Q. Is Duke 250 ABS worth buying? I heard there were issue with air intake and pick up of the bike and there were other issues with engine sound too. Many suggest to go for a Duke 200 or 390 than 250. I am confused. I can't afford 390. My purpose is for daily commute.
  • I own a D250 and is a very easy maintain m/cy. So far has not faced issues with air intake, unusual sounds from engine or pick-up. Could be a specific issue with someone not maintaining the vehicle properly.

Q. Which is best for ladakh Duke 250, Dminar 400 or Himalayan?
  • Among the available options, we would suggest you to go with the Royal Enfield Himalayan as the bike offers spot on ergonomics for touring, brilliant off-roading credentials, and a higher ground clearance for tackling the uneven road. Moreover, Royal Enfield has ironed out the majority of the issues that plagued the first-gen motorcycle and the bike outshine the rivals as an all-rounder. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read More: - Bajaj Dominar 400 vs Royal Enfield Himalayan - [Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review@https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/royal-enfield-himalayan-bs6-road-test-review/37680/
  • https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/royal-enfield-himalayan-bs6-road-test-review/37680/" data-repliedtouser="Zigwheels" > I would say ,there is no point in comparing between a 250 cc with a 400 or 500 cc bike , for a ladakh trip ,where the roads arent just tarmac ,you will experience all kinds of terrains , KTM has bravely launched the 390 adventure to go anywhere ,on any type of roads . And yes bajaj 400 has proved itself by finishing a polar Oddessy ride from artic to Antartic .As well as from Banglore to Sydney .whereas i havent seen a royal enfield himalayan doing this .i prefer 390 adventure for ladakh than a 250cc duke .But a point to be noted here is 250 dukes have successfully finished a ladakh ride by many of the owners of the same .
  • https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/royal-enfield-himalayan-bs6-road-test-review/37680/" data-repliedtouser="Zigwheels" > I would put the Himalayan as the first choice, as it is the bike made for the purpose. However if the choice is between the other two then definitely the Choice would be dominar.... This bike has proven its mantle as many a riders have done bigger rides with this bike.

  • Overall performance is good in a 250cc single cylinder motor. cranked at a speed of 151 with pillion. Touring a 900km stretch with pillion, reached in 19hours continues drive. only maintained the chain lubricant once in that trip. pillion comfort is not good for fat persons either its 250 or 390, the overall pillion comfort is average. mileage is great lowest mileage when i fully throttle it gives me 28 average i get 33,34 and more mileage i get when i ride smoothly on highways gets around 40+ Anyway, i'm satisfied with the bike

  • this bike is a bang for your buck!!I chose this bike over the 200 Duke because I wanted more power.I thought Im unnecessarily spend extra but now that I own it definitely worth it...more so than Duke 200 also. I've rode for 500kms now and its simply the best 250cc I've rode. If you want lesser power the Duke 200 is always an option but the power delivery on this one feels like 400cc. around the city so far I've got on average 23kmpl and highway gave me 36kmpl.

  • Great bike with good power and mileage. The heating of the bike is very less when compared to bs4 duke 250. While touring the seat is bit stiff it cause a small discomfort other that no other problem is there it's just perfect for a person who want power and mileage .

  • Actually my bike is still new though I am receiving a mileage around 30kmpl. Hope it will improve after one or two service. Although I am really interested with this mileage as I am always driving it in low gears in local market areas with lots of clutch and brakes.

  • One of the best 250cc bike, Riding position is very comfortable but odd for pillon.Can easily touch 100kmph in less than 8 seconds and we can drive with ease.Rear break will work less effectively.
