Powering the new KTM Duke 250 is a 248.8cc, water-cooled, single-cylinder engine that outputs 31 BHP at 9,000 RPM and 24 Nm at 7,250 rpm. While power-torque figures are same as earlier, the engine now gets a DOHC layout and ultra hard, carbon-coated cam followers.
The 2017 KTM Duke 250 is built around a lightweight tubular trellis frame that has a bolt-on sub-frame. The engine continues to come mated to the same 6-speed manual gearbox as earlier. The 2017 Duke 250 features a disengageable, dual-channel Bosch ABS.
2017 KTM Duke 250 Price
Malaysia will be among the first few bike markets to get the updated Duke 250. We don’t see a huge price change, but do expect this bike to be slightly costlier than the outgoing model. Prices of the KTM Duke 250 2017 model could start at roughly RM18,288.00 (base price before GST). The updated Duke 250 will be locally assembled in Malaysia at the company’s Kedah facility. There are really slim chances of this bike making it to India.
2017 KTM Duke 250 Top Speed
|Top Speed||155 KMPH|
The previous generation Duke 250 is capable of hitting a top speed of around 150 KMPH. For the new 2017 model, we expect a true top speed of around 155 KMPH.
2017 KTM Duke 250 Design
The new Duke 250 takes several design cues from the updated 390. It features a similarly aggressive headlamp. However, it misses out on the split headlamp treatment. Also, while the new 390 gets a LED headlamp, the new 250 will have to make do with a halogen setup. It also gets really sharp tank panels and a sleeker tail. We are really happy with the way the new generation Duke models look. These bikes look a lot more modern now. The new 250 doesn’t get the TFT speedo console from the new 390. However, it does get a LCD speedo console. The seat is now better bolstered and should offer greater riding comfort.
