The SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers) sales figures for the month of April 2024 are out. So, let’s take a look at how KTM bikes have performed in the market in that time period. Do note that SIAM releases only combined sales figures according to the bikes’ engine capacities instead of figures for the individual bikes.

KTM launched the all-new 250 Duke and the KTM Duke 390 last year with attractive price tags in September 2023. However, the sub-400cc segment witnessed massive action in the recent past, with the advent of extremely affordable, impressively well-made and feature-packed bikes. Between the second half of 2023 and now, we’ve witnessed launches including the Harley-Davidson X440, Triumph Speed 400, Triumph Scrambler 400 X,  and Hero Mavrick 440.

All four of these bikes are priced under Rs 3 lakh with the Mavrick 440’s prices starting from Rs 1.99 lakh! For perspective, the KTM 250 Duke is priced at Rs 2,40,704 while the KTM 390 Duke is priced at Rs 3,12,461 (all ex-showroom). Do note that these prices are not expensive by any means considering the exciting performance they offer. But most buyers in India are generally not hardcore two-wheeler enthusiasts. So, the availability of sub-400cc bikes with 40PS of power that too under the Rs 3 lakh mark is very appealing for them, and this must have cut into the sales performance of KTM bikes in the 250cc and 400cc segments. Also, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z, recently launched at Rs 1,85,000 (ex-showroom Delhi), is likely to further cut into the sales figures of every 400cc bike on sale in the country. That’s because it’s by far the cheapest 40PS bike in India, and ticks all the right boxes as far as an affordable performance bike is concerned, at least on paper.

Not all is lost as the manufacturer recently updated its RC and Adventure lineups with fresh colour schemes and graphics while the KTM 250 Duke and the KTM 200 Duke received new colours as well in April and May 2024. Also, the next-gen KTM 390 Adventure and the KTM RC 390 are expected to be launched by early 2025 and mid-2025 respectively. So, maybe, KTM might see better sales figures in 2025.
