As the curtains fall on 2023, the new year is filled with excitement for KTM and Husqvarna aficionados. The forthcoming bike launches in 2024 promise a fresh wave of innovation, delivering heightened performance and cutting-edge designs. Let's delve into the offerings these two iconic brands have in the pipeline for the biking community:

1. Next-Gen KTM 390 Adventure

  • Expected Launch: End of 2024 (EICMA)
  • The upcoming iteration of the KTM 390 Adventure has recently been captured during testing, showcasing a sleeker design. Noteworthy features include a taller windscreen, sharper fuel tank extensions, and an elevated front fender. Propelled by the same 398.63cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine found in the new 390 Duke, it introduces a revamped chassis. The grand debut is anticipated at EICMA, accompanied by an expected price tag of Rs 3.80 lakh (ex-showroom) upon its launch in India.

2. Husqvarna Svartpilen 401

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2024
  • The Husqvarna Svartpilen 401, spotted testing on Indian roads, hints at a larger and more muscular profile compared to its predecessor. Sharing components with the all-new 390 Duke, such as the offset monoshock and the 398.63cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, this street-naked bike is poised to make a significant impact. The launch is projected for mid-2024, with an estimated price tag of Rs 3.3 lakh, ex-showroom.

3. Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 (2024)

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2024
  • The 2024 rendition of the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250, recently spotted during testing in India, flaunts a distinctive boxier fuel tank design. Featuring rear-set footpegs and raised clip-on handlebars for enhanced ergonomics, this bike seamlessly blends style with comfort. It draws power from the same 249cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine found in the KTM 250 Duke. Anticipated to hit the market by mid-2024, its expected price is around Rs 2.3 lakh (ex-showroom).

Special Mention: Next-Gen KTM RC 390

  • Expected Showcase: End of 2024 (EICMA), Launch likely in mid-2025
  • While unlikely to launch before mid-2025, the next-gen KTM RC 390 has been undergoing testing, sparking enthusiasm among supersport enthusiasts. Boasting a new design with Moto3-inspired fairing, the engine from the new 390 Duke, and various key enhancements, it promises an exhilarating riding experience. The initial glimpse may occur at EICMA towards the end of 2024.
