KTM Duke 200 is one of the most popular street bikes out there and its power-to-weight ratio makes it one of the most fun bikes to ride around the city. Seeing its popularity, many customisers have taken an affinity towards the bike and Kunka Custom Department showcased a modified Duke 200 at the recently concluded Thailand Motor Show 2014.
The street fighter has been revamped into an off-road motorcycle and looks like an all new pocket-sized dynamite. It gets spoke wheels instead of the alloys and these come with knobbies from Pirelli. The bike gets itself a new paint job in the form of matte grey colour. The chasis and handlebar have been painted in black.
The engine cowl has been given a miss in this variant and the underbelly exhaust makes way for twin exhausts. What this has done is that it has increased the ground clearance to give the bike better off-roading abilities. It gets a new headlamp with a shield-like fairing and circular turn indicators in this guise. The front mudguard, however, seems to be missing in the show bike.
Everything else remained similar to the stock bike. The customised motorcycle came shod with a 199.5 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. KTM didn’t disclose if there was a difference in power figures of this one. It churns out 25 PS at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm of torque at 8,000 rpm in stock guise and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The purpose of showcasing the bike was the fact that it has off-roading abilities in its DNA and we may see them getting unleashed in the Adventure Series from KTM in future. As far as the concept is concerned, we don’t know if it will hit the production line as KTM hasn’t made any announcement about it as of now.
