About 250 Duke

KTM 250 Duke is a commuter bike available in 1 variant in india. Its price starts from ₹2,03,171 (ex-showroom). KTM 250 Duke generates 29.6 bhp of power and 24 nm of torque from its 248.8cc engine. Single cylinder engine of 250 Duke has a 6 speed manual gearbox. With both rear and front disk brakes, KTM 250 Duke also has an anti-locking braking system. This 169 kg bike is available in 2 colours.

The 250 Duke is KTM’s quarter-litre streetbike which sits in between its 200cc and 390cc siblings, in terms of price, displacement, features and components. The motorcycle has been updated to comply with new BS6 emission norms, besides receiving other changes.

The 250 Duke is powered by a 248.76cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor. Despite the BS6-bound changes, it continues to produce 29.6bhp at 9,000rpm and 24Nm at 7,500rpm. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox and KTM has now introduced slipper clutch for preventing the locking of rear wheel while aggressive downshifting.

The motorcycle boasts of a sharp and edgy styling and in order to enhance its appeal further, KTM has introduced a pair of new eye-catchy colour options including Silver Metallic and Dark Galvano. Yet another update is the introduction of Supermoto mode for its dual-channel ABS setup. It deactivates ABS only for the rear wheel to allow the rider to lock it for some sliding action.

Like other KTM models, the 250 Duke also incorporates top notch cycle parts such WP-sourced suspension setup and ByBre brakes. It is underpinned by a split-type trellis frame and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels which are shod with MRF Revz C1 tyres. Weighing at 161kg (kerb), the 250 Duke also boasts of an impressive power-to-weight ratio.

Considering its styling and displacement, the KTM 250 Duke competes against the Suzuki Gixxer 250 in India.

  •  5Awesome duke 5 days ago by Pk, Chennai

    The duke 250 is a beautifully designed machine...It sits snug in the mid-range of the two aggressive duke's, the 200 and the 390. The 250 when kept in the lower rpm ranges behaves very gentle and calm which makes it a wonderful city bike and the moment you take the revs
