Bajaj auto has been working on the new generation 200 and 390 Duke from quite some time now. We already spotted the 390 Duke quite a few times and now the smaller sibling of the same was spied real close taking a walk out on the asphalt.
- What are the changes?
As expected the 200 Duke will receive all the visual updates as seen on the 390 Duke. From absolutely new headlight, longer tan panels redesigned tail light assembly and new subframe. The 200 Duke will be an all-new machine from inside out.
- Is the engine new?
The bike will be propelled by the same 199cc single-cylinder engine as seen on the present generation 200 Duke. It will be tweaked for a smoother power delivery and better performance. The engine will also be BS-4 compliant and hence will meet the stringent emission norms. It churns out 25bhp of maximum power and 19Nm of peak torque.
- What is the expected launch date of new 200 Duke?
The bike will make its way to the market in the March 2017, it is possible that Bajaj will launch the same around AutoExpo 2017 as well.
- What is the expected price of the new KTM 200 Duke?
The present KTM 200 Duke is priced at Rs 1.45 (ex-showroom, Delhi), the new one will be around 1.50 Lakh, not more than that.
