Modification experts, Autologue Design, from Pune have offered a new kit on the KTM RC 200 and KTM RC 390 which will transform it into a more appealing KTM RC8. The kit is known as the KTM RCX and not only makes the bike smarter in appeal but also ensures that it is higher on performance – all at INR 50,000 over its sticker price.
The bolt on kit on the KTM RC 200 and RC 390 comes in inspired from the KTM RC8. It is seen with Red Bull livery a host of new features all of which only add around 3 kgs to its overall weight. The kit includes a headlamp section inspired by the RC 690 concept model while projector lamps are also RC inspired though sporting a new vertical design.
KTM RCX kit also presents seating in a two seat configuration. It includes a BMC air filter and Race Dynamics ECU which overall enhances performance of the bike making it more race oriented. Autologue Design has worked on these updates for over a year.
