The duke 150 might come with a 149cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine that should be able to produce 19 PS of maximum power and 15 Nm of peak torque. With this amount of power and torque, It should be able to achieve a top speed of 130 KMPH.

- Yamaha MT 15
- Yamaha R15 V3
- Suzuki Gixxer
If this 150cc duke is launched, it will compete with the R15 V3, MT 15 and Gixxer in the Indian market. Currently, the R15V3 and MT 15 leads the sales number ion the premium 150cc segment. If the Duke 150 is launched it will give a hard time to both of these bikes from Yamaha.
Possibility Of A New Duke
As you already know there is a duke 125 in the market and KTM has not planned any upcoming bikes in this segment as of now. One of the main reason is that the smallest duke is doing really good and also it is the best selling machine from the KTM lineup. So, as of now, there is no possibility of bringing the Duke 150 in the market.
Launch & Price In India
As of now, the Duke 150 doesn’t even exist or there are no plans to bring it anytime soon. The other 125cc ktm bikes are doing great in sales, So we don’t see this new duke coming to the market anytime soon.
If in the future, KTM tried to work on a new 150cc bike or replace the 125 with it, and it made its way to India then it could carry a price tag of around 1.45 Lakhs to 1.50 Lakhs INR. As this would carry some premium hardware it will have a higher price tag compared to the other 150cc bikes.
So, as we mentioned above there is no chance of this bike to be launched anytime soon. Also, the other 125cc KTM bikes are doing really good in the market, So KTM doesn’t have to think about any alternative right now.
Also, it would be hard to price this bike in India, as India is a price-sensitive market. The bottom line is that we might not see Duke 150 in the market soon. These we just expected specs and features based on the other KTM bikes.
