Here’s how KTM’s 250 Duke stacks up against the Benelli TNT 25.

For people looking for more options in KTM's Duke range, the bikemaker has added the 250 Duke to its line-up. The bike will sit above the 200 Duke and below the pricier 390 Duke. The new addition comes with some very attractive features but faces proper competition from Benelli’s TNT 25. Here is a detailed comparison of both bikes with their pros and cons.

The Benelli TNT 25, at 2080mm, is longer compared to the 250 Duke, which stretches only up to 2009mm. This gives the 250 Duke a steering advantage over the other as its more compact shape will be easier to ride on city roads. The TNT 25 has a much slimmer frame measuring about 810mm, while the Duke gets considerably higher ground clearance.

Engine and gearbox
Both bikes come with the same 249cc, single-cylinder engine, but the 250 Duke manages to outdo the other with more torque. The TNT 25 tends to peak earlier, while the Duke has more power in its mid-range. The 250 Duke is a better choice for steady urban riding.

Both bikes are priced in the same range as each other, with the 250 Duke costing a little lesser at ₹1.73 lakh. It even comes with slipper clutch and DRLs, unlike the TNT 25. Though the TNT 25 also comes with other features such as stickers, helmets and CNC personal customization parts, it is the 250 Duke that fares better comparatively.
