KTM has launched its entire BS6 range of motorcycles in India. This includes the 390 Duke, 250 Duke, 200 Duke, 125 Duke, RC 390, RC 200, and RC 125. While the RC range receives just cosmetic updates, the 200 Duke receives the biggest upgrade here. Power outputs for all KTM bikes remain unchanged despite the switch to BS6. The price hike for the models ranges from Rs 3,328 to Rs 10,496. The new motorcycles are priced as follows:
You will be able to spot a completely new design language on the 200 Duke BS6. It gets a new split trellis frame and new bodywork similar to the larger 250 Duke and 390 Duke. A benefit of this is increased fuel tank capacity to 13.5 liters from the current 10.2 liters that KTM claims to extend range by 30 per cent. The 200 Duke misses out on the LED headlamp setup from the 390 Duke, so as to keep costs in check. Instead, it gets the conventional bulb-type unit from the 250 Duke. It now gets dual-channel ABS as well. The 200 Duke gets 2 new colour options: Electronic Orange and Ceramic White.
