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.

KTM 250 Duke 2018 prices start at Rs. 1.79 lakh (Ex-Showroom). KTM 250 Duke 2018 is avialable in 1 variants and 2 colours.
Does the KTM simply bridge the gap between the 390 Duke and 200 Duke? Or does it open up another avenue to performance motorcycling?
What if I told you the new KTM 250 Duke is as refined as a Japanese motorcycle? As incredulous as it may sound, the 250 Duke surprised us with its performance and the fact that it is so much easier to live with than the 200 Duke despite the higher power output. But does that mean the 250 Duke loses out on the traits that makes KTM bikes stand apart from the competition? We beg to differ.
Orange is the new blackYou’d be forgiven to mistake the 250 Duke, at first glance, for the larger 390 Duke. While the previous generation 390 and 200 Duke shared the same bodywork, the new models have the 200 Duke carry the old bodywork and frame. The 250 Duke gets the new 390 Duke’s frame and bodywork, minus the all-LED headlamp. Instead, it gets a similar-shaped unit with a regular halogen setup lined with an inverted U-shaped DRL. Illumination might not be as good as an LED setup but it does give you a bright and wide spread.
It also misses out on the Duke 390’s colour TFT instrument panel. Instead, you get the 200 Duke’s monochrome LCD console. That's disappointing as the rpm bar is small and hard to read on the move, and moreover the 390...read more »
Just how good is the brand new 250 Duke? Is it a mere upgrade for current 200 Duke owners, or more?
