KTM has been waiting for the right moment to get the RC 250 bike out as the pricing gap between both ends keeps on widening and hence we think it is time for KTM India to consider this and bring into the portfolio as it is already being made and sold in countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and other countries. While the rest of the 250cc engine portfolio has been doing good numbers, if not great, this could do clearly more numbers and help in cross-shopping on the KTM showroom floor too. Let’s look into it and see what it can offer.
