KTM Duke 200 cc production

KTM has stated that Duke 200 cc will begin the production from March 2011 and the bike will be manufactured in Chakan plant of Bajaj Auto. However, KTM has no plans to launch the bike in Europe as well as Asia at the same time. So, Europeans will get the ‘Made in India’ Duke before us. KTM is also planning to launch a 350 cc Duke for European markets after the 125 cc.

KTM 200 Duke Spotted Near Pune

Bajaj was spotted testing the new KTM 200 Duke near Pune by one of the readers of Overdrive magazine.

KTM Duke 125cc or 200cc is just circulating like a tornado across the Internet for a very long time. Overdrive magazine reader Abhinay virkud has spotted a KTM Duke in Pune.

It is still unclear whether Indian market will receive the 125cc or 200cc, the more the displacement the better it will be positioned in India.

Words From Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, MD, Bajaj Autos

“Whatever product will be out in the market will be at a very significant premium as against brands like the Pulsar. Else, what is the use of bringing such a product?”.
