"KTM has nurtured a base of over 2.5 lakh biking enthusiasts in the last seven years through its Duke and RC range...

Sale of BS-VI compliant 125 Duke and RC125 will start in end of February while the sale for all other BS-VI models in the KTM family has started, the company said. The KTM 790 Duke will also transition from BS-IV to BS-VI emission norms post April 2020, it added.
