The KTM Duke 250 is one of the best quarter litre naked sports bikes in India. Its engine is refined with fast performance, & the features list is enough to put the bikes of double the cost to shame. However, it is expensive. You can easily get bigger engine bikes that offer almost double its performance.

    • Most refined engine in the Duke series of models
    • Powerful & fast performance overall
    • Design is funky & modern with youthful appeal
    • Braking power is very powerful
    • Ride & handling combo is well tuned for enthusiasts

  • Should I buy the 250 Duke?

    The KTM Duke 250 is punch-packed pocket-rocket naked sports bike. It is based on the design theme of the Duke 390 but with a less powerful engine. The 250 Duke also happens to offer the most refined & linear engine in the whole of Duke series. It is one of the best all-rounder bikes in this segment. We recommend it to buyers. They want a good mix of speed, refinement, and fuel economy with a big bike feel. It is a much cheaper option than the Duke 390 at a sacrifice of a few features & less power.

    Design, Comfort, & Quality 8
    • The Duke 250 is designed similar to the Duke 390. It carries the similar aggressive streetfighter naked design like the 390. The new Duke 250 has sharp fuel tank extensions, new LED headlight, & a new fuel tank design. The overall enhancements have made its road presence more recognizable than the outgoing model. It looks sharp, aggressive, & youthful in design & styling.
    • Due to its naked sports bike riding posture, it is not a very comfortable bike. With that said, short city commutes feel comfortable due to its lightweight and easy handling. But, if your commutes are long or you plan a long ride, the hard seat and the upright riding position will tire you often. The 800mm seat height is helpful for short riders to control the bike in city.
    • The quality of the Duke 250 is typical KTM. There are no panels gaps, the plastic used is of higher grade, & it feels premium from every angle. But, there are some areas that require improvement in terms of quality. For example, the switchgear doesn’t feel very sturdy & so does the tail section underneath the taillight.

      ₹ 2.39 Lakh

      Another indirect rival of the Duke 250 is the Bajaj Dominar 400. While the Dominar has a much bigger engine, it is aggressively priced. In fact, the Dominar undercuts the Duke 250 in terms of pricing. The Dominar also offers more features like USD forks, twin-LCD display, & powerful LED lights. But, it is a sports tourer and hence due to its size & weight it is not as sharp as the Duke 250 in handling. Still, we recommend the Dominar 400 due to its value-for-money proportion.

      While the TVS Apache RTR 310 has a bigger engine than the Duke 250, both bikes are rivals due to the similar price bracket. The base variant of the Apache RTR 310 is hardly a few thousand costly than the Duke 250. It offers more punch, better performance, & loads of features. Out of the two, our easy pick is the Apache RTR 310 as it is better value for money in every sense. It also has more colour options and customization options.

      The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 is essentially the Duke 250 but with different clothes. Yes, both of these bikes are similar underneath the design. Both of these are powered via the same engine. However, Husqvarna has found less buyers due to its radical design. Also, the Husqvarna looks smaller on the road than the Duke 250. Out of the two, we recommend the Duke 250 due to its better ride, sharp handling, & popular design.

      It looks much sexier in the new colours than the outgoing model, on the other hand, a couple of changes with the accessories, shrouds, indicators or even the mirrors would have been better. Aesthetically pleasing visuals as the overall look is sleek and is also available in attractive color and designed well. It stand out from its stablemates with a more minimalist and streamlined appearance.
