Summary
This baby Duke will never make it to India as the engine claims a very low fuel efficiency figure as compared to other 125cc bikes in India. Also, the components of KTM 125 Duke are all same as 200 Duke, giving no reason to place it under INR 1 lakh. License restrictions are also not available for this class of motorcycle in India.Honda CB125F is an upcoming naked commuter motorcycle that sits right above the Honda CB shine with its interesting design. The motorcycle can gain fair chunk of sales as there are no naked street bikes below the 150cc segment in India. It will be powered by a 124.7cc, air cooled engine producing 10.46 BHP and 10.2 Nm of torque. It will use a 5-speed gearbox and claim a wet weight of around 128 kg. If launched in India, the design can be a hit among millions of Honda fans, making it a successful model in its initial days only.
