The 2012 KTM 200 Duke comes with a newly developed 1-cylinder, 4-stroke DOHC engine, electronic fuel injection, 3-way catalytic converter, balancer shaft, 6-speed gearbox, max. output: 19 kW/26 PS, emissions: Euro 3.
The main difference is a larger displacement, expanded to 199.5 cc by a new cylinder with a 72 mm bore and 49 mm stroke. Complementing these are a newly developed cylinder head and valves, as well as new intake and exhaust systems specially designed by KTM for the 200. These developments increase power to a strapping 19 KW (26 hp) besides giving it a beautifully rounded power curve, highlighting once more the sporting DNA of this state-of-the-art single cylinder design. While the 125 Duke offers an excellent performance for its class, the 200 Duke has the punch of a real motorbike, not the least due to its very low weight of only 127 kg. The powerful new engine is backed by the well-known trellis frame, as well as outstanding suspension and braking components. This makes the 200 Duke essentially KTM – simply one of the best small sport bikes for any day of the week.
A Duke loves company. Less than a year after the introduction of the 125 Duke, KTM expands the segment with an equally attractive 200cc version rated at 19 kW (26 hp) of power.
