KTM updated its motorcycle lineup to BS-VI emissions standards in January this year while also rolling out new colour options, for example for the KTM 250 Duke. The motorcycle now gets yet another upgrade in the form of an LED headlamp with DRL styled much like the 390 Duke. It also gets a dual-channel ABS with KTM’s Supermoto mode and new colour options – Dark Galvano and Silver Metallic. The BS6 KTM 250 Duke was priced earlier ar Rs 2,04,698 (ex-showroom) and has now been revised to Rs 2,09,280 (ex-showroom Delhi).
Like the 390 Duke, the BS6 KTM 250 Duke has the ‘Supermoto’ mode in its dual-channel ABS setup which can be activated at the push of a button. Most usable on a racetrack, when engaged the Supermoto system only controls ABS on the front brake and is switched off for the rear disc to allow wheel lock.
