With 18 Dakar titles in its kitty, KTM has shown that it can build hardcore adventure motorcycles that have proven their off-road prowess time and again. However, lower down the displacement chart, KTM’s adventure motorcycles seem to be differently focused.

So, does the same formula apply to its smaller sibling, the KTM 250 Adventure? To find out, we rode the motorcycle for a couple of days in the city, on the highway, and a wee bit off-road to tell you about its performance, comfort, and most importantly- whether it is worth the Rs 2.48 lakh price tag.
