    Q. Which is better for City ride Duke 200 or Duke 250? My daily riding will be of 20Km with an average speed of 50kmph. My height is 5'8" and age is 18 year.
    • If you are a beginner level rider, then Duke200 will be the best choice for you. This 200cc machine is no joke and this has some serious pulling power given it is a 200cc engine. the 200 is 30k cheaper than its elder sibling the duke250.i will surely say duke250 will give better mileage when you ride it at 6000 rpm max smoothly. this is because of tuning in the ECU. the power is higher on rpm above 6000. so you need not worry about mileage because both will provide the same in the end.since the duke200 comes with an underbelly exhaust you will love the exhaust sound (i suppose). duke 200 seat height is 20mm lower than 250 which favors you. If you like modifying your machine then you can use that extra 30k to modify your 200cc like adding a fog lamp or changing the mirrors to the bar end which adds to the already sharp and stunning look than just buying a 250cc duke. So you can buy 200cc duke, enjoy your riding and then upgrade to a much higher cc machine like the duke 390 or duke 790 in the future. ENJOY SAFE RIDING:)
    • Hey, I hope you're doing well. About the question, Duke 200 would be a better choice as far as I think. If you are just starting to ride(seriously), Duke 200 is a very good bike. And one more thing the mileage on the Duke 200 is better than 250 by a slight margin but if you look at it in a long run, it makes a huge difference. So, I would suggest you to go for Duke 200 but it'll be your call after all. Happy and Safe Riding.
    • For your requirement, both bikes will serve the purpose, Duke 200 will give you better mileage due to the smaller engine, however the Duke 250 has a lighter slipper clutch which is more comfortable in bumper to bumper traffic. Duke 250 has slightly more comfortable seat too

    Q. Which one is the best KTM 200 Duke or KTM 250 Duke in terms of mileage and service cost?
    • The Duke 200 will have better mileage because of the smaller engine, service cost should be similar, however since Duke 200 has a fiber tank versus the metal tank on duke 250, Duke 200 should be cheaper to repair if you crash the bike or have an accident.
    • Service cost is somewhat similar, 200 is economical and there is not much difference in power output, mileage is obviously more on 200.
    • City use mailage low Service cost duke 200Highway use touring.. Mailage 30 or below 30 top end good sliper clutch

    Q. Which would win KTM RC 200 VS KTM 200 Duke?
    • Ever since its debut, the KTM 200 Duke has been the benchmark bike of its segment and still remains so. If you’re looking for a bike that offers great acceleration, loves to corner and has a hooligan nature, the 200 Duke is the bike for you and a great option for someone entering the world of performance bikes. The only grouse we have with the KTM 200 Duke is its super stiff ride quality and the fact that ABS isn’t offered even as an option. On the other hand, the RC 200 has set the bar quite high for the entry-level sports bike segment. The committed ergonomics might not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you are looking for cornering dynamics with an added dose of power but are on a budget, your search ends here. We would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
    • Actually they're built on same platform but different in characters duke is of naked street bike and can be used day to day use with comfort because of the upright sitting posture,Coming to rc the name RC stands for Road /Competition i.e made for road and track equally but i say it is completely best suited for track /track days the clip on handle bars with lower seat on RC gives you discomfort on rough roads or if you ride for longer hours even on uneven roads u can feel every bit of it... So there is no WIN OR LOSE both are best in there own ways
    • No difference as their topspeed is limited till 136kmph as far as drag race is concerned.KTM RC is known for trackdays.Duke is basically jack of all trades.Also do a test ride as ergonamically Duke is better, but still everyone has different taste you may like aggressive stance of rc so test ride will be great
