KTM DUKE 200 REVIEW and SPECS


KTM Duke 200 Review and Specifications - The presence of  KTM Duke 200 in the global market has been widely reported since long.

Features KTM 200 Duke

SILENCER
The compact, three-chamber silencer is positioned close to the machine's overall centre of gravity. This aids centralisation of masses and improves the easy handling of the KTM 200 Duke. Thanks to a regulated catalytic converter, the emissions are exemplary.

ENGINE
No minor development: Based on the state-of-the-art, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder four-stroke engine of the 125 Duke, the 2013 200 Duke's power unit has been changed substantially to generate 60 % more displacement and correspondingly fully developed power. New camshafts, larger valves, a larger piston with a completely new crank drive, new airbox and new exhaust layout. It all results in 19 kW (25 hp) and incredibly punchy torque, even at lower revs – with irresistible smoothness.

CYLINDER HEAD
Just as on the RC8 R, the four valves in the cylinder head of the KTM 200 Duke are actuated by two overhead camshafts and cam levers. This design is not only extremely reliable, but also offers low friction thanks to the ultra-hard carbon coating of the cam levers - releasing even more power.

COCKPIT
The 2013 200 Duke has everything that distinguishes a genuine KTM - from the high-quality chassis components to the multi-function cockpit, which even keeps you up to date with fuel consumption and remaining range. The extensive KTM PowerParts range gives you the option of adding your own individual style.

FUEL TANK
The shapely 11 l fuel tank on the 200 Duke not only provides the rider with perfect knee contact, but also guarantees a range of more than 300 kilometres even when ridden on the edge, thanks to the economical engine.

BRAKES
For 2013 a Bosch 9M-ABS makes the pleasure of the impressive Duke dynamics even safer and adds the finishing touch to what are unique chassis qualities in this segment. On the new 2013 200 Duke, the ABS – from Bosch as always with KTM - monitors the function of the powerful brake system with radially mounted four-piston calliper which gains even more braking power with the larger brake discs (increased from 280 to 300 mm diameter) - fun without risk, developed in close cooperation with the specialists from Bosch and Brembo. And for the stunt riders among us: the ABS is naturally disengageable

SEAT
For all its sportiness, the two-piece seat provides surprising long-distance comfort, perfect support and first-class ergonomics for rider and pillion. At 810 mm the seat height is low enough for a secure standing position, but also high enough for sports-oriented use and a genuine big-bike feeling.

ERGONOMICS
The 200 Duke is also a genuine motorcycle in terms of dimensions, providing plenty of space and freedom of movement. The gathered sitting position supports relaxed touring equally as well as committed cornering. Large contact surfaces ensure optimum control and perfect feedback.

SWINGARM
The KTM 200 Duke's lightweight, high-quality, pin-jointed swingarm is designed and produced according to the same principle as the 690 Duke. The light alloy swingarm with directly linked WP shock absorber excels with extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability.

TELESCOPIC FORK
The 200 Duke's high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension has the same 43 mm outer tube diameter as the RC8 R – in other words, real racing equipment that guarantees highest levels of stability and precision.

WHEELS AND TYRES
Equally lightweight and delicate as they are stable, the 17 in cast light alloy wheels provide a 110 mm tyre width at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear. The tyres impress with tremendous grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as providing supreme durability.

INJECTION
The intricate engine design, state-of-the-art injection electronics and the close-ratio, six-speed transmission not only help the 200 Duke to achieve impressive performance, but also moderate fuel consumption. Thanks to the regulated catalytic converter, it produces only minimal emissions.

KTM Duke 200 is equipped with 200cc engine and capable of producing 25.51 horsepower at 10,000 rpm. and torque to 20 Nm at 8,000 rpm. Read also the KTM 125 Duke Specs ABS
