KTM, Husqvarna range to have waiting periods of up to 3 months

The global pandemic has created all forms of chaos and uncertainty. Rising demand, especially for affordable vehicles as an alternative to public transport, is now expected in the short term.

However, there are also going to be massive supply issues due to erratic parts supply and only partial resumption of the manufacturing process.

In such an uncertain climate, it’s no surprise that customers may have to endure waiting periods.

As dealers slowly open across the country, they will all be sitting on some level of existing stock. Once that stock is cleared is when these waiting periods will commence. The duration will differ from model to model, and the smallest of the lot, the Duke and RC 125s, are likely to see the shortest waiting periods of around one month.

Meanwhile, the Duke 250 and all 390 models, including the 390 Duke, RC 390 and the newly launched 390 Adventure are all looking at a 2-month wait. Fresh out of the oven, the new Husqvarnas have not been spared either, and it is told that the cafe-racer style Vitpilen 250 will have a 45-day period.

If you’re interested in the comfort of the scrambler-style Svartpilen 250, you’re in for a long wait of 3 months.
