In addition to the unveiling of the price tag of BS6 KTM Duke 390, the Austrian brand has also revealed the price of the 2020 KTM Duke 250. Getting a premium of just INR 3000 over its BS4 price tag, the BS6 KTM Duke 250 will now be available in the market at a price tag of INR 2 lakh (ex-showroom).

Coming to the cosmetic changes, the brand has offered the motorcycle with new dual-tone colour schemes namely black/orange and grey/black in addition to new body graphics. The minimal price increase for the BS6-compliant motorcycle can be justified as the motorcycle was already equipped with a fuel-injected engine while the brand has only imparted it with a new catalytic converter to comply with the more strict emission norms that will implement in the country from April 1, 2020.

Apart from these, the 2020 KTM Duke 250 remains similar to its BS4 avatar when it comes to the overall styling as well as other mechanical bits. Powering the motorcycle is a BS6-compliant 248.8cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine though the new power and torque values have not been revealed as of yet.

Since the new engine has been tweaked according to the more strict BS6 emission norms, one can certainly expect the performance figures to be revised by a bit. At present, the BS4 KTM Duke 250 is capable of offering maximum power of 30HP @ 9000 rpm and a peak torque of 24Nm @ 7500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission.

The braking duties on the 2020 KTM Duke 250 are handled by the same disc brakes at either end mated to a dual-channel ABS unit by BOSCH. The updated motorcycle features USD forks at the front while the rear has been equipped with a monoshock unit. Here is the official price list of the 2020 KTM Duke 250.

2020 KTM Duke 250 On-Road Price

  • Ex-Showroom Price: INR 2,00,000
  • RTO: INR 23,040
  • Logistics: INR 1,000
  • Insurance: INR 11,347
  • On-Road Price: INR 2,35,387

The 2020 KTM Duke 390 with a BS6-compliant engine has been recently spotted at a dealership ahead of its official launch. The much-awaited motorcycle will now be available to the customers in multiple colour options as well as with a host of additional features. In addition to this, the on-road price tag of the updated motorcycle has also surfaced online.

Apart from the updated KTM Duke 390 with a BS6 engine, the brand will also be launching the BS6 KTM RC 390 in the coming days. Some reports also suggest that the Austrian brand has imparted all the updated 390cc range of motorcycle with a Quickshifter+ as standard.

For the ones not knowing the functionalities of a quickshifter+, it allows the rider to change the gears seamlessly and without much effort. The Quickshifter+ used on the KTM motorcycles is a bi-directional unit that performs the upshifts as well as downshifts seamlessly. It ultimately increases the safety and the comfort of the rider by eliminating the need to use the clutch.

Apart from this, the updated motorcycle has been been awarded new dual-tone colour schemes in addition to new graphics. Powering the 2020 KTM Duke 390 will be a BS6-compliant 373.2cc liquid-cooled DOHC single-cylinder engine.

Though the power and torque values of the updated motorcycle have not yet been revealed as of yet, one can certainly expect the performance figures to be tweaked a bit with the addition of a BS6-compliant engine.

At present, the BS4-compliant KTM Duke 390 is capable of offering maximum power of 43.5HP and a peak torque of 37Nm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission mated to a slipper clutch. Here is the official price list of the 2020 KTM Duke 390.

2020 KTM Duke 390 On-Road Price

  • Ex-Showroom Price: INR 2,52,535
  • RTO: INR 31,510

After being spotted recently at a dealership, the ex-showroom price tag of the BS6 KTM Duke 250 has surfaced online. According to a report by Autocar India, the updated model of the 250cc Duke will launch with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 2 lakh, getting a price hike of just INR 3000 in comparison to the BS4-compliant model of the motorcycle. The report further suggests that the BS6 KTM Duke 250 will get an on-road price tag of around INR 2.35 lakh (approximate).

The BS6 model got a minimal price hike as the motorcycle was already equipped with a fuel-injected engine and the brand has only made changes to the catalytic converter of the exhaust system to meet the upcoming emission norms that will be implemented in the Indian market on April 1, 2020. As we reported earlier, the BS6 KTM Duke 250 will be available in two updated colours combinations.

As far as the launch and deliveries are concerned, the BS6 model of the KTM Duke 250 will launch in the coming days while the deliveries of the motorcycle are expected to commence from next month.

At present, we don’t have any details regarding the power and torque values of the BS6-compliant model of the Duke 250. For reference, the BS4-compliant model of the streetfighter is good for 30 HP of maximum power at 9000 rpm along with 24 NM of maximum torque at 7500 rpm.

Apart from the addition of the BS6-compliant engine and the new colour options, the 2020 model of the motorcycle remains the same in terms of looks and style. As far the key features are concerned, the 2020 BS6 KTM Duke 250 continues to be equipped with 2-channel ABS, slipper clutch, side-mounted exhaust, upside-down forks and an aluminium swingarm.

