For starters, the updated model has received new adjustable handlebars for a more aggressive riding stance. These handlebars can bow be adjusted as per the rider's preference. The bike also features a newly updated LCD dash instrument cluster as well as a new LED headlight. Over the rear section sits a sharper taillight design and the bike now rolls on lighter, high-strength wheels. The RC200 has also been updated with SUPERMOTO ABS which was previously limited to higher models from KTM.
The company has also increased the overall fuel efficiency from 9.5 liters to 13.7 liters. There is also a larger airbox and an all-new stiffer, lighter split-steel trellis frame. The updated RC200 also received a new curved radiator for a more efficient cooling effect on the engine. Moreover, other major additions include a stiffer hollow front axle, Windscreen with unique laser texture, Integrated front position lamp with front blinkers, and Aluminum cast and split pillion grab.
Needless to say, all these updates come together to make the 2022 RC200 a fairly updated bike.
