KTM Duke 250 Overview
The Austrian motorcycle maker, KTM has launched the latest quarter-litre naked monster, 250 Duke in the Indian market which is the newest of the KTM bikes in India. The 250 Duke is based on the platform which is shared from the bigger 390 Duke. It shares the same trellis frame, looks and body panels which are seen on it’s bigger sibling but lacks the new multifunction TFT display and better tyres when compare to the latter. It also houses the 1290 SuperDuke inspired front headlamp and looks which are far better than any other motorcycle in its competition. This the third installment in the present Duke series in India, alongside the 200 Duke and the 390 Duke.
KTM Duke 250 Engine & Transmission
The bike comes with a 248.8 cc single cylinder, water cooled engine that delivers 30 bhp of maximum power at 9000 rpm and 24Nm of peak torque comes at 7500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission. The bike weighs just 139kgs dry and at this weight, it boasts a tremendous power to weight ratio of 225 PS/Tonne. This power to weight ratio helps the bike to accelerate and gain pace in an incredibly short time and hence the bike is quick enough to shame all the bikes in its competition.
KTM Duke 250 Mileage
The bike should be good enough to deliver a mileage of around 30km/LTR on mixed city and highway riding conditions.
KTM Duke 250 Performance and Handling
The bike has been equipped with a host of features like WP upside suspension at the front, Slipper clutch for smoother and safer downshifts, Fuel-injection system for smoother power delivery and throttle response, trellis frame and disc brakes (at both ends). It has also been given a multifunction LCD display that shows average speed, fuel consumption, distance to empty, high coolant temperature, time, ODO rating, RPM and much more. For the Indian market, KTM has decided not to add ABS to the package to limit the manufacturing costs
