KTM 200 DUKE 2016
A POWERFUL APPEARANCE
It rides even faster than it looks. The KTM 200 Duke is the only 200cc naked bike with real racing genes. High-tech components, such as the ultra-compact, water-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine developing 19 kW (26 hp), the compact three-chamber silencer, the ultralight tubular space frame, the state-of-the-art injection electronics, the 43 mm upside-down fork from WP Suspension and the elegant swingarm all combine to ensure maximum riding fun, powerful drive and dynamic cornering. The Duke is unbeatable with its sensational power-to-weight ratio coming from an ultra low dry weight of 129.5 kg.
DYNAMIC CORNERING FUN
Riding fast means you also need brakes to match. With a 4-pot radially mounted calliper biting on the generously proportioned 300mm diameter front disc, safe, precise and powerful braking is right there when you need it.
19 kW (26 hp) of power and a dry weight of only 129.5 kg guarantee fast-paced riding fun with the new 200 Duke. The first-class chassis, with lightweight still trellis frame in the proven KTM design, turns it into a real carver through the bends. Weight grouped close to the centre of gravity maximises manoeuvrability and precision.
The 200 Duke's high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension has the same 43 mm outer tube diameter as the RC8 R – in other words: real racing equipment that guarantees highest levels of stability and precision.
WHEELS AND TYRES
Equally lightweight and finely crafted as they are robust, the 200 Duke’s 17 inch cast light alloy wheels carry a 110 mm tire at the front and an impressive 150 mm at the rear. The tires combine tremendous grip in both wet and dry conditions, as well as providing supreme durability.
The KTM 200 Duke's lightweight, high-quality, pin-jointed swingarm is designed and produced according to the same principle as that on the 690 Duke. The light alloy swingarm with directly-linked WP shock absorber excels with extreme torsional stiffness and outstanding tracking stability.
The intricate engine design, state-of-the-art injection electronics and the close-ratio, six-speed transmission not only help the 200 Duke to achieve impressive performance, but also moderate fuel consumption. Thanks to the regulated catalytic converter, it produces only minimal emissions.
The shapely 11-litre fuel tank on the 200 Duke not only provides the rider with perfect knee contact, but also with a range of more than 300 kilometres, even when ridden hard, thanks to the economical engine.
EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL
The 200 Duke is also a genuine motorcycle in terms of dimensions, providing plenty of space and freedom of movement. The compact riding position supports relaxed touring as well as committed cornering. Large contact surfaces ensure optimum control and perfect feedback.
The 2016 200 Duke has everything that distinguishes a true KTM: from the high-quality chassis components to the multi-function cockpit, which even keeps you up to date with fuel consumption and remaining range. The extensive KTM PowerParts range gives you the option of adding your own individual style.
LIVELY, SMOOTH-RUNNING FOUR-STROKE
The state-of-the-art, liquid-cooled, DOHC single cylinder, with four valves and electronic fuel injection, delivers its 19 kW (26hp) peak power effortlessly. Thanks to its balancer shaft, the engine is characterised by the highest levels of smoothness, even at low revs.
Just as on the RC8 R, the four valves in the KTM 200 Duke’s cylinder head are actuated by twin overhead camshafts and cam followers. This design is not only extremely reliable but, thanks to the ultra-hard, low friction carbon coating of the cam followers, power output is maximised too.
The compact, three-chamber silencer is positioned close to the machine's overall centre of gravity. This aids centralisation of masses and further improves the easy handling of the KTM 200 Duke. Thanks to a regulated catalytic converter, the emissions are exemplary.
