KTM might not launch the 790 Duke in the Indian market this year due to a delay in the homologation process. The KTM 790 Duke is the Austrian brand's middleweight naked roadster and it was rumoured to be launched in India this year. This development might upset the enthusiasts as they were already hooked on the 790 Duke. Some of the dealerships had also started to accept bookings for the same. The naked roadster is already on sale in the International markets.

The Austrian middle-weight naked roadster will be up against the likes of Triumph Street TripleDucati Monster and the recently launched Suzuki GSX S750. The KTM 790 Duke weighs only 174 kg (dry) and it is one of the lightest bikes in its segment. We expect the 790 Duke to be priced between Rs 7 lakh to Rs 8 lakh.  With the launch being postponed, KTM will now focus on introducing the 390 Duke Adventure and Husqvarna motorcycles in the Indian market.
