    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!

    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.

    1. Not much expensive i think everyone can afford who is motorcycle lover 2 .Riding experience was amazing and first pick up was awesome i think no bike is faster than duke 250 and 390.3. Looks are different than every bike every single part of bike attractive n sexy , performance is top than other bike like if you will compare and if you ll still say so go take a ride today .4 service is good there is notching to take service unless changing the oil n and maintenance is nothing all you have to do is refill the petrol and oiling the chain 5 .Pros. Little expensive but can affordable . Best ride ever.Very faster.No one is offering feature as duke is offers Cons..Very faster can be dangerous.Don't ride very fast at traffic n off road 6 .And always take zero debt insurance :d

    The latest addition to the ktm duke range in India is the 250 duke.The new 250 duke features a completely new bodywork similar to the upcoming 2017 200 duke and gets features from both the new 390 duke and 200 duke.The 250 duke is styled similar to the new 390 duke but gets black wheels and black front frame.The headlamp is a split unit as the new 390 duke but does not get led technology featuring a conventional halogen bulb instead.It loses out on the color tft screen and has an updated digital unit instead. The 248.8cc liquid-cooled motor makes 30ps, 5ps more than the 200 duke.It gets a slipper clutch like the 390 duke. The 250 duke will sit in between the 200 duke and the 390 duke. Ktm locally manufactures the 250 duke and exports it to other countries so local production keeps prices competitive at rs 1.73 lakh (ex-delhi).The 250 duke faces competition from the benelli tnt 25 and the mahindra mojo.

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.
