Come January, India will get one of the most exciting motorcycles it’s ever seen, and going by Bajaj’s history of competitive pricing, there is no reason to suspect otherwise with the Duke 200. While we don’t have a concrete figure yet, we expect a price tag between Rs 1.2-1.4 lakh. Even without knowing the price, there were many fellow journalists at the ride who are queueing up to pick up the bike. Proof enough that the Duke 200 is a great, fun motorcycle that adds another dimension to Indian motorcycling. And that’s reason enough to paint the town orange, I’d say.

this bike is packed with all the goodies what a rider wants, god bless if its priced below 1.3 L OTR, she will slap all the highly priced bikes with old design

This is certainly going to shake up the premium bike segment. What a looker and going by the review performance/handling seem to compliment the looks, if that's the case then there is no stopping this one. At last we got perfect anti-thesis to faired bikes.

If priced at 1.2 lakh, this KTM would be a mouth-watering prospect, which will seriously threaten the likes of Yam R15
