KTM Duke 125 has been received immense response after its debut in the Euporean market recently. The Duke 125 manufactured by Bajaj Auto grabbed the fourth position in sales where in which, 612 units of KTM Duke were sold in the month of May alone.
The bike is being manufactured at Bajaj Auto’s Chakan plant near Pune and then exported to European countries including Germany, United Kingdom, France, Italy and Austria.
Duke 125 is already being manufactured on the Indian soil, yet it won’t launch here. Yes, Duke 125 won’t make its way into the Indian bazaar, however, Duke 200 will. The reason being that a 125cc bike equipped with not-so-common equipments such as upside down forks (USD’s) and many more will not cost less than Rs.1.2 lac, which by Indian standards is pretty high for a 125. In order to justify the bike’s price tag, the bike will be incorporated with a 200cc mill which will put out more power while defending its price tag. Recently, when Bajaj Auto’s Vice-Prez, Ravi Kumar, was expressing his happiness after making a strong debut in European countries, he confirmed the news.
“The next model from the same platform for the Indian market is in an advanced stage of development and will be launched later this year,” Kumar said. The same model is also planned for export to the far east Asian markets, he said to Financial Chronicle.
Bajaj’s recent move of removing Pulsar 220 and Avenger 220 out of probiking’s hooks hints that KTM Duke 200 will make its debut in the near future. The bike is expected to be priced wee less than Honda’s CBR 250R. While CBR 250R and Duke 200 don’t fall under the same category, the launch is surely going to heat up the competition.
