Q. I am planning to buy Duke 250 BS6. Is the bike reliable for long term use? Can be used for rides say 300 to 400 km? Asking because of seat hardness. What about the suspension, is it suitable for rough Indian roads?
  • Seat is a bit on stiffer side, but that shouldn't be a problem because it isn't that uncomfortable. I've driven my Duke 250 BS6 continuously for 3 hours without much problem. Suspensions are good. But in the BS6 version, the clearance is a bit less. So the lower end of the bike may touch the road if a bumper is a bit too high. Clearance is less than normal bikes. It's not a very big problem, just that be careful with bumpers or deep pits. As the suspension if soft, lower end may touch the road if you move fast on a high bumper or if you have a pillion. Because a pillion will compress the suspension significantly.
  • You can change the rear suspension preload with the tool included in your toolkit to solve this problem. My bike has become more responsive after I increased the preload by 3 clicks
  • Clockwise or anticlock wise?

  • 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.

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.
