Ktm 250

5 months ago by Lalruatsanga Sailo682 views

Before going for ktm 250 duke, one should consider test riding other 250 cc motorcycles available in India. Still, handling of ktm bikes is exclusive to them in lightweight performance segment,had waited long, but ultimately had launched in India !! by going what's in the paper, it seems like it won't fall short in performance and will be a good investment!! also not to mention, the waiting period for the duke 390 is too bit longer as that of duke 250 & 200,which will be available from 8th of march.Best features: tft info screen, slipper clutch, ride by wire, led headlamps, adjustable suspension arms !!Pros: overhauling design from the previous generation duke 390. Looks will remain appealing for the coming 4 to 5 years.Cons: the waiting period of the duke 390 is more then 1 month after booking too. Price increases in different states, so have to go deep into pockets!!

    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.

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.
