Speaking on the occasion Sumeet Narang, President (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto said "KTM has nurtured a base of over 2.5 lac biking enthusiasts in the last 7 years through its Duke and RC range, offering them technology and performance they had never seen before. The 2020 KTM range brings in a lot of excitement with refreshed looks across every model. We have lifted the bar by adding features like a bi-directional Quickshifter in the Duke390 which have been restricted only in the liter class motorcycles till date. The upgrade on KTM 200 Duke is a huge milestone, and we believe it places this key model at an inflection point which will help us not only gain volumes and share but also expand the premium motorcycle segment in the country, giving the aspirants of sports motorcycles a perfect upgrade. The new 2020 range further strengthens our mission to offer the most complete range of performance motorcycles in the premium sport motorcycle segment."
