Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying 250 Duke

Q. Which is best bike for long touring without any problem Duke 250 ABS or RE Classic 350 ABS?
  • D250 is a better bike in this comparison, though both are from entirely different category. D250 is a whopping 40kgs lighter than RE350 ABS and has excellent suspension helping exceptional road dynamics. D250 also has good fuel economy with shorter travel times . The rider seat on D250 is quite comfortable for long distance riding and styling is meant for highspeed cruising with minimal wind resistance. It is also the more reliable motorcycle among the two.
  • Both are different segments bikes. Both are OK with touring if your going under 100km/hr but above that RE gives vibrations. Also if your not a fan of heavy bikes prefer duke250
  • Re c350 obviously

Q. I am confused Duke 250 ABS 2019 model and Duke 390. Can you please suggest which one is better for city and long riders?
  • Power & Fun & Features = 390 DukeDaily Commute & Mileage = 250 DukeNot that 250 Duke isn't fun riding in the city. But 390 Duke is better than 250 Duke when it comes to that aspect.390 Duke's Highlighting features - *Full Color TFT Display*Full LED Headlamp*Switchable Rear ABS*Metzeller Tires*Some Cool features that comes with the TFT display.
  • If 65% of the rides are within city and rider is concerned about mileage (my motorcycle returns 31kmpl of combined mileage), then Duke 250 makes sense. If 70% of the time is spent on highways and covering distance soon is a thing of interest, then Duke390 is tremendous value for money.
  • Duke 250 is sufficient for both city and long riders, but if ur looking for a bit of extra torque n higher horsepower you can go for the Duke 390. keep in mind the 390 has higher fuel consumption and the engine heats up a little but you'll be riding an absolute monster on the streets. For a person who uses the bike for daily commute and rides in the city majority of the time, Duke 250 with a higher mileage made more sense to buy. I hope I have cleared you confusion.

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.
  • As of now, we haven't faced any issues regarding the air intake, engine sound and pickup of the bike. Moreover, the bike issues generally occur due to the factors like improper maintenance of the bike, riding conditions, rough riding style and use of the unauthorised spare parts.If you are still unsure about the bike, we would suggest you to take a test ride of the Duke 250 as it would definitely clarify your doubts about the bike.Click here for the dealership: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers/Ktm
  • 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.
  • For daily commute go for duke 200/250
