KTM has certainly hit the expected sales number in the Indian market and its collaboration with Bajaj has been more than just profitable. So much so that it has become the largest motorcycle in Europe. KTM has a wide range of motorcycles which includes the KTM Duke 125, 200 and the 390 which are the entry-level street bikes the RC series takes care of the sports bike segment. There are also plans to launch the Adventure line of dual-purpose bikes based on the small capacity Duke platform. The faired KTM will share the same platform from its naked counterpart.
Although there is a wide range of products to choose from KTM does have a big gap between the 200cc and 390cc engine, which the company plans to fill-in by a new engine, which could be in between 250 to 390cc. As per KTM CEO Stefan Pierer, “with this new option available there is no reason for a buyer to not to buy a KTM”.
KTM has big plans lined up for upcoming years and Bajaj Auto Chakan plant near Pune will be equally contributing along with the brands Mattighofen factory in Austria to meet the production numbers.
With all this development we can expect anywhere between 4 to 6 new motorcycle in the small capacity segment being launched globally and most of them being made by Bajaj Auto.
