The wait for the KTM motorcycle models, one of the most awaited motorcycle names in Thailand, was finally over as Kunka Corp. pulled off the sheets from the KTM models amidst flashes of camera men. Most bikes clad in the typical KTM orange, the KTM's proudly showed off there Austrian attitude to the journalists present at the 2nd Bangkok Motorbike Festival.
The KTM's are powered with engines from 654cc, 999cc, and the extremely powerful 1195cc engines. With models like the popular KTM 690 Enduro, KTM 690 SMC supermoto, KTM 990 Supermoto T, KTM 690 Duke, KTM 990 Superduke, KTM 990 Adventure, and the superbike range from the KTM 1190 RC8 to the KTM 1190 RC 8 R Akrapovic special edition.
The distributor have claimed that the KTM owners will have complete service backup from the time of sale and that the spare parts are already available and present at the service location. The KTM motorcycles line-up, a motorcycle name I personally love to ride, are undoubtedly brilliant performers. But all good things come at a cost and the KTM's showed at the motorshow are no exception. With KTM price tags starting at 644,000 Baht for the KTM 690 Enduro, and ending at 1,550,000 Baht for the KTM 1190 RC8 R Akrapovic superbike, the KTM's are undoubtedly expensive. But who cares when you have a motorcycle that rides like a KTM 1190 RC8?
For everybody who wants to enjoy the Austrian experience the KTM's are still on display at CenterWorld Bangkok until tomorrow (31 January) but do not expect Austrian beer, they serve Heineken. For prices you can look at our KTM pricelist.
