    Q. Which would win KTM RC 200 VS KTM 200 Duke?
    • 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
    • Engine and power output similar. Rc good for looks but Duke doesn't lack behind. Touring much easy and comfortable on Duke after minor modifications than RC.

    Q. I am going to buy a bike, I am really confused between KTM RC 200 or KTM 200 Duke, you guys suggest me a good bike. I am not a long rider, or a street freak, but the bike has to look stylish.
    • Looks are subjective and only you can decide on your own..th duke 200 beats the rc200 in comfort and practicality and The rc is track focus bike and the design, handlebars etc everything is set according to that so there won't be offering of comfort and all set to target the immense feel of riding & riding posture, even the smallest bump you can feel it and no matter what & how many techniques you use to drive at end of the long traffic day you end up hurting your wrist & back, coming to track & highway it gives hell lot of fun compared to Duke 200..The duke 200 is practical bike & posture is set in that way completely upright you can drive all day happily with out hurting anything.The suspension setup is Same for both it is on stiffer side but duke 200 is better on p*t holes and speedbraker because of upright posture. On highway the windblast turns the duke 200 down because of street naked design which the RC has the advantage over that.
    • If you like Nude bikes then you can go for 200 Duke & if you want to look stylish & want to feel the racing bike then go for RC200.As i am also a RC 200 Owner.
    • Take a spin on both bikes.But according to your requirement RC will suit you.But RC is costlier than Duke in both service and Intial price

    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.
    • Duke is not meant for under 60kmph it's all abt riding atleast upto 80 kmph. please dnt bite your bait by choosing Duke 200. for your riding style as you said please go with yamaha fz 16 v3. the better commuter.
