This large price hike has come because of a steep increase in raw material prices.

KTM and Husqvarna have hiked prices for its motorcycles for the third time this year.

  • 125 Duke and RC125 now cost around Rs 10,000 more

  • The 390 Adventure has witnessed the largest increase at Rs 11,423

  • Prices for the Husqvarnas have crossed the Rs 2 lakh mark

Ex-showroom, Delhi prices for KTM and Husqvarnas have witnessed a significant increase from July 1, 2021. This is the third major price hike this year with the other two occurring on January 1 and April 1, 2021. It is said that prices have been increased due to a steep increase in raw material costs.

The 125 Duke, the most affordable from KTM, now costs Rs 1.7 lakh. For reference, back in January this year, it would set you back by around Rs 20,000 less. Interestingly, that’s nearly as much as a 250cc Suzuki Gixxer. The company’s most expensive offerings - 390 Duke, RC 390 and 390 Adventure have also undergone a price revision. These bikes now cost a hefty Rs 11,000 more than before.

The updated price list also reveals that the Husqvarna twins, which were priced just below Rs 2 lakh have also gone up by around Rs 11,000. 200cc offerings like the 200 Duke and RC200, meanwhile, have gone up by only around Rs 2,000.
