The engine currently produces 43bhp of power and 37Nm of torque, and comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The Austria based manufacturer also said that it would showcase flagship production models from each platform at the motoring event in Goa. Expect to see KTM's Dakar Rally, Moto3 & MotoGP motorcycles at the brand's stall.
