According to a report in NDTV, India's Bajaj & Austrian KTM are planning to bring more KTM bikes in India. The duo launched the KTM 390 Duke yesterday and have announced that they've drawn the plans to bring more racing bikes for Indian roads. We just hope the Indian roads get ready for these bikes as soon as possible. Bajaj Probiking Vice President, Mr. Amit Nandi said that Bajaj-KTM will launch 2 new variants of the RC brand 'faired' racing bikes in the coming months; mostly in 2014. These bikes will be sub-500 cc bikes.


The faired racing bikes have their engines covered, as compared to the nude ones. The covers offer better aerodynamics and arguably better control over the bike at higher speeds. The KTM racing bikes are already popular in India. Nandi informed the media that they have already sold about 8000 units in the last financial year and about 25,000 bikes were expected to be shipped to Europe, Latin America and SE Asia. These bikes are manufactured at Pune, the automotive hub of India and are delivered globally.

We like the pace at which KTM is introducing their bikes in Indian markets. We'd love to see a few more bikes from the global superbike giants like Yamaha, BMW, Honda, Ducati and others. Of course the price range won't match!

The KTM owners on CE - would you recommend these bikes?

@Sarathkumar Chandrasekaran • 19 Jul, 2013 I havent yet placed my hands on this monster but its look make it look like a cousin brother of Ducati and price makes it more competing in India as compared with other Top racing bikes.
