KTM Duke 250 India launch happens at a stellar price which will make sure the KTM Duke 250 will find a lot of garages
We told you didn’t we. Last Thursday after the official announcement we got you an EXCLUSIVE SCOOP that the Duke 250 is coming to the Indian market despite the fact it was confirmed by KTM officials and a publication reporting otherwise. Bajaj’s habit of awesome surprises weren’t so secret this time and our sources told us that the Duke 250 is coming to the Indian market for sure. This is the exact same model that was spied earlier but was convinced as a Duke 200 couple of months back. Let’s us give you the details in full, follow us.
KTM Duke 250 Design and Dimensions
The new design on the motorcycle can be seen as it made back in 2015 for Japanese and other markets so it had the previous Duke styling. The large headlamps, which are devoid of LED lamps but has white DRL stuck around it which will come with the bike. The motorcycle gets large tank extensions which has a big 250 sticker and also below the tail-piece. Trellis frame is black, the subframe is orange and we expect the wheels to remain the same black in color.
KTM Duke 250 Chassis, suspension and brakes
Trellis frame, adjustable front forks, adjustable rear monoshock is on offer. Sadly and something we told you earlier that the bike will come with MRF tyres not Metzeler tyres which are in export models. Metzeler are limited to Duke 390 only.
KTM Duke 250 Price and Launch
Prices for the 250 Duke stand at Rs. 1.73 Lakhs ex-showroom Delhi. We told you it is going to be priced at RS. 1.95 lakhs on-road
KTM Duke 250 Engine And Specification
The engine is the highlight as it makes 31 PS of power and 24 Nm of torque from its engine. The motor is the same 4-valve liquid cooled, single spark engine with DOHC which is based on the 390 and not the 200 so expect taller gearing, more refinement and touring capabilities. The motorcycle gets slipper clutch too.
KTM Duke 250 Safety and Features
ABS is NOT being offered with the motorcycle. Feature list will include the old speedometer with new tell-tale lights, fuel efficiency parameters and slightly different look to make things fresh and yet keep cost in check. Switches continue to be back lit and there is AHO on offer.
