Sales Report (March 2019)

  • Yamaha MT-15: 5203 units
  • KTM 125 Duke: 3069 Units

The difference in sales number is huge at present while a high number of bookings for the MT-15 could have been one of the reasons for its success in the initial days. The motorcycle is priced at INR 1.36 lakh, offering buyers a lot more power than the KTM rival. However, the strongest point for KTM here is the availability of USD forks and wide tires when compared to the MT-15.

The difference in ex-showroom price between both the bikes is INR 11,000 and thus, this may not be a solid reason for buyers to consider once they have planned to spend around INR 1.50 lakh (on-road) on their new motorcycle. KTM and Yamaha went through cost-cutting for their motorcycles as they introduced single-channel ABS for both the models in India.
