KTM 200 Duke Latest Updates
The KTM 200 Duke has been leading the charge of performance-oriented 200cc motorcycles for a while now. The company updated the motorcycle last year with a single-channel ABS unit, which commands a premium of Rs 8,200 over the standard variant. Apart from the safety update, the motorcycle remains unchanged. Design wise, it still packs the same looks of the older-gen 390 Duke. It gets a revised set of graphics, orange alloy wheels and three different colour options - orange, black and white.
Its features list consists of an all-digital instrument console, with digital readouts for a clock, trip meter, odometer and distance to empty. Other notable features include an underbelly exhaust, an LED tail light and 43mm USD front forks. Powering the motorcycle is a BSIV-compliant 199.5cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor which churns out 25.1PS of power and a maximum torque of 19.2Nm at 8,000rpm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
After the implementation of stricter safety norms from 1 April 2019, the 200 Duke is available only in the single-channel ABS variant, priced at Rs 1,60,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). The KTM 200 Duke competes against the TVS RTR 200 4V and the Bajaj NS200.

KTM 200 Duke Highlights
Powering the KTM 200 Duke is a 200c single-cylinder engine. The liquid-cooled motor delivers 25PS at 10,000rpm and 19.2Nm of peak torque arrives at 8,000rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Given its 148kg kerb weight, performance of the 200 Duke is impressive and it is the fastest bike in its segment. The bike employs a trellis frame and gets an aluminium swingarm, while fuel tank capacity stands at 10.2 litres. It also features USD front forks and a preload adjustable monoshock at the back. Braking is done by a single disc brake at both ends.
Design and Features
The KTM 200 Duke now comes with the safety net of single-channel ABS. Priced at Rs 1.6 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) it commands a premium of around Rs 8,200 over the standard variant. Apart from its performance, the styling of the 200 Duke played a vital part in the bike gaining prominence among Indian bikers. Unlike most bikes in the segment which are heavily loaded on the styling front for better on-road presence, the 200 Duke adopts a slim and minimalistic approach which helps it stand apart from its rivals. The sharp headlight, exposed trellis frame, angular tank and orange 17-inch wheels make the KTM 200 Duke a visually arresting motorcycle. Talking about features, the 200cc motorcycle features an all-digital instrument console, which displays details like speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, real-time mileage, average fuel consumption, average speed and more. The KTM 200 Duke is available in three colour options - white, orange and black.
Yamaha FZ 25: Despite the fact that the Yamaha FZ 25 has 50cc more displacement, it lags behind the KTM 200 Duke in terms of power figures. While it might not offer similar performance to the 200 Duke, the FZ 25 is a comfortable and relatively fast commuter that can double up as an able tourer also. Also, the FZ 25 is cheaper than the KTM offering and has the assurance of Yamaha’s bulletproof reliability.
Bajaj Pulsar NS 200: In our comparison test with the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, the NS200 came across as a well-balanced package that’s ideal for your daily city runs, occasional highway cruising and even for some fun on the twisties. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 offers a lot more grunt, better-stopping power and well-balanced ergonomics in comparison to the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. It also feels a lot more relaxed at high speeds.
TVS Apache RTR 200: The TVS RTR 200 is a very capable motorcycle. When compared to the NS200, the Apache RTR 200 is not only commuter-friendly but also more economical to run in the city. It is a good option for someone looking for a fun-packed motorcycle with good low-end torque and a dash of performance.
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.
