KTM has launched the new upgraded MY21 KTM 125 DUKE in India. Priced at Rs. 150,010, Ex-Showroom Delhi, KTM 125 DUKE will be available in 2 colors – Electronic Orange & Ceramic White.
The new KTM 125 DUKE’s distinctive new styling is inspired by the performance powerhouse – KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R. Its design has sharper bodywork with a seat unit that exposes more of the sportier geometry chassis. It gets a new, bolt-on rear subframe, a larger steel tank and steeply rising lines to give it an attractive look.
The ergonomics of this bike have also been altered, with a more authoritative riding position, backed up by revised rider and passenger seats. DUKE riders also benefit from a modified and larger fuel tank which creates better leg contact & feel, and its 13.5-liter capacity will enable riders to ride longer distance.
It has top level chassis and braking components, the completely new WP Suspension front and back. With a maximum output of 14.5 PS at 9,250rpm and a torque maximum of 12 Nm at 8,000rpm, the 125cc liquid cooled fuel injected engine combines an instantaneous power delivery with great refinement whilst also delivering a fantastic and lightning-quick response as claimed by the company.
Speaking about the launch, Sumeet Narang, President (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto Ltd. said “Spawned from the 1290 beast itself and packed full of Duke attitude, the KTM 125 DUKE exudes qualities never seen in this category before. The ultra-lightweight trellis frame and subframe provide razor-sharp control, and the new styling is an absolute head turner. The launch of KTM 125 DUKE in late 2018 had been a point of inflection for KTM’s stronghold amongst the young biking enthusiasts in India. Upgrading that model with this new all capable entry level KTM is another testimony of the brand’s commitment to bringing pure performance to its valued customers.”
