    So i bought it for 2.4 lak on road in jaipur .I rode it in the city and highway and i have to say this its a combo pack very nice machine , you will really feel the thrill when have this 250cc beast between your legs .It looks extremly awesome , every-time i go on a ride people look at it and they will be like omg what is this beast . My first service is at 1000 km which cost me about 1700 rs .I found the service cost a bit expensive but it's ok .Pros:1)awesome looking 2)great power 3)good comfort ( rider ) and average ( pillion)Cons:1) whenever i shift the gears , i feel a noise like kaad kaad ,some likes it but it's kind of annoying for me rest all is manageable.

    I own duke 250 2018 model and i had completed almost 3000 km riding this bike in city as well as highways. I was looking for a bike having high power as well as good design in price range of 2 lakh which will be comfortable for daily commute and this bike stands for all my expectation so i bought it. Now i am sharing my experience with this bike as we all know every bike have some pros and some cons i will tell both of this bike. So first i will start with pros of this bike-1) this bike gives you best power of 30hp @9000 rpm and 24 nm of torque @7000 rpm in this price range.2) the look of this bike is simply awesome as its colours combination is eye catching.3) it gives you a fair mileage of 35 to 37 kmpl in highway and 30 to 32 kmpl in city.4) its fully digital instrument cluster which provides all necessary information like gear shift indicator, mileage according to the riding speed, trip meter, engine heat indicator, side stand indicator and many more.5) it does not heat up as much other ktm bikes heat.6) its riding posture is very comfortable as compared to other 250cc bikes for long as well as short rides.7) it comes with side exhaust which sounds really good when you cross 5k rpm.Now talking about its cons-1) it does not comes with abs even as an option, since it really needs to control such high power of 30hp.2) its mrf tyres is of average quality as metzeler will be best for it which comes with duke 390. that's it from me.3) it have a low top speed even as compared to 200cc bikes of other brand since bajaj rs200 and ns200 do 150+ easily and you have to struggle with this bike for reaching even 150.

    The bike has no comparison in this price range. The excellent look . The funky colour style. It come with 2 colours range white and orange. The look is similar to the duke 390 but the difference is the head light.The rear disc brakes are smaller in size. And the price range is fantastic. But if the bike has abs then it has no comparison in Asian market.

    Buying experience:

    Bought this bike from delhi

    On road price was 196000

    Bought it in september 2017

    Got it in 2 days after the formalities and paper work

    Showroom staff was quite helpful and helped in selecting this bike as per my needs.

    Riding experience:

    It's my first bike, so took me time learn to handle it's power and still learning.

    It's quite smooth and powerful at same time.

    Details about looks, performance:

    I can always see people turning their heads so i guess 5/5 for looks. Talking about performance, it has been performing well for till now and i am satisfied.

    Servicing and maintenance:

    Service costed me around ?1900, but it was a free service so labour charges were included.

    With labour charges added it costs around ?2500-2700.

    I bought a chain cleaner and chain lube

    Bike cleaner and polishing wax

    Costed me around 1.5k but it's overall cheaper because going every-time to service centers for washing and chain lubing will cost far more.

    Pros:

    Amazing power still good for daily commutes, looks, control

    Cons:

    1)ktm should offer abs for this bike since it's quite powerful and abs is a must in a place like India, plus for bike costing you around 2 lakhs abs should be provided.

    2)bike heats up aggressively in traffic but the cooling system does its job well, but during summers it gets quite uncomfortable to drive it.

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.
