Default 2013 KTM 200 Duke - Now with ABS on the 125 as well!

Source: http://www.ktm.com/in/naked-bike/200...ighlights.html

I went to KTM's website and guess what I found ? The page now says "KTM 200 DUKE ABS 2013: A POWERFUL APPEARANCE". I suppose since they need to mass produce ABS systems for the 390 Duke they've decided to upgrade the 200 Duke with ABS as well. Great news indeed

BTW, color option seems limited to Orange and White. Regular 200 Duke is available in Orange, Black and White.

@Mods: Seems like nobody has discussed this silent launch, hence decided to create a thread. If you think this information belongs in another thread, kindly move it there.

Oh.This is a good scoop.
Not even other blogs have found it, i guess. This seems great news for a guy like me, as I was thinking of booking one(haven't squared on Duke yet though) next month or January. How much increase in prices do you expect?

Its no scoop. Its the official KTM website itself

I'm surprised no blog noticed it. I just got lucky with googling I guess...

If its a fairly advanced ABS system, I suppose it should have an increase identical to that of Honda CBR 250R. Then the ABS model either may or may not come to India if they decide to bring the 390 Duke ONLY with ABS as an additional differentiator.

But, how did you find it? I mean, by clicking 'Highlights' tab, it doesn't give any info on 2013 Duke. I cant find it by normally surfing on the website.

Default KTM 125 Duke also will come with ABS

Update: Seems like even the international 125 Duke shall come with ABS from 2013 model onwards.

@Mods: Please help me edit the original thread post.

Here is a quote from above link:

The refined four-stroke single cylinder with fuel injection and six-speed transmission provides decent propulsion. And the low fuel consumption ensures a reasonable level of economy. Simply a genuine KTM – and setting new standards for 125s.
