Totally depends first of all the engine oil the motul engine oil which is commonly used in all KTM service centre is priced at 1185 rupees so if you are having oil change basic servicing requirement mark at least that much amount then you have oil filters and oil changing goes cost around 300 to 400 rupees also depend whether you have free servicing aur Pawan is it is paid one then you will be charged extra for labour charges around 200 to 300 rupees not to forget the chain cleaning and lubing which cause to 60 rupees total250 would be built some somewhere around 1500 to 2000 if your bike is bit old it would required few more check up and fix like coolant refilling or fuel filter change and at approx 500 of that if requird
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.
Service cost:120****600(upto 3rd service) after that service charge will be added.Chain and sprocket shall be replaced on every 10k-12k kms- approximately 3500.Tyres will be replaced after every 12k-15k kms-6900(stock tyres).Millage-highly opened throttle gives 25-30kmpl.normal rides-32-35kmpl.in straight highways I got 40 kmpl by maintaining speed 60kmph.
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.
The thud sound is due to gear shifter not in sync with the gear sprocket. To a certain extent, this can be avoided by adjusting the chain. However a little bit of that sound would remain after running the motorcycle for few hundred kilometers. It is not harmful to the engine. Suggest you to adjust chain, clean and l**e it every 500 kms for a smooth ride.
Because Bike starts at 1000-1500 rpm ,and when we upshift gear at this rpm range which is not ideal for 1st gear, it generate sound..solution is that after cold start, switch off the ignition, and then upshift gear before starting the engine
I face the same issue.... When I shift the gear... It is soo rough and the this sound comes... But initially when I bought the bike it used to be smooth
With the BS6 update, the exhaust end can on the new 250 Duke now lies underneath the bike instead of the side as seen on the previous model. Due to that, the ground clearance has dropped from 175mm to 151mm. To compensate for this, KTM has equipped a small bash plate, but if we were you, we would be extra cautious now. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.
Yes you can ride it like a normal bike. I have travelled 3000km on my new bike. And for most the speed breakers the groud clearneacce is enough.only in case of big illegal sizes of speed breaks that we see in galli of india the guard below touches the ground.but i drive slow at speed breakers and avoid huge damage and also i takr my bike cross on speed breaker to avoid the touching of gaurd to ground.i found this an issue but not a very major issue.
In my experience, there are no issues when riding solo, but with a pillion there is a bit of scraping, so just be careful over big bumps when riding with a pillion.
There are not any major problems in Duke 250. But, there are some minor problems are listed here :- 1) Duke 250 is high powered bike but, it doesn't have ABS which is the major drawback of KTM Duke 250. 2) The bike have heating issue when it is rode in city. 3) There is no LED DRL. It have Halogen light. 4) In this bike, the MRF Tyre is not so grippy. But, in Duke 390 we got the Metzeler which is more grippy as compared to its sibling Duke 250. 5) In rainy season, the moisture is started frozen inside the Instrument Cluster which is so irritating. It can also happens when the bike is washed out. Bike is kickass in all cases in its segment. So, go for it guys. I hope my answer is helpful to you.
Sorry! No clear resolution thus far. Yesterday got the periodic service done and the Service advisor told me that there is nothing to worry. However, to find out more, have written to KTM India now. If you can share your motorcycle's credentials at 'all but mighty _at_ gmail (dot) com', I can include your reference too as a follow up correspondence. Hope that helps!
One problem which I've experienced recently. This could be an one-of issue too. While riding, suddenly the ABS indicator turns on and an error code appears on display 'CAN ABS Failure'. After a min or so, it disappears on its own. Other than that I've not had any issue with the motorcycle.
