KTM 200 Duke Gets Safer With ABS

The ABS is a single-channel unit, though, and is around 8,200 more expensive than the non-ABS version

  • KTM 200 Duke ABS is priced at Rs 1.6 lakh (ex-Delhi).
  • The single-channel unit is not switchable.
  • Offered in three colours: orange, white and black.
  • Available with 450 dealers across the country.

KTM India has launched the ABS variant of its entry-level bike, the 200 Duke. The ABS unit is from Bosch, and this variant is priced at Rs 1.6 lakh while the non-ABS costs Rs 1,51,757, ex-showroom Delhi. The new ABS version comes in three colours: orange, white and black, just like the non-ABS variant. KTM has confirmed that they will continue selling the non-ABS variant, presumably until the new safety norms come into effect in April next year. We believe KTM has chosen to go with a single-channel unit to keep the costs competitive.

Interestingly, the 200 Duke’s Indian twin, the Bajaj NS 200 ABS, is Rs 12,000 more expensive than its non-ABS variant. This bike also gets a single-channel unit. Coming back to the Austrian hooligan, the bike remains the same mechanically. You get a 199.5cc liquid-cooled engine that churns out 25PS of power and 19.2Nm of torque. Suspension bits include WP inverted front forks and a WP monoshock. Chief rivals include the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V ABS, Yamaha FZ25 and Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 ABS. We expect KTM to eventually launch the ABS variant of the 250 Duke as well. Here’s KTM’s official statement regarding the launch:
