Bajaj Auto switches back to Metzeler tyres for KTM 390 Duke, RC390 and 390 ADV

  • Bajaj has previously switched to MRF-sourced tyres on the KTM 390 series due to government restrictions.

  • Bajaj Auto hasn't announced any price correction even after the recent change of the tyres brand.

Bajaj Auto has reintroduced the Metzeler-sourced tyres for its premium KTM 390 range in India. The brand has previously switched to MRF-sourced tyres on the KTM 390 series due to government restrictions but has now opted back for the Metzeler branded rubbers. Needless to say, Metzeler branded rubbers are better for KTM to match the 390's overall performance.
