KTM 125 Duke ABS Review

Overview

KTM Duke 125 is a small segment version of the new KTM 200 Duke ABS with a 125cc engine. The bike gives us a fresh, aggressive design based on the same lines as Duke 200. For India, things have changed a bit as KTM packs Duke 125 in the body of 200cc Duke to save some amount on the ex-showroom price tag. The present generation Duke 125 is manufactured in India. Outside India, KTM Duke 125 is available in the shades of White and Orange with a tubular base frame.

The New Duke 125 comes with conventional naked street bike styling from KTM, coming with some sharp edge looks, which are sure to make heads turn. With the promising reliability of the brand, the bike looks like a replica of the 200 Duke with some toned down features, using the same components as the elder sibling. KTM 125 Duke is the only bike in the 125 cc segment which can show off a glorious TFT display (international spec model only, Indian version gets standard display) which adapts its illumination to the surrounding light conditions.

The KTM 125 Duke also has extended stylized tank shrouds which are visible up to the headlights. The fuel tank and the high quality cast along with other aesthetic features give you a feel of a very impressive naked street bike. This one too does not disappoint, with a 124.7 cc engine giving out a power of 14.5 ps @ 9250 rpm and a torque of 12 Nm @ 8000 rpm.

It comes with a single cylinder four stroke engine which is liquid cooled. The bike comes with 6-speed manual transmission. Given such power-packed performance in the 125 cc segment, the KTM Duke 125 has a mileage of around 35-40 kpl. It uses fine technology to ensure good user experience and enables control. It comes with an electric start, attractive split seat, pass light and pillion footrest.

The KTM Duke 125 comes packed with high-quality upside-down WP suspension. The shock absorber has a progressive spring, where pre-load is adjustable providing a well-balanced suspension. It has some serious style quotient, with the tank design being a show stealer. As a fan of KTM, this looks like a fair deal in the 125 cc segment and also carries the royalty coming with the brand name. It lies in the same class as Honda CBR125R and Yamaha MT-125 as competition.

Best Features: TFT info screen, Slipper Clutch, Ride By Wire, LED Headlamps, Adjustable suspension arms !!

Pros: Overhauling design from the previous generation Duke 390. Looks will remain appealing for the coming 4 to 5 years.

Cons: The waiting period of the Duke 390 is more then 1 month after booking too. Price increases in different states, so have to go deep into pockets!!
