With the KTM RC 390 and RC 200 just around the corner we have made a specification comparison to highlight the differences between these faired bikes and their street bike siblings. We’ve also thrown in a Pulsar 200NS for good measure. As you’re probably aware the KTMs are all based on the same mechanicals under the skin. But there are some small details that differentiate the faired bikes from the nakeds. The following table illustrates the important differences between the motorcycles
