The KTM Duke series provides some really great opportunity to customize it according to ones taste. The minimalistic brutal approach in design is capable of giving birth to innumerable variations in terms of panels redesign and other more technical detailing too.
Thus, no wonder when a talented group of customizers sit down to have their own take on the Duke's minimal design idea, things were going to get interesting, and this is exactly what the Kunka Custom Department has been able to do with a Duke 200. They have showcased one stunning customized Duke 200 at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2014.
The naked motorcycle has been transformed from a street fighter into an off-roader, thanks to the knobbies shod spoke wheels from Pirelli. The motorcycle is painted in matte grey with a black chassis and handlebar. Other differences compared to the stock bike include the absence of an engine cowl and underbelly exhaust which results in increased ground clearance for off-road activities. The underbelly exhaust is replaced by twin silencers, the Duke Custom features a new headlamp with shield-like fairing, circular turn indicators and a missing front mudguard.
The 199.5 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine has been retained but KTM has not revealed if there is any change in the performance figures. In stock condition, the motor generates 25 PS at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm of torque at 8,000 rpm when mated to a 6-speed transmission. The KTM Duke 200 by Kunka Custom is aimed at demonstrating that the naked motorcycle has an off-roading alter ego.
