Impressive Performance Bike but Not suitable

2 months ago by Anoop Jain502 views

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.

Tips for KTM 250 Duke

Don't consider this of you are planning for long commute/ ride bike. But for fun it's awesome. its performance and punch it gives when shift, its awesome. its just a super performance bike.

    Got my delivery in December, and writing this review after a little over 2000kms. My daily commute is less than 8kms round-trip, so almost the entire of the 2000kms have been on weekend rides. 1. Th is bike loves the highways, and seemed comfortable cruising between 90-100kmph for extended periods.2. Travelling solo, with luggage is fine, but ground clearance becomes a major issue with pillion. Have to be extra careful while banking hard or crossing the odd speed bump.3. Average mileage over 2k kms is 38.4kmpl. Pure steady highway rides have got me 39+ kmpl, and pure in-city traffic heavy commutes have got me 34.7kmpl.4. 2nd 3rd gears feel too short and frequent gear changes in city traffic can be a bother.

    The duke 250 is a beautifully designed machine...It sits snug in the mid-range of the two aggressive duke's, the 200 and the 390. The 250 when kept in the lower rpm ranges behaves very gentle and calm which makes it a wonderful city bike and the moment you take the revs above 5k-6k rpm you'll hear the exhaust note change to tell you to hold on.It unleashes the dukes inner beast on the higher room ranges and performs flawlessly.The only issue is the small vibration rattles from the plastic and the service costs but i guess that's worth it when you look at it as a package.

    I mostly used for daily commute , riding in traffic sometimes sucks due to little overheating & hard seat makes you discomfort. Once you hit the highway you enjoy the ride. It has all the power & torque. Handling is just bliss . I love KTM they incorporate max specs to bike in the given budget . My bike was recently stolen i miss my partner .soon will buy 390.

It's a fun to ride bike in the city.

    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!
