It  gets a new 5-inch TFT screen, which is a big update over the current KTM 390 Duke.

It can adjust the illumination according to the ambient light. The BS IV compliant bike gets Ride By Wire. The engine is the same 373cc unit which produces 44 bhp of peak power and 37 Nm of max torque. The gearbox comes with  6-speed transmission with a slipper clutch.

The 2017 KTM 250 Duke features the same styling as the new 390 Duke but doesn’t get the LED headlamp. It also misses out on the TFT screen and sports an updated  LCD console to keep cost low. Powering the bike is a 250cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine delivering 30PS of power and 24Nm of peak torque. The frame and cycle parts are similar to the new 390 Duke except for the front disc brake which is smaller at 300mm dia, as opposed to the 320mm unit on the 390 Duke. Local manufacturing of the bike has helped keep the cost low and the motorcycle highly competitive in the market. The bike is priced at Rs 1,73,000 (Ex showroom Delhi) for the non-ABS version.
