KTM 125 Duke Latest Updates

KTM India has revised the price of its entry-level 125 Duke once again. A price bump of Rs 2,148 drives the cost of the bike to Rs 1,32,400 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The 125 Duke was launched at an introductory price of Rs 1.18 lakh (ex-Delhi) on 26 November 2018, the KTM 125 Duke is the smallest in the Duke range in India. KTM has kept the styling of this motorcycle the same as the 200 Duke, presumably to keep costs in check. The KTM 125 Duke is India’s first 125cc motorcycle with a liquid-cooled engine. The 124.7cc DOHC motor churns out 14.5PS at 9250rpm, and 12Nm at 8000rpm. A 6-speed transmission transfers power to the rear wheel via a chain drive. Just like the 200 Duke, the 125 also features an aluminium swingarm, WP upside down front forks and WP monoshock at the rear. The motorcycle comes to a halt using 300mm front and a 230mm rear disc, with single-channel ABS. The tyres are also the same MRF Revz rubber as the 200 Duke.

The motorcycle competes with the Honda CB Hornet 160R, 2019 Suzuki Gixxer and the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 in terms of performance.

KTM RC 125 Latest On: The price of the KTM RC 125 has been increased from Rs 1,47,213 to Rs 1,48,700 (ex-showroom Delhi). This makes the faired bike dearer by Rs 1,487, and is the first price hike which the RC 125 has received since its launch.

The supersport comes with the same mechanical setup of its elder sibling, the RC 200, but with the same engine as the 125 Duke. The pricing is on the higher side as you have to spend Rs 8,420 extra over its more powerful rival, the Yamaha YZF-R15 v3.0.

Editor's View of KTM 125 Duke

  • Upside

    Comes with top-spec components,Has the same dynamic setup as the 200 Duke,Most affordable KTM motorcycle

  • Downside

    Engine lacks punch like its elder siblings,Learners could out-grow the bike quickly,Is pricey for a 125

  • Our Verdict

    The 125 Duke packs the same handling setup of its elder sibling but in a more approachable package. However, it does not feel like a racy KTM and rivals offer better bang for buck.

KTM 125 Duke Highlights


The 125 Duke is powered by a 124.7cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. It generates 15PS of power and 12Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. Though it belongs to the 125cc segment, this motorcycle actually competes with 160cc motorcycles in our country. KTM has left no stone unturned when it comes to premium underpinnings as the 125 Duke comes with WP inverted front forks and WP monoshock at the rear. A generously-sized 300mm front and a 230mm rear disc combined with dual-channel ABS brings this baby Duke to a halt.

Design and Features

The KTM 125 Duke is styled along the lines of the 390 Duke, which itself was shaped after the 1290 Super Duke. There’s a host of sharp and steeply raked design elements like the LED headlamp, fuel tank and even the exposed tail section. KTM has deliberately kept the bodywork down to a minimum, as the exposed trellis frame really enhances the motorcycle’s sporty intent. The 125 Duke comes with a full TFT instrument console, a 13.4-litre fuel tank and a dry weight of just 137kg. The ergonomics is pretty upright with rear-set footpegs to give it a slightly sporty stance. KTM offers dual-channel ABS as standard too.


Honda CB Hornet 160R: The Hornet has similar power figures, gets an LED headlamp and ABS (though it’s a single-channel unit) too. However, it misses out on inverted forks, a trellis frame and other upmarket bits that are present on the baby Duke. The CB Hornet 160R is priced at Rs 91,443 (for ABS STD variant)

Suzuki Gixxer: The Gixxer’s power output is also in the same ballpark as the 125 Duke, but the Austrian hooligan loses out on torque output by 2Nm. Just like the Honda CB Hornet 160R, the Gixxer packs a single-channel ABS. Though the bike has an information-rich instrument cluster, it loses out on LED lighting. However, it is more affordable than the Hornet, at Rs 87,871 (ex-showroom Delhi).

Bajaj Pulsar NS 160: The Pulsar NS 160 enjoys the benefit of having an oil cooler, which helps in running the engine at higher rpms for a longer period without stressing it too much. With an output of at 15.5PS and 14.6Nm, it makes slightly more power and torque than the 125 Duke. The bike is also priced pretty competitively at Rs 85,690 (ex-showroom Delhi). However, it misses out on ABS.


The KTM 125 Duke is a perfect motorcycle for beginners who do not want to miss out on top-class mechanicals and features. However, it is expected to be priced at around Rs 1.25 lakh. 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.

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!!!

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
