After the debut of their MY2017 Duke 125 and Duke 390 at the EICMA show, KTM has finally revealed the new Duke 200 and 250 which will be made available in most Asian markets. Both the bikes were however not present at the event.
Unlike previous (/existing) generation, there are slight differences between the 2017 Duke 390 and 2017 Duke 200/250. First of all, the headlamp is slightly different and loses out on the split in the middle. They do however look very similar.
If you look slightly higher, you can see that the instrument console is not the flat, rectangular TFT colour unit which we saw on the 390. Instead, it is very similar to that on the existing bike. Everything else is shared between the Duke models, including the addition of a subframe. We must also commend on the beautiful white paint job on the Duke 250 that might be extended to the Duke 200.
KTM hasn’t revealed any details on the bikes as of yet but we feel that some of the premium features that we saw on the Duke 390/125 might be omitted. This could include ride-by-wire and dual function forks.
-We’ve talked more about the new 2017 KTM Duke 200 based on earlier spy shots.
Powering the 2017 KTM Duke 200 and 250 will be the same engines that are on the existing models. These are a 24.6 Bhp producing 199.5 cc and a 30.87 Bhp producing 248.8 cc mills respectively (power/torque figures are not expected to change).
Either the new Duke 200 or the Duke 250 (recent rumor) will go on sale in India next year.
