KTM 250 Duke is a commuter bike available in 2 variants in india. Its lowest version starts from a price of ₹1,96,672 (ex-showroom) and the top version from a price of ₹2,00,000 (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, the top variant of KTM 250 Duke also has an anti-locking braking system. This 161.9 kg bike is available in 4 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.
