The round of speculations regarding the much awaited Duke 390 sports bike from KTM has got added within itself a new expectation regarding the launch of the bike in India with a price tag around Rs. 2 Lakh.
Taking our sight on the naked bike fans in India, the KTM Duke 390 may be credited to be the most awaited launch in the two-wheeler market of the country these days. Undoubtedly the Duke 390 may be consider as a pocket rocket, as it has got a massive 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder power unit of 390cc, which is capable of developing a peak power of 44 Bhp. Thus, the craze for the Australian sports machine, which is yet to hit the Indian roads in inevitable.
Bajaj Auto Ltd. has already started its works on the production of the Duke 390 as it is the collaboration partner of KTM in India and thus, we can support our pricing speculation of bike with its localised production. The talks in the automotive industry suggest that it will arrive at the dealerships across the country for sale by next month.
Kawasaki has recently launched the Ninja 300 in India and had expected to affect the response that the Duke 390 is expected to receive following its launch, but, the hefty amount the Kawasaki Ninja 300 asked for, resulted in a gloom in between the bikers. Thus, in such a scenario if the KTM duke arrives with a pricing around Rs. 2 lakh, it is surely going to be a great success.
