My local dealer is now showing inventory on the KTM Duke 200 at $3995.

The EPA database lists power at 18 Kilowatts. That's 24 horsepower in old money.

Here's a stock pic. Vroom! Vroom!

Interesting. I'm surprised that KTM will sell such a small displacement Duke here.
-I will be searching youtube for a shootout with the Lifan KP200M.

Not a road test, but a side by side spec comparison at the link.
The extra 7 hp and 2000 rpm sound worth the extra $1300. for the Duke.
The Duke has almost 1/3 more hp than the Lifan.

KTMs are cool, but I would prefer the classic styling and thumper torque of the G400C over the little Duke.

Here is a first ride article on the Duke 200 at the link.
