KTM has upgraded the 250 Duke, with the highly-desired, aggressively-styled full LED headlamp unit with DRLs the same as the one offered on the Duke 390 and launched it in the Indian market. With the new update, the 250 Duke has witnessed a bump in the price which will now be INR 2.09 Lakhs. Apart from the sportier appeal of the new headlights, it is also said to produce outstanding visibility for riding in low light or dark conditions as per the company.
The updated 250 Duke gets a dual-channel ABS with Supermoto mode which can be activated at the push of a button. When engaged, the Supermoto system only controls ABS on the front brake. Rear brake pressure is entirely up to the rider’s right foot, allowing the rider to push his/her riding skills to the absolute limit. The “contactless cranking” in the KTM 250 Duke feature enables one-touch start (early cold start) which makes sure the engine is fired up with a single touch of the electric starter button.
Apart from the changes mentioned above, the 250 Duke is the same, although it will now come in all-new color schemes– Dark Galvano & Silver Metallic in the Indian market.
