Expected Price & Launch In India
The expected price of this stylish electric scooter from KTM is around 1.4- 1.5 Lakhs INR (Ex-Showroom). This new scooter will carry a premium price tag as it loaded with very premium hardware components. Pricing this less than this range will force KTM to cut down on some premium equipment.
Regarding the launch of the new KTM scooty, it is still under development phase and KTM and Bajaj are working on it. The first prototype model could be shown at the auto expo in the year 2022. Just after that show, KTM might launch the production-ready variant of its all-new scooter.
The new KTM Scooty might be launched in the international market first to see how it performs. The India market is not yet matured for electric bikes and it doesn’t attract a lot of buyers. The lack of charging stations and the reliability issues with the battery affects the sales of electric vehicles. So, the launch in India might get delayed.
Verdict On The KTM E-Speed
The new product from KTM looks promising and it will attract young buyers as it looks aggressive and very stylish. Anything that has a KTM badge on it means performance with great value for money proposition, lets see if KTM is able to do the same in the EV segment.
This KTM scooty looks great and the claimed power output is also good that means it will not be any other boring electric scooter. Obviously the production-spec variant will have some cut-downs, but its KTM, it will still be the most eye-catchy.
A lot of brands have recently introduced some really good electric scooters, one from Bajaj named chetak has been recently launched in India. So the new KTM E-speed will not be lonely in the Indian market. Also, the government is working to make things better, for companies to developed electric vehicles.
We hope this KTM scooty is priced aggressively like the other KTM machines, so a lot of buyers get to choose a vehicle with Zero emission for a better future for all.
