KTM Duke 200 to Get Updates in India; Official Launch in Early 2020

According to a recent report, KTM is all set to offer an update to one of its longest-running motorcycles, the KTM Duke 200. The street bike is expected to get an update in early 2020 while one can expect it to roll out in the initial months of next year. The debutant motorcycle from the brand was launched in the year 2012 and it received minor updates in the past years, limited to graphics only. Ever since the launch of the more-affordable KTM Duke 125, the Duke 200 has lost its charm when it comes to getting premium feature updates. Coming to the major or minor changes, there is not much information on what the brand will be offering though updating the styling bits inspired from the KTM Duke 250 and 390 would be one of the wisest choices. Apart from this, the recent reports also suggest the motorcycle to feature a more comfortable and cushioned seat, easy for riding longer distances while at the same time, the suspension setup is also expected to get more plusher to offer utmost comfort.
