Hi all Dukers, I need some help or inputs rather as im planning to buy the Duke 200. I am 1.8m tall and about 115kg. Will the Duke 200 suitable for me? Thanx.

 

Hey, I had a test ride on the 200 Duke over the weekend - going to buy one too. I'm 178cm, 82kg and the bike fit great. In all the many reviews I've read, the consensus seems to be that the height of the bike only becomes an issue if you're well over 6 feet. So at 180cm, height should be fine for you.

As for rider weight, the Duke has excellent power delivery - it just wants to go!

But you should go see the guys at Dirt Wheel - if you have a valid license, you can test the bike for yourself. The staff there are very friendly and helpful.

Hey all,

 

I'm about to purchase a new KTM 200 Duke. I was wondering what the general consensus was on running it in (break-in)? Stick to the manufacturer's instruction? Or ride hell-for-leather?

 

Check out this link, which recommends a hard break-in:

What did you guys do? What has been the result?

 

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hi. I'm Yan. Just got my duke 200 last 2 weeks. It's a great bike to be honest. Only thing is that the engine braking is rather harsh. It really will slow your bike down fast. The pick up is awesome too. And the handle is great to be honest. Maybe because I used to ride a sports bike last time. Any power parts to recommend. As in the ecu. I'm thinking of getting the sliders all. Anyone knows where to get it cheap. ?

How is the maintenance for duke200? And how is the FC like?

To ride on the road, You need skills,Stamina, or even luck.

 

But to be a good rider, you have to change with your environment,and adjust yourself to its rhythm.

 

Cultivate the confidence to face the different situations. Don't let yourself to be subdued by the environment :thumb:

Maintenance is fuss free, just make sure when you buy the bike it's not a lemon ;)

FC i get 35-40km/l. It runs a bit hot but that's the profile of the engine. Excellent for city traffic here with it's flickablity and pickups.

 

Sounds like a good bike. Are you selling? :lovestruck:

agreed with engine braking...thats why gotta be careful in downshifts...its not the most forgiving bike for a newbie.

really fun in traffic though.

 

its really short geared..and sometimes i just shift from neutral to second in to get out of traffic and still picks up very fast.

Hey all. Considering buying a 4-year old Duke 200 from a colleague/friend. Price should be about $9000 to $9500.

 

Posted in the Bikes and Bytes section but I thought maybe here would get a better response. Bike seems to be a great deal and looks fantastic. Somebody mentioned above that the maintenance is fuss-free. Just wondering if something breaks down, are the parts expensive? That's the only thing that could be stopping me from getting the bike.

- There are riders riding sportbikes with low handle bars, complain of sore palms from leaning on the grips for so long. With Grab On Grip covers, these problems will be a thing of the past !!!

 

- Grab On Grip covers allow you to ride in more comfort, especially on those long rides. PERFECT for the daily commuter, tour rider, and sport riders alike.

 

Features

---------

 

- Slip over existing grips for greater comfort, or to renew worn grips.

- Work with heated or standard grips.

- Save $$$, no need change the whole heater grip system which is very costly.

- Shock absorbing EPDM foam for a smoother ride.

Great for city riding where there's lots of traffic light, your hand will be tired during the on going "stop go" situation, this product will help to ease the stress on palm n wrist. Highly recommended for despatch/delivery riders.

 

"Once you try it, you'll LOVE it"

 

NOTE : Lot of customers been asking what's the difference between Grab On Grip with another brand that's selling @ $30-$35.

 

Ans :

- 1st of all, Grab on Grip is Made in USA while the other grip is Made in UK. So the difference in currencies. USD vs Pound Sterling

- Difference in QUALITY. No doubt both are EPDM Foam but customers that have used Grab On Grip and have tried the "other brand", eventually came back to use Grab On Grip. Customers claimed that the "other brand" became smelly after using it for awhile and it tends to slip to the balancer causing the throttle to "stuck" which is VERY DANGEROUS. They have never face this problem when using Grab On Grip. Well, expensive things doesn't mean its good.

 

- Some customers asked how come mine is "cheaper" than the rest ?

 

Ans : There's no need for me to claim i'm the "dealer/distributor" when the product i sell is 100% Genuine Made in USA.. As a biker, I wanted to share my great experience of using this product for more than 5 years at an affordable price.
