KTM 250 Duke Latest Updates

KTM has launched the 250 Duke BS6 in India at Rs 2,00,576 (ex-showroom Delhi), making it Rs 3,328 more expensive than the BS4 version. This premium, in addition to getting you a cleaner engine, also adds new paint schemes. Thankfully, there's no change in power figures and the bike continues to deliver 30PS at 9000rpm and 24Nm at 7500rpm from its 248.8cc liquid-cooled motor.

250 Duke Specifications

We’re happy to report that the single-cylinder 248.8cc liquid-cooled DOHC motor hasn’t lost any output in the quest for cleaner emissions. You still get the same 29.91PS at 9000rpm and 24Nm at 7500rpm as before. The motor is mated to a 6-speed gearbox via a slipper clutch. To help it meet BS6 standards, the motor now exhales through an additional catalytic converter. The ECU maps have been revised as well. Everything is held together by a KTM signature steel-trellis frame. The rear sub-frame is a bolt-on design to make accidental damage repair easier. It’s suspended on an upside-down fork and preload-adjustable monoshock, both from WP. Stopping duties are handled by a 300mm/230mm disc brake combo. Dual-channel ABS is standard and non-switchable. The 250 Duke gets a reasonable 13-litre fuel-tank unlike the smaller units seen on earlier Dukes, and at 150kg dry, it’s about 4kg heavier than before.

250 Duke Design

Up until recently, if you couldn’t afford a 390 Duke, the 250 Duke was the only bike available if you wanted something that mimicked the Super Duke design language. It retains the same butch streetfighter looks even in BS6 form, but misses out on an LED headlight, having to make do with a halogen unit instead. For 2020, some new colour schemes have been thrown in to try and keep the bike relevant.

250 Duke Features

In terms of features on the 250 Duke, you get fully-digital LCD instrumentation, which in addition to all the standard info also shows you things like distance-to-empty, real-time fuel consumption, and average speed. The tail lamp and turn indicators are LED units, and safety is provided by a dual-channel ABS.

KTM 250 Duke Competitors

When grouping by price, the 250 Duke competes against the likes of the Bajaj Dominar 400, while in terms of specifications, it goes up against the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the upcoming Bajaj Dominar 250.

Editor's View of KTM 250 Duke

  • Upside

    Refined, tractable motor, comfortable suspension

  • Downside

    Doesn’t have the signature KTM character, feels sedate, lacks features compared to 390 Duke

  • Our Verdict

    Probably the most un-KTMish KTM of them all, the 250 Duke with its relaxed motor and comfy suspension is a great choice for those who aren’t looking to set lap records but want something quick and convenient for everyday use.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying 250 Duke

Q. Duke 200 vs 250 which one better to Buy ?
  • The 250 Duke is quicker off the line, and mid-range punch is particularly strong, with performance tapering off at the top of the rev range rather expectedly. Cross 4000rpm and the motor buzzes to life, accelerating hard. On the other hand the new engine sounds calmer, less loud and more mature than the 200’s raspy sound. We are yet to test the bike for performance, but the 250 Duke feels quicker than the 200 Duke by a fair margin. In-gear acceleration is quicker – a mere twist of the throttle is required to overtake at most times thanks to its close gear ratios, courtesy the bigger rear sprocket. KTM couldn’t confirm the difference but the 250’s sprocket is bigger than the 200’s. The engine feels refined, with just a hint of vibration from the footpegs which never really got distracting. The 250 Duke also felt more relaxed and comfortable cruising at triple digit speeds, as the higher torque output lets the engine spin at lower revs than the 200 Duke at speeds of 100-120kmph, which should make it a better tourer. The 250 Duke misses out on the 390’s ride-by-wire but throttle response is quick thanks to the quick-revving engine and corners exits thanks to the response and the torquey mill are quick.

  • Totally depends first of all the engine oil the motul engine oil which is commonly used in all KTM service centre is priced at 1185 rupees so if you are having oil change basic servicing requirement mark at least that much amount then you have oil filters and oil changing goes cost around 300 to 400 rupees also depend whether you have free servicing aur Pawan is it is paid one then you will be charged extra for labour charges around 200 to 300 rupees not to forget the chain cleaning and lubing which cause to 60 rupees total250 would be built some somewhere around 1500 to 2000 if your bike is bit old it would required few more check up and fix like coolant refilling or fuel filter change and at approx 500 of that if requird
  • The Service interval is in all 7.5k KM's and it will cost you around 2.5k if you just go for the oil change and normal services. Rest all depends on parts. Bike parts are not that costly. Mileage depends on the rpm and whether it is city or highway, city max you will get up to 26-28kmpl, when it comes to highway 30 for sure, and if you cruise in 80-85kmph you will get 33-35kmph.
  • Service cost:120****600(upto 3rd service) after that service charge will be added.Chain and sprocket shall be replaced on every 10k-12k kms- approximately 3500.Tyres will be replaced after every 12k-15k kms-6900(stock tyres).Millage-highly opened throttle gives 25-30kmpl.normal rides-32-35kmpl.in straight highways I got 40 kmpl by maintaining speed 60kmph.

Q. Is 250 duke comfortable for 5.5 ft height? for .?
  • Once the bike starts, you won't feel a thing. But to be honest, you'll have a little bit of difficulty while trying to maneuver the bike with your feet when it is off. More problems if the surface is uneven, reversing would definitely be difficult. It would be better if you maneuver the bike by getting off it and pushing it around till it gets into your desired position. It's all good otherwise.
  • 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.
  • It depends on your experience. If you are riding for longer time you find it very good but if you are starting or a beginner you might feel uncomfortable or might not.Better Test ride.

Q. Can I change Duke 250 headlight to 390 headlight?
  • Extremely expensive and complicated to replace a D250 headlight with D390 headlight. All wiring, ECU and headlamp clusters will need replacement. Not advisable. Instead, get an aftermarket LED unit for the headlamp.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Wonderful Bike. Worth the MONEYTeaches you a lot about Leaning And tippng into Corners..Much better then the old dukes (agreed the torque and the Raw Power of the old Dukes is lacking) but that makes the New dukes more reliable Engines and are More fun to Ride as Overall Bikes.The Duke 250 is also a Perfect College Student or Daily Commuter bike as it puts Perfect Style and Milege needed for Indian Buyers.

    for the naked segment of 250cc the Duke 250 is the best choice , it have better comfort factors than its younger siblings the 200 and 125 , the aerodynamics is best in case of sppeding up and a better riding position

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