KTM 125 Duke has been launched in India at a price of ₹ 1.18 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The motorcycle will be available across all 450 KTM showrooms in India. The bookings for the KTM 125 Duke had already begun about a month ago.
The 125 Duke gets a 124.7 cc single-cylinder motor which makes 14.3 bhp at 9,250 rpm and peak torque of 12 Nm at 8,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox and gets ABS as standard fitment. Some of the segment first features on the KTM 125 Duke are a trellis frame, Aluminium swingarm and 43 mm upside down forks at the front. At the rear is a 10-step adjustable monoshock. The bike gets a 300 mm disc up front and a 230 mm disc at the rear.
At present, it is one of the most powerful and promises to be a fun-to-ride motorcycle in the 125 cc segment in India. Of course, a buyer in this particular segment is more concerned with fuel efficiency and comfortable ergonomics over power and performance, but for those who are looking to buy a performance-oriented 125 cc ride, this could be the perfect buy.
