Actually I have become tired and confused about the availability of KTM Duke 200 in Malaysia. It has being launch twice in Malaysia. One by Prime Minister and the other one at MotoXpo KL 2012. Then, here is the news again, KTM Malaysia has announced the opening for booking of the most awaited KTM ever the DUKE 200 in their FB page. On one note, the are rumors saying that there are already thousands of booking of this bike, but I’m not sure whether that rumors can be true or not. The bike is definitely is good, we are just waiting for the final price to be irresistable.
Search ‘KTM Malaysia’ in FB and you’ll find more info about it.
Price is estimated at RM18-21k.
Mudah.my has shown an ads about KTM Duke 200 CKD (which mean it is assembled in Malaysia) has already available for booking. The price for the bike is at RM17,388 which is in line with what we are expecting earlier in the rumors (below RM18k).If the price here is the final price for the bike, it means it will fight very close with Honda CBR250R and Kawasaki Ninja 250R. I know here in Malaysia we have lots of KTM fans and this should be a happy news for them (or is it you?)!
UPDATE: After the booking, the bike will be in stock in May.
Made in Malaysia with many parts comes from Racing Boy. It is equipped with air-cooled 200cc engine and counterbalanced for smoother ride. This would be good for long distance riding since it will provide comfort to the rider.
There are some specs as stated in the FMH FB page below:
