Complete details of Duke 125 Motorcycle

Launched globally in November 2012.
KTM Duke 125 is not yet available in India.

Duke 125 may be the lightest sportbike that one could buy. It is the least powered motorcycle from the Austrian makers. This Duke is equipped with some of the advanced features of big bikes. It was said to be the first 125cc bike to fit ABS system in 2013, when it was launched in the global market. The latest Duke 125 is based on the design principles of their flag bearer Super Duke 1290. Current version is again the first motorcycle to feature LED headlight, TFT display unit and integrated connectivity in a 125cc bike.

It is powered by the 124.7cc, single cylinder, 4-stroke engine. The mill delivers a maximum power of 14.7 bhp and fair amount of torque. Engine is mated with 6-speed gearbox, which works with the help of mechanically actuated wet multi-disc plate. Bosch EMS controls and monitors the entire working of the engine. The bike is completely built around the trellis-frame, which is found in other KTM bikes. Suspension system consists of USD forks at the front and die-cast swingarm with progressive spring at the rear.

First Impression Review

The Duke 125 is the youngest offering of the famous KTM Duke family. It is regarded as one of the basic and affordable entry-level sports bikes in the current market. The bike is equally good in dynamics and technicality with advanced features. Latest generation Duke 125 features the same styling and design principles of the mighty Duke 390.

The Styling and Features
The Duke 125 may be the lightest sports bike that you could ever find in the international market. Unlike the previous variant, this one looks good as it drives. The makers have used the same structural design with the dual tone steel trellis frame. They have retained the same fuel tank, split seats, rear light, exhaust and grab recess of the Duke 390 and 250. The bike features the same predatory stance of the mighty Super Duke R 1290, 390 and 250.

Duke 125 LED headlight

The aggressive LED headlamp with LED DRLs at the front gives an impressive identity to the vehicle. Eventhough it is a 125cc motorcycle, we can see high-quality cast parts and steel fuel tank with 13.4-litre capacity in this Duke. From sides, the exposed steel tubular frame with aluminium swingarm has been painted in black and orange colours, which looks appealing and elegant. Moreover, Duke 125 features LCD instrument display with easy to navigate menu switch and KTM My Ride smartphone connectivity.

The Engine and Performance
The Duke 125 is powered by single cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts made with the latest manufacturing technique and production material currently available in the market. The engine gets balancer shaft for smooth and convenient operation. This Euro4 compliant engine delivers a maximum power of 15 Bhp and top torque of 12 Nm. Transmission duties are done by the same 6-speed gearbox found in the Duke 390 & 250. The ingenious intake and exhaust system makes this bike nimble and punchy. The advanced fuel injection system helps the Duke 125 to achieve high performance with minimal consumption of fuel. Along with that, the regulated catalytic converter produces minimal emission and meets the Euro4 norms quite easily.

Suspension, Chassis and Braking
The KTM has been using their popular lightweight steel trellis frame for their entire Duke clan. Cornering and maneuvering are quite easy with the Duke 125. The die-cast swingarm attached to the chassis is based on the same standards and quality of the Duke 690. Moreover, the directly linked WP shock absorber with progressive spring offers maximum comfort and safety to the rider. At the front, it gets high-quality USD forks again with WP shock absorber. At the braking department, it gets 2-channel Bosch ABS system with 4-piston caliper and 300 mm disc at the front and slightly smaller disc at the rear.

The Final Words
Altogether, Duke 125 is a smaller version of Duke 390 by comparing the weight to power ratio of the motorcycle. One of the many specialties of this Austrian based bike maker is the quality in engineering. Whether it is 1290cc Duke or 125cc Duke KTM build every motorcycle with real craftsmanship and advanced engineering.
