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 one is better R15 v3 or KTM RC 200?
  • Both are best in there own ways.For RC 200:1)Engine is much better than R15 V3 2) Initial power is more3)Fuel Efficiency:35-45 km/L4) Maintenance cost is more comparing to V35)Top speed:138Km/H6)No vibration at all7) Excellent brightness for the both Dim & Highbeam For R15 V3:1) Fuel Efficiency:45-502) Maintenance cost is less3) Initial power is less comparing to Rc2004)Top speed: 160Km/H 5)Low brightness for the headlights
  • RC 200 much better option than R15 V3 but only if you budget permits it provides an adjustable suspension with the very other body that can do well on track as well as on normal roads but if you are running short on budget then go for an 583 has optimum performance with in its budget.
  • I have been a KTM rider past 3 years with my RC 200, experience has been good , talking about RC and R15 v3 first of all Power comes in Picture RC is 25bhp where as R15 is 19 Bhp, both bike have super sporty riding position,so comfort wise both bikes are not great ,the Yamaha R15 v3 handle bar is more lower then that of RC , if you want to upgrade to higher cc bike later then would suggest ktm rc as you will get use to Power later on which is important for when u go for higher cc bike

    Really worth the price . The ride quality and its performance is just awesome. The mileage is good in respect to a 200cc motorcycle. I really loved it. It has a high seat which causes trouble for short riders like me, I am 5.5 ft tall and mostly struggles while taking you turns and at traffic signal stops otherwise every thing is fine. Further I could lower the seat height by adjusting suspension setup but the service center told me not to do it as the KTM company has set it by keeping balanced setup any changes in it can make it worse and reasult in a accident. I kept it as it is though I am struggling but as time passes I will get accustomed with it and learn the tricks and techniques to control the bike smoothly. I will recommend any below 5.5ft height should avoid choosing KTM bikes. Though below 5.5 ft height guys can drive the bike but its very difficult to cope up. I got a mileage of 40 kmpl on my daily commuits.The bike itself is a Beast. I love what ever i have got from ktm at the price point neglecting the height factor. I really love it.#Get Duked#Ready To Race

    Excellent value for money motorcycle. This bike is an all rounder for any occasion , be it track days or touring or daily commutes ; this bike carries all the tasks with ease and tonnes of excitement when you twist your wrist. Maintenance is decent, it can feel expensive but the time intervals are at least 10000 Kms or Yearly wise. Cost can go up incase you crash the bike but parts are not too expensive or too cheap , they are always available at the SVCs. A wonderful package still and will not disappoint you if you're considering to get one.

    Zero parts failure for two years so far. Great torque and responsiveness. My inseam at 840mm is perfect for the seat height.It has no ABS and I thought that would be a great feature to have and felt it should have been standard equipment for the price of the bike. I'm very impressed by the stock mrf tires so i changed to pirelli's after about 250 km.

    KTM's all bikes designs are very attractive and futuristic. Duke200's engine performance is very good. But the pillion seat is just small. It is not comfortable for dual. It is very good under 200 variant bikes in India. It is very nice bike.

    many people ask me does back pain occur while driving long distance..Answer for that I doesn't feel any back pain with this...some of my friends said that they had wrist pain or shoulder pain ..that's because of they are sitting in wrong position... Don't allow your arms to get your body weight full on them,for that you need to put your arms as 'L' shape
