KTM 200 Duke ABS launched

KTM India today launched the ABS (anti-lock braking system) version of its entry-level bike, the KTM 200 Duke. Priced at ₹ 1.6 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the KTM 200 Duke ABS comes with newly introduced anti-lock brakes sourced from Bosch. The non-ABS variant of the KTM 200 Duke will also continue to be available for now, priced at ₹ 1.51 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The 200 Duke ABS just comes months before the mandatory ABS law is set to come into place that dictates all two-wheelers above the 125 cc displacements to come with ABS as a standard offering. The new law will be applicable from April 1, 2019, onwards.

Commenting on the introduction of the KTM 200 Duke ABS, Amit Nandi, President (Prebaking) at Bajaj Auto said, “With the addition of ABS our customers will now have choice of both ABS and non-ABS versions on the KTM 200 Duke.”

The KTM 200 Duke continues to come with the same 199.5 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which is now BS-IV compliant. There is no change in power output and the motor continues to make 24.6 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm of torque at 8000 rpm, while mated to a 6-speed gearbox. When KTM introduced the 2017 model year, the bike was 5 kg heavier. Although we are yet to get the confirmed figure, the addition of the ABS unit is likely to add a few additional kilos.
