KTM Launches Duke 200 ABS at 1.60 Lakh: Update – Gets Single-Channel Unit

Duke 200 ABS price is only about 8k higher than the non-ABS variant…

Four months ahead of the mandatory ruling, KTM has launched the Duke 200 ABS in India. In a press release shared moments back, the company announced the new model for the domestic market.

The new Duke 200 ABS also continues to adorn the older styling of the Duke family but now gets an ABS unit by Bosch. KTM has not mentioned if it is a single-channel unit like the Pulsar RS200 or a proper dual-channel system like the Dominar/Duke 390. We have shared our query with the team and they have promised to revert with the official word on this ASAP.

Though, by the pricing difference and the language used (or rather it could be an intentional skipping), it could be a single-channel ABS unit only. We will update the story once we have the final word on this.

As we had predicted, we have got the official confirmation that it is a Single-Channel ABS unit that KTM has deployed on the smallest KTM for India. This is mainly done to keep costs in check and not take the motorcycle higher up the pedestal which could impact its impressive sales.

KTM has cleared that both the non-ABS as well as the ABS trims will continue to be on sale for now.

As you can see there is a difference of just Rs 8243 on the ex-showroom price of both these motorcycles and it doesn’t really make any sense to opt for the unsafe variant any more!
