    As you stated that you are a bike lover and you love racing bikes, it is but obvious to try the new model of bajaj. And with the release of this bikes, it will seriously affect other companies like the Yamaha and the hero motors.

    To my consideration as its expecting price varies around 1. 30 lacs, I think that it will be having tough competition with the r15, karizma ZMR and the CBR 250 R. but if we consider the other specifications you will be able to make a decision accordingly. So I would like to ask for whether you are bothered for speed or other backgrounds.

    Yes, I am more concerned with the speed , but as I live n city there is no way that I will be able to ride it always with speed, so just wanted to know whether the bike will serve utmost performance on Indian roads or not. Also if you provide me with specifications regarding the engine and comfort , I will find it easy to understand your views.

    To tell about the KTM duke, it will prove to be a full fairer bike which looks incredible, but may tend to prove a bit problem for riders who are light weight , and who are short . so that is not the case in r15 as most Indians those who are having light weight in addition with those who are short will tend to choose R15. And according to the sources it is a Street fighter variant which are light and nimble in handling.

    I have my R15 bike and I do was having confusion between the karizma ZMR, but as ZMR is a bit higher , I made a choice for R15. And I am enjoying this bike. I donít suppose that the guys with short height will be more able to get to the handling. But I will not say that it will be impossible for them, so it depends on the riding.

    Oh, I loved the look of this bike and I suppose that I will definitely make a buy . as I found from some sources that the KTM duke has the same power when compared to the CBR 250 R when the cc being 250 for CBR and 200 for KTM.as you said that you are interested in Yamaha, I would say that this bike will emit more power than that of the Yamaha.

    Hello guys,, as some few of the sources have ridden this bike , I will say that according to them , it is one of the most fun-to-ride and powerful machine that will be hard to catch even for the Honda CBR250R in performance in addition if priced properly by Bajaj Auto India, then it will also occupy Indian racers and bikers. Once launched, the KTM 200 Duke will positively be one of the mainly thrilling release of 2012 with its fundamental approach praised by an uniformly proficient short-stroke 200cc liquid-cooled fuel injected single cylinder motor which is available in a six-speed transmission.

    I have some more information relating to the comparison between this two bikes. So as to compare the speed the KTM acquires acceleration of 9 seconds for 0 Ė 100 kmph and that for Yamaha, it is 11.5. so you can make a choice for this bike. In addition to this , the top speed of Yamaha r15 is 130 and that of the bajaj is 136.

    So with regards to the cost , I suppose that if this bike ahs more specifications than that of the Yamaha R15, it will be definitely costlier. But if you are going for a high speed machine, then you can definitely make a choice for this . so I would consider that Yamaha r15 will prove definitely good in case of 150 cc as it has more power compared to any other 150 cc bike, but here in the segment of 200 cc , the KTM duke will definitely win the race over Yamaha R15.
