The KTM 250 Duke is the newest kid on the block, and its aggressive pricing has attracted a lot of young buyers already. The 250 Duke features similar design language to the new 2017 KTM 390 Duke.
The KTM 250 Duke comes with a 248.7cc, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that makes 30bhp and 24Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The Duke 250 weighs 161kg, making it one of the lightest motorcycles in this segment.
Another new motorcycle in the 250cc segment is the Yamaha FZ 25. The FZ 25 looks similar to the FZ-S, but upon closer inspection, the difference is evident, such as the headlight design, front cowl, and the exhaust.
The Yamaha FZ 25 is powered by a 249cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that makes 20bhp and 20Nm of torque, with the help of a 5-speed gearbox. The Yamaha FZ25 has an advantage over its competitors regarding pricing but falls behind on performance.
The Yamaha Fazer 25 is the faired version of the FZ25 and it is branded as a touring motorcycle. The motorcycle features an aerodynamic front fairing stylish LED DRLs and LED headlight. Rest all the components are identical to the FZ25. The Fazer 25 is an excellent package when it comes to long-distance touring and highway cruising.
The Yamaha Fazer 25 draws power from a 249cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine producing 20bhp and 20Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The Fazer 25 is also a good motorcycle for daily commuting with the good low and mid-range torque.
