MUMBAI: City-based start-up AlphaVector on Thursday announced partnership with European bicycle maker KTM to launch the latter's premium bicycle range in the country. With this partnership, AlphaVector launches and becomes the exclusive distributor of KTM bicycles in the Indian market, the company said in a statement.

Priced between Rs 30,000-10 lakh, the premium segment will expand AlphaVector's portfolio beyond the recently launched e-bicycle (Meraki) and existing mountain, all-terrain, hybrid, fat-tire bikes in the mass-premium segment, it added.

"Cycling in India has seen a paradigm shift and is evolving at a tremendous pace. The premium segment is witnessing traction with people adopting cycling as a lifestyle especially in the metro cities," said Sachin Chopra, co-founder and CEO of AlphaVector India Pvt Ltd.


"We are excited to bring KTM bicycles to India to cater to this growing demand and not just deliver unmatched quality and performance but also an exceptional buying and ownership experience," Chopra added.

The tie-up with KTM Bike Industries is in line with the company's vision to introduce millennials and Gen-Z to an active lifestyle, encouraging them to reclaim the outdoors, AlphaVector said.

"For 56 years, we bleed orange. KTM Bike Industries keep the highest standard of making bikes and never stop exploring. It's our pleasure to partner with AlphaVector to introduce our prime bike to Indian market," KTM Bike Industries Managing Directors Johanna Urkauf and Stefan Limbrunner said.

KTM's high-quality and performance-driven portfolio combined with AlphaVector's unique omnichannel business model will aim to cater to this growing segment, the statement said, adding that as much as 75 per cent of the demand is expected to come from cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad.

AlphaVector has a presence across over 350 cities with a strong retail network of over 700 stores.

Founded in 2015, the bicycle maker, which has got investments from Fireside Ventures, Avaana Capital and Titan Capital, had early last month forayed into the e-bicycle segment, rolling out its Meraki Brand in the country.

1/7
It’s usually the rider who defines a bike. But these superbikes from movies stretch our imagination from being conventional to unreal and beyond.

This monstrous two-wheeler stands out with its unconventional architecture. It requires it to be piloted partly in a ‘Superman position’ and steered by the shoulders instead of hands. Actually driven in the movie The Dark Knight (2008), it was conceptualised by Nathan Crowley, who also created the Batmobile. The bike has 20-inch front and rear tyres, and the engines are in the hubs of the wheels. Crowley never revealed the power of its engine.

It has no suspensions, is powered by hellfire and could not be destroyed by any means. The Hell Cycle can move at incredible speeds, move up vertical surfaces, ride over water and is sometimes capable of flight. The wheels are constantly on fire, which leaves a trail along the road when moving.

The legendary warrior in the Priest (2011) blasts around the dystopian world in his Gladius jet-bike looking for vampires. The striking thing about it, apart from the huge turbine at the front, is its extended length and the low ride height. It uses a drag-style swingarm to lengthen the wheelbase by seven-feet.

The sleek high-speed two-wheel that leaves trails of neon in Tron: Legacy (2010) is a fifth-generation Lightcycle that flaunts a hubless wheel design. It is powered by liquid energy, and isn’t bound by the limitations of engineering and traditional road requirements. The bike is generated from a baton, with the baton splitting in half and forming the light cycle between the two halves and below the rider.
