KTM 125 Duke Latest Updates

The most affordable KTM in India has become dearer once again as KTM has hiked the prices of the 125 Duke by Rs 4,223. The BS6 125 Duke now carries a price tag of Rs 1,38,041 (ex-showroom Delhi), which is a whole Rs 9,764 more than what you paid for the BS4 bike.

The BS6 KTM 125 Duke makes the same amount of power and torque as the BS4 KTM 125 Duke. Underpinnings have also remained unchanged. The only other change is the blacked-out exhaust tip and all-black engine cowl.

125 Duke Specifications

The KTM 125 Duke BS6 employs a BS6-compliant fuel-injected liquid-cooled engine, which generates 14.5PS at 9,250rpm and 12Nm at 8000rpm. Interestingly, there is no drop in power or torque compared to the BS4-compliant version. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. Since it’s a KTM for budget-conscious enthusiasts, the motorcycle lacks a slipper clutch. The KTM 125 Duke BS6 is built on a trellis frame. It continues with the same 43mm WP inverted front fork and WP rear monoshock as the BS4-compliant model. Braking duty is handled by a 300mm front disc with radial caliper and single-channel ABS up front, and a 230mm rear disc.

125 Duke Design

Design-wise, the KTM 125 Duke BS6 looks pretty similar to the BS4-compliant KTM 200 Duke. In fact, it is the only KTM that continues with the old-school Duke looks. That’s because the international-spec KTM 125 Duke comes with a new design language, which looks similar to the KTM 250 Duke BS6. The beefy tank extensions and the petite headlamp and tail section give the streetfighter a proper mass-forward look. The sleek tail section is complemented by a meaty tyre and an underbelly exhaust. The exhaust tip is finished in black and even the engine cowl gets a black finish as opposed to orange, white and black graphics in the BS4-compliant version.

125 Duke Features

The KTM 125 Duke BS6 is loaded with an informative full-LCD instrument cluster. It displays speed, tachometer readings, fuel level, clock, range, distance to empty, and average speed, among other data. The indicators and tail lamp are LED whereas the headlamp is halogen. As far as safety is concerned, it comes with a single-channel ABS.

Editor's View of KTM 125 Duke

  • Upside

    Loaded with sophisticated underpinnings, newbie-friendly enthusiast’s motorcycle, refined motor

  • Downside

    Very narrow powerband, design a bit too long in the tooth, misses out on dual-channel ABS

  • Our Verdict

    The KTM 125 Duke BS6 is the most affordable way into the KTM family. It serves as the perfect stepping stone to performance-oriented motorcycles. The only grouse is you may be able to master the motorcycle rather quickly, and the lack of power means you will be left craving for more performance.

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.

If you are looking for a motorcycle to use in the city traffic for daily commuting (Ground Clearance Duke 125 – 175mm) with more mileage for suggest you go for baby Duke Whereas if you needed daily commuting for a long ride or more on highways (top speed – 138 kmph) with more power and pickup suggest you go for KTM Duke 200.

  • 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

  • One word of advice would be don't let height keep you from getting onto a bike we have ridden bikes on which even climbing on was a pain but once you get going you get used to it. Rest we would recommend that you may please take the test ride of the bike so that you can get the complete jist regarding the riding ease and comfort.
  • I'm 5'5 and I still can't put my both feet on the ground. If you really want to buy the bike, lower the seat height. It might affect your suspension tho.

    KTM launched this bike to make the brand more accessible for the masses, as the Duke 200 was almost 2.10 lakh on road last year. The bike is a huge success in european market. The reason being the L1 lisence restriction, the bikes under L1 category are limited to 11kw (15bhp). So in european countries you have to level up eventually to a big bike. I've been riding this bike for over a year now and this doesn't feel like your typical 125cc bike. It's fast, agile and engine is peppy and the power output is best in class. It's a little underpowered for me and but the bike's handling capabilities is what kept me excited. You can easily commute on this bike, no heat issues faced so far. Rider comfort is good and pillion isn't. And as speaking for its highway capabilities the engine is stress free upto 75kmph at 6200 rpm and you can maintain this crusing speed without any worries, but you downshift regularly while overtaking. It retuned me around 48km/l on highways. Who should buy this bike?, well it's for new riders for whom budget isn't the limitation. For college students who want own a good bike for daily commute and wanna look cool in college and for the KTM enthusiastic who wants the taste of the brand first hand and is on a budget. (I know Duke 125 is costly, but it's most accessible KTM available in India).

    I searched for true specs of KTM DUKE 125 Indian Model. Here are the specs you didn"t know about the bike:Top Speed: 125.529 KMPHFuel Tank Range: 288 KMSAverage fuel consumption: 32 KMPLFuel Capacity: 11LSeat height:810mmThe 43mm upside-down forks are by WP, as is the adjustable, linked rear shock, the four-piston radial front brakes are produced by Bybre (an Indian division of Brembo) and all the lights – from tail to indicators – are LEDs. The service intervals are a relatively short 3,106 miles. The gearbox is smooth and there"s not too much vibration.Basically, this was introduced for Europe but in 2016, it has been discontinued in 2016. Now, KTM bring it back Duke200 styled Duke125 to India.

    Best for beginners.Easy to handle.Premium parts.But there's a problem with servicing centre.They always fools you and try to take more money from your pocket. Don't even do the complete work in free servicing. Ktm service centre are the worst in my experience. Never gonna buy more cc bikes from ktm they'll destroy your bike and your wallet too. Overall Bikes are good from ktm. But service they are providing sucks!!!

  • 4.6

    its "fun"tastic to ride,really enjoying,as a biginer to duke family, its outstanding.no vibrations at any corner.fun riding,we can only compare it with 150 segment bikes.the sound comparatively less with duke 200.but mileage was good.the only defect i noticed that the height,its adjustable but,not so.

  • 3.4

    I guess this is a stupid price for such basic features, ya looks are good but the performance is suitable for beginners...I don"t know why they hiked the price...this doesn"t make any sense....u guys better go for Duke 200 or pulsar rs200...Apache rtr 200 4v is the best option
