Of its portfolio, it is the KTM 200 Duke which gets the biggest updates. 2020 KTM 200 Duke’s form draws inspiration from the 1290 Super Duke R. Upgrades include a lightweight split trellis frame, tank, headlamp and overall stance improvement, and the inclusion of dual-channel ABS and LED DRLs. The bike runs on an ultra compact, liquid cooled, DOHC, 4 valve engine, and benefits from advanced injection electronics, WP suspension and swingarm update. The package together makes for optimised riding fun and dynamic cornering.
