One of KTM's most popular series is "Duke." Out of all the bikes in the Duke series, KTM Duke has been brought to Bangladesh taking the behavior, needs, and passion of Bangladeshi riders into account, through which "The Duke Attitude" will gain steam in the country. Its liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine will ensure good mileage, speed, and quick response. Duke's 14.5 HP powered engine is known as a powerful racing engine. An updated ABS braking system ensures the safety of the biker. Next to the ABS, it has a special "anti-wheel lock" sensor that will prevent you from skidding while stopping in panic braking. The state-of-the-art sensor-rich TFT display compliments the Duke's modern and aggressive design with features like gear indicators, riding duration, trip distance, engine temperature, and vehicle status. Duke's signature LED headlights will ensure clear and continuous light output, and the light's intelligent controlling system provides maximum road visibility to the biker in any situation, which will give you a lot of confidence during a long tour. KTM Duke is available in two variants with attractive color options.

On the other hand, KTM RC embodies their 'Ready To Race' mentality. In Europe, this bike is considered the perfect starting platform for a riding career for the youth. With a top-class ABS braking system, the biker will feel comfortable and confident of accelerating the speed and control situations like panic braking very easily. The 43mm upside-down fork will deliver the best adjustable capacity. KTM RC has S rated tires, which will give maximum grip and confidence even at high speed. Its liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine delivers 14.5 HP of power and 12 NM of torque, which provides the bike with an aggressive racing experience and durability. The RC series also comes with attractive color options.

It is mentionable that KTM has been one of the dominant names in the motorcycle sports industry for many decades. Engineer Johann Hans Trunkenpolz had set up his small venture of selling 'DKW' motorcycles and 'Opel' cars at Mattighofen, Austria. With the R100, R125, and Trophy 125 models, KTM had started to gain the attention of the adrenaline bikers by the early '60s. In the later years, with spinning throttles and raging exhausts, KTM gradually made its way to the top in the off-road motorcycle industry by the '80s. And KTM motorcycles were bagging titles consecutively with an inborn fierceness. The stubborn gene running inside every KTM dirtbike has enabled KTM to hold the record of being dominant in all major forms of off-road motorcycle racing – the Enduro World Championship, Motocross World Championship, US race series, and the Dakar Rally – till the day. Also in recent years their dominance in MotoGP establishes their sucess in almost every major competitive racing platforms.

After establishing their supremacy in different countries of the world, Europe's biggest motorcycle brand has embarked on a journey in Bangladesh to offer the bike enthusiasts the same kind of precision and thrill they are committed to delivering.
