February 23, 2017: 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. The bike is priced at Rs 1.73 lakh (ex-Delhi). Rivals include the Benelli TNT 25 and the Mahindra Mojo.
Sharp and attractive styling, Bang for buck, Performance
No ABS, No LED headlamp, MRF tyres
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.
