Ten-day journeys shall be priced at Rs 27,000 and the six to seven-day journeys at Rs 18,000.
KTM Rides are shorter formats of the above category, where owners can sign up for long weekend rides. These would be four-day rides starting from major cities to marquee location in the vicinity. Pricing for these rides is Rs 8,500.
Finally, KTM Track Day will consist of owners able to ride their motorcycles within the controlled confines of the race track. These sessions will be held at either Buddh International Circuit (BIC) or Madras Motor Race Track (MMRT) and will consist of classroom session as well as track time. Pricing here is rs 3,000 for MMRT and Rs 4,500 for BIC.
