After taking the wraps off the 2017 KTM 390 Duke at the EICMA motor show, KTM has now officially unveiled the 2017 KTM 250 Duke as well. Just like its larger displacement sibling, the KTM 250 Duke retains the new design language that is seen on all the new KTM Duke offerings.
In fact, it even shares a lot of its panels with the 2017 KTM 390 Duke. Up front, the KTM 250 Duke misses out on the split LED headlights in place of which you get a halogen setup. The TFT digital instrumentation has also been given a miss as it continues to get the orange LCD screen from the previous model.
At the heart of it is the same 248.8cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that is good for 31 horsepower and 24Nm torque. All the power is sent to the rear wheel with the help of a six-speed transmission. Suspension duties continue to be performed by upside down forks up front and a monoshock setup at the rear.
Other changes on the KTM 250 Duke include a newly designed swingarm and exhaust system. It continues to be fitted with a dual channel ABS which can be disengaged. The KTM 250 Duke is exclusively for the Southeast Asian markets and would not be sold in Europe or American markets.
