Husqvarna and KTM sales touch a new high in the last quarter; 125 & 200 range is the largest contributor to the share…
Bajaj manufactures and distributes KTM motorcycles in India. KTM also now owns the Swedish brand Husqvarna which recently debuted in India with two motorcycles – Svartpilen and Vitpilen 250s, earlier this year.
In its quarterly report, Bajaj has revealed that it has registered total sales of 20,200 units of KTM and Husqvarna models in Quarter 2 of the 2020-21 financial year. These are the best ever numbers for the brand in the domestic market in one quarter. This is an average of 6733 units a month.
In September 2020 alone, Bajaj sold over 8000 units of the KTMs and Husqvarnas combined, registering significant growth as compared to last September. The newly revamped 200 Duke was the top selling model for the brand in September, followed by the 125 Duke – both doing over 2000 units each.
Surprisingly, the 390s also crossed the 1000 month mark – a growth of almost 200 percent as compared to September 2019. During this year, brand KTM saw the swift switch to Bharat Stage 6 emission norms and very recently KTM also introduced fresher colors for the Dukes and RCs.
This long lineup of motorcycles will be further expanded with the 250 Adventure in the days/weeks to come. The Pulsar lineup of motorcycles also witnessed best ever sales in the last quarter. These are ample signs that the market is looking over the devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
