KTM is definitely a big brand with its cult of enthusiasts back in India. With its impressive entry-level bikes, there is no doubt it is a fan-favourite.
KTM has prepared us for four new motorcycles in India. The RC250 has already been manufactured in India but all of it is exported. The bike is speculated to be launched in India as there was a test mule spotted.
It features the same 248.8cc single cylinder that powers the 250 Duke and deliver 30 PS of power and 24 Nm of torque. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and the RC390’s chassis and will go up against the likes of the Honda CBR 250R and the upcoming Suzuki Gixxer 250.
The KTM 790 Duke is set to make jaws drop as it features KTM’s first parallel twin, a 799cc powerplant that belts out 103.5 PS of power with 86 Nm of torque, all mated to a 6-speed transmission. The bike comes with rider aides like stability control, multi-level traction control, cornering ABS, and multiple riding modes including track mode.
