The bike’s trellis frame and suspension are derived from those of the KTM RC 200. Both front and rear suspension are unconventional, with the front forks being inverted and the rear being a monoshock. There is a 300mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc for stopping. The RC 125 has a single-channel ABS system, just like the RC 200 and 125 Duke. The Yamaha R15 V3.0 will be its main competitor.
