RaceDynamics Teases PowerTune ECU for KTM 200 Duke

| December 25, 2012 | 8 Comments

The KTM 200 Duke has been a hot favorite among the Indian biking aficionados. The 200 Duke, with its free revving motor and great agility, is a great recipe for hooliganism and excitement. The KTM 200 Duke has been responsible for giving an adrenaline rush to many bikers out there.

However, in case the KTM 200 Duke has failed to set you buzzing with excitement, there is an assortment of ‘after-market’ go-faster bits readily available to make the Katoom a real pocket rocket.

Among a host of various performance mods, the one that has really caught our attention is the upcoming PowerTune standalone ECU from RaceDyamics. The RaceDynamics ECU is in the final stages of development and the tuner has released a teaser showing the boost in performance that the PowerTune ECU would provide.

The PowerTune ECU equipped KTM Duke 200 is faster by 4 Kmph. Furthermore, the rev limiter has been moved up by 1,200rpm to 11,700rpm. All this hints at a significantly better top end and a quicker acceleration.

We are expecting the PowerTune ECU equipped KTM 200 Duke to have a top whack of more than 140kmph.

    yatharth : doesn't this mod. make any negative effect on engine… as the revv limit gets high with stock parts..?

    • Yea. More wear and tear in the long run. Especially if you rev it hard regularly. Most of the manufacturers tune their engines in such a way that they give an optimized blend of performance, fuel economy and reliability. Hence, a little change benefits in at least one area, on the same time compromising a little on others.

    Wont the 1200 rpms produce more power for higher top end? 4 kmph difference is not much.

    sucking more juice from the engine, what about overheat at the first stage.

    Rather buy 390 :D

  5. Wei says:

    It seems to make more horsepower, but from the graph, it’s all at the top end. I don’t know if this is done at the expense of sacrificing more low-end or mid-range torque.

    Any idea on the torque numbers? Thanks for the scoop Motoroids!
