The Austrian moto maker, KTM created a hurricane in the Indian motorcycle market recently by unveiling the all-new 2017 KTM 390 Duke a few days back at the EICMA. The bike has been given the similar designing updates as its bigger 390cc sibling.
From front to rear end, the bike has been transformed into an even more mean looking hooligan with new headlights, side body panels, fuel tank, tail section and more. The bike gets a new rear subframe and also a new engine cover sits below the bike. Unlike the 390 Duke, the 200 Duke doesn’t get the front LED lights. Apart from the all the 390 Duke based upgrades, the bike also misses out on TFT instrument console to keep the manufacturing costs into the limit.
Talking about the engine, the bike receives the same tried and tested 199cc single-cylinder engine delivering the 25bhp as before. On the other hand, the bike is now Euro4 compliant thanks to its new exhaust assembly. The bike is expected to launch in India by early 2017.
When launched it will take down its competitors like Benelli TNT 25, Mahindra Mojo and Royal Enfield Himalayan. Stay tuned to ACH for more motoring news.
