Q. Which is better bike Duke 200 or Duke 125?
  • Both are completely different from each other.. As they both built on same platform and use of same parts the handling is similar.. If need power blindly go for duke 200 it is the best revving engine in the low end... Need a mileage with ktm looks then go for Duke 125... If your on budget & planning for duke 125 instead go for the Pulsar 200 NS it makes more sense then buying of same priced duke 125
  • Duke 200 is the best if you need the power.. duke 125 isn't the best in performance ... to make it simple Duke 200 gives you good low end power with avg mileage of 28-33 kmpl sometimes 35kmpl if you are not hard on throttle... Duke 125 doesn't have such power but has the ktm DNA and dynamics as it was built on same duke 200 platform but due to high low cc you'll getting a good mileage of 45kmpl
  • If you want performance Duke 200 is the one.But if mileage concerns you aswell its better to opt for Duke 125. Looks wise both are dashing and palatable eye candy.
