Here is what our experts feel about 250 Duke
Up front, the headlight on the Duke 250 is reminiscent of the first generation Superduke and looks very stunning with the halo-styled LED position lights. All the switch-gear comes with a backlit blue light. Front fender looks neatly shaped and looks more modern. Sharp and edgy fuel tank takes the centre stage with its steel tank and extended tank cowls with bold sporty lines. The muscular tank is sculpted appropriately to slot your knees in and grip it perfectly. To take the sporty appeal to a whole new level, a refereshed set of graphics and fonts have been used. Side mounted exhaust looks very neat and perfectly compliments the rest of the design. Rear LED tail lamp looks really stunning in its new layout. Seats are all new, with new texture and brand logo engraved makes it look special. The screen of the instrument console is similar to the one found on the previous generation Dukes. Now it also shows kill-switch is on or off and real-time fuel consumption, also includes speedometer, odometer, trip meter, clock, and gear position indicator. White and Orange are the only two colour schemes currently available on the KTM Duke 250.
Duke 250’s state-of-the-art 248.8cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid- cooled engine with twin overhead camshafts once again shows KTM's development strength. The powerful engine provides a maximum power of 29.91PS at 9000rpm with a peak torque of 24Nm at 7500rpm and is mated to a 6-speed transmission. KTM Duke 250 comes equipped with mechanically operated PASC anti-hopping clutch which prevents rear wheel hopping when braking sharply and also allows the clutch to be controlled by just one finger. Fuel and engine components are managed by the intelligent Bosch EMS. The bike not only delivers a bountiful torque and punchy acceleration but also has an outstanding fuel economy of 41kmpl. Thanks to the ingenious intake and exhaust system, city traffic leaves behind at the twist of the wrist with a top speed of 132kmph. Fuel tank capacity is at 13.4 litres which is more than enough.
The seat seems to be pretty comfortable and the bike is very well balanced. It also has a perfect seating posture with the handlebar moved closer to the rider thereby increasing more control to the rider. KTM Duke 250 gets a split trellis frame with a bolt-on subframe that provides superb handling and stability. The bike is very compact, nimble and packs a solid punch. Front suspension on this bike is handled by WP upside-down 43mm forks with 142mm of travel and now the fork seals are of better quality to prevent leakage or any issues. On the rear, the suspension is taken care of by the tough WP monoshock with 150mm of travel. Braking duties are handeled by 300mm disc with a four-piston radial fixed calliper on the front while the rear gets 230mm disc with a single-piston floating calliper. This bike does miss out on ABS but the brakes do perform well. This bike gets the same multi-spoke 17-inch alloys seen on the Duke 390 shod with tubeless tyres of section 110/70 on front and a section 150/60 on the rear. Tyres on this bike provide excellent grip for those curves and turn on the roads.
Duke 250 does not only look sporty but is actually super fast too. So, to control such a monster machine it does need safe braking as well. Unlike the Duke 390, the bike does miss on the ABS, but the dual disc setup provides enough bite and safe stopping power. Another safety feature on this bike is the mandated AHO system in the headlight which keeps the bike safe and visible to the oncoming traffic.
