Benelli’s new KTM Duke 200 rivalling TNT 200 was on display at the 2017 EICMA show – and here’s what we know so far about the little naked sportsbike (courtesy of our friends at RushLane.com).
The new entry level naked sportsbike from Benelli comes with a single cylinder 199.4 cc liquid cooled engine with 4 valves and DOHC setup. It’ll kick out 21.8 PS power at 9500rpm and 18Nm of torque at 7,000rpm.
It has a seat height of 780mm, a dry weight of 164kg, and a fuel tank capacity of 13 litres. It’s equipped with upside down forks at the front (with 120 mm travel) and preload adjustable monoshock at the rear (with 45 mm travel) – and its brakes come in the form of a 260 mm single disc at the front with 4 pistons caliper and a 240 mm disc at the rear with double piston caliper. It’s also comes with 17-inch aluminium alloys finished in matte black, a 110/80 tyre at the front, a 130/70 tyre at the rear, a digital instrument panel and a split seat too.
The TNT 200 sits among a wide range of new smaller capacity Benelli machines. The 200–250 cc segment is seeing huge demand in developing countries in particular – and we expect it to be particularly successful in India, which has seen the launch of many 200 cc naked sportsbikes, including the KTM Duke 200, Bajaj Pulsar NS 200, TVS Apache 200, Yamaha FZ25.
