KTM India has launched the 2023 200 Duke in the Indian market at ₹1.96 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) which is ₹3,155 more than the existing 200 Duke. The only change that the motorcycle gets is the new LED headlamp from the 390 Duke. It will be offered in two colour schemes - Electronic Orange and Metallic Silver. The 2023 200 Duke will go against the Bajaj Pulsar NS200, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Suzuki Gixxer 250.
The new headlamp means there is a new set of LED Daytime Running Lamps as well. This headlamp unit gets an array of 32 LEDs with 6 reflectors for the beam. The design of the headlamp unit is inspired by the headlamp on the 1290 Super Duke R.
