KTM Duke 250 is the most powerful single cylinder quarter litre motorcycle.

KTM India has in a surprising move launched the 2017 KTM Duke 250. Positioned between the new KTM Duke 200 and KTM Duke 390, the Duke 250 misses out on several premium features seen in the Duke 390.

The 2017 KTM Duke 250 is positioned between the KTM Duke 200 and KTM Duke 390.

Bearing the shape of the KTM Duke 390, the 2017 KTM Duke 250 gets the same 13.4-litre fuel tank. The die-cast swingarm is produced according to the same standards and principles as the one on the 690 Duke R. The bike is suspended over upside down forks by WP up front and a monoshock in the rear with adjustable preload. It tips the scales at 161 kg (wet).

Brakes include a 300 mm disc in the front with 4 piston callipers and a 230 mm unit in the rear. ABS is sadly not present in the 2017 Duke 250. Tyres too have been sourced from MRF and include a 110/70 up front and a 150/60 in the rear with 17-inch wheels. Headlamp continues to be halogen unit.

The instrumentation console is the same LCD unit seen in the Duke 200 and not the swanky TFT from Duke 390. The 2017 KTM Duke 250 gets an entirely new exhaust with a link pipe and silencer. Colour options include white and orange. The exhaust system is a side slung aluminium unit similar to the Duke 390.

Powering the 2017 KTM Duke 200 is a 248.8 cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected mill which traces its origins to the Duke 390. Coupled to a six-speed gearbox and a slipper clutch, the engine is capable of producing 30 PS at 9,000 rpm and 24 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm.

The 2017 KTM Duke 250 has been priced at INR 173,000 and deliveries of the motorcycle will begin soon while bookings are now on.
