The KTM 200 Duke is equipped with a wide range of features which make it perfectly suited for off road riding. However, the bike’s main attribute is its extremely low weight which is rated at only 129.5 kg, without fuel.
The low weight is combined with a pretty agile 200 cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition engine which is mated on a six speed, claw shifted transmission. The unit is based on the single-cylinder four-stroke engine of the 125 Duke. For increased performances, the 2013 power unit features new camshafts, larger valves, a larger piston with a completely new crank drive, new airbox and a new exhaust layout. The end result is a maximum output of 25 hp and more than enough torque to keep the bike ahead of many of its competitors.
The motorcycle is kept in leash by a capable ABS from Bosch. To improve the stopping power, the 2013 KTM 200 Duke has received larger brake discs (increased from 280 to 300 mm diameter).
