Written by Rohit Tonapi

KTM India has revised the pricing for its RC and Adventure range in India. The increase in price is a result of increased commodity prices. The price hike ranges from INR 1,472 to INR 2,096. However, this price hike does not affect the newly launched 2022 RC 390 and 2022 390 Adventure.
