The BS6 KTM 250 DUKE is upgraded with “Supermoto” mode in its dual-channel ABS setup. With the advanced “Supermoto mode” which can be activated at the push of a button, thrill-seeking riders will love the added fun factor and extra racetrack control. 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 their 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. Now, chasing your thrill is just one touch away. With performance parts like open-cartridge upside-down WP forks, slipper clutch, and pre-load adjustable mono shocks the motorcycle promises to be nimble and to deliver a solid punch at 30PS power and 24Nm of torque.
The addition of the aggressively styled split LED headlamp with attractive DRL’s on the KTM 250 DUKE is a big highlight in this bike’s design and a clear referral to its big brother, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R. Practical as well as looking ultra-mean, it produces outstanding visibility for riding in low light or dark conditions.
