Compared to the old KTM Duke 200, the BS6 Duke 200 felt a lot matured in the riding department. But as the new Duke 200 has picked up all the cycle parts from the KTM Duke 250 BS6 it has got similar dynamics too. The spilt-trellis frame has a different flex while the weight has increased by almost 10 kgs. The wheelbase is similar but once tipped into corners it is not easily flickable as before. The bike holds the line really well and the added feedback from the handlebars improves confidence. But the old Duke 200 had a fun yet scary nature while this one stays more in control. Recommended for solo rodes and short tours like Uttarakhand bike tour, Manali bike tour or Shimla bike tour.
