Available in Malaysia, you can now fit this standard parts for India’s KTM Duke radiator guard. The material is made from plastic but by the way it looks, it is thick enough and can withstand the weather elements. The price is also affordable at less than RM80. For me, this is a better radiator guard as compared to the ones made by aluminium or even steel since this one doesn’t restrict airflow and the ducts are angled for better air to go through it.

KTM Malaysia CKD introduced this popular 200c bike in Malaysia with lower price range at RM15,888. The KTM 200 Duke Non ABS as it is named will be more accessible to new rider who are upgrading from their moped to entry-level naked bike. This should a great price considering the 200 Duke can gives out 25hp with a weight of just 129.5kg. That will gives greater power-to-weight ratio compared to other bikes in the same category. It is only 7hp less than the Z250 at 32hp, but that weighs about 168kg.
The brakes are still 300mm for the front with 4-piston caliper and 230mm 1-piston caliper for the rear. The thing that is missing is the ABS. Without the ABS, this means that you can have total control of the bikes braking but you’ll need to learn the threshold braking and cadence braking if you want to take your bike to the limit.

2012 was a really stunning year for Rok Bagoros – a factory KTM stunt rider on KTM Duke 125/200 and Duke 690. All came gradually together in last couple of months when heat raised and started the ‘Rok on’ tour in South America and completed the stunt-full season on EICMA motor show in Milan – Italy. The intensity was brutal as he performed in Mexico, Ecuador, Chile, Guatemala, Peru, Slovenia, Malaysia, Germany and finally in Italy. Ten weeks, nine countries and three continents!
While on tour, he had a chance to meet his fans all over the world and that was as he stated just surreal! Here it is how he put few impressions together: ‘To see all this people yelling my name and cheering, asking for autographs, for a photo with me, that just gave me incredible boost and motivation to train even harder and longer. Sometimes I train and hone my stunt-riding skills late in to the night, in hot or freezing cold weather, and even when there is around me all covered in snow. I don’t mind the elements! I just want to follow that ultimate goal to become the best stun rider in the world. Sometimes I think I’m in a dream, but than I realize that this is all real – cool!’
If Rok was not more than a year ago, just a kid on a Duke 125, he is now well recognizable also on big KTM Duke 690 where he is rapidly honing his aggressive but fluid riding style. ‘I want to bring people around me the feeling they are at the rock concert and not just a stunt show, full of adrenaline and emotions’ added young rebel stunt rider.
