Q. Which is better bike Duke 200 or Duke 125?
  • Ever since its debut, the KTM 200 Duke has been the benchmark bike of its segment and still remains so. If you’re looking for a bike that offers great acceleration, loves to corner and has a hooligan nature, the 200 Duke is the bike for you and a great option for someone entering the world of performance bikes. The only grouse we have with the KTM 200 Duke is its super stiff ride quality and the fact that ABS isn’t offered even as an option. On the other hand, the KTM 125 Duke is a perfect motorcycle for beginners who do not want to miss out on top-class mechanicals and features. However, at that price point, there are more powerful yet relatively less sophisticated options out there. Only time will tell how the market responds to a premium, small displacement pocket rocket like the 125 Duke.

  • Both are completely different from each other.. As they both built on same platform and use of same parts the handling is similar.. If need power blindly go for duke 200 it is the best revving engine in the low end... Need a mileage with ktm looks then go for Duke 125... If your on budget & planning for duke 125 instead go for the Pulsar 200 NS it makes more sense then buying of same priced duke 125

Q. Does KTM 125 Duke worthy of money as in this price range we get 150cc or 200 cc bikes? Actually I am confused between Duke 125 and Gixxer SF 150?
  • The KTM 125 is one of the best available entry-level naked sports bikes. Now since the bike is a naked sport, the bike gets all the features such as USD Folks, frugal engine and aggressive dynamics for Duke which makes it compatible in terms of aerodynamics. Moreover, the Duke 125 gets it's DNA from the elder siblings which do not require the introduction in terms of performance. Moreover, If the bike is compared to Gixxer SF 150, the Duke 125 would be a frugal option with decent acceleration and performance. However, we would suggest you to visit the nearest authorized dealership so that you may evaluate both the bikes on the basis of performance, comfort and ride quality.
