    duke 250 is pocket rocket easy to handle in traffic both brake are damn good bike acceleration is quick rear suspension are little bit hard tyres are not so good in off roading bike actual mileage is 28 km per liter bike maintenance is little bit expensive than other bikes. bike issues bike gear shift is very hard and noisy and bike chain is very noisy if your riding in offroad bike engine is not so reliable.

    1. I purchased the bike at the time of october in 2017 and there is not that much to say about the purchasing experience because even you pay by cash they didn't give you any benefits like some discount or accessories.2. If you want adrenaline boost this is the bike. If you like to have a very very much responsive bike then this is it. You can never go wrong with ktm but i must say that you have to understand the bike before purchase it because i have seen people buying ktm rc bikes and complaining about its long time riding problems people have to understand that rc is a series which is mainly focused on track riding not for long rides or even daily commutes if it is more than 5-6 kilometers. This bike duke 250 is very much agile you can curve through the corners very precisely. Although back in 2017 when i bought this bike it doesn't have any abs version lucky for people's now it has it. That was the only thing i is feeling bad about my bike other than that it is a real beauty with so much power.3. Looks wise it is the best looking bike in its segment. Among any other brands bike you cannot feel the design that much that you can feel in this. This design looks like it's meant to cut through air. If anyone looking for higher torque not higher top speed then this bike have it.4. Servicing is very cheap compared to other brands like kawasaki or money consuming bmw. 5.Pros are i. Best torque in its segment ii. Very much agile despite being heavy. iii. Well priced, comes with more than what you pay. iv. Best looking design. con. I.Lack of abs.(for buyers before 2019) if you are buying this bike now it checks every boxes of your expectations.

KTM bikes are always known as racing bikes , but duke series are not for race. If you enjoy your ride with powerful machine then you can buy this machine. It's also a good bike for city riding.

    I bought my Ktm duke 250 on 28th march 2017 i rode the bike about 11000 km, looks wise its awesome, Performance is phenomenal.. I live in West Bengal here service is not good,If i order any part they ordered it and it came in around 1 month or later sometimes part was wrong also. if i say about some cons: firstly bike has some vibes in front right side footpeg,seats,and in the side cowl if you rev it 7k lr 8k rpm . secondly chain sprocket is just bad i lube it many time actually i lube it in every 200 km but chain has some bad noise like 'khat khat' i showed it many times but they did not solve it they said "it is normal".. thirdly bike is not stable in higher speed, braking is not that great also. Otherwise bike is perfectly fine and awesome. if you want a naked sport bike and you just learned biking from a 150cc bike you can trust the bike and go for it.. Happy Riding!.

The 250 duke, at Rs 1.78 lakhs, cost just 29,000 more than the 200 duke. So if you can stretch your budget by that much, the 250 duke is the way to go.

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.
