Nice pics, but our lens guy LP would have had even better.. I am guessing that the ktm wins here though..

Motorbeam will be putting up the article around 5ish.

This one is for LP: I shifted above 10k rpm in all gears on the Orange...not once did the wheel pop up ;)

Really nice comparo.. But if you ask me it is missing the p200.. One can also have cbr150 and zmr..
With these included i guess it will head towards the p200 owing to its price..
it would end up something like P200->duke200->cbr250->r15->zmr->cbr150..

ZMR is nowhere in this league at all, apart from being fully faired, unlike the 200NS which promises to be real VFM, and a deserving entrant to this club. The CBR250 with pillion, can open distance rapidly against the ZMR, any speed, and the antiquated engine, chassis and suspension design belong to another era.

At 10k, it would be breathless, if you pull the throttle it little more, it will refuse to go further :P

P200 definitely wins over one thing, for sure :P , Bigger Tank :first:

Breathless...and I thought the Duke made max power at 10,000 rpm ;)

It will also win in the "kitna deti hai " factor + lower pricing..
