The Indian auto brand is developing the new models with two engine options: a single-cylinder 375cc mill and a 200cc power mill which is currently empowering several other KTM motorbikes. While the 200cc bike will come under KTM moniker, the 375cc adventure tourer will join Bajaj’s Avenger lineup.

The Bajaj-KTM team plans to take on the Royal Enfield Himalayan with the KTM 390Adventure. The target consumer base for this product might be the creamy layer initially. But speculations are rife that it may bring forth a 375cc iteration of the same to take an edge over its close rival. The Bajaj Avenger 400 will be powered by the same 375cc, single-cylinder engine that does duty on the KTM Duke 390. This powertrain churns out a maximum power output of 43bhp at 9,000rpm and a maximum torque of 35Nm at 7,000rpm. Transmission duties will be performed by a 6-speed manual gearbox.

The new Bajaj Avenger 400 will be built on an all-new platform that has been developed by the home-grown bikemaker and its Austrian partner – KTM. The biggest challenge for Royal Enfield, in that respect, is affordability and it is the same point where Bajaj Auto gets benefit of doubt. If this model comes in play, it will not only help in boosting sales on national level but international level trade figures will witness a drastic improvement on same scale.
