    Q. Please suggest me to buy a new bike because I am confused about taking the Duke 200 or Royal Enfield Classic 350 and my height is 5.56 and weigh 65 kg and i am 30 please tell me which is suitable bike.
    • Both bikes are of different segments. As per your height, you might face some issue on 200 Duke as it has a seat height of 810 mm, but you will be able to ride both the bikes. if you are looking for a fun to ride bike and want better power and handling, you may go for KTM 200 Duke. On the other hand, Royal Enfield Classic 350 would be good option if you want relaxed ergonomics and like calm riding. You may both the bikes according to their variants too. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Check out details.
    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
