KTM and Bajaj have been sincerely working on the KTM Duke 200 which was launched in the Brazilian market lately. Speculations are in the air that the India launch could happen anytime during October or in November and the latest news has reassured us to an extent.
The bike has been spotted recently on the old Mumbai Pune highway and surely it was a treat for the observer. The bike has the best looks in its class and even without any fairing, unlike the Honda CBR250R or Yamaha R15, it looks brilliant and has its own road presence.
Talking about the looks of it there is a lot to to say. The rear of the bike is very impressive and a wide tyre just adds the presence to it. From the side it is quite stocky, just like the Yamaha FZ-16, but slightly taller. The body graphics catch your eyes immediately and look great.
The rear tyre hugger, mono shock rear suspension and front forks add a inexpressible feel to it. The engine of the bike sounds noisy, which is a KTM trait so we should worry much about it. The most impressive part is the acceleration of the bike as it is quick enough to beat even the Bajaj Pulsar 220.

No doubt it is going to be a hit if priced in accordance with the current competition and i do hope KTM to bring in other siblings from the KTM Duke family soon.
