We reported in detail of Bajaj-KTM alliance plans to please every Indian bike aficionado by introducing the all new KTM 390 Duke in March this year. Now, it has emerged that some of the Bajaj-KTM dealers have started accepting the ‘unofficial bookings’ of the new bike.
It is being expected that the new bike will come with a price tag of around INR 2.25 lakhs and the new Katoom will open the doors to a new segment in Indian performance bike industry.
We weren’t too surprised when it emerged last month that the 390 Duke will be launched in India in Match this year. KTM India website has been teasing the KTM 390 Duke India Launch since some time now.
The KTM 390 Duke will come kitted with Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) for Indian bike market. The ABS unit on the KTM 390 is manufactured by Bosch and can be switched ON or OFF by the rider.
As is obvious, the KTM 390 Duke will be produced at the Bajaj-KTM manufacturing plant and the attractive price tag mentioned above is courtesy the high amount of localization.
Rush to your nearest Bajaj Probiking dealer to check if the KTM 390 Duke bookings have commenced in your city.
