Early this year, the company launched the KTM 390 Adventure. Also, the Duke and the RC series received a whole bunch of upgrades along with the BS6 treatment which made them much better than before. Now, KTM has launched some new colours for the KTM RC Series. The new colours have been introduced for the RC 125, RC 200 as well as the RC 390.
