KTM 200 Duke Launched, It Now Looks Like The 390 Duke

News by Team Drivio | 20 Jun 2023

The credit for it looking like its elder sibling goes to similar-looking LED headlight. 

  • KTM has given the 200 Duke a brand-new LED headlight. 
  • For an LED headlight, KTM has now increased the asking price by Rs 3,155. 
  • Its rivals include the Bajaj Pulsar NS200, Honda Hornet 2.0 and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. 

New KTMs that are better than the current ones will come out in about a year. But to make buyers in 2023 happier, KTM has made a small update to the 200 Duke. They replaced the old-fashioned halogen headlights with LED lights, just like the older models. Now, it costs Rs 1.96 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It's a bit harder to tell the models apart now, but as a motorcycle, it feels more modern... well, almost!

The 200 Duke is one of the most exciting 200cc motorcycles available now. It looks tough and sharp, like its older siblings, but some parts, like the headlights and the display screen, looked really old-fashioned. However, they fixed one of those problems in the update.

Maximum torque19.3Nm

It's still the most powerful 200cc bike, with a 199.5cc, liquid-cooled engine that produces 25PS and 19.3Nm of power. Everything else about the bike stays the same - it has an upside-down fork at the front and a mono shock at the back, a 320mm front disc brake and a 230mm back brake, and 17-inch alloy wheels.

In its category, the KTM 200 Duke competes with the Bajaj Pulsar NS200, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, and Honda Hornet 2.0. But now, with a price of Rs 1.96 lakh, which is Rs 3,155 more than before, it's even more expensive, especially when compared to its rivals.
