KTM 250 Duke - December 3, 2010, 09:31 PM

could be just the right size...


KTM plans 250 Duke



According to KTM president Stefan Pierer, the company is developing a 250 or 300cc version of the new KTM 125 Duke and says it should be ready in about 18 months. “We’re working on a 250cc up to 300cc single-cylinder engine, also four valves with twin overhead camshafts,” Pierer told Alan Cathcart. “This has more or less the same external dimensions so we can install it in the existing 125 Duke model platform, and thus be able to offer the level up in the model ladder to our customer as he gains experience.”

If they base it on the RC4 engine it should be good.

If Ironhorse is burdened with doing a rigorous, comprehensive test and review of this bike or say maybe a 2011 Beta 525 RS, I could probably be persuaded to do it.

I remember reading about the 125, and the major reaction was, make it a 250 and sell it in the US, Im glad that KTM listened. This would be a great additional option to the honda and the kawi.

How come it says 125 on the tank cover? FAKE?

because that is the 125

"the company is developing a 250 or 300cc version of the new KTM 125 Duke "

As soon as I get the 250 pics I'll break the embargo just for you.

You know I get you the cool stuff....
