Ktm Duke 200 Review
Bike is good looking, great handling bike, because of its light weight easy to manure in traffic. - Performance: Good 25 bhp power output. Normally power output is more at high rpm's, when you reach high rpm's at lowers gears. Due to low gear ratio, bike tend to take little time to get max speed at 6th gear. but for a 200cc bike, power output is considerably great. - Handling: Great handling. MRF tires have good grip. Good for corners and normal speeds. - Braking: Brakes are good. ABS option could have been better. Tires tend to lock at high speed braking. MRF's work good while slow speed breaking. Brake calipers make sounds when dust accumulates. A good water spray on brakes can eliminate the sound sometimes.. - Comfort: Optimum as seat is more hard. But you will get adjusted to it over time. Pillion riders will not be happy with the rear seat. Ride quality is stiffer. Good for city and highway rides. Suspension: Rear mono-shock can be adjusted slightly. Front WP suspension works good. - Fuel capacity- Well tank is small compared to other bikes. only 11 lts capacity. With efficiency of 30-35kmpl. Good optimum efficiency. - Seat height: Good for people taller than 5.6ft. But I have seen people shorter also riding comfortably. - Bike is good overall. With optimum fuel efficiency. Just be noted at the time of hard breaking, due to lack of ABS, light weight and tires lock, controlling the bike might be a night mare sometimes. - Suspension should have been more efficient, not good for people who weigh more and ride as a pillion rider. Cooling system could have been more efficient, but over heating can be avoided by changing the gears at correct rpm's. Not revving the bike too high. - Also more appreciated if the plastic used of good quality.
Best Features: Sporty, gear indicator, temperature meter, distance to empty indicator, time.
Pros: Bike has great street look, light weight, good power band.
Cons: Poor finish with switches and plastic parts.
