KTM introduces Duke 250 and RC 250

Take an RC390 and drop the displacement to 250CC, change the gear ratios and lower the price. Enter the RC250.

Now, do the same thing to the Duke 390 and you have the Duke 250. Designed with the European, Japanese and Indian markets in mind these bikes could be a huge seller in other markets...  but we may not see them there.

We also probably won’t see these beauties in the US of A either, but we aren't sure just yet.

Introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show [correction: the Tokyo Motorcycle Show], there's no official word on sale locations or pricing.

According to KTM the bike will make 25 ft/lb of torque and 30 hp, meaning it'll be a class leader in terms of its power to weight ratio.
