KTM India has launched the 250 Duke along with the 390 Duke in the country. The quarter-litre high-performance naked streetfighter has been launched at a price of 2.39 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), and is available for booking across India at a price of 4,499. The third-generation KTM 250 Duke comes with a host of updates on the mechanical front aiding in better performance.

Available in two different colour options: Electronic Orange and Ceramic White, the new KTM 250 Duke motorcycle features several updates on the same lines as the new KTM 390 Duke. The 250 Duke now comes with ride-by-wire and quick-shifter technology as standard. Thanks to a new two-piece chassis and a new set of wheels and brakes, the new KTM 250 Duke weighs less than its predecessor. KTM claims that these upgrades have allowed the third-generation 250 Duke to achieve the highest-ever power-to-weight ratio.
