2017 KTM Duke 200

After updating the RC series lately, KTM today launched the 2017 KTM Duke 200 in India priced at Rs 143,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Along with the Duke 200, KTM also rolled-out the new Duke 390, which was revealed publicaly at last year’s EICMA. Coming to the Duke 200, the changes made to the naked bike are subtle and it continues to derive power from the same engine which now complies with the BS IV emission.

Updates to the naked streetfighter include new brake lever, integrated passenger grab rail, new ignition key location, new instrument cluster, new sub-frame and redesigned pillion seat. As for the power, it continues using the same 199.5cc, single cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid-cooled engine from the preceding model, which has been calibrated to comply with the BS IV emission. Mated to a six-speed transmission, the engine makes top power of 25bhp along with peak torque of 19.2Nm. Read- New KTM Duke 390 – Price, Specs & Other Details

New design elements like the refreshed body graphics and orange rims reinforce the sporty character. In terms of equipment, the bike borrows most of the equipment from the new Duke 390. The naked streetfighter comes with new brake lever, new master cylinder and reworked pillion seat with integrated grab rails. Stopping power is derived from disc brakes and ABS adds further dint to it. Suspension mechanism comprises WP upside-down front forks and monoshock rear unit.

    the old version of Duke 200 and Duke 390 are much much much better than the upcoming 2017 model!!
    underbelly exhaust was the best!!
    backside of the bike looks like a pulsar 200 ns model!!
    2017 upcoming model would be a flop!!
    let the old version be as it is!!
    its the best one KTM has got!!

    I’m a huge fan of duke, bt didnt bought it yet, just because my height is 5.1 and its too high for me, however duke 390 is a bit lower than 200 but out of my budget, i really liked the new model inspired from worlds most powerfull v-twin naked bike the super duke R. But the saddle height is increased by 35mm in duke 390 ’17, i request KTM to not just only worry about indian road but also about our avg. height.. 🙁
