KTM India range of 125, 200, 250, 390 motorcycles have all been doing well in terms of YoY sales both in domestic markets and in terms of exports. However, MoM domestic sales have seen a sharp decline for every model except for the KTM 125 which grew by 91.87 percent.
KTM Domestic Sales Dec 2020
The KTM range saw a 21.71 percent increase in sales to a total of 5,595 units in the past month. This was up from 4,597 units sold in Dec 19. KTM 125, 250 and 390 noted the most growth while sales of KTM 200 also noted a significant increase.
This notable increase could be on account of a year-end boost in demand and buyers eager to take advantage of lower prices as the company had informed of an increase in prices from 1st Jan 2021. KTM has hiked the prices of their motorcycles in India from Rs. 1,497 to Rs 3,934.