The 2020 BS6 KTM Duke 250 has been spotted for the first time while the official launch is expected to happen in the coming days. The updated model of the motorcycle will be available in two colours: Black with Light Grey and Black with Dark Grey/Orange. The Duke 250 moniker gets Silver accent in the former shade while the latter features the Duke 250 with Orange accents.

As of now, we don’t have any details regarding the power and torque values of the BS6-compliant model of the Duke 250. For reference, the BS4-compliant model of the streetfighter is good for 30 HP of maximum power at 9000 rpm along with 24 NM of maximum torque at 7500 rpm. The engine claims the best power-to-weight ratio among other options in the quarter-litre segment.

Apart from the addition of the BS6-compliant engine and the new colour options, the 2020 model of the motorcycle remains the same in terms of looks and style. As far the key features are concerned, the 2020 BS6 KTM Duke 250 continues to be equipped with 2-channel ABS, slipper clutch, side-mounted exhaust, upside-down forks and an aluminium swingarm.

As per one of the recent updates, the customers can avail the BS4 model of the Duke 250 across several KTM dealerships by exchanging their old two-wheeler. The dealership will calculate the estimated value of the old two-wheeler based on its condition, which will be further reduced from the price tag of the Duke 250.

In addition to the old bike exchange offer, the brand is also offering zero down payment options as well as low-interest finance schemes with the purchase of BS4 KTM Duke 250. The BS4 model of the motorcycle is currently available in the market at INR 1.97 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi) while the upcoming BS6 model is expected to get a price hike of around INR 10,000 to INR 12,000.

According to a recent report by Autocar India, Bajaj Auto is all set to launch the BS6 2020 KTM Duke 390 with a quickshifter as standard that will be similar to one offered on the recently launched 390 Adventure. The BS6 model of the Duke 390 is expected to be launched in parallel to the BS6-compliant KTM RC 390.

The reports also suggest that the BS6-compliant KTM Duke 390 will differ from the BS6 model of the RC 390 through more features offered by the brand. One can further expect the motorcycle to get a premium of around INR 10,000 over its BS4-compliant variant with the addition of the quickshifter as well as the BS6 engine. At present, the BS4 KTM Duke 390 is available in the market at a price tag of INR 2.48 lakhs (ex-showroom).

BS6 2020 KTM Duke 390
BS6 2020 KTM Duke 390 to Get Quickshifter as Standard

On the other hand, the brand is very unlikely to offer the BS6 KTM RC 390 with a quickshifter as standard which will ultimately allow KTM to price it lower than its streetfighter sibling.

Since the increase in price tag for the BS6-compliant Duke 390 will make it stand close to the recently launched KTM 390 Adventure that is priced at INR 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the brand will be justifying the high price tag of the adventure motorcycle to the customers by explaining them the adventure-specific features that includes the traction control system and the switchable 2-channel ABS unit.

Powering the BS4 KTM Duke 390 is a 373.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine that is capable of offering maximum power of 43.5 HP @ 9000 rpm and a peak torque of 37 Nm @ 7000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The KTM motorcycles model-wise sales report for Dec 2019 is out and the brand has witnessed an overall decline in the YoY (Year-over-Year) sales by a total of 6% while the monthly sales have also reduced by 27%. The gradual decline in the sales numbers for all the motorcycles from the brand is justified since the customers are awaiting the launch of BS6-compliant variants.

Gathering the maximum sales number is the KTM 200 series which has been able to bag a total of 1,582 units in Dec 2019, witnessing a total increase in the overall YoY sales by 71% when compared to only 925 units sold in Dec 2018.

Recording a total of 1,307 units in Dec 2019, the KTM 125 series which includes the Duke 125 and RC 125 have been able to bag the second spot on the list though the YoY sales have declined by a total of 45% when compared to the 2,414 units registered in Dec 2018. Also, comparing the monthly sales, the brand has been able to witness a monthly decline by a total of 38% when compared to the 2,135 units registered in November 2019.

The recently launched KTM 790 Duke has seen the worst decline in the overall sales as the brand hasn’t been able to sell even a single unit of the motorcycle in Dec 2019. The motorcycle had witnessed a total sales of 5 units in November 2019 and has witnessed a 100% decline in the monthly sales.

Launched at a price tag of INR 8.64 lakh (ex-showroom), the KTM Duke 790 is one of the most feature-rich motorcycles from the brand and as per the latest details available, it is now available with a limited-period discount of INR 1 lakh.

KTM recently also launched the much-awaited 390 Adventure at INR 2.99 lakh while the brand is all set to launch the BS6 variants of the KTM RC and Duke series before the new emission norms are implemented in the country from April 1, 2020.

