As per latest reports, KTM has introduced the 350 SX-F dirt motorcycle in the Indian market.
The well known bike maker took the wraps of this motorcycle at its Orange Day in the city of Mumbai. There are no affirmations if the new bike 350 will be rolled out in the domestic market and this introduction could just be branch of a brand establishing practice before the launching of the 390 Duke.
The firm will also take the RC8 super motorcycle to all its KTM franchises, with the intention to exhibit its potentiality to approaching clients.
The reports said that the bike (KTM 350 SX-F) has ruled a lot of races. The Austrian motorcycle maker said that the bike has the performance of a 450cc motorcycle. The bike boasts dynamics of a 250 cubic centimeter machine.
The said bike has been upgraded for the New Year and obtains a refurbished engine, innovative framework and a superior chassis that is fabricated of central tube-shaped casing and chrome molybdenum steel tubes. A ground authorization of 376 millimeter guarantees the toughest of roads can be conquered without much effort whilst the suspension travel is a huge 300 millimeter and 330 millimeter at the front side as well as back respectively.
Catering the new bike is a 349.7 cubic centimeter, spark-ignition system, solo-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine that generates 54 BHP of power and is coupled to a five-speed claw shift gear case.
Fuel injector originates from the RC8R super motorcycle. Like all other KTM motorcycles, the said motorcycle also obtains upside down WP forks at the front and WP monoshock suspension at the back. Since the company has not rolled out the 350 SX-F in the Indian market, the cost is unidentified.
But the said motorcycle gets sold for around £6645 (INR 5.50 lakhs) in the United Kingdom (UK) market. In the domestic (Indian) market, there is small demand for dirt motorcycles and as a result, the introduction of the said bike makes little sense.
The firm could roll out a lower capacity edition of this motorcycle to target the developing dirt motorcycle section that is presently ruled by the Hero Impulse.
