The KTM 125 Duke shares its design with its elder sibling KTM 200 Duke; the bike also uses a trellis frame in other KTM bikes. The motorcycle gets a muscular and raw look. The split headlamps enhance the front part with projector headlights and LED DRLs.
The side gets mounted by exhaust which uses a special three-chambers with catalytic converter. The design gives it a sleek look and LED lights, and an exhaust underbelly complements the bike’s tail. The high-quality seat of the bike provides the rider with a good experience even on long routes.
With the slight change in the design from the previous model, the bike’s weight has also increased. The KTM 125 Duke weighs around 159 Kg which is a bit heavier compared to other bikes in this segment.
KTM 125 Duke is available in 2 colours:
- Electric Orange
- Ceramic White
KTM 125 Duke is available in 1 variant:
Looking at the features of the KTM 125 Duke, it is complemented by many new and supportive features.
At the front head, the bike gets a digital console that displays the gear readings indicating position, fuel indicator, tachometer, real-time fuel efficiency, average fuel efficiency, side stand warning light, a clock, and many other readings.
The bike is also coupled with a shift indicator placed in the centre. Apart from this, the bike gets single-channel ABS in terms of safety. The fuel tank of the bike got increased to 13.5 litres.
The perfectly placed footpegs and handlebars make it easy for the rider to go for long rides without getting exhausted.
The KTM 125 Duke gets powered by a 124.71cc BSVI single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine ( used in earlier bikes as well); it can generate the power of 14.5PS at 9250 rpm and the max torque of 12 NM at 8000 rpm.
The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and misses out on the assist of the slipper clutch.
The bike has a split trellis frame used in KTM earlier bikes as well; the bike rides on triple rate inverted telescopic fork suspension at the front and double rate mono-shock suspension at the rear.
The bike has disc brakes on both front and rear tyres; single-channel ABS complements the motorcycle, and a 300mm disc at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear tyre perform braking duties.
