It’s no surprise that every segment of automobiles is getting affected by hike in excise duties. One by one, each automaker is passing on meticulously calculated increase in ex-showroom prices of their products, in order to balance the burden between self and customers.
KTM has announced that American market will soon (in 2015) get the popular entry level sports bikes Duke 390 and RC 390, recognising growing potential in the segment there.
KTM 390 Duke is a machine for hardcore street biking enthusiasts. It outmatches the competition with its rev thirsty engine, and as we Indians would seek, it comes in attractive price package. As simple as that, Duke 390 conquered the segment. KTM has now identified a fault in chain drive setup and has issued a recall notice.
KTM Duke 200 and 390 have found big time fans in India, and in a move that will bring a smile on the face of this ever growing, KTM India has decided to pass on the entire price benefit of new excise duty to customers.
Duke 390 was launched in India in 2013. While it does make a available a great bike to a larger number of people for a competitive price tag, the dangers of making available a powerful bike to inexperienced riders always looms near. The question being asked is whether or not riders who get on a fast bike have the maturity and restraint to actually ride it.
KTM Duke 390 was launched in June 2013 at an ex-showroom price of Rs 1.80 lakh. Though that was an introductory price, a price hike was always on the anvil. Finally, Bajaj has announced a price hike on their new superbike. Price of Duke 390 is now increased by Rs 6,500, on the ex-showroom price.
