KTM's upcoming limited-spec sportsbike will be based on its Moto2 chassis that was previously available only until the end of 2019, before the company decided to end the production of the Moto2 class racer. The motorcycle featured a Triumph-sourced 765 cc triple engine as Triumph is the sole engine supplier of the Moto2 class.

If the motorcycle is announced, it could very well use an all-new engine from KTM. It could feature the company's rumoured 490 cc engine that's said to debut in the KTM Duke and KTM Adventure by end-2021. But this is mere speculation as the bike may also feature a mid-displacement 890 cc engine. More details on the new sportsbike will be revealed on July 20, 2021.

It may not be launched in the Indian market anytime soon.
