KTM Duke 200 Review

We went out to test the KTM Duke 200 with 3 questions in mind:

1. What is it like to ride the Duke 200 on the road?

First of all – it looks great! From afar, it even looks like a big bike with its bold angled tank in striking coloured graphics, beautiful swingarm, prominent forks. But sitting in it with you feet flat on the ground, you feel in-control and when moving, it gives good power for a 200cc bike. Balanced and smooth when turning, easy to move through the gears overall giving precision control.

2. Our favourite features of the KTM Duke 200?

The ABS is an excellent safety feature for novice riders. The fork, the shock , the breaks are all very good quality too.

3. Just for fun, can we do a wheelie on it?

Yes we could, not the easiest, but also not overpowered.
