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.
