KTM has been doing really well in terms of attracting bike enthusiast who would like to rule the streets, and the naked design theme of KTM just adds more adrenaline rush into the rider. The best part of the fun is that it’s quiet affordable, thanks to the Bajaj-KTM partnership.

Although when we talk about KTM, the picture we get is of a naked street bike cutting through traffic or performing stunts, whenever possible. KTM has recently launched the KTM 390 and it is also expected to set new records, especially the price which ex-showroom Delhi is 1.8 lakh. Sure it’s what many riders were waiting ever since the KTM Duke 200 was launched, but there is a huge mass of riders who have a different image of sports bike, they like their bike fully faired and the existing KTM line-up misses such riders and let assume those rider also miss the fun of riding a KTM.

KTM has realized this gap and has recently announced the launch of a 250cc fully faired bike based on the RC8 theme. This bike will be the first fully faired bike with small displacement. Also what really is good news is that we won`t have to wait very long to see the fully faired KTM, as it is expected to launch in the first half of 2014.
