    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.

    The stylish bike ever i had seen. The tork of this bike is amazing and the mileage of this bike is amazing so that i never went out of petrol. The style and sound is really fantastic. I like the backside and the cylinder the most as well the doom style is best. In this price range this will be the best, fastest and stylish bike in whole India. The speed is really faster and i never run short of time i always catch the time. I drive it at a great speed of 150 plus as a racer.

    Ktm duke 250 pros

    1) most powerful in its class: the engine on the new 250 duke is the most powerful engine in its class. The 248.8cc, single cylinder motor is good for 30 ps at 9000 rpm and 24 nm at 7500 rpm. The engine further comes mated to a slipper clutch assisted 6-speed gearbox. This makes it the most powerful quarter liter motorcycle of india, leaving behind benelli tnt 25 and yamaha fz 25 by a considerable margin.

    2) impressive design: 2017 ktm 250 duke is currently the most affordable motorcycle in the lineup that resembles the mighty ktm 1290 super duke r. The front headlight design is quite resembling but due to some cost cutting measures, they have used halogen light for the headlamp. The fuel tank is borrowed from the 390 duke and the same tank extensions are offered on the 250 duke. It even uses the same frame as the bigger duke.

    3) slipper clutch: the use of slipper clutch on the ktm 250 duke makes it quite better than other bikes around its segment. This helps the rider in achieving flawless shifts in even the most terrifying traffic around the city. When the rider is in the mood of sprinting with the new 250 duke, slipper clutch helps in limiting the back torque while suddenly changing gears from higher to the lower side.

    4) side mounted exhaust: 2017 ktm 250 duke comes with the same side mounted exhaust as the bigger 2017 ktm 390 duke and rc 390. This not just adds to the appeal but also enhances the exhaust note of the motorcycle. The sound becomes more mature and lesser pop can be heard through the new exhaust system. It unfortunately weighs 7 kg but the powerful engine can manage excellent performance with this added weight.

    5) large fuel tank: the fuel tank on the motorcycle is 13.5 liters, making it good for more kilometers per every refill. Not just that, the fuel tank is made from steel, helping riders carry their magnetic tank bags with much ease. The fuel tank on the older version was a plastic unit and measured slightly more than 10 liters. The same is even designed to provide the best knee placement on the street fighter.

    Ktm duke 250 cons

    1) no abs: ktm willingly skipped the dual channel abs from the 250 duke as the same feature was available on the international spec model. They did that for cost cutting but still priced the same at inr 1,73,000 (launch price). They could have either provided the same as optional as most fans were of the view that they would go for an abs equipped version of the new duke.

    2) no metzelers: the sticky metzeler tyres on the international spec version has been replaced with mrf tyres on the indian version. This is even a cost cutting feature but indians are now more specific about motorcycling and need these equipment in order to live the dream riding life. They have not even announced a version with optional metzeler tyres for the 250 duke.

    3) old instrument console: 2017 ktm 250 duke comes with the same old instrument console that has been available on all ktm bikes in 2016. The new 390 duke uses an instrument console that is colored tft unit and comes with bluetooth smartphone integration. The old unit is also quite reliable but they could have used the new one for more practically.
