Chinese-owned American bike maker recently unveiled the Xtreet 250X on its website and its hard not to miss the Austrian bike maker's offering serving as a strong inspiration. While not being an exact copy of the KTM 200 Duke, the UM Xtreet 250X carries over several design elements from the former.


The UM Xtreet 250X measures 2080 mm in length, 750 mm in width and 1120 mm in height, and gets a 1370 mm wheelbase with a 140 mm ground clearance. The naked offering has a seat height of 820 mm, which is quite high, while the fuel tank capacity stands at 11 litres.


While UM's newest street-fighter may be identical to the KTM, the powertrain on both offerings is worlds apart. The UM Xtreet 250X employs a 223 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine tuned to produce 16 bhp at 6600 rpm and 19.6 Nm of peak torque at 5100 rpm. In contrast, the 200 Duke uses a 199.5 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor good for 24.5 bhp and 19.2 Nm of peak torque. The Xtreet 250X gets a 5-speed gearbox as opposed to a 6-speed unit on the 200 Duke. The said motor is likely to be the same engine that is used on UM's India line-up. The Xtreet 250X is also heavier with a dry weight of 140 kg, as opposed to the 200 Duke's 130 kg.
