KTM bikes enjoy the pole position in the popularity index for quite some time on the Indian streets. Apart from the visual appeal, the serious power they pack makes them unparalleled to any other bike in the Indian market.
While it has been some time since the Austrian motorcycle manufacturer set its foot in India, they have already entered various segments to suit the needs and the lifestyle of the Indian consumers. Let us look at the different types of KTM bikes available for sale in the country:
Here are the different types of KTM bikes available under the Duke category:
The entry-level Duke motorcycle shares the same DNA as its elder siblings as the chassis and frame are similar to the Duke 200 and Duke 390. It comes packed with a 124.71 cc liquid-cooled engine, which churns 14.5 bhp of max power and 12 Nm torque.
Often referred to as the pocket rocket, it is the country's most powerful 125 cc bike. It is also the most affordable KTM with an ex-showroom price of INR 1,63,669 onwards.
It was the first Duke to come to India, and after its enthralling success, KTM brought in more models. It comes equipped with a 199.5 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine, which generates 25.1 bhp power and 19.5 Nm peak torque. The top-selling KTM is priced at INR 1.84.162 ex-showroom.
Duke 250's attractive colour schemes, more aggressive style and 30 bhp power from the 248.8 cc liquid-cooled engine place it ahead of the Duke 200. It also comes with an anti-hopping or slipper clutch. It is the most powerful 250 cc bike in India and has an ex-showroom price tag of INR 2,24,327.
The Duke 390 is quite popular with sporty riders due to its better power and advanced features. The bike comes packed with a 373 cc liquid-cooled engine and produces a daunting power of 42.3 bhp and 37 Nm max torque.
In addition, the 6-speed gearbox enables riders to achieve higher top speed, and a quick-shifting option is also available. The Duke 390 is priced at INR 2,80,541 ex-showroom.
The final and most ferocious Duke out of them all is the Duke 790, which comes with a 799 cc engine that generates 101.8 bhp raw power, even more than a few four-wheelers in the country. It carries an ex-showroom price tag of INR 8,63,558. You can avail a two wheeler loan to purchase this bike without burdening your pocket.
KTM offers the above bikes in a fully-faired frame variant also. However, if you want to ride a fully faired sports bike with similar specs as the Dukes, you can go with the RCs. While they are identical in power and engine capacity, they are priced slightly more than their respective Duke siblings.
The first variant in the Adventure series is the 390 cc option, powered by a 373 cc engine, which churns 42.3 bhp power. The KTM 390 Adventure features dual-purpose tires, longer and stronger suspensions, and a larger fuel tank. It comes with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 3,21.345.
With such a variable range of motorcycles, KTM comfortably places itself ahead of the competitors in the sports and street segment as its signature orange DNA grows stronger. If you’re facing a financial crunch, applying for a two-wheeler loan is an ideal path to purchase these bikes without spending massive amounts in one go.Apply for Loan Calculate Your EMI
