The eagerly awaited KTM Duke 200 has not been launched yet and is scheduled for 2012. The anticipation is growing to the extreme levels since it will be one of the smallest of the Duke family and the very first in the Indian market.
Ahead of its launch the bike’s pricing has leaked over the Internet and as per the same piece of information, it will be priced between Rs. 1.25 Lakhs and Rs. 1.31 Lakhs.
The 200 CC engine equipped by the bike will be a single cylinder, liquid cooled unit with four valves. The interesting part about the bike is its performance figures which stand at 26 BHP at 10,000 RPM and 20 Nm at 8,000 RPM for peak power and peak torque respectively.
The Duke 200 will come with many interesting features which are not seen in many sports bikes costing double as much as Duke. A very such feature is the USD front forks manufactured by Austrian suspension maker WP.
The bike will be sold through Bajaj Probiking showrooms which will be rebranded with the KTM logo. Also the showrooms will not sell the current models of Bajaj Pulsar but we can expect the 2012 Pulsar to be there.
We are glad to know the extremely competitive pricing of the bike and this would not only help KTM bag enough sales but will only do justice with the Bajaj’s value-for-money aspect.
