KTM Duke Review

02 Jun, 2016 12:17 PM

Overview

KTM entered India with a totally different approach, the one which was never used here before. The street fighter segment has FZ as its leader in India, but due to its limited power, performers were most of the time low on energy. Then came the Duke series in India, empowered nearly everyone who lived for adventure and feed upon power. Rest was not a word for those and 1st was the only position desired.

KTM 390 Duke was the first member of the family to enter India and with its entry, scenario for the performance segment totally changed. The 373.2 cc was a beast and produced 43 BHP @ 9500 rpm with 35 NM @ 7250 rpm. The figures were pretty cool at the time of launch as no one provided the same figures for the offered price. Not just that, it became the first choice of stunt performers due to its light body design and very good handling capabilities. Soon it became popular and made its name in one of the best bikes in the country.

Then KTM launched 200 Duke, which is a perfect partner for the mileage obsessed Indian riders. The ones who were scared of the high cost of 390 and its lower fuel efficiency, opted straight away for 200 Duke. Like its elder, it was lightweight, quick and had the best response to throttle than any other 200 cc bike in the segment. It produced 24.6 BHP @ 10000 rpm and 19.2 NM @ 8000 rpm. It had a top speed of 135 kmph, with an impressive 136 kg body weight, all thanks to its lightweight engine frame, which was nearly 37 kg only.

KTM worldwide provides a smaller 125 cc Duke in selected countries and unfortunately India is not one of them. The smaller Duke produces 15 BHP and comes with the tagline 'Safe Power'. The same double disc structure comes in the younger Duke, making it a really safe deal. Also, 250 Duke was showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show. The Duke creates a balance between the powers of 390 and the economy of 200. The launch of 250 cc variant has been restricted to Japan only and no further news about the same has been heard.

KTM also provides some heavy duty machine on the Duke nameplate. These are the KTM Duke 690, KTM Duke 690R and the mighty KTM 1290 Super Duke R. These machines have been built with the purpose of victory as their 690 cc and 1301 cc motors are true performers of every terrain. The KTM 690 R gets a benefit of 3 more horses than the 690 and the Super Duke has a total of whooping 180 BHP. These 3 are expected to be launched in India very soon with a price tag between INR 5-15 lakh.
