According to the motorcycle sales report for March 2020, the Husqvarna 250 has officially surpassed the total sales registered by the KTM Duke 250. The Husqvarna 250 series which includes the Svartpilen 250 and Vitpilen 250 has been able to get an interesting customer response considering their powerful performance and splendid design.
Bajaj Auto is flourishing in the quarter-litre segment with the introduction of Husqvarna 250 series as well as the recently introduced Dominar 250. Since all the three motorcycles under the brand have been launched with a BS6-compliant engine, the brand has also updated the KTM Duke 250 with the same so as to make the quarter-litre segment equally exciting for the customers. Though the overall sales continue to benefit the brand altogether, the launch of new 250cc motorcycles has divided the sales among all of them.
