It is not just KTM which has increased the prices of its products in India. Most of the brands are doing the same at this time. For example, in December last year, Hero MotoCorp had announced that it will hike the prices of its motorcycles and scooters from January 2021. The world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters had released a press statement explaining the reason behind the price hike. The company said that there has been a steady rise in commodity costs across the spectrum; including steel, aluminium, plastics, and precious metals.
In other news, the 2021 KTM RC 200 has been spied in its production-ready avatar sitting at an assembly line with no camouflage whatsoever. This could mean that the new 200cc motorcycle could be launched in India soon.
