250 Duke & 390 Duke BS6 launch planned first along with RC390; Others to follow in the subsequent months…
December will be an important month for KTM as it has planned introductions of many new models in India. It is at the India Bike Week on 6-7 December which appears to be the event where everything will unfold. Though there has been no official confirmation, but it is almost certain that the most awaited 390 Adventure will be unveiled/launched for our Indian market at the IBW.
Apart from that, Autocar reveals that it will also showcase its BS6 motorcycles at the event. The launch will however, be on different timelines. It claims that the 250 Duke and the 390 siblings (390 Duke and RC390) will come first with deliveries expected to commence from 20 December.
It says that deliveries of 125 Duke will commence later, from January next year whereas the 200 Duke will be one among the last to join the bandwagon, sometime in February 2020. Prices are expected to increase by Rs 8,000 to 15,000 depending upon the variant.
At the recently concluded EICMA, KTM did not unveil the new-gen Duke and RC series which means that the BS6 variants may carry the same styling with new colour themes; probably similar to the ones showcased (and also displayed on this page).
A top Bajaj official has already recently revealed that the Husqvarna is also coming in the first week of December which means it will, in all probability, be launched at the India Bike Week as well and its deliveries will commence from January onwards.
So, an action packed December awaits all you KTM fans.
