KTM India has always been known for it competitive pricing. Bajaj has always ensured that all the price benefits are passed on to the customer. Until December 31 last year we had a rebate on the excise as the government wanted to push sales in the automotive segment as it had a seen a slump in the third quarter. Now the excise rate has been moved back to 12% from 8%. The first manufacturer to announce the change in price due to this hike is KTM. Depending on the model there is a price increase from as low as 6 to 8 thousand rupees on the various KTM models. We are pretty sure that one by one all manufacturers will be passing on the hike to their customers. The overall price hike means KTM will still maintain its edge. The Duke 200 is now priced at Rs. 1,37,977/- a hike of 7190 rupees. The Duke 390 moves up to Rs. 1,89,942/- with a hike of 8937 rupees. The more recently launched RC twins are not spared either. The RC390 now moves up to Rs. 2,12,861/- a hike of 8000 rupees and the RC200 moves to Rs. 1,66,249/- with a hike of 6000 rupees. Please note that all the prices mentioned are ex-showroom Delhi.
