2017 KTM Duke 250 revealed. The naked street-fighter will comes with a 248.8cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, 4-strock enginewill develop 31 Hp at 9,000 rpm and 24m of peak torque at 7,250 rpm.
The engine is now cradled in the light tubular trellis frame with a bolt-on sub-frame, borrowed from its updated siblings, while being mated to the same, close-ratio 6-speed transmission. It’s still not clear whether the 250 Duke’s engine has been updated to meet Euro 4 emission norms or not.
The KTM 250 Duke, like its updated brethren, also comes with WP suspension up front as of Duke 200 and a new swing-arm design, an entirely new exhaust system, a dual-channel, disengageable Bosch ABS with a 4-piston caliper and 300 mm front disc diameter, along with 17 inch cast light alloy wheels wrapped around 110 mm wide (front) and 150 mm wide (rear) tires.
The 250 Duke misses out on the LED headlamp assembly from its updated siblings and gets a halogen headlamp with DRLs instead. It also misses out on the fancy TFT instrumentation, and makes do with a LCD cluster that displays engaged gear, fuel gauge and service reminder information, along with a shift light that flashes when it’s time to go for a higher gear.
