New Delhi: India’s leading two and three wheeler manufacturer Bajaj Auto, which holds 48 percent stake in KTM is all set to introduce two more racing bikes in India. Bajaj will reportedly roll out the bikes next year under RC brand. It will add to KTM’s flagship offering Duke. 

The yet-to-be launched bikes will, however, feature ‘faired’ look unlike the ‘raw’ looks of Duke 200 and Duke 390. Also, the new bikes will have its engines covered in order to boost up the aerodynamics, which will result in better acceleration and higher speeds.

“We are looking to introduce two variants of the RC brand of faired racing bikes in 2014,” said Amit Nandi, vice-president of Bajaj Probiking while launching the Duke 390 and the bike has been priced at Rs 1.87 lakh rupee. Nandi added that the new bikes will be in the sub-500cc segment.

KTM bikes have been pretty popular ever since it hit the Indian roads. Last year, Bajaj sold 8,000 KTM two-wheelers, which were manufactured in Pune’s Chakan plant.
