KTM 650 Duke Summary

KTM 650 Duke is expected to launch in India in January 2026 in the expected price range of ₹ 6,50,000 to ₹ 7,50,000. Currently available bikes which are similar to 650 Duke are Triumph Trident 660, Triumph Street Triple R & Yamaha MT-03. Another bike similar to 650 Duke is Yamaha MT-07 which is launching in October 2024 in India.

The KTM 650 Duke is an upcoming middle-weight motorcycle that is expected to arrive in India in a couple of years. The 650 Duke will be completely localised and manufactured in India by Bajaj Auto, while KTM will handle the technology transfer.

According to KTM CEO Stefan Pierer, the KTM 650 Duke will be derived from the 790cc parallel twin. The top honcho also confirmed that the 790 engine platform will be scaled down to offer a displacement in the range of 650-690cc. This strategy will allow KTM-Bajaj to launch the motorcycle at an aggressive price point, while also offering advanced technology in this segment.

The KTM 650 Duke is currently in the development phase, and Bajaj Auto is working on setting up its supply chain base for the 650-690cc platform and achieving a certain level of cost efficiency before the motorcycle goes under production at the Chakan plant. The new engine platform will also derive RC 650 and 650 Adventure derivatives for KTM in India.

As we mentioned earlier, the KTM 650 Duke will use a 650-690cc parallel twin motor. Although the power figures are unknown at present, we expect the liquid-cooled motor to churn out some respectable figures of close to 80bhp and 70Nm. The engine will be linked to a six-speed gearbox.

Stefan Pierer revealed that the first motorcycle on this platform will be introduced in India within the next two years. However, we expect it to be showcased towards the end of 2025, possibly at the EICMA 2025, while the market launch is expected in early 2026. When launched, the KTM 650 Duke will rival the likes of the Triumph Trident 660, Kawasaki Z650, and the Honda CB650R.

Besides manufacturing and launching it in India, KTM also plans to export the India-made 650 Duke to various markets like Indonesia, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
