    Being a 125, there’s only so much power you can extract, and it lacks the outright frantic nature that KTMs are known for. The sixth gear is tall, but there’s just no power if you need to quickly accelerate, demanding a couple of downshifts to get the engine back into the powerband. At 60kmph in 6th gear, the tacho hovers just above the 5000rpm mark, while 100kmph arrives a bit over 8000rpm. It takes its own time to crack the ton as the powerband fizzles out post 90kmph. In our test, the motorcycle reached a top-speed of 106.54kmph - a little over 3kmph more than the Honda CB Shine SP, which is not saying much. If you’re expecting KTM level of performance, then you need to look elsewhere. You may consider it for long rides only if you like calm riding. The engine feels smooth both in the city and on the highway, and this makes for a fatigue-free ride. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.

    The KTM 200 Duke continues to use a halogen headlamp but now gets LED DRLs. It also has an LED tail lamp and LED turn indicators. The fully digital instrument console has been carried over and includes the speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, real-time mileage, average fuel consumption, and average speed. While the BS4 200 Duke had single-channel ABS, KTM has equipped the 200 Duke BS6 with dual-channel ABS. 200 Duke does not feature an air conditioner.
