KTM Duke 250 Review

24 May, 2024 10:27 AM

Detailed Review by Maxabout Team


KTM bikes are immensely popular among young buyers in India. The Austrian bike maker launched the 250 Duke in India in 2017 to fill the gap between 200 and 390. The bike sits in the middle of these two in terms of power, features and pricing. Continuing the KTM’s racing legacy, the bike made a prominent place in the Indian two-wheeler industry. The brand has made some tweaks to the bike in 2020. Let’s dive in to know all of its features and specifications.

KTM Duke 250 Design and Style

Built on KTM’s aggressive design language, the 250 Duke is a naked motorbike. The motorcycle's general design is similar to that of its elder sibling, the 390 Duke. The front profile has a sleek headlamp design with LED daytime running lights in the shape of a boomerang. The fuel tank is chiselled and has stylish extensions.

The exposed trellis frame lends the KTM 250 Duke a rugged appearance. The tail part also has a bolted frame painted in orange that looks fantastic. The side-mounted exhaust adds to the appearance of the motorbike. The tail section is stylish, thanks to the new LED taillight, split grip rails, and tail-tidy design. The black alloy wheels with orange stickers complement the entire appearance.

KTM Duke 250 Engine and Gearbox

Talking about power, this bike has a 249.07cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 4-stroke engine. This engine generates 31 hp power at 9,250 rpm and 25 Nm torque at 7,250 rpm. This engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission which provides a better computing experience.

KTM Duke 250 Brakes, Suspension and Tyres

In its front, 43mm WP USD forks have been given. At the same time, a 10-step adjustable WP mono-shock suspension has been given in its rear. Talking about braking features, a 320mm disc brake has been given in its front. At the same time, a 230mm disc brake has been given in its rear. The bike gets 17-inch alloy wheels with 110mm wide tires at the front and 150mm at the rear.

KTM Duke 250 Instrument Console

KTM has given a digital LCD instrument cluster in the new 250 Duke, which also offers navigation and Bluetooth connectivity. In addition to that, it also displays speedometer, tachometer, trip meter, odometer, clock, ABS light, LED indicator lights, fuel gauge, low fuel warning light, gear indicator, service reminder, low oil indicator, low battery indicator, gear shift light and engine check indicator.

Key Features of KTM Duke 250

New KTM 250 Duke gets features like USD Forks, Wide Tyres, Attractive Shades, Dual-Channel ABS to mention a few.

KTM Duke 250 Top Speed and Mileage

2024 KTM 250 Duke is good enough to sprint from 0-100 kmph in around 8.64 seconds. When it comes to the top speed and mileage of the motorcycle, you can expect it to reach 148 kmph along with around 30-35 kmpl of mileage under mixed riding conditions.

KTM Duke 250 Colour Options

At present, the New KTM 250 Duke street bike is available in 3 colour options in India -Ceramic White, Electric Orange, and Atlantic Blue.

KTM Duke 250 Price Range in India

The on-road pricing of the 2024 KTM Duke 250 in Delhi is Rs 2.77 lakh, Rs 2.86 lakh in Mumbai, Rs 2.80 lakh in Kolkata, and Rs 2.84 lakh in Chennai. The prices listed above are estimates; please contact your local KTM dealership for an actual on-road price quote in your city.

Ex-showroom Price & On-Road Price

Ex-Showroom Price is the Manufacturing Cost of the vehicle + Dealer/Seller Profit + GST (Goods and Service Tax) + Transportation Charges (from the manufacturing plant to the dealership). The On-Road Price, on the other hand, is the real amount you pay to the dealership to make the car roadworthy. It includes Ex-Showroom Price in your city + RTO Charges (Vehicle Registration) + One Time Road Tax + Insurance Charges. The On-Road Price also includes some optional things like if you opt for Genuine Accessories and Extended Warranty while buying a vehicle. Please note that the On-Road Price varies a lot across different states in India due to different percentages for the State Registration Charges.

KTM Duke 250 Competitors

At present, Yamaha FZS 25 and Suzuki Gixxer 250 are in competition with New KTM 250 Duke in the Indian market. Although both these bikes are cheaper than the 250 Duke, their torque and power output is less than the 250 Duke.

Verdict- Should You Buy it?

When it comes to power, the KTM 250 Duke’s torque and power outputs are the maxima and best figures in the 250cc segment. Apart from that, the appeal of this bike cannot be seen in any other 250cc segment bikes. The split headlamp and integrated DRLs are some plus points. The motorcycle comprises a good braking experience with a dual-channel ABS system and is all set in the department of safety and comfort. The bike comes in a sporty look and is a perfect buy for the youth.

