Can I Update My Bike?

Bike India - - TECHNO MAIL -

I am writ­ing be­cause re­cently I came across the lat­est KTM 250 Duke. I liked the new de­sign and the in­stru­ment con­sole. I own a KTM 200 Duke, which doesn’t have the same de­sign. I wanted to know if I can change the frame, body work and the in­stru­ment con­sole to make my old 200 Duke look like a new bike. Please sug­gest the changes that I will have to make in order to update my bike. Raja Pil­lai, Chen­nai

The changes you wish to carry out on your bike are pos­si­ble, but it will be il­le­gal to do so. When you buy a mo­tor­cy­cle, the RTO reg­is­ters its stock spec­i­fi­ca­tion. Chang­ing any­thing that will al­ter it in any way from the orig­i­nal spec is not al­lowed. More­over, there is a very com­pli­cated process as to how you can change the ap­pear­ance of your mo­tor­cy­cle and then re-reg­is­ter it. Do­ing so with­out in­form­ing the con­cerned le­gal au­thor­i­ties is go­ing against the law. There­fore, we would not rec­om­mend the update that you have in mind.