Your love for art, motorcycles, and Resident Evil series will reach the next level when you will carefully analyze this KTM Duke 200 Zombie Edition in detail. A 100% pure head-turner by birth, this typical Zombie theme-inspired Duke 200 comes with a custom exhaust unit that replaces the underbelly unit.

Every available flat surface on this KTM Duke 200 has a pattern similar to the stains of blood. Warning signs like ‘Zombie Outbreak’, ‘Do Not Eat’, and ‘Zombie Infection’ can be seen all over. More than that, it also seems like this Duke belongs to Umbrella Corporation! Apart from these, one can spot ‘KTM Racing’ stickers on the frame of the motorcycle.

KTM RC 250 is still a dream for many aspiring riders of India. The motorcycle belongs to the most popular RC SuperSport series of KTM and thus, performance runs heavily in each of its body parts. Powered by the same engine as the 250 Duke, RC can successfully bridge the gap between RC 200 and the RC 390. Here are 5 reasons why KTM should launch the New RC 250 in India.

KTM RC250 with under-belly exhaust

5 Reasons Why KTM RC 250 Should be Launched in India

1) Excellence in Performance: KTM RC250 is powered by a 248.8cc, single-cylinder engine producing 30HP @ 9000 rpm and 24Nm @ 7500 rpm. This makes it the most powerful quarter-litre sports bike for India. Honda CBR250R and Yamaha Fazer 25 are both touring focused, making RC250 the dream option for those who wish for a quarter-litre track racer. KTM RC 250 will also be equipped with 2-channel ABS as standard like the rest of the motorcycles of its class. Suzuki recently also entered the 250cc full-faired segment with the launch of the Gixxer SF 250 at INR 1.71 lakh (ex-showroom).

2) Premium Orange Finish: RC 250 was recently updated in both Indonesia and Malaysia. The bike now comes with the same side exhaust and Orange shade as RC 125 for the European market. This combination of White and Orange is still not available on any variant in India. The same shade can help KTM sell more units for RC series.

3) Locally Manufactured: KTM manufactures the RC 125, RC 200, RC 250 and RC 390 in India. The same is true for all four Duke models. The brand recently also launched the 125cc RC motorcycle in India and the RC 250 would be most likely the next big thing that could launch in India.

4) Perfect Expected Price Point: As KTM 200 Duke and 250 Duke have a large number of differences, they still have a price difference of approx INR 35,000. When it comes to RC 200 and the RC 250, the only major difference is a bigger engine. KTM can launch the RC 250 for around INR 2.20 lakh in India. This will even maintain a good difference with the RC 390 due to a large number of additions in the flagship racer.

5) Premium Components: KTM RC 250 is equipped with front USD forks, race-spec chassis, side exhaust and same fully-digital console as RC 390. The track-focused frame on the motorcycle offers a very confident riding position and clip-on handlebars for sharp handling. The RC 250 is expected to share almost every part with the RC 200 and will add 2-channel ABS to the package, as the RC 200 is available with a single-channel ABS unit in India.

KTM RC 250 Key Specs

  • Displacement: 248.8 cc
  • Maximum Power: 30 HP @ 9000 rpm
  • Maximum Torque: 24 NM @ 7500 rpm
  • No. of Cylinders: 1
  • No. of Gears: 6
  • Seat Height: 820 mm
  • Ground Clearance: 178.5 mm
  • Fuel Tank Capacity: 10 litres
  • Top Speed: 165 kmph (Approx.)

KTM 390 Adventure has been officially launched in India with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 2.99 lakh. In comparison, the Duke 390 streetfighter is priced at INR 2.48 lakh (ex-showroom). The pre-bookings for the adventure motorcycle were already open from the past few weeks while the deliveries are expected to commence from the last week of this month or in the first week of February 2020.

Mechanically, the KTM 390 Adventure is powered by the same engine as in the 390 Duke. The 373.2cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine is capable of producing 43.5HP of maximum power and 37Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It was expected that KTM will tune the engine differentially to make the bike more adventure specific but, in comparison to the 390 Duke, the brand has not made any changes to the power and torque output.

The adventure motorcycle is equipped with a 100/90-19 front tyre and a 130/80-17 rear tyre. Talking about the comfort, the seat of the bike looks wide and high whereas the distance between the tyre and rear seat confirms extended suspension travel on the brand’s latest adventure motorcycle. Moreover, the 390 Adventure has got an ample amount of ground clearance, which stands at 200mm. The seat height of the motorcycle is 855mm whereas the fuel tank capacity is 14.5-litres.

Like the 390 Duke, the KTM 390 Adventure is also equipped with an all-digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity. In terms of braking, the motorcycle is equipped with a 320mm front disc brake and a 230mm rear disc brake, which are further mated to a disengageable Bosch 9M+ dual-channel ABS unit. The suspension travel stands at 170mm for the front wheel and 177mm for the rear wheel. The motorcycle is also equipped with switchable Traction Control System (TCS).
