2023 KTM 200 Duke Launched; Gets LED Headlamps

2023 200 Duke price has seen a revision of Rs 3000 and the overall increment since launch in 2012 is Rs 78,000 – in over a decade…

KTM has updated its 200 Duke in India for the year 2023. The new motorcycle gets all-LED headlamps and that is the biggest upgrade in the model. It is the same unit that the bigger 250 and 390 Dukes feature.

KTM informs that the headlight unit comes with 32 LEDs with 6 reflectors for the beam and an additional LED DRL unit. With this – the 200 Duke now comes with LEDs all around – LED blinkers and LED tail lamp. That is about it – nothing else has been altered.

The motorcycle continues with the same sporty set-up of sharp styling that is loved by the youth. It offers impeccable handling through split steel trellis frame with an aluminium swingarm. All of this is bolted on WP upside down forks at the front and WP monoshock at the rear. This set-up makes the KTM’s 200 a phenomenal handler – both on the tracks and in cities.

Coming to the motor – the 200cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled powerhouse churns 25 PS of peak power and 19.2 Nm of max torque that offers quick acceleration – a trait that has made KTM extremely popular in India. The older LCD instrument cluster has been carried over as well.

At that price the new model is about Rs 3000 costlier than before. This also means that the new Duke has come precariously close to that Rs 2 lakh mark. If you remember, the 200 Duke was the debut model from KTM in India and started its innings at Rs 1.18 Lakh ex-showroom, back around 2012.

The 200 Duke is offered in two color themes – Electronic Orange and Dark Silver Metallic. With this the only visual difference between the 200 and bigger Dukes is the underbelly exhaust. While the high selling 200 continues with an underbelly, the 250 and 390 come with a side mounted exhaust unit.
