Watch the First Exclusive Video of KTM Duke 200 Roaringgg, to be unveiled at 2012 Auto Expo

The motorcycling enthusiasts who have been craving for the affordable performance machines for the last decade or so, finally have been overjoyed as their prayers have been answered in the last one year. After Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Honda CBR 250R, now it is the time for the Austrian bike maker KTM to launch their mean machine Duke 200.

We fortunately got a chance to drive the mean machine in Pune during an ongoing event for dealers, a mechanical training campaign and for reader reviews at its Chakan Plant near Pune. We must tell you the bike sounds real roary and sounds like roaring of a Lion. Now only us, everybody who came back after driving the bike kept on raving about the way the 200cc DOHC motor revs in each and every gear. We wouldnot keep you waiting for so long, just hit the button below, watch the Video and we are sure you will hit the Like/Share button at the top.

It was also told to Team Wheel-O-Mania that the car would reach the dealers near you as early as next week, the statement of KTM-Bajaj team also gets support from the fact that the bike will be unveiled at 2012 Auto Expo. After ridintg the bike, we can surely say that once the accelerator of the bikes goes full on during Auto Expo, it would surely be a show stopper there. The bike would be priced approximately around Rs. 1.2 Lac.

According to reports, the rear suspension too comes from WP and is linked to the gorgeously crafted lightweight, high quality, die-cast swingarm. The brakes are from Brembo's sub-brand Bybre with a radial four-piston brake caliper biting on to a 300mm brake disc on the front, while a 230mm disc with a single caliper takes care of the stopping duties on the rear. The equally stylish lightweight cast alloy 17-inch wheels are shod with grippy high performance soft compound rubber supplied by MRF tyres, with the front wheel running a wide 110mm section while a meaty 150mm section serves the rear wheel. For improved handling, the weight is centralised with the exhaust unit too finding a place right under the engine.
