KTM RC 250 is still a dream for many aspiring riders of Nepal. The motorcycle belongs to the most popular RC SuperSport series of KTM and thus, performance runs heavily in each of its body parts. Powered by the same engine as the 250 Duke, RC can successfully bridge the gap between RC 200 and the RC 390. Here are reasons why KTM should launch the New RC 250 in Nepal.
KTM RC 250 is powered by a 248.8 cc, single cylinder engine producing 30 HP at 9000 rpm and 24 Nm at 7500 rpm. This makes it the most powerful quarter-litre sports bike for Nepal. Honda CBR250R and Yamaha Fazer 25 are both touring focused, making RC 250 the dream option for those who wish for a quarter-litre track racer. KTM RC 250 will also be equipped with 2-channel ABS as standard like the rest of the motorcycles of its class. Suzuki recently also entered the 250cc full-faired segment with the launch of the Gixxer SF 250.
RC 250 was recently updated in both Indonesia and Malaysia. The bike now comes with the same side exhaust and Orange shade as RC 125 for the European market. This combination of White and Orange is still not available on any variant in Nepal. The same shade can help KTM sell more units for RC series.
KTM manufactures RC 125, 200, 250 and 390 in India. The same is true for all four Duke models. The brand is also planning to launch the 125cc RC motorcycle in Nepal in the coming weeks, and after the launch of RC 125, the RC 250 would be most likely the next big thing that could launch in Nepal.
KTM RC 250 comes with features like front USD forks, race spec chassis, side exhaust and same full digital console as RC 390. The track-focused frame on the motorcycle offers a very confident riding position, 10-litre fuel tank and clip-on handlebars for sharp handling. The RC 250 is expected to share almost every part with the RC 200 and will add 2-channel ABS to the package, as the RC 200 comes with single-channel ABS in Nepal.
