Best in its segment beast

7 months ago by Sagar Mondal567 views

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.

Tips for KTM 250 Duke

    Buying experience was very good. I bought duke 250 from KTM Chandra layout Bengaluru. I waited for an month and took its first delivery in whole of Bengaluru. Daily short commute is comfortable. But long commute can become uncomfortable since the seats are hard. but the suspension setup is very smooth. But the small humps can make bottom belly touch the hump. So that is worst part, new bike scrape in bottom guard. After a week of purchase did a long ride of 300 km and the economy was shocking for me because it gave me 37-38kmpl and strictly followed not revving above 6k. New color are eye catchy. and not much change in look. Then now I had completed my first service which costed me 1.7k. And then now I had not rode much. After service I rode for around 100km. After service there is really smoothness in engine. And the performance is as always it's the best. And vehicle is very stable in top speeds. Cons: when we scratch the bottom belly of KTM will feel really sad. No mileage for short rides maybe I get 25 kmpl. LED headlight was actually required seeing the price point. Instrument cluster also could have to upgraded to one in 390.

    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!
