    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. :)
