The 125 Duke is KTM’s most affordable, and smallest capacity motorcycle to be launched in the country. With on-road prices of their earlier entry-level bike, the 200 Duke pushing two lakh rupees, the company needed a new starting point in their line-up for India. It brings all the styling and mechanicals of the 200 Duke, with a smaller engine that makes for a bike that’s much easier to live with in terms of approachable performance, higher fuel efficiency and improved refinement. KTM 125 Duke Price & Variants: Rs 1.18 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) KTM 125 Duke Specs and Features: The 125 Duke is powered by a 124.7cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-valve motor that makes 14.5PS @ 9250rpm and 12Nm @ 8000rpm. This baby Duke is also the only bike in the 125cc category in India that gets a 6-speed gearbox. It has a kerb weight of 148kg – the same as the 200 Duke, and gets top drawer components such as 43mm upside-down forks at the front and a monoshock at the back, along with a 300mm front disc brake and 230mm rear disc. It also gets the same 110/70R17 front and 150/60R17 rear MRF Revz-C tyres from the 200 Duke. KTM 125 Duke Colour: The KTM 125 Duke is available in three colour options – Black, White and Orange. All three colour options come with a black frame and orange wheels. KTM 125 Duke Performance & Features: On the Bajaj test track, the 125 Duke managed a speedometer indicated 108-110kmph. Acceleration is significantly slower compared to the 200 Duke, and thanks to tall gearing, ends up losing steam in 6th gear.
