Since the Austrian bikemaker entered the Indian market in 2012, it has received acceptance from Indian bikers. One of the main reasons behind its popularity was its collaboration with Bajaj Motors, which is still active. KTM never thought they would reach the position where they are right now. Another reason was that they entered the market at the right time when buyers had the same mainstream bikes with no other exciting options. And that’s when KTM started unveiling their products, which created a great craze among youths and other bike enthusiasts. KTM’s funky looks combined with good engine options made it a dealbreaker. During their products’ introduction, they unveiled three categories: the Duke range, the RC series, and the Adventure range.
They also offered a wide range of engine options to cater to customers from different economic strata.
However, the available KTM bikes in India are as follows:
1) KTM 125 Duke: This is an entry-level offering from KTM India. It has an ex-showroom price of Rs 1.78 lakh as of July 2022. There is only one variant available: the Standard. Along with that, the customer has three colour options: orange, white, and black.

2) KTM 200 Duke: Before the launch of the KTM 125 Duke, the 200cc Duke was the entry-level offering.

With an engine displacement of 199cc, this single-cylinder liquid-cooled unit churns out 24.6bhp and 19.3Nm of torque. It gets a six-speed manual gearbox. Considering its output, it is one of the fastest KTM bikes in India.
