|The state-of-the-art, liquid-cooled, DOHC single cylinder, with four valves and electronic fuel injection, delivers its 19 kW (26hp) peak power effortlessly. Thanks to its balancer shaft, the engine is characterised by the highest levels of smoothness, even at low revs.
||Just as on the RC8 R, the four valves in the KTM 200 Duke’s cylinder head are actuated by twin overhead camshafts and cam followers. This design is not only extremely reliable but, thanks to the ultra-hard, low friction carbon coating of the cam followers, power output is maximised too.
||The compact, three-chamber silencer is positioned close to the machine's overall centre of gravity. This aids centralisation of masses and further improves the easy handling of the KTM 200 Duke. Thanks to a regulated catalytic converter, the emissions are exemplary.
||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.
||The shapely 11-litre fuel tank on the 200 Duke not only provides the rider with perfect knee contact, but also with a range of more than 300 kilometres, even when ridden hard, thanks to the economical engine.
|Riding fast means you also need brakes to match. With a 4-pot radially mounted calliper biting on the generously proportioned 300mm diameter front disc, safe, precise and powerful braking is right there when you need it.
||19 kW (26 hp) of power and a dry weight of only 129.5 kg guarantee fast-paced riding fun with the new 200 Duke. The first-class chassis, with lightweight still trellis frame in the proven KTM design, turns it into a real carver through the bends. Weight grouped close to the centre of gravity maximises manoeuvrability and precision.
||Equally lightweight and finely crafted as they are robust, the 200 Duke’s 17 inch cast light alloy wheels carry a 110 mm tire at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear. The tires combine tremendous grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as providing supreme durability.
||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. The KTM 200 Duke's lightweight, high-quality, pin-jointed swingarm is designed and produced according to the same principle as that on the 690 Duke. The light alloy swingarm with directly-linked WP shock absorber excels with extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability.
||The 200 Duke is also a genuine motorcycle in terms of dimensions, providing plenty of space and freedom of movement. The compact riding position supports relaxed touring as well as committed cornering. Large contact surfaces ensure optimum control and perfect feedback. For all its sports appearance, the two-piece seat provides surprising long-distance comfort, perfect support and first-class ergonomics for both rider and pillion. At 800 mm the seat height is low enough for a secure standing position, but also tall enough for sports-oriented riding and delivering that genuine big-bike feel.
