    The 2017 KTM 200 Duke is powered by 199.5 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which is now BS-IV compliant. There is no change in power output and the motor continues to make 24.6 bhp and 19.2 Nm of torque. That said, the 2017 edition is now 5 kg heavier with a kerb weight of 148 kg. The good thing is that the additional weight feels negligible once you place yourself behind the handle. Unlike the new KTM 250 Duke or the fancier 390 that gets the new split frame, the 2017 KTM 200 Duke uses the same single Trellis frame. Considering that both frames are largely the same, save for construction, the 200 Duke is not at a loss here. 43 mm USD front forks and a monoshock rear suspension setup that are tuned on the firm side support the bike and contribute to its potent cornering skills. It rides fast and dives sharp, and those are the attributes that have made the 200 Duke so popular in the first place. Ride quality is stiff as well, something that's more apparent having ridden the new 250 Duke. Nevertheless, the seat cushioning is now softer making it more comfortable for longer periods in the saddle. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.

    Nope if you want to cruise in triple digits speed...The character of Duke 200 is low end power but struggles at the top end so it makes cruising on highway bit difficult.. And also the tank capacity is around 10 liters which is very small you need to keep a eye on petrol bunks for every 200 + kilometers. Also the seat isn't the comfortable one for long rides but for short drives it's quite manageable.. you need a after market air seats for sure if you want to go for an long ride.

    It can do long distance touring as the engine can cruise at 110 kmph all day long. However the seat is on the firm side and foot pegs are rear set, so it might get uncomfortable after riding for sometime. You can make some modifications like extra cushion in seat and handlebar riser to make is better, however there are better options available in the market today like Dominar and Mojo if you want to buy a bike just for touring

    It is good, i have done many long rides, max 600 kms in a day you can do comfortably, but if touring is your only purpose look for other bikes like dominar or FZ25
