2012 KTM 125 Duke

A CHART BUSTER IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN

What a start! Within weeks after its launch in 2011, the 125 Duke zipped right to the top of the 125 segment.
The reasons are clear – legal to ride for the Young and Young-at-heart, the 125 from Mattighofen is an absolute joy to ride, has fully-fledged motorcycle technology and comes at a reasonable price. The driving force is a state-of-the-art 4-stroke single, specially
developed for the 125 Duke, with a sophisticated DOHC 4-valve cylinder head and liquid cooling.

It delivers 15 hp – the legal limit of many markets – without breaking a sweat. The extremely economical engine not just has a well-balanced power delivery but also great refinement, thanks to an integrated balancer shaft. An advanced electronic
fuel injection and 3-way catalytic converter ensure clean emissions. A very light steel trellis frame, equipped with high quality WP suspension components, is the basis for dynamic fun in the twisties.

Masses grouped tightly around the centre of gravity, like the main silencer right behind the engine, also do not exactly hurt. Even the smallest Duke has firstrate components wherever you look, like the powerful braking system developed in co-operation with Brembo. It just is a real KTM.
