KTM Duke 390 in-line for India
NEW DELHI: Motorcycling industry in India received a revolutionary design by KTM for the common man looking for an entry level performer. Although, KTM stepped into the market via Bajaj outlets but it has struck the buyers well and has created its own liking.

Bajaj tried to establish it’s Pulsar 200NS on the very platform provided by KTM but were left somewhat in between, KTM then entered and showed India how its done. Everyone might not have went experimenting with looks of the Duke 200 but those who did, are happy with the way this bike performed.

Now, the company will supposedly be launching its next set of wheels after baby Duke has given the taste of KTM. There is strong buzz that KTM Duke 390 might soon hit the Indian shores and give local citizens, a more vivid reason to go for the brand. The 390 badge will be in-line of the models available, precisely 690, 990 and therefore 390.

The biggest news that hit Indian motorcycling this year was all about the KTM Duke 200 and theBajaj Pulsar 200NS and while this is indeed a step in the right direction for the industry and enthusiasts, it is but the starting point for much more on the pleasure and leisure motorcycling theme which India has been crying out loud for.

Technically, it may get equipped with a single-cylinder liquid-cooled 4-valve engine attached to which will be a advanced fuel injection system. Possibly, it would sport the same lightweight trellis frame, the gorgeously crafted lightweight swing-arm as well as the same suspension components but all beefed up accordingly. Expect a 150kg two wheeled monster that would deliver something close to 45 bhp power that can run all the way upto 200kmph.

One must rest assured that whatever monster that walks out of the Austrian industry, would be fore-runner in the segment. If priced right (may be around Rs 1.8-2 lakh) then the company might become a leader in that “a-little-over-experiment” fragment.
