UNVEILED: 2017 KTM 200 & 250 DUKEPosted On: November 22, 2016 By : AutoLife Team
KTM has revealed the details of the upcoming 200 Duke along with the 250 Duke which is available in some international markets. Both these models draw heavy inspirations from the KTM 1290 SuperDuke. However, both models miss out the split headlamps as seen on the new 390 Duke.
2017 KTM 250 DUKE:
The new KTM 250 Duke is powered by a 249cc single-cylinder, water-cooled, 4-stroke engine which makes 31 bhp of maximum power along with a peak torque output of 24 Nm while power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed gearbox. The 250 Duke also gets the new exhaust system and slipper clutch.
However, it misses out on ride-by-wire technology and the new TFT display. Stoppage power comes through 300 mm front disc with 4-piston caliper along with 230 mm rear disc with 2-piston caliper from Bybre. Similarly, a dual channel 9M Bosch ABS system is standard. The fuel tank can now store 13.4 litre of fuel.
2017 KTM 200 DUKE:
Like the 250 Duke, the upcoming KTM 200 Duke will share most of its styling cues with the 2017 KTM 390 Duke. It will also feature a more powerful engine.
It will be powered by a 199.5 cc single-cylinder engine that is expected to develop 24.6 bhp. KTM has already started testing the new 200 Duke on Indian roads. Expect the bike to launch in the second quarter of 2017.
