    The buying and riding experience with my bike is absolutely gorgeous! the handling & performance is much better than most of the bikes in it's class. The low end i.E 2k-4k rpm is quite engaging which makes it a great city bike and also a gem in quick overtakes without downshifting. The slipper clutch works quite well on aggressive downshifting and also less clutch use in traffic. The braking is quite good but it does lack initial bite but it's quite good for a non abs bike (2018 model). I would recommend swapping the brake pads to ceramic and fluid to dot 4 or 5.1 which would improve it the most! Overall my experience with the bike is really great and i can surely recommend it!

    The bike is very attractive in terms of looks, awesome comfort compared to other ktm bikes. Had a great experience with it since its a spawn of the beast which looks sequel to ktm super duke 1290. Everything is fine. Just go for it because the maintenance is very low if you use it effectively. Cheers !!

    One of the top notch bikes i've ever ridden! it's a bit costly when it comes to 200-250cc bikes. But, let me tell you, you'll not regret it once you buy this beast. It can go up to 130kmph. My personal best is 129kmph. Ktm have improved a lot in terms of handling and ty...
    One of the top notch bikes i've ever ridden! it's a bit costly when it comes to 200-250cc bikes. But, let me tell you, you'll not regret it once you buy this beast. It can go up to 130kmph. My personal best is 129kmph. Ktm have improved a lot in terms of handling and tyre quality. About servicing; it's awesome especially the service which ktm delivers is unmatchable. Pros: best in class. 2)it proves this quote 'drop a gear and disappear'.3)the exhaust is marvellous.Cons: it heats up pretty quick even though it has liquid cooling.2)too powerful! do not ride if you're not equipped with the complete riding gear.

Ranjan R. Bhat

The KTM Duke range has always been a hacksaw in a world of kitchen knives. The 200 Duke and 390 Duke redefined our perception of performance and lightness. They stood apart from the herd of commuter bikes, and ushered in a new reality for enthusiasts. However, while a...

2017 KTM 250 Duke : Track Ride Review

01 March 2017
Omkar Thakur

It is the KTM 250 Duke – the new addition to the KTM lineup that sits between the 200 and the 390. It is built like a Duke 390 but gets a smaller motor and fewer things off the equipment list.
