Bajaj and KTM entered in a partnership in 2008 and the first model to be made in India was the KTM 200 Duke in 2012. Over the next decade, India became the global production hub for KTM’s 125-373 cc line-up that have been sold globally as well as in India. It’s noteworthy that KTM took less than half the time to hit the second half-million mark, which shows the brand’s faster adoption not just globally but in India as well.

Speaking on the occasion, Rajiv Bajaj, MD & CEO – Bajaj Auto Limited., said, “Motorcycles are our strength, and the one-millionth KTM milestone is a testimony to that. When we inked our partnership in 2007, it was with the goal of affordable innovation that would reach KTM’s marquee brands to all parts of the globe. 15 years later, we have not only been successful but have also become strategic partners with a restructured ownership. Given our similar cultures, a sustainable and trusted cooperation has been built that will soon extend to electric vehicles and next-gen technologies. One million has been achieved. There are many more to go!"
