Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying 250 Duke

Q. BS6 machine is powerful than BS4?
  • KTM 250 Duke has received a massive update both in terms of styling and mechanicals. It looks meaner and sharper than ever before and gets a new composite subframe and a redesigned swingarm. 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 mono-shock, 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-liter fuel tank unlike the smaller units seen on earlier Dukes, and at 150kg dry, it’s about 4kg heavier than before.Read more:KTM Gives The 250 And 125 Duke Its Biggest Update Yet.
Q. I am 6.2 feet tall boy, for me Duke 250 bs 6 is suitable for me for long ride?
  • KTM 250 Duke has a saddle height of 830m. It would be comfortable as the seat too is wider now and does not pose much of a problem for long rides. The ride has improved considerably and the 250 Duke just dismisses most bad road surfaces and potholes. It is still set up on the stiffer side but the rider is now better insulated from the road surface. Sharp edges and ridges too are taken care of without much of a bother to the rider. Moreover, comfort is something that can be judged personally and varies from person to person. So, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort.

Q. Has Duke 250 price increased in April 2021?
  • Yes, KTM has hiked the prices. The 250 Duke now costs Rs 2,21,623, which is a whole Rs 4,230 more than what we were paying until now.

    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

    The Duke 250 is a beautifully designed machine...it sits snug in the midrange of the two aggressive Duke's, the 200 and the 390. The 250 when kept in the lower rpm ranges behaves very gentle and calm which makes it a wonderful city bike and the moment you take the revs above 5k-6k rpm you'll hear the exhaust note change to tell you to hold on.It unleashes the Dukes inner beast on the higher rom ranges and performs flawlessly.The only issue is the small vibration rattles from the plastic and the service costs but I guess that's worth it when you look at it as a package.

    Overall performance is good in a 250cc single cylinder motor. cranked at a speed of 151 with pillion. Touring a 900km stretch with pillion, reached in 19hours continues drive. only maintained the chain lubricant once in that trip. pillion comfort is not good for fat persons either its 250 or 390, the overall pillion comfort is average. mileage is great lowest mileage when i fully throttle it gives me 28 average i get 33,34 and more mileage i get when i ride smoothly on highways gets around 40+ Anyway, i'm satisfied with the bike
