Wasn't Bajaj supposed to release the KTM 690 Duke here in India sometime about now? What ever happened to that rumour?

What I had heard was there was some survey done and it was not found suitable for India (high price tag for naked tall weird looking bike) .

It's probably the smart thing to do. Especially with new contenders coming in at the 6 lakh segment, the KTM wouldn't fare very well as it's a little too 'radical' for people to invest their money in. I for one would love one as I see it as immensely practical compared to a Harley or a Hyosung GT650R, but there isn't enough bling to get the general public interested in it.

Rahul Bajaj's interview today on moneycontrol says that there are no plans to launch the Duke in India. It will be for export only.
But the good news is that they may look at brining in the bigger ninja at the end of this fiscal. Here are the specifics.
