KTM Duke 125 Price, Specifications, Features and Colours

KTM Duke 125 has been launched in India at a price of Rs 1.18 Lakhs (ex-showroom). The least powerful KTM motorcycle competes with Yamaha R15 V3 and TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. 

Duke 125 is produced in India for a long time now and earlier, was only for export. Now, the entry-level KTM naked motorcycle has been introduced in India. The deliveries have already begun across 450 dealerships of KTM in India. It looks identical to the other Duke motorcycles, of course with a less powerful engine. It emerges as a pure performance motorcycle because of its high power figures and fitment of dual-channel ABS setup.

In India, the 125cc segment is considered as a commuter department, filled with a variety of commuter bikes. Here, the concept of performance motorcycles usually starts from above 200cc.

The bodywork and design is similar to the elder KTM siblings. 125 misses out on some performance and regular features.

The KTM Duke 125 is powered by a 125cc single cylinder fuel-injected engine. The engine gives out 15 HP and 14 Nm and comes paired to a 6-speed slipper clutch gearbox.

The figures are definitely better than 125cc bikes and even better than some 150cc bikes. KTM’s lightweight frame helps in higher power figures. This engine would give good acceleration features along with a decent mileage figure.

As per our expectations, Duke 125 would deliver a mileage figure of around 45 kmpl. In real-world conditions, the mileage would lower done a bit.

KTM Duke 125 Competition

Recently, the Pulsar 125 was launched in Poland, which we think might come to India as well. Rajiv Bajaj has confirmed that it is planning to launch more affordable Pulsar bikes in India. So, if we compare it on the basis of specs, these two would go against each other.  At this price, it competes with the likes of Yamaha R15 V3 and TVS Apache RTR 200 4V.
