Bajaj Auto’s executive director has once again confirmed that the Indian factory’s working to produce an electric motorcycle with its Austrian partner KTM – and this time he’s revealed it’ll be a high-end machine.
It’s not exactly a surprise that Bajaj has recently been focusing on electric technology. It’s been well reported that it’s set to launch its own fully-electric machine in the next few months. The big news is that Bajaj Auto’s boss has confirmed that it’s working with KTM to develop high-end electric motorcycles, taking its decade-old partnership away from traditional internal combustion engines.
Bajaj’s executive director Rakesh Sharma said: “At this stage I can say that we are entering two-wheelers. We are not ready to say whether it’s a scooter or a motorcycle but we are open to the full spectrum and we are working very closely with our strategic partner KTM to look at electric solution for high-end motorcycle also.”
