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.
