More importantly, KTM has just upgraded the design and power of this model to be able to satisfy customers who love this brand.

In terms of design, the KTM Duke 250 2019 continues to inherit a lot of appearance from the KTM 1290 Super Duke R elder brother, similar to what KTM Duke 390 has done. The overall look of this car is sharper than the previous version. The tail is also extended by KTM under the subframe, giving the car a slightly forward position. The driver when sitting always feels like turning the gas, breaking forward.
Although the headlights are still Halogen bulbs, they are designed with a very fancy big interface, different from the split design that Duke 390 owns. While the two sides are equipped with positioning DRL lights, the application of modern LED technology helps increase lighting capacity as well as better visual effects.
The bibs on both sides are shaped like the 1290R Super Duke, giving an extremely aggressive and sturdy look. However, the car still uses the old digital dashboard, not upgraded as full LCD as 390, but the fuel tank with 2 tones makes the car stand out more.
The saddle is divided into two floors and can be adjusted from 740 to 800 mm in height, very suitable for each person’s condition, even those under 1.6 m can also control. In addition, the saddle is slightly beveled making the seat feel more comfortable.
In addition, the trellis frame of the KTM Duke 250 with 2 contrasting black / orange paints, stretching from front to back creates a highlight for the body, more stylish than a naked bike.
The car’s exhaust system is located on the right instead of hiding under the previous version. However, the Duke 250’s exhaust neck continues to bend to the left of the cylinder barrel and then descends to the exhaust filter and muffler, causing heat to flow to the operator’s left leg and causing discomfort when drive for many hours.

In terms of safety, KTM continues to exert its advantage in this regard when equipping Duke 250 2019 with reverse-type suspension fork in front of 43 mm diameter, equivalent to the super sport KTM RC8. 1300 cc. While the single cylinder spring shock absorbers at the back carry WP brand quite famous.
The front brake of the car is a single disc, 320mm in diameter, while the rear disc has a size of 230mm and both brakes use Bybre pigs, sub-brand of the famous Brembo braking firm. In particular, KTM has increased the operational safety for Duke 250 2019 by adding double ABS brakes.
In addition, this model also incorporates the modern technology of Slipper Clutch (technology to prevent wheel lock when changing the gearshift) so that the driver can comfortably experience the speed breakthrough without having to worry.
