KTM’s big bike offerings mostly in the sports bike and adventure bikes category with an engine power of 390cc and above are expected to increase in the current year. Right from the 490s to the 890s and larger, KTM is also likely to offer Dukes, RCs, and Adventure models for almost all of its engine variants. KTM is also working closely with Bajaj for an electric two-wheeler mobility offering, although that project is likely to materialise after a few years.
