KTM 250 Adventure Highlights

KTM has increased the price of its most affordable adventure tourer in India, the 250 Adventure. It is now dearer by Rs 3,667, and is priced at Rs Rs 2,51,923 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Apart from the ADV, the prices of the rest of the lineup have been revised too.  


KTM 250 Adventure Price

The KTM 250 Adventure has been priced at Rs 2,51,923 (ex-showroom, Delhi), undercutting its bigger sibling, the KTM 390 Adventure, by around Rs 58,000.


KTM 250 Adventure Features:

The KTM 250 Adventure’s features include an all-digital LCD instrument console with details such as a gear position indicator, range, avg fuel efficiency, ABS, and two tripmeters. It also gets a 12V charging port below the instrument console. In a bid to cut cost, the 250 Adventure misses out on features such as a traction control system, TFT screen, smartphone pairing, quickshifter and LED headlight. 


KTM 250 Adventure Engine: 

Powering the KTM 250 ADV is the same 249cc, liquid-cooled engine as seen on the KTM 250 Duke. The motor produces 30PS and 24Nm. It features a 6-speed gearbox and even the gear ratios are similar to the 250 Duke. In comparison, the KTM 390 ADV’s motor is rated at 43.5PS at 9000rpm and 37Nm at 7000rpm. 


KTM 250 Adventure Suspension & Brakes: 

The KTM 250 Adventure features a non-adjustable USD front fork and a WP Apex monoshock. Suspension travel is 170mm at the front and 177mm at the rear while the ground clearance is 200mm. Seat height is quite high at 855m, while the 250 ADV is 2kg lighter than its older sibling at 156kg (dry weight). The 250 Adventure sports MRF MoGrip Meteor off-road tyres unlike the Metzeler rubber as seen on the 390 ADV. Stopping power is offered by disc brakes on either end with dual-channel ABS.  The rider has the option to disengage the ABS system on the rear wheel for better control while off-roading.

250 Adventure Expert Review

KTM has made its adventure lineup more accessible with the 250 Adventure. The quarter-litre adventure motorcycle undercuts its 390 sibling by over Rs 50,000, making it one of the more affordable options in the segment. It shares the same heart with the 250 Duke and the foundations with the 390 Adventure. So, is this combination the perfect balance we need in a baby adventure-tourer? 

Design and Features

It might be the smaller (engine-wise) of the two KTM adventure bikes in India but the 250 Adventure still looks properly big. The design has been carried forward from the 390 Adventure with no changes to the body panels whatsoever. The only visual cue helping you differentiate the two siblings is the halogen headlamp on the 250. It doesn’t get the LEDs from the 390 in order to save costs.

We are particularly impressed with the matte finish on the large 14.5-litre fuel tank. The metal tank has this lovely sort of smooth plastic coating on it, making it one of the few premium touches that you can find on this bike. 


Since there is no connectivity system here, it doesn’t get the switch cubes from the 390, which are better in feel and to operate, but rather the same switches from the 250 Duke.

We were hoping that the same sensibilities of the 250 Duke would carry forward on the ADV, which to a certain extent are evident. The motor is free revving, zippy and fairly tractable. Plus, the clutch action is very light and gear shifts are slick. But the 250 Adventure is not really a quick motorcycle. Considering the performance on tap, it is just a second quicker than the Royal Enfield Himalayan to 100kmph. That’s a motorcycle that makes 6PS less and weighs 22kg more. It is neck and neck with the Himalayan in roll-on acceleration too, which is quite a surprise.

Out on the highway, the engine is quite happy thrumming along at 100-110kmph, with a light buzz felt at the pegs. What is a bit of an issue is the lack of drive present below 6,000rpm. If you have to slow down to get past highway traffic, you will have to work the gearbox to make up for lost momentum. It is something that you could live with but considering that this was not as much of an issue on its Duke counterpart, here it feels a bit disappointing.

City fuel efficiency


Highway fuel efficiency


Fuel tank capacity


The 250 motor remains one of the more frugal options in the Austrian bikemaker’s stable. It delivers great fuel efficiency in the city, and its highway score isn’t too bad either. The extra litre of fuel carrying capacity over the Duke will definitely allow you to extend your highway stint.

The motor’s friendly mannerisms also make it better suited for fast rough road usage than the 390. The power is delivered in a linear manner, allowing the rider to remain in firm control of the bike. Of course, it’s far from a trail bike, with the lack of low-end torque being one of the crucial factors limiting its off-roading potential.


Braking and Handling

R: 130/80-17

Make: MRF MoGrip Meteor FM2

Like we mentioned earlier, the 250 Adventure isn’t a trail bike which can tackle slow technical terrain with ease. But show it a fast rally stage and it’s in its element. This is thanks to the stiff suspension it borrows from the 390 Adventure, with no change in tune either. So to get the best out of this suspension setup, you have to ride the bike fast. And when coupled with the friendly power delivery of the motor, it is actually possible to do so, making it a better toy than the 390 to tackle rough roads with.

This same harsh suspension setup is a bother on highways though. You have to be vigilant all the time, being on the lookout for any possible road imperfections. However small they may be, you have to avoid potholes or bumps on this bike. Otherwise, you will get a mighty jolt up your backside. This in our opinion just beats the purpose of buying an adventure tourer.

Braking distances

KTM 250 Adventure





Stopping distances are good, despite the 250 Adventure running without sintered brake pads. We would have liked more feel from the system, especially when initiating the braking procedure. Braking progression is good with no signs of squirminess from the specially-developed dual-purpose MRF Meteor tyres. ABS intervention is pretty controlled with switchable ABS, or Off Road ABS mode as KTM calls it, providing extra braking confidence for off-road riding.



Safety and Features

The 250 Adventure is a simpler motorcycle than the 390. There is no LED headlight here, no colour TFT screen, no Bluetooth connectivity and no electronic rider aids like traction control and quickshifter. The halogen headlight is what was there on the previous 250 Duke and now is found on the 200 Duke and 125 Duke. The LED DRLs flank the halogen headlamp with a nice thick black bezel around it. 

The LCD console has the same shape as the 390’s TFT display. The readouts are laid in a similar fashion with a circular bar type tachometer surrounding the digital speedo. You get trip and fuel consumption related data as well as a clock, engine temperature gauge and fuel gauge. While Bluetooth connectivity is a miss, the 250 Adventure has a provision for a GPS/phone mount. A 12V charging socket is also present.

We aren’t going to moan about the absence of traction control and quickshifter here as the 250 is clearly meant to be the more affordable KTM adventure motorcycle. Plus, the traction control system didn’t really enhance the riding experience on the 390, and was somewhat of a deterrent to off-roading rather than a useful feature. So, we are glad they didn’t include it here.
