A masculine full of strength bike with a big modern graphically designed body huge tank bright illuminated headlight and short sporty mudguard and a sports bike with ample space for the rider that is KTM DUKE 200.
The 200 Duke has a sporty riding position, with the rider footrests located far behind. The new KTM uses impressive chassis parts; a steel fabricated trellis frame, with fat upside-down front forks. Behind, you sit on a linkage free monoshock and there’s even an alloy swingarm. The treats don’t end here, with ByBre disc brakes at both ends fed by steel braided hydraulic lines. The brakes are supremely powerful front and rear, with the front feeling perfect, but rear often misbehaving with over enthusiasm.A problem is that the height adjustable brake pedal feeling uncomfortably long, making it tricky and unnatural to operate even for people with feet as big as size 12.
