Reasons why KTM became a popular motorcycle brand in India

KTM is an Austrian motorcycle brand that has been making motorcycles since 1934. The brand has a global reputation for making track-only and track-ready motorcycles. 

KTM entered India back in 2012 with the help of Bajaj. The first bike from the brand was the KTM Duke 200. The primary reason why KTM became a hit brand in India is as follows.

KTM decided to localize its bike line-up for India. This is the reason why, every KTM bike available in India entails appeal factors that gel with Indian buyer preferences. Other reasons that allowed KTM to taste success in no time in India are mentioned below.

  • KTM engines entail rev-happy nature.
  • Every KTM bike available in India comes with single-cylinder, fuel-injected engines. This aspect makes KTM bikes easy to maintain and fuel efficient.
