What’s new in the 3rd-gen KTM 250 Duke?

In terms of visual updates, the 250 Duke now comes with aggressive tank extensions, sporty looks and LED headlamp. Feature update consists of a 5-inch digital instrument cluster. This unit comes with smartphone connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation support and more. There is a USB Type C charging port as well.

Other updates include a ride-by-wire system and a quick shifter. Both of these are now part of the standard equipment.

Colour options of this bike include Electronic Orange and Creamy White. While bookings have commenced, the deliveries of the bike are expected soon.

Hardware on the KTM 250 Duke

KTM has equipped the 250 Duke with upside down front forks and an off-set rear monoshock. Braking duties are handled by disc brakes on both ends.

The bike uses a new two-piece frame and is equipped with wheels and brakes that reduce the overall weight of the bike. This has also resulted in a better power-to-weight ratio.
