The KTM Duke series in India is known for its excellent performance, great features and styling that makes people turn heads. It became the first choice for young Indians who wanted a motorcycle that was aspirational as well as easy to maintain. With its class-leading performance and competitive price tag, the Duke series has managed to attract riders from all walks of life. Currently, KTM sells five motorcycles in the Duke Series – the 125 Duke, the 200 Duke, the 250 Duke, the 390 Duke and the 790 Duke.
The 125 Duke is the most affordable KTM one can buy in India. The bike sports the same sharp and aggressive styling as the bigger Dukes. This KTM is equipped with fully-digital instrument cluster, trellis frame and upside-down front forks. The braking system is sourced from Bybre and is assisted by single-channel ABS system.
The 200 Duke used to be the highest selling Duke in India, but it moved to the second spot after the Duke 125 was launched. Just like the other Dukes, the Duke 200 is also known for its class-leading power output, rich feature list and an attractive price point. This motorcycle gets its power from a single-cylinder liquid cooled engine. It rides on inverted forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, the braking hardware consists of a 300mm disc up front and a 230mm disc at the rear along with dual-channel ABS as standard.
The 250 Duke has been launched for Indian riders who want the styling of the Duke 390 but don’t have the budget. This Duke takes styling cues from the Duke 390 and a few parts like instrument cluster and mirrors from the Duke 200. The bike rides on the upside-down forks in the front and a monoshock at the rear. The braking department on this bike is being taken care of by a 300mm disc at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS is standard and switchable too.
The 390 Duke has been the best choice for riders who have been looking to purchase a bike that has great performance and cheaper to run too. The combination of 43bhp motor, excellent feature list and great riding dynamics make it an enticing purchase. Just like its fully-faired sibling, the Duke 390 is also equipped with top-class braking system which has integrated dual-channel ABS system.
The 790 Duke is KTM’s flagship offering for the Indian market. The street naked borrows the sharp styling and features from its elder sibling, the 1290 Super Duke which is sold by KTM in the international markets. Built around a steel trellis frame and aluminium sub-frame, the 790 Duke engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch and bi-directional quickshifter. The 790 Duke comes with an array of electric aids which includes lean-sensitive traction control, cornering ABS, launch and wheelie control along with riding modes that include a ‘Supermoto’ mode that turns off ABS at the rear wheel, allowing the rider to get the tail out while cornering.
