Finally we have official confirmation on the specifications of the much awaited KTM Duke 200. Information on the KTM Duke 200 has been eluding us and all that we got from the popular blogs and spy men out to promote the KTM 200 are spy photographs that did its job of massive hype building. Taking nothing away from the KTM Duke 200, it is definitely a winner even before its launch. The more international Duke 125 already gave us a good idea of what to expect. Weighing in at just about 125kgs (dry) and producing 25bhp we just cant wait to get our hands on it for a review. Probably the only thing that is a probable turn off is the 10.5L tank, limiting the range quite a lot, But then it is a city/street bike and quite purpose built to meet those specifications too.
