    @Abhishek2255 waiting for you to get yours tomorrow, I am sure you will love it.
    Did you face any issues like chain noise or other vibrations from the front fibre (which other user from Mumbai faces)?

    Can't comment on the chain noise, I mean I didn't notice anything peculiar.
    Maybe a little lube spray can help?

    Pardon my limited vocabulary, but, what is a front fibre?

    Hoping to get the bike on the 29th without any further hassles or delays.



    Congrats bro... Do post your first experience on your Duke.

    what was the secret number they have given you ... mine was KTM 16 in bangalore

    Anyone from chennai got the confirmation of date for delivery or someone got the bike itself..?? They are still not commenting anything on the date of delivery. I had seen 9 bikes standing there in showroom last Tuesday.

    Bajaj Auto Limited, the country’s second-largest two-wheeler maker, is all set to power its newly-launched Duke 200 – a naked style street fighter motorcycle from its Australian partner KTM’s stable – with the launch of KTM's Power Parts and Power Wear accessories and merchandise soon.
    “We will be launching Power Wear accessories like jackets, gloves, stickers and helmets in a month's time to start with, before introducing Power Parts (aluminium sprockets, high-grade plastics, superior alloys and other fittings) at our 32 KTM showrooms (earlier Bajaj Probiking),” Prakhar Muktibodh, area sales manager, KTM (south India), told mediapersons here on Monday.

    Delivering the first 15 Duke 200s to customers in Hyderabad, Muktibodh said the bike, priced at Rs 1.2 lakh (ex-showroom, Hyderabad), was positioned in the higher-cc bikes market where Yamaha R15 and Honda CBR 25R together sell 2,000 units per month in the country.

    Bajaj Auto, which holds close to 40 per cent stake in KTM through its Netherlands-based wholly-owned subsidiary Bajaj Auto International Holdings, is already exporting KTM bikes from its Chakan plant in Pune to Europe. It supplied around 11,000 units of Duke 125 cc in 2011.
    According to Amit Pawar, zonal manager, Bajaj Auto, KTM Duke 200 had so far seen 100 bookings in Andhra Pradesh and the number could be a little over 1,000 units from across the country.
    “The Bajaj-KTM partnership is focused on developing high-cc bikes. Next in line from the KTM series to hit the Indian roads will be the Duke 350 cc, 690 cc and 990 cc bikes,” Muktibodh said, while declining to give any definitive time lines or numbers.

    Good times ahead as KTM has confirmed Duke 350, 690, 990 as next in line bikes.

    I doubt this figure bigtime.
    and the question remains why do i race?
    every finishing line is the begining of a new race.

    #i have learnt to manipulate my own adrenaline and the perception of biking is different.
    #overkill is underrated.
    #how random roads may appear there is always a destination.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
    #i don't subscribe to co-incidence,either it is the rider or the other moron on the road

    (:)people keeps on saying add spark to life, bajaj got hold of that idea and added an extra spark to bike.
