KTM 490 models come earlier than planned

Already in December 2019 it was announced that KTM would like to serve the 500cc segment and plans to introduce a 490 series.

A model overview, which comes from an investor presentation, revealed the work on five different models. In an interview, KTM CEO Pierer confirmed that the corona pandemic even accelerated the original schedules. It has been concluded that it is particularly important in markets with A2 licenses that the market for 125cc, 200cc and 390cc motorcycles can continue to develop.

For this reason, the research and development engineers from KTM and Bajaj work closely together to accelerate the joint development of the 500cc motorcycles that is taking place in India. It can be assumed that the first models will be on the market as early as 2022.

The interview also confirmed that the 890 Duke engine is also used in the Husqvarna Norden 901.
