Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM is performing pretty well in the Indian market together with its associate Bajaj; the project jointly has already sold around 8500 KTM Duke 200, their only motorcycle in the nation that was rolled out during 2012.
As per reports, KTM-Bajaj is all set to introduce their motorcycle Duke 390 by the next few months in the Indian market. Following this launch, the next big introduction, which the bike maker is proposing is a toned-down edition of super motorcycle RC8; it will be a 250 cubic centimeter heart-winner that will be a racing copy of the KTM RC8.
The company is also functioning on the tourer and total edition of Duke 390.
The existing motorcycle might be nicknamed as KTM RC25 that like Duke 125, 200 and 390 will be fabricated at Chakan plant, and will be marketed in market zones crosswise the globe.
In addition, Bajaj is also importing some pieces of the RC8; even though it won’t be due for the sales, they will exhibit the motorcycle at special KTM channels.
The market of 200cc and above motorcycles is increasing in recent times, and the motorcycles in these segments are flourishing. The segment has been reined by the Japanese motorcycle manufacturers with Honda CBR250R and Kawasaki Ninja 250R.
The company is anticipating it to offer a single cylinder 250cc engine that is likely to churn a power yield of about 30bhp and a torc yield of approximately 25 Nm.
If the motorcycle would really present this much efficiency, then it has to be the most influential 250cc bike in the nation.
The motorcycle will be seated between Duke 200 and 390, which entails that the motorcycle will also contain a price label somewhere between these 2 motorcycles; given the information that it will be a completely faired motorcycle, it might price just lower than the Duke 390.
The reports added that the fresh addition could find it rough going in the highly cutthroat 250cc market though, with the Honda CBR250R and Kawasaki Ninja 250R both relishing expanded status with bikers in this zone.
