KTM Duke 200

The motorcycle you see above is the popular KTM Duke 200. It is one of four models Ayala Corporation will manufacture in the Philippines beginning next year. Ayala has secured the exclusive distributorship rights to the Austrian motorcycle brand, and part of the deal is the agreement to assemble KTM models in the country and export them to China and other Southeast Asian countries.

According to Ayala Automotive Holdings president and CEO John Philip Orbeta, the manufacturing facility will be located inside Laguna Technopark in Biñan. Orbeta told that they expect to assemble 20,000 units in 2017, with 70% of the volume earmarked for export and 30% for local consumption.

"We will manufacture the Duke 200 and its sports version, the RC 200, as well as the Duke 390 and the RC 390," Orbeta shared.

Needless to say, it is expected that Ayala will be able to price the locally produced KTM motorcycles more competitively, which is good news to fans of the brand in the country.

In addition to these four models, KTM Philippines will bring in completely built-up ones, although the distributor has not released official information in this regard.
