ABS. This mode allows the rider more freedom when it comes to hard braking, without compromising on safety. This is done by deactivated ABS functionality on the rear wheel which allows the rider to slide the rear into a corner. At the same time, rear wheel lift up detection is also disabled allowing the rear wheel to lift up, but keeping brake pressure on the front until an excessive front wheel slip is detected, at which point ABS will intervene. This also means the rider can apply more brake pressure when cornering or trail braking.
Perfectly complimenting the sharp lines of the KTM RC 200's tail piece is an ultra-bright taillight and LED indicators.
The 2022 KTM RC 200 uses the proven 200 cc liquid-cooled, single- cylinder four-stroke engine to maximum effect. Revised engine mapping, improved torque figures, and smoother, hard-hitting power delivery means this state-of-the-art powerplant churns out unmatched performance.
Thanks to a larger airbox, increased torque, and ultra-slick throttle response, the KTM RC 200 rockets off the line and into pole position.
Four valves, double-overhead cams and, ultra-hard carbon-coated cam levers mean the cylinder head on the KTM RC 200 produces more power but retains its legendary reliability.
Improved airflow throughout the engine allows the KTM RC 200 to run cooler, giving it the optimal performance temperature needed to hit the apex, lap after lap, or charge through rush-hour traffic.
Designed to be usable for both track and street applications, the clip on handlebars are 15 mm higher than previous generations for improved rider comfort and line of sight, but can be lowered by 10 mm for a racier, more track-orientated position.
Rider comfort which doesn't impact on performance, the all-new KTM RC 200 seat features thicker seat foam for improved comfort, whilst a new seat profile improves rider movement and step over. Finished in a premium material for better grip, even in wet weather.
New lightweight footpegs keep you firmly planted in the corners, while offering optimized geometry for sporty riding, while passenger peg splash guards protect your pillion from unwanted dirt and the water splashing against them when in a hurry.
Folding foot levers prevent unwanted breakage in the event of a fall, but also ensure the bike stays on-line and undisturbed should you scrape the pegs at big lean angles.
A thicker, more comfortable pillion seat ensures your passenger enjoys the ride as much as you do, while a new seat cover with wet- weather resistant material means seat grip is maintained at all times - even in the rain. New, ergonomic aluminum grab handles complete the package.
The KTM RC 200 boasts a rider-centric layout, designed to give riders maximum contact with the bike, without restricting their movement. The knee area is ergonomically developed to be as narrow as possible with the largest possible contact area for optimum control when on the edge.
