There have been many rumours regarding the collaborative product but recent official talk about the bikes is that the price-tag of the motorcycle will be over one lakh INR. The range of street bikes will feature engines of capacity 125cc and more. The launch is somehow definite in the cities of Europe by the end of this year and the welcome season of 2011 will be the time for India to host some launches from the team. Bikes will be sold through Bajaj Autos Pro-Biking showrooms.
It is news that the first launch from Bajaj-KTM will have a price tag of Rs1, 00,000. But not sure whether that bike will have an engine of 125cc or over 200cc. That shall continue remaining mystery for we people. Hope to see much powerful and superior bikes over those which we have we have already available in the market these days.
Another news from the team is that they are going to launch a series of imported bikes from KTM in Indian market in the upcoming years. This will definitely boost competition with Kawasaki which is looking to launch powered bikes in Indian market. The only similarity between Kawasaki and KTM will be the partner Bajaj Autos, India.
Words From Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD, Bajaj Autos
“Whatever product will be out in the market will be at a very significant premium as against brands like the Pulsar. Else, what is the use of bringing such a product?”
I personally wish to see a bike with displacement over 250cc and power more than 20bhp from the Team. And would like to know the expectations from my readers. Please state your views in the comment box below!
