The 2019 KTM Duke 200 to get design cues similar to the Duke 250 and 390.
KTM updated its Duke lineup in 2017 and there were a lot of surprises. First one was the unexpected launch of the Duke 250. Second one was the way the Duke 390 had evolved. The 2017 Duke 390 was a massive leap forward for KTM in terms of design and features. And third, there was the updated Duke 200, which is also the most affordable KTM of the lot. There weren’t any major changes made to the Duke 200 though save for its alloy wheels, which got an orange treatment, and some new graphics.
The Duke 200 was recently showcased at the Indonesia International Motor Show with a side mounted exhaust. The exhaust unit looks identical to the one seen on the Duke 250 and 390. For 2018, the India-spec motorcycle is also likely to get the side mounted exhaust. However, we’re already five months down to 2018 and there are no hints from the Austrian bike maker regarding the Duke 200 being equipped with a side mounted exhaust.
Nonetheless, we now have news that the 2019 Duke 200 will follow the footsteps of the Duke 250 and 390 in terms of design and styling. So, expect the Duke 200 to get the same headlamp with LED inserts and other bits from the Duke 250. Mechanically, the 2019 Duke 200 is likely to remain unchanged. It will continue to be powered by the same 199.5cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor that produces 25 HP of power and 19.2 Nm of torque.
