While most Malaysian bikers know the 2017 KTM Duke 390 and Duke 250 well, KTM Malaysia doesn’t want you to forget the 2018 KTM Duke 200, still in the market at a price of RM11,888, with zero-rated GST. The current price for the smallest of KTM’s range in Malaysia also omits road tax, registration and insurance.

The Duke 200 was on display at the KTM Carnival in Johor Bharu and the most obvious change to the model are the new graphics. The main colour on the Duke 200 is white, and this is combined with black and orange graphics along with wheels painted orange.

As for braking, the Duke 200 uses a 300 mm single disc in front, clamped by a Bybre four-piston calliper with a single 230 mm disc in the rear with a Bybre single-piston calliper.
