The KTM 125 DUKE engine not only delivers arm-wrenching torque and hair-raising acceleration, but also good manners in everyday use, all with outstanding fuel economy. This lightweight, compact engine packs a good punch too, with a respectable 11 kW (15 hp). Thanks to the ingenious intake design and the meticulous fuel injection system, the KTM 125 DUKE is ready and waiting to tear-up the streets and the circuits alike.
The KTM 125 DUKE comes as standard with ultra-lightweight, high-performance upside-down WP forks. Using the latest open-cartridge technology, these forks not only perform above expectations when pushed to the limits, but are also nice and easy to maintain. This makes them perfect for all aspects of riding, from relaxed cruising to hammering around on closed circuits and everything in between.
At first you notice that LED headlight. That aggressive front. That predatory stance. When you come closer, you feel its steel fuel tank and multiple high-quality cast parts. In the end you realize that the design and production standards of this bike were set sky-high. Just like its big brother, the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, the KTM 125 DUKE looks like a naked, angry, untamed little beast.
Dual circuit BOSCH ABS is standard equipment on the KTM 125 DUKE. Use it to your advantage to enhance control and safety.
