The KTM Duke 200 done up in matte grey paint scheme has been converted into an off-roader with a plethora of customizations options that offer a completely new look.
While the KTM Duke 200 is a tarmac scorcher, an official off-roader based on the model is still a distant dream for now. However, Thailand based Kunka Custom Department was too tired of the waiting game and has put together its own iteration of the Duke 200 off-roader that was showcased at the Thailand International Expo 2014. Christened as the KTM Duke-T, the custom version gets done up in a matte grey paint scheme and has been completely transformed aesthetically while retaining its potent mechanicals intact.
Most noticeably, the fully customized KTM Duke-T gets alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli off-road tyres. The street-fighter gets a new faired headlamp cover flanked with circular turn indicators at the front and rear. The fuel tank gets done up in matte grey and the chassis in an all black paint job, while the handlebar is finished in brushed silver giving an overall stealth look. Compared to the stock version, the custom Duke 200 misses out on the engine cowl, front and rear mudguards, while the under belly exhaust has been replaced by a new high mounted exhaust. The absence of the underbelly exhaust has also increased the ground clearance, which will ensure improved off-roading performance on the custom Duke.
In terms of mechanicals and powertrain, Kunka has not disclosed if the 199.5cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected single-cylinder engine of the Duke 200 was tinkered with and it would be safe to assume that the engine is in its stock avatar producing 25 PS of power and 19.2 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed gearbox. Suspension duties are performed by WP telescopic front forks, while the rear gets a monoshock set-up. For those who think the Duke has become far too common on Indian roads, a similar customization option might just do wonders. Also check few other customised versions of the Duke from Kunka.
