RC125 2020
  • £4,499
  • The RC125 is more than a learner legal bike, sharing everything but the engine with the incredible RC390 to give you the maximum from your licence. The WP suspension provides the rider with excellent feedback from the road and extreme agility. KTM have also kept the weight down on the 125 to make it easier to ride and move the bike when wheeling it on foot, this is helpful for new riders as this helps to build confidence before moving to a larger motorcycle.

    If you're a commuter looking for a quick way to beat the traffic the 125 has excellent fuel economy and will travel 200 miles on a full £12.00 tank of fuel. The other benefit to riding a 125 to work is the abundance of free parking, use of bus lanes and the ability to filter in traffic.
