    Powerful, comfortable, in simple word a beast in the bike . Wonderful bike. Worth for money and it teaches you a lot about leaning and tipping into corners. Much better than the old dukes (agreed to the torque and the raw power of the old dukes is lacking) but that makes the new duke more reliable engines and are more fun to ride. Overall, it is also perfect for a college student or daily commuter as it puts perfect style and the mileage needed for indian buyers.

    Good buying experience Riding experience is great Look is amazing,performance is also good I think ktm service centres lacks some things Abs should be standard Good 2 use for long tours but you should carry chain lube so that u lube it.Braking is good but having an abs increases our safety which is a good thing and look wise this bike is amazing.

    This duke 250 is a great bike.... The price is little bit on the higher side as it does not comes with abs .. but it shares most of its parts with the duke 390... the riding experience on this bike is phenomenal ... on the streets it is delight to ride this bike... the engine pulls really great after 6000 rpm ... but it is bad for offroads and bad roads ...this looks like the 2016 duke 1290 r ... its is such a beautiful machine... servicing and maintenance is okay not too expensive not too cheap ... it takes about rs 1500-2000 each time . the pros are that this bike is much more refined than other ktm's .. this bike is a all rounder ... great on twisties... got a slipper clutch... cons are chain makes rattling noise very often...

    Bike is awesome power mileage handling the tail light look damn good and rear tyre are good top speed is not so good it cross 145 but bike is smooth enough to city ride and for long ride ,tour bike has so much of power which make this think powerful machine in this category mostly like think is sleeper clutch, smooth gear shift, awesome power delivery , comfortable ride ,looks white colour combination is great i think , is better then duke 200 and great mileage also it probably cost 2 lakh almost but awesome bike downside of the bike is seat height ,no abs ,top speed ,tyre is not so good but job done , head light and fuel tank.

    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.

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.
