KTM, India’s fastest growing premium motorcycle brand, has upgraded the KTM 250 DUKE. The quarter-liter champion has been a strong player in the performance motorcycle segment since its launch. KTM India has launched the Duke 250 BS6 motorcycle in the Indian market. The new (2020) KTM Duke 250 BS6 is offered with a price tag of Rs 2.09 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). Apart from the BS6-compliant engine update, KTM has also introduced a number of new features on the 2020 Duke 250 as well.
