Model Description

The 125 DUKE is not a toy. It's a genuine motorcycle, up there with the best in its class and better equipped than some of the big bikes. Back in 2013 it was the first 125 to receive ABS as standard, now it's at that forefront again with an LED headlight, a TFT display and optional integrated connectivity. On top of that, the refined 4-stroke single cylinder with fuel injection system and 6-speed transmission combines class-leading performance with limited thirst  – except for adventures. There's no better place to start.
The KTM 125 DUKE's state-of-the-art, single-cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts once again underlines KTM's development strength.
The KTM 125 DUKE's state-of-the-art chassis, with its characteristic, lightweight steel trellis frame, turns this bike into a real surfer through the bends. Masses grouped close to the center of gravity maximize maneuverability and precision – and prepare the 125 DUKE to win the rush hour slalom day in, day out.
The KTM 125 DUKE provides plenty of space and freedom of movement and has a knack for relaxed touring, alone or two-up, as well as committed cornering. Unsurpassed operability and large contact surfaces ensure optimum control and maximum feedback, while the upright, relaxed seating position provides a perfect overview all day long.
At first you notice that LED headlight. That aggressive front. That predatory stance. When you come closer, you feel its steel fuel tank and various high-quality cast parts. In the end you realize that the design and production standards of this bike were set sky-high. Just like the KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, who's little brother this bike is very proud to be. Or is it the other way around?
KTM know its customers like to modify and to travel, which is why the PowerParts range boasts a huge variety of accessories and luggage options across its Street range of sportmotorcycles – past and present. All PowerParts are developed alongside their chosen machine, meaning that KTM riders only get parts that perfectly complement their ride and provide that important 'factory fit' straight from the dealer.
