The 2017 KTM Duke 250 is powered by a 248.8 cc single cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine. The engine produces 30 PS of power and 24 Nm of torque and is coupled to a six-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch. The bike has a power-to-weight ratio of 185 PS/tonne.

The rear suspension utilizes WP mono shock absorber. The die-cast swingarm has been manufactured according to the same standards and principles as the one on the KTM 690 Duke R. It also features the side-sling exhaust which complies with the latest Euro 4 emission restrictions and sound regulations.

Just like the Duke 390, this bike also runs on 17-inch alloy wheels but uses tyres sourced from MRF which are 110 mm wide at the front and 150 mm at the rear.
