The quarter-litre hooligan gets LED headlamps, dual channel ABS with Supermoto mode and new colours
The KTM 250 Duke, the most performance-focused naked in its class, now gets some swanky new additions that further amplify its appeal. The naked now gets full LED headlamps, dual channel ABS with Supermoto mode and two new colours – Dark Galvano and Silver Metallic. At Rs 2.09 lakh, the price of the 250 Duke has gone up by about Rs 9,000.
The Supermoto mode for the ABS is something enthusiasts will rejoice, especially because it disengages the ABS on the rear wheel, allowing the rider to slide around for extra fun and push the limits of the motorcycle on the race track. The 250 Duke also gets what KTM calls ‘contactless cranking’ enabled by the one touch start that ensures the firing of engine in one touch.
Speaking on the launch, Sumeet Narang, President (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto Ltd. said “KTM 250 DUKE is a standout quarter litre motorcycle available for enthusiasts in the premium sport motorcycle segment. The vehicle is greatly inspired by KTM’s unparalleled racing legacy and comes with high-tech race ready engine & components. As a quarter litre KTM it offers the best in biking performance and urban practicality. These upgrades on the KTM 250 DUKE will further enhance its appeal amongst the core biking enthusiasts”
