- Both bikes nearly Rs 2,000 dearer now
- Remain unchanged in all other areas
KTM recently revised the prices of its entire Duke series in India and the highest increment has been received by the 390 Duke and the 250 Duke. Both bikes now demand a premium of around Rs 2,000 over their previous prices. As a result, the ex-showroom (Delhi) prices of the 390 Duke and the 250 Duke stand at Rs 2.94 lakh and Rs 2.35 lakh, respectively.
The new prices have come into effect from 5 May, 2022. In a circular sent out to all dealers, Bajaj has mentioned the reason for this hike as the surge in commodity prices. It is to be noted that the company had already increased the prices just a few weeks back. However, the commodity price hike has been relatively much higher so Bajaj revised the prices once again.
The 390 and 250 Duke share similar styling, barring the difference in their paint schemes and headlamp. Even the cycle parts including chassis, wheels, suspension, and brakes are alike to some extent. However, the biggest difference lies in their engine. The 390 Duke is powered by an extremely peaky 373cc mill that produces 42.9bhp and 37Nm. Whereas, the 250 Duke runs on a smoother and more tractable 248cc motor that’s good for 29.6bhp and 24Nm. Both bikes get a six-speed gearbox but the 390 incorporates a bi-directional quick shifter which is a rarity in this segment.
