  • The KTM 250 Duke uses a combination of the 200's bits - tyres, engine electronics, meters etc - and the 390s new equipment - (base) engine, suspension, body and steel tank to create an interesting middle model

  • The 2017 KTM 250 Duke looks sharp and fresh from every angle. From this angle though, the thing that sticks out is the new side-slung exhaust. KTM could have styled it to look more like an OE unit. It sounds like the old KTMs did and the change in sound i

  • The new headlight is a dramatic design and it looks like something only a KTM could wear. The outershape and the DRLs look like the 390s LED unit but the main beam is a conventional halogen unit

  • Like all the Dukes, the KTM 250 Duke has a light and accurate cornering feel. The MRF tyres provide great grip and the new suspension makes the 250 Duke feel more secure at big leans too
