New Duke 200 Launched at 1.43 Lakhs; All You Need to Know

Despite the upgradation to BS4, prices of Duke 200 have remain unchanged...

2018 Duke 200 Launch

Along with the new-gen Duke 390 and Duke 250, KTM has also updated its Duke 200 in India. The biggest difference is that, India does NOT get the the international 2017 Duke 200 model and instead, it is the same older version with some minor updates.

2017 Duke 200 Changes & Quick Pointers

  • Unlike the other bigger Dukes in the family, the 2017 Duke 200 continues with the older design language.
  • It has been given new colour themes – black-white and orange-black with new graphics and orange alloy wheels like the Duke 390.
  • The side-mounted exhaust of the new-gen Duke is missing and it continues with the underbelly.
  • The engine has been updated to meet BS4 emission norms.
  • It also misses out on the split Trellis frame of the new-gen Dukes as well as the bigger fuel tank.

New Duke 200 Engine

2017 Duke 200 continues to produce 25 PS of peak power at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm of max torque at 8000 rpm from its single cylinder 199.5 cc fuel injected mill. It also continues with the same 10.2 liter fuel tank as compared to the 13.5 liter capacity of the new Dukes.

Since it is based on the existing Duke 200, prices have remain unaltered and it is the entry point into the KTM range.

New Duke 200 weighs 141 kg dry (148 kg kerb), which is 11+ kg heavier than the outgoing model. It also continues with MRF C1 and FC1 tyres.

The motorcycle is available in Orange, White and Black colour options. The idea behind keeping the Duke 200 in the older trim, according to what we believe, is because KTM expects Dominar 400 to eat into its share (though they are unrelated models) and hence it is kept as it was. KTM expects prospect buyers of Duke 200 to upgrade to the new Duke 250 which is Rs 30,000 costlier, if they want to own a KTM. We also foresee a discontinuation of the Duke 200 in the times to come, exactly what we had predicted many months back!

Bookings of the new Duke 200, along with other Dukes, have commenced from today.