Questions and Answers

Most Popular Answers for KTM Duke 250
What is the ground clearance of the KTM Duke 250?
27 July 2023 07:10

The ground clearance of the KTM Duke 250 is 151 mm. This measurement refers to the distance between the lowest point of the bike (usually the undercarriage or exhaust) and the ground. A higher ground clearance can be advantageous when riding over uneven or rough road, as it reduces the risk of the bike scraping against obstacles.

Which one is the best KTM Duke 250 or Dominar?
15 January 2023 03:38

The KTM 250 Duke is a great option for those looking for performance and convenience. It has a 248.8 cc engine that generates 30 PS @ 9000 rpm and a torque of 24 Nm @ 7500 rpm. The price tag of Rs. 2,28,851 is a great deal for what you get. 

On the other hand, the Bajaj Dominar 250 is a great sports tourer and is fit to purpose. It has a 250cc motor that works beautifully with the comfortable touring ergonomics. The price tag of Rs. 1,66,355 makes it a great entry-level option. Ultimately, the choice depends on your budget and preference. We would suggest you to take a test ride of both the bikes before making a final decision.

Best 200cc Bike in India

Rahul PS | One year ago
helpful 1

Currently i bought a Duke 200 BS6 2 weeks ago and its a good decision to buy. I am driving between 55 and 65 and getting a mileage of 40.1 km/l currently which is a good one in this segment. The headlight visibility is good. Initial acceleration is also good. I recommend for Duke 200 and above version to use premium petrol as the compression rate is 11.3. Overall experience, I am totally satisfied with the bike. As on the cons side the ground clearance is really now especially when you are carrying an pillion rider, there is an high chance of hitting the lower part in the bumper.

Best Features: Dual Channel ABS, DRL

Pros: Looks, Acceleration and Mileage

Cons: Ground Clearance

Worst bike when it comes to maintainance

Sagar - | 3 years ago
helpful 3

This review is based on personal experience. KTM Duke 200 is One of the worst bikes when it comes to maintenance. I feel I have spent the same amount on petrol and maintenance. For 15,000km Petrol = 36,000 (bike mileage 30km/LTR) Petrol price - 75 (AVG) Maintenance Service = 3 times x 3500 = 10500 (min) Fork oil seal replacement= 2500 Starter motor stator coil replacement =3500 Chain sprocket replacement= 3500 Oil seal replacement = 1500 Start on button replacement = 1200 Fuel sensor replacement= 1000 Clutch wire replacement = 200 Chain lubrication For every 500kms = 100 I.e for 15,000kms = 3000 Seat cover (because seat started cracking) = 800 Both tires = 7000 Total = 34,700 I can even show bill for all the things I have mentioned above. Bike is not designed for Indian roads. It's just an overpriced low quality bike.

Best Features: Nothing to tell

Pros: Acceleration

Cons: Bike it self

Varun Bhat | 4 years ago

KTM has built a good bike, but it's too aggressive look and can't hold more interest for long time. Good bike for superbike beginners

Best Features: TFT display, led headlamp, orange color, look, sound,

Pros: Value for money, power, pickup, design, metzler tyres

Cons: Seat height, not comfortable, low fuel tank, poor customer service (not all the places).

1st of its kind !!

Atiqur Rahman | 7 years ago
helpful 0

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!!

I am Stevin.I have recently bought a 2017 duke 250 delivered to me on May 20th 2017,after a 1month delay.From the very 1st day my bike was showing ,engine shutting off.So i contacted service center,they told me it will be fixed gradually when bike is used,they told a time period of 1-2days for that.The problem is still alive.After the 4th morning my bike was not starting up?.So i contacted the service service boy was there at my home to check it,which was a good move.The problem was that the battery power drained,so they fixed it.I told them about the engine shutting off issue,they told me to visit service center after one week,so they could take a better look and identify what's the problem.The very next day my meter was dead?.I told them that too,So they told that the will replace the meter,but needed a 2week time,because the part was being on way from Pune..Iam fed up with this situation..Im starting to hate KTM for that??

It is wrong to think that only college boys and rich people sons like 200 to 300 cc bikes.Manufacturers are thinking like that and so they are making with ugly sports looks and with inconvinient handel and back seat and with aquard up side fuel tank.just look at royalenfield bike .most of commuters are using royal enfields for street ridings in towns and cities.due to bad shapes and inconvinient bodies most of bikes ns200rs200 ,220f krv2 are not being sold out more .tvs ok so make bikes with dual shape and give chance for... to buy theire choice of bike.

@fasil kalliyath duke is a bike made by a company called KTM, which is one of the leading bikes company and @prayag barve duke is not a bajaj made bike, it's a ktm made bike. . .

This is one of the best bikes, KTM should launch it buy it's own to enhance it's brand value and the price of 250CC should be around Rs. 1,50,000/-.
