Price Hike Alert: KTM Duke & RC Series Price Increased in India

KTM India has introduced a price hike across the entire range of products, with a jump in pricing going up to INR 4257 for the KTM Duke 390 and staying INR 250 for the 125 Duke. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom Mumbai and when compared to Delhi, the numbers are slightly lower due to production hub falling in the nearby area of the state. For Delhi and other states, the transportation charges add up and reveal a bigger figure. The KTM 125 Duke is now priced at INR 1,24,416 and thus, the difference in price is just INR 250 in comparison to the last value. [caption id="attachment_167095" align="aligncenter" width="843"]KTM 390 Duke KTM 390 Duke[/caption] The jump in pricing is effective from the month of April 2019, with most brands still not revealing their new prices that came after the addition of ABS and CBS to the lineup. Even KTM itself made the availability of dual-channel ABS in the 250 Duke and single-channel unit in the RC 200 at a later stage. Both the 390 series sport bikes were already available with a dual-channel unit from the first day of launch in the country. The most expensive motorcycle in the lineup is KTM Duke 390, commanding a new price tag of INR 2,47,819. The jump in price is INR 4257, while the price tag is now almost INR 50,000 higher than the last generation model of Duke 390, which had an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.95 lakh. [caption id="attachment_14391" align="aligncenter" width="876"]KTM RC 200 KTM RC 200[/caption] The other option that feels equally expensive is the RC 390 at INR 2,43,490. The jump in price for this typical model is INR 3256. KTM Duke 250 got an almost equal price jump of INR 3251 and got the new INR 1,96,672 price tag. The almost INR 2 lakh figure feels non-practical in comparison to the INR 1.34 lakh tag associated with the popular Yamaha FZ25. The KTM RC 200 and Duke 200 are now priced at INR 1,89,990 and INR 1,61,421 after getting a price hike of INR 2252 and INR 2253 respectively. KTM is about to launch the 790 Duke in India in the coming weeks.

When it comes to selecting the right bike, it is important to consider your budget, preferred segment, features required, and engine options. The KTM 250 Adventure is powered by a 248.76 cc engine that provides a powerful 30 PS @ 9000 rpm and a torque of 24 Nm @ 7500 rpm. This engine makes the 250 Adventure one of the smoothest KTM single-cylinder engines on sale. The 19-/17-inch wheel setup provides superior confidence when going over rough roads.

On the other hand, the KTM 250 Duke is perfect for those who are looking for something quick and convenient for everyday use. This bike has a much more relaxed motor and comfy suspension compared to other KTMs. It is powered by a 248.8 cc engine that generates a power of 30 PS @ 9000 rpm and a torque of 24 Nm @ 7500 rpm. We highly recommend you to take a test drive before making the final decision.
