The soon-to-be-launched updated BS6 KTM 250 Duke will be priced at Rs 2.09 lakh. This mildly tweaked version will cost around Rs 4,000 more than the model it replaces; the outgoing 250 Duke was priced at Rs 2.05 lakh. The BS6 version was first launched at Rs 2 lakh, but later witnessed a price hike that brought it up to Rs 2.05 lakh.
With this latest update, the KTM 250 Duke gets the full LED headlight seen on the more expensive 390 Duke and 390 Adventure. This headlight replaces the older unit that had halogen bulbs with LED DRLs. The instrument cluster, however, continues to be the LCD unit, with the TFT colour dash that’s found on its larger siblings having been given a miss.
There appears to be no other changes, and the bike continues to use the same 248.8cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that makes 30hp. Despite the 250cc segment heating up quite a bit, the 250 Duke continues to be the most powerful bike in its class, alongside the Husqvarna twins, which share the same engine.
