I'm seeing contradicting information all over the forum. Is KTM going to be 125cc or 200cc?

With the reviews that have come out, it seems definite that KTM 200 is coming soon , However, I am not too sure abt the 125

The Kanjurmarg Probiking outlet in Mumbai says Monday 23rd Jan.

Assuming the price to be in the vicinity of 1.5 lacs on road. Delivery by Feb 2nd week onwards.

I hope this bike doesn't suffer the wet condition radiator leaks that plague the Duke 125 in the export market.

The launch is around 24th. Okay! Does that mean booking open the same day as well?

Tell us more about the wet condition radiator leaks - got any links etc? Just hope (a la CBR250) - the initial lot is not plagued with niggles.

The Jan 2012 Overdrive edition confirms KTM Duke to be a 200. Surprising that Bajaj took two year after the initial SCOOP pic to finally get this out.

Where did you guys pick up the speculation of 125?? It's always been 200! Only initially when this thread opened, it was speculated as 125 caught testing!

You can refer to this fanpage for the KTM 125 & read up on all issues faced by owners: KTM Duke 125 | Facebook

I'm hoping that learnings have been incorporated into the 200 based on the feedback given.

You can check here - Ready to Race KTM
It has all KTM Bikes listed, all have status as "Not Available in India" except for "200 Duke" under the Naked Bike Tab/Category which says "Coming soon to India".

And also the fuel spec says 95ron. May be its running a high compression engine. I will still wait for daily usage feed back.

Few pics of the new KTM -Bajaj -Kawasaki (sidelined IMO) showrooms. Bajaj seems to be trying their best to make KTM a success. Judging by their efforts, and past record, I expect killer pricing for the 200 Duke.

Thumbs up Mods - Requesting you to please change the thread name, KTM 200 to be launched soon

Adding to the already changing scene at Bajaj Pro-biking the Hyderabad showroom is getting ready with KTM branding, all the old sign boards are replaced. I guess the day is not too far away for the KTM launch. I only wish it was both Kawasaki and KTM. But what the hell...

Confirmed from 'Vinfred' another member that the mechanic at the Pro-biking has already been for the training. And according to him, launch is on 28th. Waiting eagerly.
