The KTM Duke 200 is the first product of the alliance between Bajaj Auto the Austrian off-road experts. The bike is powered by a 25bhp fuel-injected 200cc single-cylinder engine, mated to a short-ratio six-speed gearbox that helps it accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in under ten seconds. The Duke 200 is designed such that all heavy components, such as the exhaust and the engine are tightly packaged and placed in the center of the bike, so as to help in mass-centralization and lowering center of gravity. Combined with the wide handlebar and lightweight construction, it makes the bike very nimble to ride in traffic.
