Bajaj and KTM extend their operations to Indonesia
After the roaring success of their motorcycles in India, KTM, with the help of Bajaj, now plans to expand their market to South East Asia - starting with Indonesia. As part of the arrangement, KTM will be offering their Duke and RC models up to a displacement of 400cc which are manufactured by the Austrian-Indian joint venture. The bikes are to be distributed from KTM showrooms managed by Bajaj.
The Duke is a naked street bike, while the RC is a fully fared sports bike. The 199cc engine produces 26PS, while the 373cc engine makes 44PS, both used in the Duke and RC. KTM already has a presence in Indonesia with an existing importer P.T. Jaya Selaras Sejahtera. Since KTM-Bajaj is taking over the sub-400cc range, the importer will now focus on the model range above 400cc. Some of these include the Super Duke 1290 R, Adventure 1190 R, and the Enduro 690 R.
"The decision to emphasise our sales activities in the South-East Asian distribution network is the logical next step in our long term oriented strategy. It supports our presence in the price sensitive Indonesian market by using synergies from our strong alliance with Bajaj." says Hubert Trunkenpolz, CSO, KTM AG.
