KTM launches all-new Duke

Premium motorcycle brand KTM on December 7 announced the launch of MY21 KTM 125 Duke with the promise of delivering maximum riding fun that punches way above its displacement.

The all-new machine has received multiple enhancements for 2021 to keep the KTM 125 Duke at the top of its game, said a press release.

Instantly noticeable and impossible to ignore is the KTM 125 Duke’s distinctive new styling, added the release. The design is flanked by more aggressive, sharper bodywork with a seat unit that exposes more of the sportier geometry chassis.

The ergonomics of this lightweight streetfighter 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 and feel, and the 13.5-litre capacity will take ambitious riders further than ever, the release said further.

Boasting top level chassis and braking components, the completely new WP Suspension front and back further adds to the superior proposition of the new KTM 125 Duke.

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.

Mr 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.”
