KTM 125 Duke Latest Updates

The KTM 125 Duke BS6 has been launched in India at Rs 1,38,041 (ex-showroom Delhi), making it dearer than the KTM 125 Duke BS4 model by Rs 5,541. KTM says the motorcycle will be available by the end of February 2020.

The BS6 KTM 125 Duke makes the same amount of power and torque as the BS4 KTM 125 Duke. It continues to be powered by the same 124.7cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor (but in BS6-compliant guise), which churns out 14.5PS at 9,250rpm and 12Nm at 8000rpm. The engine retains the 6-speed transmission too. Underpinnings have also remained unchanged.

It continues with the same WP inverted front fork, WP monoshock, 300mm front disc with radial caliper and single-channel ABS, and a 230mm rear disc. According to KTM, the kerb weight has gone slightly up from 141kg dry to 141.4kg in the BS6 version.

The motorcycle looks the same as the BS4 model externally, except for the engine cowl. It doesn’t look as sporty as before with a black finish instead of the black, white and orange colour scheme. Thanks to the strict emission norms, the underbelly exhaust looks fatter than before and is finished in black.

In terms of competition, the KTM 125 Duke BS6 rivals the recently unveiled Yamaha MT-15 BS6, which is set to be launched pretty soon.

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.

Q. Is it comfortable for a 5.5 ft boy - Duke 125?
  • The wide flat bars, the 818mm tall seat height, and the rear-set footpegs are exactly at the same position as the 200 Duke. You do have to reach forwards to get to the bars but it is not as much as the new 390. So, you might face issues to find comfort in city rides and while taking U turns. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers

    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

KTM 125 Duke Highlights

125 Duke Specifications

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.

125 Duke 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.

KTM 125 Duke Competitors

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.

ZigSays

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.
