To clear BS4 stock, KTM is currently offering hefty discounts on 790 Duke. Given the low sales, it is not certain if KTM will upgrade 790 Duke to BS6 standards. Exports of 790 Duke are also disappointing, as not even a single unit was exported.
By the end of this year, KTM has plans to launch other bikes such as KTM 1050 Adventure and 1290 Super Duke R. However, with the unprecedented global crisis emerging in the form of corona virus epidemic, it is possible that KTM may have to postpone the launch of these high-end performance bikes. Till things improve, KTM will most likely continue to focus on its existing bestsellers.
