250 Duke

The 250 Duke was unveiled by KTM at the Tokyo Motor Show recently along with the RC250. Manufacturing of all these bikes has already begun at Bajaj-KTM’s facility in Chakan, Pune. Although there is no confirmation from the company’s side regarding its launch in India, the rumours are very strong and the announcement could be made at next year’s Auto Expo. The 250 Duke would be a perfect bike to fill the void between the 200 and 390 and with 250cc bikes from their competitors like Yamaha on its way, the 250 Duke would serve as a good addition to KTM’s lineup. The 250cc motor produces 31.3 PS @ 9,000 RPM and a peak torque of 24Nm @ 7,250 rpm.

  • Expected Price: INR 1.5 lakhs (ex-showroom)
