2017 KTM 390 Duke, 250 Duke, And 200 Duke Launch: Highlights View Photos

Following the arrival of the 2017 RC twins in the country, KTM India today launched the 2017 editions of the 390 Duke and the 200 Duke motorcycles and added the 250 Duke to the range in India. While the new 390 Duke and the new 200 Duke were always in the scheme of things, KTM India surprised us by launching the 250 Duke. With that being said, there is no doubt that the KTM Duke models have done exceedingly well in India and a model bridging the gap between the 200 Duke and the 390 Duke will only make the Duke family more accessible to the customers.
