The 2017 KTM Duke 250 is shaped like the 2017 KTM Duke 390 but gets a regular halogen headlamp. The fuel tank can now store 13.5-litre of petrol, up from the 11-litre unit in the outgoing model. The 2017 Duke 250 tips the scales (dry) at 153 kg (up from 139 kg). The seat height has increased from 800 mm to 822 mm.
The powertrain is a 248.8 cc single cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected mill which, coupled to a six-speed gearbox, is capable of producing 30 PS of power at 9,000 rpm and 24 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. It is not yet confirmed whether the 2017 KTM Duke 250 in Indonesia will get ride by wire technology (the Indian version does not get it).
The instrumentation too continues to be the old LCD unit and not the swanky TFT screen seen in the 2017 KTM Duke 390. The Duke 250 though will get a slipper clutch and ABS in Indonesia.
