KTM Duke 250 Riding review


The riding experience is way better than the first generation duke 250. for a KTM the seats are pretty comfortable, they are adequately cushioned, you get slightly rear-set footpegs, the overall seating stance is comfortable so you get straight riding posture. removing all the stress from your back with these wide handlebars there is no stress on your shoulders as well you get a lot of room on both the seats for the rider and the pillion that makes it a good companion for the long rides. you might feel slight discomfort when you're riding on off roads for a very very long time but other than that this is a good bike. it is only 50cc bigger than the duke 200 but the power and torque figures are amazing it brings the best of two worlds it also maintains that balance the power is not too high or too low same goes with the torque and the fuel efficiency. The bike is very refined with the bs6 in place the vibrations have been subsided the first-generation duke 250 might have missed out on the KTMdna but this one makes proper use of it. The power delivery is linear, you get a very good mid-range punch however it is slightly less than last year's duke 250 but it is now more close to mother nature the motorcycle responds very well to the throttle and has that KTM's aggressiveness. it gives you a good response on the passing speeds between the fourth fifth and sixth gear don't forget the point when I said it maintains a balance in features so along with the KTM 6-speed gearbox which is very smooth to transit it gets a slipper clutch in place which is on a lighter side. and is very smooth to operate so you won't feel the pain or fatigue if you have to use this bike on long rides the slipper clutch helps you in aggressive shifting whenever needed.

The brakes are absolutely amazing with a bigger disc brake in the front and the fiber radial calipers, the stopping power is very good and you can easily come to a halt without skidding your bike as the abs take care of it . the front brakes so you get efficient and confident braking with the duke 250. last but not the least making this bike really a KTM are the wp suspensions they are very well tuned so they are stiff on high speeds .they also manage well on off roads doing a good job in making your ride comfortable which is a very important aspect when you plan to take this duke on a long ride.
