KTM India noted growth in domestic sales in July 2021, while exports dipped both in terms of YoY and MoM basis
Like every other two wheeler maker in the country, KTM India has also reported substantial growth in domestic sales in July 2021. Pent up demand, markets opening up and the urgent need for personal means of travel have all resulted in increased spending on two wheeler purchases. However, rising fuel prices, the looming fear of a 3rd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and severe shortage of semi-conductors could hamper further growth.
