Rok’n roll in the UK

Spending the most of his free time in his van during this year, travelling from one show to another allover the Europe, Rok Bagoros is really starting to enjoy  living his dream, as a professional stunt rider. He recently hit the shores  of England for the first time, with clear purpose to entertain the masses at the famous NASS music and extreme sports festival.

Using the new KTM 125 Duke street bike, Rok put on a number of high-octane performances throughout the weekend and turned out to be the real crowd pleaser.

Rok is performing  his tricks on almost standard 125 Duke. The only diference between standard bike and his stunting machine is in details as wheelie bar, pegs and controls. Check out the movie where you can relive the atmosphere of adrenaline pumping weekend.

Stay tuned for new upcoming video reports from all over Europe.

KTM Duke 200 Malaysia Launch

KTM Duke 125 and 200 are most awaited by many Malaysian riders here. This time we just might get to see KTM Duke 200 launched tomorrow (26/08/2011) afternoon.

I’m also waiting for the launch of this bike and I really eager to know about the pricing. Rumors said it is priced below RM20k. It means this can compete with Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Honda CBR250R.

UPDATE: It is CKD version. Price is estimated from RM15k – 18k. Very affordable for a continental bike.

UPDATE II: It is going to be launch by our PM tomorrow, but sales only start early next year (2012). Now, there are only 3 unit of concept bike in Malaysia. 2 more picture added after the jump

UPDATE III: It is launched earlier today by our Prime Minister. The bike will be assembled by KTM Motonation factory here in Malaysia. The sale of the bike will start early 2012. KTM Duke 200 is the variation of KTM Duke 125 which is marketed specifically for Asian countries. The European will get the KTM Duke 125 only. Hurray for Malaysia!

UPDATE IV: I forgot to tell you that the lauching has been shown on Buletin Utama TV3 last night (26/8/2011). I also got the video of the launching, but for this few days I actually updating using my phone, so, I can’t access to the video yet. Maybe tomorrow you’ll get to see the launching video.
