KTM 250 Duke Latest Updates

The KTM 250 Duke has been updated with dual-channel ABS which can be switched off completely. Priced at Rs 1.94 lakh (ex-showroom India), the safety aid comes at a premium of Rs 14,000. There are no mechanical changes reported on the motorcycle.

The 250 Duke is the latest addition to the KTM Duke range in India. The 2017 model features a completely new design and borrows styling bits and features from both the new 390 Duke and 200 Duke. KTM already manufactures the 250 Duke in India and exports it to other countries so local production should keep prices competitive. The 250 Duke carries a similar design as the new 390 Duke but gets black wheels and black front frame. The headlamp is the same split one as the 390 Duke but misses out on LED technology and features a conventional halogen bulb instead. It also misses out on the colour LCD screen and has an updated digital unit. The bike has a 248.8cc liquid-cooled motor that makes 30PS, 5PS more than the 200 Duke. It gets a slipper clutch. The 250 Duke will sit in between the 200 Duke and the 390 Duke.

Editor's View of KTM 250 Duke

  • Upside

    Sharp and attractive styling, Bang for buck, Performance

  • Downside

    No LED headlamp, MRF tyres

  • Our Verdict

    The KTM 250 Duke is for someone who finds the 390 Duke too powerful and expensive. It gets modern styling, powerful motor and top-spec cycle parts and the addition of dual channel ABS sweetens the deal.

Q. Is 250 duke comfortable for 5.5 ft height? for .?
  • For a person with 5ft 5inches height, Duke 250 will be a bit difficult to have both legs (sole) to be kept flat on ground. However, I know a guy of that height riding a Duke390 (similar height like Duke250). It boils down to riding skills. In cities where there is stop go traffic, this could be an issue where we frequently need to plant our feet at signals. : By Milw | 5 months ago

    I find that this duke is perfect for city commutes, getting to and from work is fun with this ride. Fun things: Its got power after you rev past a few RPMs, which means it is quick enough and you'll love it.I think this is the best looking ride in the naked bike segment in its class and slightly above as well. If you ride 20kms rather economically every day, Rs. 00 per week should cover your fuel expenditure. It is quite comfortable for those relatively long rides. The headaches: Sluggish performance when accelerating to the mid range from the low range, it"s almost as if though it does not want to sprint. Very annoying and dangerous whilst trying to overtake. Brakes are simply not powerful enough for the power output or high speeds. The absence of an ABS makes it worse and dangerous at high speeds. You would have to take it to a technician every now and then to adjust the slack on the chain for optimum performance. Parts tend to get damaged quickly within a year, and screws, nuts and bolts tend to fall off rather quickly. The rear shock absorber for instance was totally replaced even though I had been using it for city commute. The halogen bulb headlight makes the bike look bad. Could have come with a TFT screen. Conclusion: Fun city bike with enough power to thrill on an occasional long jaunt. You"ll eventually love riding it around town as long its maintained well at short intervals.

    In my opinion no bike comes near to styling of KTM Duke 250. Whenever I park my bike anywhere some people always try to touch my bike. In my office people whom I don"t know also know me by the bike. When it comes to power it"s got crazy power packed if you are beginner u will definitely lose the handlebars once this beast accelerates. I ride rough so I get mileage between 20-25 in city maybe if I ride smoothly I might get 30. Exhaust note is really beautiful once u go faster with higher rpm. When i bought bike my bike had lot of vibrations which went of after 1000km. Its a bike for people who don"t care about spending money. This bike has wide handlebars so it"s sometimes difficult to get through small gaps. This bike is also very heavy at 166kg if you are weak guy u will have lot of trouble moving the bike. Also the seat height is very high for 5"10 because sometimes when the ground level is a little lower than normal (like pothole or something) u will find it difficult to put legs down. But this can be avoided to certain extent by adjusting the rear suspension.I wouldn"t recommend this bike for short guys.Maintenance cost is around 1k per service.

    It was in the late afternoon of April when my dad called me and asked me to accompany him to the city. I was bored at home so i went without any hesitation. Before long i was in Dibrugarh in front of KTM showroom1(boiragimoth). Dad went inside and talked to the store guys for some time. While i checked out the beast of a1bike, the duke 390. I was wondering how it would feel to ride a duke 390 one day when Dad tapped me on the shoulder and i followed him outside. Then we went home...i was excited that something was going on.. my dad wouldn't tell me why we went to the showroom. Then in the evening we had a delivery. A brand new duke 250. I1was super excited. I grabbed the key and jumped on the bike.. but dad stopped me and said this bike is not for you but for your cousin. I was heartbroken, as i was just given a Gixxer SF for my birthday and my cousin was1getting a beast. I went inside dejected and heartbroken.... after a few hours...i was called to ear1dinner...when i went inside... everyone was laughing.... I didn't knew what was going on.. i had my dinner and1was about to leave when dad stopped me....and everyone began laughing again.....then dad handed me the bike's key and said..its your because u did well in the mid terms...i was so happy

    Does the KTM simply bridge the gap between the 390 Duke and 200 Duke? Or does it open up another avenue to performance motorcycling?
