KTM 200 Duke Launched – Price Rs 1.17 lakh (Ex-Showroom Delhi)

Yes, It’s been launched at a killer introductory price of Rs 1,17,500 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) price tag and that clearly undercuts its immediate competition, the Honda CBR 250R and Yamaha R15 2.0

KTM 200 Duke Launched - Price Rs 1.17 lakh (Ex-Showroom Delhi)

Standing tall at 165 mm, the KTM 200 Duke gets its thrust from a 199.50 cc DOHC 4V engine that produces 25PS of power @ 10,000 rpm and churns out 19Nm of torque @ 8,000 rpm.  Although KTM’s decision to limit the red line on the 200 Duke at 135 km/h may disappoint some, the linear manner in which this power will be delivered all through the rev band will define its ultimate purpose for riders both in the city and on long distance runs.

The KTM engine is all-new, featuring light aluminium construction, double overhead camshafts with finger followers, four valves, fuel injection and liquid cooling. The engine is heavily oversquare, allowing a big, short light piston to work a short stroke to provide quick-revving power. A light forged crankshaft, similarly promotes the quick revving power delivery, sort of how dirtbike engines are designed today – brand perfect since KTM is traditionally known for dirt bikes.

Yes, KTM are already working out a range of aftermarket bits for the bike and its rider. KTM are recognized as having one of the widest and cleverest aftermarket catalogue in the business ranging from performance and race parts to cheeky things like their famous toaster, accelerate and brake slippers and yes, a full line of leashes, sweaters and what have you for your pets.

Launched at an introductory price of Rs 1.17 Lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) the KTM 200 Duke will be available across KTM dealerships in India. Orange will be the colour to look out for as Bajaj Pro-Biking outlets have now been replaced with their KTM brand, and will be your one stop shop for bookings, test rides and purchase information about the Duke 200

The Duke will be powered by a 200cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected engine and will take on Yamaha’s R15 and Honda’s CBR250R.

“The bike is already exported to Europe so in terms of production its already something that is in process,” Bajaj said. KTM President Stefan Pierer will come down for the launch, he added.

KTM Duke 200 is a first bike from KTM to be launched in India by Bajaj Auto. It has been jointly developed by Bajaj Auto and KTM of Austria. The bike is produced at Chakan plant of Bajaj Auto. Bajaj Auto has nearly 40% stake in KTM.

Though the official pricing has not yet been announced, one should expect a price range of anywhere between the Yamaha R15 (1.1 lakh ex-showroom) and the Honda CBR250R (1.5 lakh ex-showroom).

KTM Duke 200 is very light weight and generates power to weight ratio of 200bhp/ton (Dry Weight).  It has Chromium-Molybdenum trellis frame with steel sub frame, Bosh fuel injection system and a compact three chamber silencer. KTM Duke 200cc has top notch quality parts with a high performance engine

KTM Duke 200 – Launching on 3rd January 2012

News of the KTM-Bajaj alliance churning out an India-only 200cc model has been doing the rounds of the internet ever since the first KTM 125 was shown last year at the EICMA fair

KTM Duke 200 - Launching on 3rd January 2012

The KTM Duke 200 that is widely speculated will be launched on 3rd of  January 2012 across Bajaj Probiking showrooms in India. The KTM Duke 200 will be priced at INR 1.25-1.31 Lakhs which is in my humble opinion is a steal!

India’s first Duke comes powered by a 200cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke, four valves, liquid-cooled and fuel injected engine. Bore and Stroke measurements are an ultra short stroke 72mm x 49mm, so expect the 200 to display a big affinity for high revs. Its bantamweight kerb weight of 137kg will make the 200 Duke considerably lighter than every Indian rival in its class, and 25bhp of peak power makes for a solid power-to-weight ratio of 182.4bhp per tonne. Expect a close ratio, six-speed, one-down, five-up shifting transmission.

The 200 Duke will carry the bulk of its weight low, including an under-slung exhaust system that sits just below the swing arm pivot section, to keep centre of gravity down for optimal handling. It also comes with 150mm travel suspension front and rear, with tough 43mm upside down forks in front and a mono-shock rear system, complemented by an ultra lightweight, inverted die-cast alloy swing arm.

Sporty, low profile tyres will wrap around 17 inch rims front and rear, a 110 section in front and substantial 150 section rear unit. Brakes are a 300mm disc in front gripped by four-piston, radial mounted calipers and a 230mm disc at the rear.

KTM’s top boss Stefan Pierer has confirmed that the India-centric KTM 200 will make its debut at the 2012 Auto Expo and there will be a bigger capacity 350cc model that will be launched the year after. Pierer also confirmed that the Mattighofen-based firm will introduce a 200cc variant of the KTM 125 in the Indian market during the 11th Auto Expo, which will be held in Delhi from January 7, 2012 to January 11, 2012.

He also made an announcement that a bigger 350cc variant, again an India-specific model, is also in the pipeline and it is expected to hit the market by 2013. Designed and manufactured by Bajaj Auto in Chakan near Pune, the KTM 125 model is built around a versatile platform that allows incorporating bigger capacity engines in the framework without significantly hiking the manufacturing costs yet consorting with the respective markets.

The Pro-biking showrooms will all be remodeled to sport KTM Logos. Also, there will be no Bajaj logos on the KTM Duke 200 and it will be sold as a separate entity.
