Top things about KTM250
Here comes a list of top things about the KTM250.
The adventure launch
The bike targets at making the adventure offering from KTM affordable. This will be completely loaded and will bear a slew of electronic aids which are best for on-road and off road capabilities. This will skip on that and might bare the minimum bike with the same looks and design. Coming to its launch, is expected to be done together with that of KTM 390 Adventure.
250 adventure price range
The price of the bike is expected to be around 2.30 lakhs. This puts it above the regular Duke 250 by around rs 40000. The cost of the bike is going to make it much more expensive offering when the royal Enfield Himalayan is considered. But some speed junkies will avoid it because of its weight. But buyers are not going to have any argument on price as it’s strong to be in the price range and fans are seriously going to love it to run on any road they like.
Engine is always an important part of any bike. So the engine of KTM 250 adventure is same as that of Duke 250. This doesn’t bear any kind of mechanical changes when it comes to engine power figure. This is going to make more torque by using bigger rear sprocket. The gearing for the reason might get tuned to some different level so that the bike gets wider torque band. Now the engine over all produces a power of 31 bhp and the torque is 21Nm. This is not much with engine monitoring gizmos that is more in KTM390 adventure.
Motorcycle looks same as like any other vehicle. But the suspension changes to long travel by WP. These will be upside – down fork which is very skeptical on the adventure motorcycle. Its adjustability is given for preload a rear and the front suspension which is non adjustable. The bike skips on these adjustability factors to make it quite accessible. This bears slightly higher seat height than the KTM 250 Duke but it will be bigger in size. The seats are long and comfortable with the exhaust bike side mounted and rear grab handle will have top box mounts.
