Q. Which is better Duke 250 & Ktm rc 200?
  • The RC 200 has set the bar quite high for the entry-level sports bike segment. The committed ergonomics might not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you are looking for cornering dynamics with an added dose of power but are on a budget, your search ends here. Whereas, KTM 200 Duke has been the benchmark bike of its segment and still remains so. If you’re looking for a bike that offers great acceleration, loves to corner and has a hooligan nature, the 200 Duke is the bike for you and a great option for someone entering the world of performance bikes. The only grouse we have with the KTM 200 Duke is its super stiff ride quality and the fact that ABS isn’t offered even as an option.
  • Bro the answer to your question is two foldIf you want superb style with committed race ergonomics go for the rc but remember that a pillion on the rc is not too comfortable so if like me u take girls or as in my case a girlfriend on your bike daily the duke 250 is perfect for you as it has both an awesome design as well as comfortable ergonomics which girls do not complain a lot about .So long story short if u have an girlfriend go for the duke 250 trust me u will thank me later or if you are into racing and supermoto style definitely go for the rc 200 also the cooling is far better on the duke 250than on the rc 200 Good luck with your bike ride safe and wear a helmet
  • Ever since its debut, the KTM 200 Duke has been the benchmark bike of its segment and still remains so. If you’re looking for a bike that offers great acceleration, loves to corner and has a hooligan nature, the 200 Duke is the bike for you and a great option for someone entering the world of performance bikes. The only grouse we have with the KTM 200 Duke is its super stiff ride quality and the fact that ABS isn’t offered even as an option. On the other hand, the 2017 KTM 250 Duke is for someone who finds the new 390 Duke too expensive. It gets modern styling, powerful motor and top-spec cycle parts but the lack of ABS even as an option is disappointing.

Q. Which is better between Duke 250 and 390?
  • The 250 Duke sits in a comfortable spot in the KTM India lineup. Pricewise the 200 Duke retails at Rs 1.49 (ex-showroom, Delhi) while the 390 Duke costs Rs 2.39 lakh. The 250 Duke, at Rs 1.78 lakh, cost just 29,000 more than the 200 Duke. So if you can stretch your budget by that much, the 250 Duke is the way to go. The 390 Duke meanwhile, sits in a different segment altogether with its higher price difference, more power and features. The KTM 390 Duke has always come across as a value for money product and the new variant takes the VFM quotient a notch up as it looks a lot more irresistible now. It gets an LED headlight unit and colour display that we like a lot and also handles beautifully with its aptly tuned suspension setup. Also, while it may not be as quick as the earlier 390, it certainly is a lot more refined. The 390 Duke is a wild beast and is meant for a lot more experienced riders and thrill seekers. The 250 Duke trades the KTM's rortiness for refinement, and we think, is all the better for it. It makes a compelling prospect if you are looking for a premium, comfortable and dynamic runaround on a budget under Rs two lakh. When it comes to the best you can buy in this price range, the KTM 250 Duke is there at the very top.
  • When it comes to daily commute facing the real traffic on a daily basis - Duke 250 has only 1 advantage which is shorter handlebar which makes it easier to do cutting and riding zig zag leaving behind others and easily overtaking fellow riders/drivers. Advantage which Duke 390 has is basically dual channel abs which helps you a lot in emergency braking conditions and is much safer option.. on top of it... It is more powerpacked.. It has enhanced TFT display and Bluetooth connectivity which gives you an ease of changing songs, increasing & decreasing volume.. receiving and declining calls from the handlebar itself.. in city traffic its slow moving traffic and its a big hassle to frequently operate your phone wether you have to receive calls.. disconnect existing call or even decline the call... With the help of TFT display you get to know who is calling... wether or not to receive call and you can do all sorts of stuff from the handlebar itself without removing your hands off from the throttle, clutch or brakes. But the only disadvantage is a broad handlebar... RC390 and other bikes have a really short handlebar which helps them to just overtake from a narrow path between two vehicles whereas Duke390 might fail to do so...
  • If you need to ride on highways for longer distance with more power then you can go for KTM Duke 390 whereas if you needed to ride the motorcycle more in the city traffic and needed a good mileage then suggest you can go for KTM Duke 200.
