The Pune-based bike maker, Bajaj Auto went into a partnership with KTM a few years back that is garnering profit for both the Indian and Austrian companies. Some time back, KTM bought Husqvarna Motorcycles and decided to manufacture the same under Bajaj’s plant in Chakan. As per earlier reports, these bikes will make it into the production by late 2017 or early 2018 and when launched the bikes will be sold through Bajaj’s pro-biking showrooms which also happen to retail both KTM and Kawasaki motorcycles.
You must already be aware by now that the company will be making two bikes including the 401 Vitpilen or the 401 Svartpilen. To limit the manufacturing costs and price, the bikes are being developed on the KTM 390 Duke platform, sharing the same engine and the frame. These bikes will face a very stiff competition from the Royal Enfield bikes and also the newly launched Bajaj Dominar 400. When launched Husqvarna bikes price in India should start at least from Rs 1.70 lakh. Stay tuned while we bring you more updates on the Husqvarna motorcycles.
