The 2023 KTM RC 125 takes its place on the starting grid, ready for the lights to go out. Boasting an all-new chassis, dramatic MotoGP inspired styling, as well as improved handling and ergonomics, the KTM RC 125 is primed and ready to take the fight to the street or track, making you feel like a true racer.
The KTM RC 125 uses the proven 15 hp, 125 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.
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 KTM RC 125 improved high-speed stability and increased rider feel. The result? Faster lap times.
The KTM RC 125 makes use of a WP APEX open cartridge fork in the front, and a new WP APEX shock absorber in the rear, complete with revised factory settings for a sportier ride.
Thanks to a larger airbox, increased torque, and ultra-slick throttle response, the KTM RC 125 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 125 produces more power but retains its legendary reliability.
Bringing the KTM RC 125 to a controlled stop comes courtesy of radially mounted 4 piston fixed caliper BYBRE combined with a 320 mm brake disk upfront, and a single 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.
Taking its lead from the pinnacle of 2-wheeled racing, the KTM RC 125 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.
An all-new five spoke wheel design features fewer spokes and open hubs, which not only greatly improves handling characteristics, but most importantly, saves a massive 3.4 kg of rotating unsprung mass. This means quicker turn-in on track and improved durability on the street.
An all-new TFT dashboard lets you see all the important information you need at a glance, or allows you to customize what you want to see via intuitive switchgear. The adaptive ambient light sensor also means the display adjusts to changing light conditions automatically, so that you maintain perfect visibility, day or night.
The undeniable face of KTM Supersports, the KTM RC 125 boasts an aerodynamic screen for ultimate wind protection, neatly incorporating into all-new LED headlight with LED Daylight Running Lights (DRL) and integrated indicators for optimal visibility.
