August 17, 2020

Thanks to an ultra-compact single-cylinder 4-stroke power plant with state-of-the-art injection electronics and close-ratio, 6-speed transmission, the new KTM 200 DUKE packs a mighty punch. The generously sized, ergonomic 3.5-gal. fuel tank feeds the highly efficient engine and provides exceptionally long range. A predatory design and lightweight tubular steel trellis frame proudly display its BEAST-inspired DNA and shout DUKE.

The KTM 200 DUKE delivers the perfect balance of performance and everyday rideability. Its superb ergonomics provide riders with maximum freedom of movement. The upright riding position supports relaxed rides and encourages committed cornering. Large contact surfaces ensure maximum control and optimal feedback, while retaining riding comfort. Confidence-inspiring handling is managed by WP APEX 43 mm USD forks and an APEX Linkless rear shock. Braking duties are easily covered by the 4-piston radially-mounted BYBRE front brake caliper featuring Bosch 2-Channel ABS, as well as Supermoto ABS functionality. Impressively low weight and a massively appealing low seat-height of just 31.6 in. eliminate the intimidation factor and make the KTM 200 DUKE as easy to handle as it is exhilarating to ride.
