KTM 200 Duke Specifications
Power comes from a 199cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected DOHC, 4-valve motor. The BS6-compliant motor sees no drop in performance and continues to deliver the same 25PS at 10,000rpm and 19.2Nm at 8000rpm. It gets a six-speed gearbox. Given that the 200 Duke BS6 weighs 9kg more than its BS4 predecessor, expect a slight dip in overall performance. The 200 Duke BS6 continues to be the most powerful 200cc motorcycle you can buy in India. The KTM 200 Duke gets a new split trellis frame. This frame seen on the larger 250 Duke and 390 Duke offers better serviceability and is more affordable to replace in case you damage it in a crash. With the new BS6-compliant exhaust, ground clearance has dropped 20mm and is 155mm now. It gets premium WP suspension in the form of 43mm upside-down forks and preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking is via ByBre 300mm front disc with radially mounted callipers and a 230mm rear disc. The tyres continue to be the same 110/70-17 front and 150/60-17 MRF REVZ units.
KTM 200 Duke Design
The KTM 200 Duke now looks sharper and identical to the 250 Duke. To tell them apart, KTM has given both motorcycles different liveries. Also, the 250 Duke has a side-slung exhaust while the 200 Duke continues to use an underbelly exhaust setup. The new KTM bike has the ‘Duke’ name across the fuel tank with the 200 logo in smaller font below it. It is available in two new colours: Electronic Orange and Ceramic White.
KTM 200 Duke Features
The 200 Duke continues to use a halogen headlamp but now gets LED DRLs. It also has an LED tail lamp and LED turn indicators. The fully digital instrument console has been carried over and includes the speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, real-time mileage, average fuel consumption, and average speed. While the BS4 200 Duke had single-channel ABS, KTM has equipped the 200 Duke BS6 with dual-channel ABS.
KTM 200 Duke Competitors
The KTM 200 Duke competes with the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 and TVS Apache RTR 200. The new Honda Hornet 2.0 is just a rung lower and cannot be considered as its direct rival. While not direct rivals, the Yamaha MT-15, Yamaha FZ 25 and Suzuki Gixxer 250 serve as viable competitors as well.
KTM 200 Duke Variants
The KTM 200 Duke BS6 is available in just one variant.

- Duke 200 NegativesQuite expensive for a 200cc, Motor needs to be revved hard to extract the maximum
- Expert’s ConclusionThe design update has given the KTM 200 Duke a new lease of life. Also, the fact that the new BS6-compliant motor does not lose out on performance almost makes it feel like a win-win. That said, the substantial hike in price means it is now more expensive than larger motorcycles such as the Suzuki Gixxer 250. However, when it comes to thrills, the KTM 200 Duke delivers it in spades!
