India’s second-largest two-wheeler manufacturer Bajaj Auto launched it’s must awaited sports bike with Austrian partner KTM’s in Indian market . I am talking about new KTM Duke 200 which is on sale in an introductory price of Rs 1.18 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It will take on Yamaha R15 and Honda CBR 250R in Indian market.
This is the first bike from their collaboration to be launched in India. Last year, a jointly developed 125-cc version of the Duke was launched in Europe .
KTM Sportsmotorcycle AG Chief Executive Officer Stefan Pierer said: “Next year, we will launch a 350-cc bike and it will be followed by two more bikes in the next three years. So, it will be three bikes in three years.” According toEconomics Times.
