Thoughts On The KTM Two-Wheelers Price Hike In India
KTM hasn't released any official statement regarding the exact reason for the price hike, although we can expect it to be partly due to the new emission norms which came into effect on the 1st of April 2020, while the other reason being to offset the internal costs due to the lockdown itself.
