The 250 Duke shows its racing genes with 30Ps power, slipper clutch and an ultralight chassis which with the newly developed bolt-on subframe allows the 250 Duke to slice through bends and traffic with precision making it more commuter friendly.  The 250 Duke has been introduced in White and Orange color schemes.
