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.
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
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 Duke 200 will have better mileage because of the smaller engine, service cost should be similar, however since Duke 200 has a fiber tank versus the metal tank on duke 250, Duke 200 should be cheaper to repair if you crash the bike or have an accident.
Service cost is somewhat similar, 200 is economical and there is not much difference in power output, mileage is obviously more on 200.
City use mailage low Service cost duke 200Highway use touring.. Mailage 30 or below 30 top end good sliper clutch
I'm 5'2 I got my Duke 250 bs6 on 23rd September 2020, I'm really comfortable on the bike, I'm able to corner, take it on the Track with ease and tour as well, I've already completed 800+ kms on the bike! In traffic and while pulling the bike back it's a slight issue but I'm fine with it, I'm extremely passionate about motorcycles, I'm really ok and comfortable with my Bike! It's always good to have a visit to the showroom and see if your comfortable with the Motorcycle, I never took a test ride as motorcycling is all about adventure I took up the risk to get the bike without any test ride! Now I actually feel more comfortable and easy on taller and bigger motorcycles over the small ones!I love my bike!
There are no suspension adjustments available in D250 for seat heightground clearance. Also, 5' 3" will be a bit short for D250. However, if determined, you can still learn to master D250. It could be a bit tough at the beginning, but is not impossible. For reference, please look at most dual sportoffroad bikes sold by major motorcycle brands. Even for a 6 feet tall guy, having both the feet planted on ground is difficult. Does that stop from riding those bikes? NO! Go ahead and buy your bike of choice and master the machine! Do not worry about anything else. Have a Happy and Safe riding!
I am 5'10 and i still struggle to ride the bike with both feets on the ground. I suggest you not to gof for Duke 250 unless you want a more comfortable bike for yourself. But you can still ride the bike. If your passion is more than the comfort zone you can go for it. But it's going to be a struggle in traffic. Hope you have a good one. :)
